I have been on a little blog hiatus since the holidays, and I appreciate the break, but I have missed blogging about my fabulous kiddos. We have been busy learning all about word families and it has been soooo much easier for them singing songs that teach the content of the lesson. I recently mentioned an over the top, fabulously fantastic lady who has catapulted my class into the singers they want to be!
YEPPERS-She ROCKS! Literally...check her store out and you will see.
We have been singing all of these, and more, OK, all of them really. Here is what we sing for letter and sound recognition...
Here are even more resources, and if you love saving money, you are going to love this amazing deal over at Educents! I have teamed up with 17 other amazing sellers to load your classrooms with 19 resources!
My Name That Shape, 2D and 3D Board Game Unit included will surely be loved by your students!
My kiddos loved it in kindergarten last year, my own little Pre-K'er loves to play the "happy shapes" game- as she fondly refers to it, and my first graders love it this year! It is a great way to informal assess and practice the skills of 3D and 2D shape identification.
For a limited time it is $29.99 from Educents which is over 70% off! It also includes these other great products so there is sure to things you love! (They even have $10 off for first time customers… so it can be even cheaper if you have never bought anything from Educents!)
The items included in the set have been carefully chosen to help you fill your games table with a variety of Common Core Standards.
One of my faves is the Getting Your Child Ready for Kindergarten product.
What do you do to get your little one ready to start kindergarten? I noticed when I taught kindergarten that the children who were read to on a nightly basis, or more, were not only used to tuning into books, but could pay attention longer. They were able to talk about other books that were similar to the one we were reading, or they could make text connections to real life situations. The more we read to the kiddo, the bigger the vocabulary, deeper the understanding and comprehension is higher. Later, like this year in first grade, their fluency (how fast they can read) comes creeping in on assessments. Reading the same book over and over (driving moms and dads crazy) is a fabulous boost for fluency! There is so much learning and love that comes from a simple 15 minute snuggle-fest and read aloud to your favorite little one.
Here are a few books I love to read to my Pre-K'er.
