The very first thing that I did a few weeks ago was to update the cover. Here's what I wanted to work on:
My back to school resource. It had a beginning of school hat, necklace, first day of school sheets and a few math and literacy centers to get the year started. NOW?! OH. MY! I CANNOT WAIT TO PRESS PRINT when I get to school. It went from 96 pages to 170 pages. Can you tell I got VERY excited while creating?
Here's a few sneaks at what it looks like NOW.
I totally redid my sounds centers! I changed it to Sound Smash. I cannot wait to play this game. Every letter has a card, but the teacher only chooses a few. Let's say 4 letters to play. The teacher also pulls out the corresponding pictures for those 4 letters. The kiddos make 4 playdoh balls to go under each letter and then pull from the stack of picture cards. They have to figure out which letter makes the sound on the picture. When they find it, smash down a ball.
I cringe when I look at the before! I changed my number mania over to a clothespin game. It will be so much easier to manage now and more meaningful.
I have a game included where you need letter cards or a mat to sort pictures to. LOVE the newer version. I am going to cut the letters apart and have the kids to sort under the picture. That wash tape has my heart!
I am so excited about updating this! You all seriously do not understand! If you already own it, you're in luck! Just go back to your purchases and redownload this baby! Here's a few more new additions... I added some memory book pages, cutting and tracing sheets, added Pre-K to the beginning of school sheets and SO much more!
My directions page is even PRETTIER! The others were pretty bad!
There is a chalkboard and white version of alphabet and number playdoh mats for the beginning of the year or these could be used anytime during the year.
This is SOME of what is included! I am super stoked about this.
It is now 20% to celebrate all these new goodies! Remember, if you already own it - just go redownload. I'm going to see what else I can get updated this week. My to-do list is pretty long in that area.
