Spidery Fun!

















I am going to KEEP CALM and attend the Wisconsin Kindergarten Association Conference this weekend.  I cannot think of a better way to enjoy a Saturday than spending time with Deedee Wills and other Kindergarten teachers!

Brilliant Idea ~ Reminder ~ Giveaway...THAT'S ALL!

I. Am. Brilliant.   NO!  Just SHARING an idea that I had Saturday night at school creating my lesson plans and will save my blogging friends time! 

I found a digital paper on TpT that is free and I LOVE!
I chose the color of digital paper that I would like to use and copied onto a Word Doc...or PowerPoint 
Clicked on Wrap Text & In Front of Text
to make the digital paper bigger to fill the whole paper
Then....I printed it to our color copier at school!
Finally....I copied the 2 sheets back-to-back.
Let's see the difference...



I LOVE THIS SO MUCH MORE....Don't you!?!
I even used to different patterns of digital paper to make 2 sets.  Now they won't get mixed up! 
Stop by and check out our "Thematic Centers Linky"
by clicking RIGHT HERE!

We also LOVE to giveaway an item OF YOUR CHOICE from our TpT Shop.  All you have to do is leave a comment below and Monday night during THE VOICE we will pick a winner!  

Have a HAPPY Sunday!

Thematic Center Linky 1

Our thematic learning centers help the kindergarten students explore favorite classroom themes as they build and reinforce essential concepts that enhance their learning.

This linky is AWESOME because "YOU BELIEVE" and it is a place where you can link up and share anything you enjoy about thematic centers...

  • A blog post about the thematic centers that you are using in your classroom
  • A facebook post about your thematic centers
  • Thematic centers that are in your TpT or TN shop
  • Thematic centers you have purchased on TpT or TN and would highly recommend to other educators
Check out the fall centers we will be learning from the next 2 weeks:

Each center has a "I CAN" card for the students, classroom helpers, or the teacher to review the directions on how the center works! 









We believe that integrating thematic units into your day is most effective for kinder kids.  It makes learning and teaching a lot of fun for teachers and students! 

PLEASE link up and SHARE what you are doing in your classroom!  You have until October 13th to link up to this post!

Remember...to include a link back to "Thematic Centers Rock ~ Don't Stop Believin'" in your post.  


Thank you & Let's Play!

Writing-To-Read


Just SHARIN' a TpT writing product 
we are using in our classrooms.  
First I chose which one I wanted to complete in front of the class
and printed it poster size (150%) to model to the students. 
One of the students said to add Mrs. Osterman passing the bus....so I did! 



At the beginning of the school year in Science we learn about our "5 Senses." This really helps our students when they start adding detailed pictures to their kinder writing. We blogged about our anchor chart HERE!!  



This writing unit from LIVE LOVE LAUGH KINDERGARTEN would make a great activity for center time, small groups, or early finishers. The possibilities are endless all year long! Please check out LET'S WORK ON WRITING  at Live Love Laugh Kindergarten's TpT store!

August unit is FREE.  The rest of the months are only $3.00!
I just LOVE his one missing tooth.
I wish you could see it too!
Thanks Bunches,
