Five For Friday!

Management Tip!
If you are going to do a project in your classroom for example, making play-doh, give each student a colored sticker and assign each step by a color.  This way everyone will have a turn!  

A fun way to make "spaces between words" STICK!

My student teacher made these positive notes home on her Cricut machine.  I might have to get me one of those!  Simple and cute!!! 

Mrs. Apland, a FaBulOuS kindergarten teacher right next door to me, made this class book for her student teacher.  Seriously...the cutest idea ever!  A book of reference letters by Mrs. Apland's Kindergarten 

This was my son's page.  LOVE HIM! 

We made a FREEBIE of this game just for you!

Holiday Happenings!

"No ELVES about it!"  The students had fun making this holiday craft! 
Do you have a sensory table in your classroom?  Here is a FUN~TASTIC way to celebrate the holiday.  Decorate a Christmas tree!  Mrs. Ramseier, another kindergarten teacher in our district, let me share this idea with you.  I BELIEVE this is one of the best sensory table ideas and the kids want to do over and over again!  

Look at all the fun stuff the kiddos can use to decorate the tree! 

If  you would like to use this Santa Wish List in your classroom you can find it in our TpT & TN shops!

My students has a HOLLY JOLLY time with this activity and were truly engaged!

Christmas is filled with kids & kisses!  We hope you enjoy your time with family & friends this holiday season!

Deer-riffic Craft for your Classroom!

This is an easy craft for kids to create, and it makes an adorable bulletin board! 

Have you heard of the DEAR sweet blogger...
Kindergarten With Susie!?!  
You can get this ADORABLE reindeer unit in her TpT Shop!
In the unit you will also find a "Reindeer Tree Map".  The students can generate the facts on the tree map and use them to write sentences and small books.
FYI ~ I used the swirly cheeks from Kindergarten with Susie's Snowball Happy Unit unit. I just LOVE them!     
Remember...On Dasher, on Dancer, on Master & Visa!
