UPDATE: I have created bundles of month-long literacy centers, 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}

NO PREP Cute and Easy Christmas Cards for Kindergarteners

No prep, simple Christmas card making for children
We used Bingo daubers to create some special Christmas cards for the parents.

I had my students use the daubers to make a circle to be a wreath. They added some red dots to look like holly.

They used the daubers to create these Christmas trees as well. They had to do some careful counting to make sure that the tree goes from wide to narrow. A star sticker, a square brown trunk, and some colourful dots as ornaments, and it was done.

On the inside of the card I had them trace the words using a dashed font. This saved lots of "how do you spell...." questions :)

Creative Teaching Press GIVEAWAY!

I was so excited to have Creative Teaching Press asking me to review one of their products!
I was sent this Easy Daisies Starter Kit and Classroom Management Tool:
 
Here is the starter kit. It allows you to organize the day, so that your little one will understand routine and will know what comes next. Since the headers are magnetic, they can be moved over when a task is complete. So easy!

 some magnets included in the set
 
The Class Management Tool is amazing! The graphics are bright and because it's all magnetic, things can be changed out each day as needed. Perfect for those kids who need to know when each subject will happen and to help ELL students to follow along with the day's routine.

 Both kits contain blank cards so you can write what you like!
 
Creative Teaching Press has graciously allowed me to give a starter kit AND a classroom pack for YOUR grade level away to one of my blog followers!
