Free Christmas TpT Product

I just added a Christmas before and after game to my TpT store.  Click on the picture to download your free copy.

Fun Friday!

The students had to take the sticky notes with times written on them and make the clocks say the right time.

The students take an addition sheet, bear counters and a black and orange color mat to a spot.  The student look at the first number in the problem and put that many bears on the black side of the mat.  Then they look at the second number in the problem and put that many bears on the orange side of the mat.  Then, they count how many bears there are altogether and write the total in the answer box.  For some students, I will use an orange marker and a black marker to color code their addition paper.

I am thinking of making this a seasonal activity by changing the mat colors and using seasonal counters.

Putting number words in order to 20.

Roll 1, 2, 3, or 4 die (depending on what level you are on), write the total in the box and then count on using the acorns.

This is a number comparing activity that I laminated from the mailbox.

The Three Little Pigs

This week we are doing a unit on favorite books. One of the books included in the unit was The Three Little Pigs. Today, we read the original big book by Paul Galdone. In math we are studying clocks, so when we got to the part about the wolf asking the pig to meet him at certain times, I passed out Judy clocks and had the students make their clocks show the time that the wolf was supposed to meet the pig and predict what time the pig would actually leave. After we read the story, I had the students write a paper about what they would have made their house out of if they were one of the three little pigs. Then, we worked on the letter g and I worked with small groups on a reading story about pigs. The students took the story home to read again for homework.

A kindergartener would build his house out of bricks.

One kindergartener would choose bricks because they're hard.  Another kindergartener would make his house out of bricks because it would look cool.

End of the unit reading book, "The Three Cats".  We read it in small groups first and then I send it home for homework.

Every year at the end of the year, I give my kindergarten students a hand-made picture collage as their graduation present.  This year, since I have 10 students, I am going to be taking advantage of online photo sales.  Here are some that are going on right now at
