SMACKERS and Black Friday Sale!

Today in Math, we played a fun game I've called Smackers.
This game was a fun way to practise number recognition!
I started by putting 3 students at each table.
Here are my students in their starting positions:
Hands are flat on the table in front of themselves.
The number cards are in random order on the table in front of them:
When I called out a number, students had to SMACK the number with their hands. The first one to smack the correct number got to keep the card. Play continued until all of the numbers were called. Then students counted how many cards they had in their pile to determine the 'winner'.
The cards are from {here}.
On another note:

Sale is one day only!

New Literacy Stations & More FREE Lists

Here are the latest literacy work stations my students have been working on:


I posted cards of Brown Bear characters with letters on them all over the classroom.

Students have to find the cards, match up the letter with the picture, and record it onto their response page.

This FUN activity is from Jayme at Kinderbabies. You can get it {here} for free! (Thanks, Jayme!)


This week, the listening centre is a little bit different. Which, of course, makes it special...and more fun! 

Students are engaged in an online storytime, at Barnes & Noble's website.

This round, they are listening to Pinkalicious, which is a perfect book to go along with all of the colour learning we've done in Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

You can find the online storytime {here}. LOTS of great books are included- check it out!


I've mentioned this activity before {here}, but it is worth repeating!

Such detailed and FUN practice with letter recognition!
Students highlight the uppercase & lowercase letter from beginning to end.

These a'mazing' mazes :) are from {here}.

Are you a list-lover like me?

I just posted 7 free weekly and daily to-do lists, featuring my current favourites:
chevron, moroccan-style, polka-dots, damask, and gingham.

Here are a few samples:

You can download them {here} to keep that clipboard/binder looking cute!

FYI: I have created bundles of month-long literacy centres, to make things easy for Kindergarten teachers!
The packs include literacy activities in these 5 areas of learning:
1)Writing 2)Listening to reading 3) Word work (sight words) 4) Phonics/alphabet 5) Phonemic awareness
The packs are laid out, week by week, for the entire month. They include 5 stations for students to rotate through per week, with all of the components you’ll need for each activity.
Assessment tools are included to help keep learning on track and to keep your students accountable.
Learning is spiraled throughout the month, to help students build on their prior learning. 
Check out the first pack in the series {here}
