Turkey Feathers

My turkey activities might need to turn into snow activities after our first snow!  I am not ready for winter!
Each kiddo got a body and strips of paper, the "feathers".  Strips are a lot easier to prep!
They glued their feathers on, counted and wrote the numbers on each feather!  I added a strip that my kiddos traced and wrote their number in the blank.
How adorable is that face!?

Five for Friday

Fun letter review!  Letter bean bag toss!  I wrote each letter on a paper plate.  Everyone got a turn to toss a bean bag onto a letter.  They would say that letter and then sit down.  This could be played with any concept you are working on!

We are talking about the past and in our book they talked about Lincoln Logs!  Look what we had in our classroom to play with!  They were so excited to play with toys from the past. 
We are in our number unit for math.  We counted the letters in our name for this lesson.  I created this sheet.
 Then everyone wrote their names on a square construction paper!  My kinders glued their names, counted the letters, then wrote their name on the line!  They rocked this activity! :)

We used this paper saver sheet to practice the word are.


We are talking about numbers and this little one took his colored tiles and made a ten frame! I think he's getting it!

How was your week?

Five for Friday

You did it!  You survived Halloween week!  We aren't allowed to celebrate Halloween because some consider it a religious holiday, BUT we still had a pretty fun 4 day week...yes we had Halloween off!! :)

I finished my Half Sheet-Alphabet pack!  My kiddos rocked our letter review!  One buyer took each letter and made it into a small book!  Genius!
 
We still love our cutting practice with these sight word pages!


I love this time of year because my kinders are finally trying to sound spell!  
"This weekend I got new clothes."


The closest I could get to a "Halloween" activity.  Graphing skittles!  This was the first time we tried graphing and everyone seemed to get it!:)


We had Friday off to do our grades!  I had mine done so I spent the day doing work in my classroom and planning with my team!  Hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween.

Pumpkin Shape Trace~FREEBIE

I have fun pumpkin themed math center for you today!
I bought these shape cards from Target!  If you don't have these cards, that is ok!  You can use any shape cards or shape dice to use with this worksheet!

I put my worksheets in a page protector to save on the copies!

I had my kiddos grab a shape card and then trace that shape.

They LOVED it especially tracing the star and heart :)

Grab your sheet for free HERE!

Shapes

My long weekend has officially started!  We had a 2 day week, with conferences, and a work day thrown in there!  Whoo whoo!
We are still learning all we can about shapes!  Our shape unit is not amazing, so we have to make it more fun!
I made these little shape posters (aka shape unit in the works)!  

I put the shapes in the middle of our circle and everyone got  a chance to throw their bean bag on a shape.  Whatever the bean bag landed on or which ever one they were closest to they would identify.

One of the other kinder teachers and I always try to come up with a fun art project every week.  And when we say come up with it usually is right as our prep is ending...

Since we are learning about shapes we decided to make a "Shape Pumpkin Patch".  I drew some shapes and wrote out a sentence that had our kiddos counting the pumpkins.
Quick, easy, and super cute! :)

Five for Friday

Happy Friday!  All I can think about is our 2 day week next week!! Check out our week!

We are still working hard on learning our color words.  I put these cute crayon color word cards and magnetic letters in my Word Work center!


Roll and trace!  I was going to make this sheet just a roll and write, but it was the first time we have done it, so I added the tracing part with the hopes my kids could figure it out if they forgot my directions.  Of course the NEVER forget my direction though ;)

Math center!  I made these during my student teaching and I still use them.  
Color word writing center!  Find it HERE!

We are working on shapes in math and it is not that exciting.  I made a fun PowerPoint with each shape!  Every few slides the kids JUMP and we get all excited and too loud, but we are having fun so it is ok :)  I used to do the same thing with flashcards and sneak a jump card in it, but they were always too small!  This worked like a charm! :)
