We Are the Gardeners

I am in LOVE with Joanna Gaines' picture book 
We Are the Gardeners
It is a wonderful spring themed children's book that brings out important lessons and gardening information within a story of a family of young gardeners.

Your students will love learning about gardening, and the important lesson that we don't give up when things don't work out the first time: every failure teaches us something and makes us braver for the next time!

I've made a book study, packed with companion activities to go with this book. These fun Common Core aligned literacy ideas and guided reading activities are perfect for a spring theme!

The Good Egg

We just love the book The Good Egg by Jory John and Pete Oswald!
It's such a great book to teach kids about self-care and how to deal with stress. 

Good Egg likes to be good, but is surrounded by eggs that are annoying and naughty. He tries to correct them and clean up after them, but it causes his stress! The book shows how to take care of yourself and let go of others' actions.

I have created a companion pack that will help your students dive into the story. I have included lots of text-to-self connections so students can see how to apply some of the lessons Good Egg learns in their own situations.

Here's a sneak peek:

Math Mats for All Year Long

I've always loved using math mats as math centers in Kindergarten! (And my students did too!)
Math Mats for all year long! LOTS of different options for counting practice, including numbers, tallies, dominoes, and ten frames! These options provide further learning and challenge your young learners to process numbers in different ways. You are able to easily provide differentiated learning opportunities for your students with this pack! #mathmats #counting #kindergartenmath
Many math mat packs are sold with a specific number on the mat, meaning you have to print 20 mats for 20 numbers...using tons of ink, laminating sheets, and time...not to mention having to store hundreds of mats! 

So I made a pack of generic math mats for every season (it's fun to switch them out several times during the year!) I've even added 10 extras that can be used at ANY time of the year!

You only need to print (and store) one set because the pack uses cards to show the number to work on.

I've included several different types of cards, to differentiate learning. Students work on SO many skills: one-to-one correspondence, number recognition, counting, tallies, ten frames, and dominoes.
