Three Ways to Read

I pinned this from and made it my own.  I left some spots to add pictures to help my kinders remember what it says.  I will update the photo when I print the pics.

ABC Order Center

I made this center with a project board and library envelopes.  Each envelope has a letter of the alphabet. The last envelope says words.  I will write our popcorn words, color words, class names, etc. on sentence strips (probably cut in half).  The students will read a word and then put it in the correct envelope.  To clean up, students will remove the cards and return them to the words envelope.

Happy Veteran's Day

Students will follow teacher directions to assemble this soldier.  Our predictable chart will be "A soldier . . ."  Students will unscramble their sentence and glue it under the soldier.

Where is the turkey?

This pocket chart will be used during calendar to reinforce number recognition.  You can't really see it in the picture, but each card has a numeral from 1 to 30 in the lower right hand corner.  The turkey will hide in the leaves and the students will guess where he is each day.

Letters In Your Name Graph

We did this as a center activity.  Each student wrote his or her name one letter per square.  Then they glued them to the chart and counted how many letters.  We looked at who has the most. least, and the same.

Seasons of the Apple Tree

We painted the students' arm and hand brown and stamped it four times.  We used scrunched tissue paper for the spring apple blossoms.  Summer leaves were sponged on and apples are thumbprints.  Students ripped orange, red, and yellow construction paper for fall leaves.  Glitter made the snow.  After, we labeled each season and wrote My Apple Tree.

Brown Bear Alphabet Game and Popcorn Words

I made these alphabet cards for our Brown Bear unit.  Some students are still learning letter names while others are ready for initial sounds.  I stamped the back with a Stamping Up! set so I can use them for both groups.  I also cut some bears for our popcorn words.
