Noun and Verb Sort Freebie!

Grab it's why it's hot.  It's a noun and verb sort that includes pictures to help kinders better understand the difference between a noun and a verb.  Enjoy and would love your feedback!

What do the Letters Say??

Oh, baby!  This is a great find!  My class (and me too!) love this song by Have Fun Teaching.  The great thing about this song is it says the letter sounds fluently.  It's our goal to say these letters as fluently.  In a short amount of time, I've already seen great improvement.  Because there is high interest, no doubt we'll meet our goal quickly.

Fall Freebie

It's time for one of my favorite games - Shake and Spill!  Students will get a cup of tokens - bears, counters, pom-poms, dollar store pumpkins, etc.  I give my students 8 - 12 counters.  Then, they our them out (and yes, we model the right/wrong way to pour - this is a keep step).  They count and record the ones that land on the pumpkin and the ones off the pumpkin.  Then we count how many we have all together.  Great intro for addition and allows students to physically decompose.

Enjoy the FREEBIE and share with your friends!

Noun and Verb Sort

Help your kiddos understand nouns and verbs a little better with pictures to sort as nouns or verbs.  You could make this self-checking by putting an N or V on the back.  Great for literacy stations.

Time to Decompose Numbers!

Hi Everyone,

Hope your year is off to a great start.  In keeping with what appears to be my "current theme", I'm adding one more new type of book.  It's Decomposing Numbers Books.  Students will be able to see the visual and understand better than ever how to decompose a number.  Fun themes are included:  super heroes, animals, sports, dinosaurs and more.  Check them out below!
