Oriental Trading- Valentine's Day

Oriental Trading has sent me some more goodies to make your Valentine's Day party even better!
Make sure to check out all the Valentine's goodies they have to offer by clicking HERE!
Now, check out some of the things they have sent me.  A big part of our V-Day activities is our card exchange.  Which means we need to make some cute Valentine bags.
I got these great white craft bags.  They are the perfect size for all those cards.

I am going to use these heart shaped doilies to write each kiddos' name on then we are going to decorate using some other great crafting materials!

I got some self-adhesive foam pieces to decorate the bags.

I also got some Valentine stampers too!  There are about 50 in a pack, so I plan on letting my kiddos take one home after we finish decorating!


Oriental Trading has a lot of cute V-Day cards too!  I grabbed these cute superhero cards that come with a bracelet!

A fun V-Day craft idea is to take these cute heart shaped pony beads and stringing them on a pipe cleaner to make a bracelet.  Challenge your kiddos to make a pattern out of it.

The day after Valentine's Day is our 100th Day!  Yes, this will be a crazy but fun week!

Oriental Trading has some fun 100th Day supplies!  I found these great certificates and pencils to hand out on our 100th Day!

I hope you found some goodies to use in your classroom this Valentine's Day! :)

Valentine's Day FREEBIE

If you are planning ahead (said no teacher ever) for Valentine's Day I have created a fun freebie.  It is a Write the Room activity which will get your kids up and moving around the room!r  Or place cards in a center and have them write the words.  I sometimes have my kiddos pick a card and write a sentence using that word on the back too :)

Oriental Trading-Holiday Edition

I'm back to share some fun holiday ideas from Oriental Trading!  If you are like me, you have a holiday party before the long winter break.  The kindergarten team at my school picks an activity and the different kinder rooms rotate through each room.  This year Oriental Trading sent me some FUN holiday activities, games, and prizes!  Let's just say this year's holiday party will be the best one yet!
Every year my kiddos make a gift for their parents.  This year I got these fun winter frames!  Each frame comes individually wrapped with all the pieces needed to complete.  We will take pictures that last week of school and I will add that to each frame!  Click HERE to find other fun Christmas crafts Oriental Trading has.
Like I said before each kindergarten room picks an activity to do.  This year I chose to have games!  When each class comes in, they will rotate between each of these games below!



I got a huge bag of these mini polar bear erasers.  I am going to hand these out as prizes for playing the games.
 The polar bear finger puppets and snowman pencils I will add the the Christmas gift bag I am giving each kiddo in my class!  I had the Jungle Animal finger puppets in my prize box and my kiddos LOVED them!
Oriental Trading has so much to offer for your Christmas and holiday parties!  Hopefully you found something you can use!

Oriental Trading Fall/Halloween Party

I'm here to share with you some fun Fall/Halloween party ideas with you from Oriental Trading!  I was excited when Oriental Trading contacted me because last year my "Spooky Centers" was a flop.  As my kiddos were packing up, one asked when we were going to do our Spooky Centers...
This year, I stocked up with some fun activities and games that can be used during your party.  The best part is it can be educational!
Here are some fun games that I got from Oriental Trading:
Candy Corn Bowling- Have your kiddos record how many they started with and subtract how many they knocked over!  Great subtraction practice and how cute are those little plastic candy corn pins!?
Jack O Lantern Bean Bag Toss- This one is fun because you can have your kiddos add up their points (older kiddos) OR change the numbers so you kiddos can practice adding smaller numbers.
After playing some games, you will need some PRIZES!  Check out the prizes I picked up!
I also picked up some Monster pencils!
Check out these fun crafts and activity items!  
I like these Pumpkin Patch sticker scenes because they can be used for your Halloween/Fall party centers or you can throw them in after you finish up a lesson!

I love paint dotters and these are perfect to use with those!  These Fall Dot Marker Activity Sheets have many different scenes and you get 50 in one pack!

I recently blogged about these foam leaf stickers!  These can be used for counting, patterns, or sorting activities!
I received these community helper vests a couple months ago.  I found these Community Helper Masks to go with them!

I found these Community Helper Masks to go with them! 



 Perfect for your dramatic play area or during your community helper unit!
I hope you found some fun things to include in your classroom this Fall :)

Fall Freebie

Fall is here which means cooler temps and changing leaves!
I got some foam leaf stickers from the Oriental Trading Company.  I did similar word problem activity a few years ago!

Here is what we did with them!  Each kiddo got their own tree to color.
Once they had their tree all colored I gave them a random amount of leaves.  
They stuck the leaves wherever they wanted on or around their tree.
When they were done they traced the bottom sentence and filled in the blank with the number of leaves they were given.

They LOVED this project and it was great counting practice!  If you want a copy of this page click HERE!
