Reindeer Centers

Enjoy the HOLLY days with these "REINDEER" centers.  

The students will measure the reindeer with "reindeer noses" and graph how many. 
The students will build the reindeer sight words and write the word on the recording sheet. 
The students will roll a die, pick a reindeer nose color, paper punch that many colored noses, glue them on the recording sheet, and then write the 5 partner to match.  
The students will spin the spinner and write the ten-frame number on the recording sheet. 
The students will walk around the room, read the word, and write the rhyming word that matches on the recording sheet. 
The students will roll the cube, say the shape, and graph the shape rolled.  Continue until one shape reaches the top.

Scarecrow Stuffin"

This week Deedee Wills shared a fabulous resource from Differentiated Kindergarten Blog about sensory bins.  Scarecrows are too cute not to share what we are doing in our sensory table! 

The students can stuff and un-stuff the scarecrow.  Then they get to label the scarecrow.  After all the fun, the students will label a scarecrow on a worksheet to take home. 

Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, It's Off To Raking I Go!

Have A Good Fall, Y'all!!!

Even Monsters Need Haircuts Activity

After the students listen to the story "Even Monsters Need Haircuts", they will color in a monster.
The students will choose which hair color he/she would like and the teacher tapes it on.
The students HAVE FUN cutting their monsters hair! 
The students had SO MUCH FUN!

Flag Hands

Last Friday, I had the opportunity to meet with a group of Wisconsin Kindergarten teachers from Eleva-Strum, Mondovi, Fall Creek, Altoona, Gilmanton, & Augusta.  That was a whole lot of Kindergarten teachers together collaborating about how our classrooms work.  Yes...we are VERY LUCKY to be able to do this during the school year!  

While we were meeting in one of the Altoona classrooms...I was looking around at all the goodies hung on the wall for the kiddos to see...and I saw this!  
Of course...it is Monday, and I have it in my classroom already for my kiddos to see!  
THANK YOU for the great idea!

Fallin' into Fun!

Here is a FUN way to add a little FALL into your classroom.
This may be as much decoration we get up this season...but the kiddos are lovin' it! 
We did "side 1" together as a class.
"Side 2" the students repeated the steps themselves!

THE BEST THING IS...where ever you are standing in the classroom you have a smiling pumpkin looking at you!

Have a pumpkalicious weekend!
