The first 6 centers have students counting and clipping numbers 0-20.
The last center is a literacy center.  This center has students clipping the beginning long vowel sound.
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are having a great week!

Clip Card Centers

I have added several clipping centers to my store.  These centers are fun, engaging, and require little prep.  Just print the cards, laminate for durability, grab some clothespins,and they are ready to go.
Hope you all are having a great week!

Back to School Ideas

I am going to share a few things I made that are useful for starting back to school.

Have you read Don't Squeal Unless It's a Big Deal by Jeanie Franz Ransom?  I love this story!  It is a great read aloud for the beginning of the year.  I made a couple activities that can be used after reading the book.

The first activity is a scenario sort.  This is a great whole group activity for reviewing what classifies as a "squeal" and a "big deal".

After the whole group activity, students can assemble this simple pig craft that would look great displayed on a classroom door or bulletin board.  Students can write or draw a picture of an example of a "squeal" and a "big deal".

Next up, I always use this name practice activity at the beginning of every year.
I love this name activity because it practices 3 important skills:
*Name Recognition
*Color Word Recognition
*Letter Recognition

You can purchase the file here.  The file is editable and comes with easy directions that explain how to customize your class list.  This document is great to use year after year.

Teen numbers are usually tricky for Kindergarteners so I created two activities to practice them.  The first is a Color By Code activity.  It practices teen numbers by having students find hidden shapes.

The next activity also has students searching for teen numbers.
I love using these practice pages to have students review color words while also searching for capital and lowercase letters.  Two versions of each printable are available: one with counting practice and one without.

The next two activities are just for fun to place in centers for independent practice.  Print the roads and train tracks and then laminate for durability.  These activities come with school buses and trains that have shapes on them.  The student must match the correct shape to the road and then practice "driving" the train or bus on the track or road.

Last up, is the King of "Ing".  I know this is for later in the year, but he was too cute not to share.  Students simply cut and paste the king craft and then practice matching the "ing" words.  He would also look cute on a door or bulletin board.
That's all for now!  I hope you found something useful as you start your new school year!
