Here are a few things that we've done over our first seventeen days that my kids are doing an AWESOME job at!
My kinders LOVE LOVE LOVE (and so does their teacher) the BTS Cooking Pack from Miss Kindergarten. Here are just a few pics of some of our math centers and reading centers that we've been working on about a week and a half. I printed the 2 directions pages on 2/page and put all the materials in baggies. It helps with easy cleanup. The bags are hole punched and I have the entire pack in a binder.
This has to be their favorite. =) How many meatballs?
Also, we've been using Don't Forget My Numbers. I LOVE these posters. Cara Carroll has the best things ever.
We've been doing these for morning work since we literally have fifteen minutes in the room before I have to start reading. I bring this up on my smart board and we check it together. I love it because it's to the point and quick to check.
I had to throw this in! Our 1st day K which weighs A TON and is just about as big as some of them...
As far as September, this is coming up on my FAVORITE time of the year to teach. I love pumpkins, apples, bats, and FALL. I love these books.
Here's some other things we've done this month...
We played the paper plate name game. "If your name is on the plate, pick it up." I love this game. It is HILARIOUS.
We practiced using the RIGHT colors to color people and pictures. I think they did pretty good the first time. We also talked about how to give clothing.
Our names that I hang from the ceiling the whole year. When they make little things, I add it to their names. It makes it super easy for them to look up and see their things hanging in the room.
