Marvelous Monday!

Today starts our short 2 day week!  Can't wait to have a few days off with family and friends in WI!  
We were extra busy in room 32 today!  I saw the cutest worksheet in my copy room at school about sorting words and letters, but did not copy it because I have felt lately my kids are on worksheet overload!  So I did the next best thing, I created the worksheet in real life and had my kinders sort words and letters on our white board!  This worked out fabulous because they could see the differences in them both and we could discuss what makes a word a word!  Of course we have those tricky letters that are words AND a letter but my kiddos picked up the concept fast!





I was in WI this past weekend for my friend's bridal shower, so of course I found myself at Hobby Lobby!  This store is amazing and I got the cutest little letter charms for my Word Work center!  My kiddos LOVE LOVE Daily 5 (like scream and cheer every time I announce we are doing Daily 5, kind of love) and I am always looking to add more activities for them!  I paired this activity with one of my activities from my Let it Snow! pack.  I took the sight word match game cards and added it with the letter charms and we had a fabulous Word Work center!  The students picked a card and made that word on the pipe cleaner! :)





Here is where you can find the word cards!

  1. Hi Kimberly Ann,
    I LOVE that you created a 'real life' worksheet - I think we all need to do more of that. It's so good for kids to get away from pencil and paper and manipulate and create. How fun! I would love to have been a student in your class on Monday. :o)
