I have now made it through *almost* three weeks of kindergarten!
In case you just read that and was like..."ummm this called the first grade jungle?" I moved from Louisiana this summer and took a job in Texas teaching kindergarten! It is just too much nonsense to change the name of my blog so I will be posting ideas that could work for either grade level!
In kinder this week we started Daily 5! We went to read to self starting last week, and my oh my! My kids blew my mind the first day! We are already at 5 minutes!
We also are using this awesome phonics technique called zoo phonics! It is so precious. Each letter has an animal and an action to help kids remember their sounds. Today, we did this cut and match activity that will be their first word work station.
Give it a google search and let me know what you think!
Now.... you have waited through all my pictures,
Really Good Stuff (the best teacher store) has asked me to do a giveaway of one of their products! YAY!
They are great for my kindergarten tables! This is my first year with tables, so these are great to put all the crayons and pencils and erasers. It is organized with compartments so you can easily find a place for everything. I have put two of the same color on the tables, and then that is the name of that table! It is great since it is a great visual cue!
I also got these awesome label holders with it! They clip on the caddies and ANY basket! I knew my kids would mess with them, and then I needed some way to label my social centers and TA-DA I put them on here. The come with the border to write and a plastic square to keep it nice. They stay on the basket really well too!
Love these, and the great news is you can WIN your own set! Here is how:
