Teeny Tot Preschool and Kindergarten update

IMG_9747web.jpg

So I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done an updated post on what the Teeny Tot has been up to. So I thought I’d put one up for you all today. She’s going through my Letter of the Week program, but she’s really ready for more now and so I’m throwing in more of my K4 Kindergarten activities to challenge her a bit more. She still likes the fun Letter of the Week preschool games so I still let her do those for fun as well. Anyhoo, here are some of the things she’s been working on these days… I usually still pull out similar Letter of the Week letter activities for her, so this week she’s going back through the letter D. The D is for Dinosaur letter hunt is from my Kindergarten Curriculum. She has to locate and mark all of the upper and lowercase letter “Ds”. She normally uses a highlighter, or a do-a-dot marker. But you can also have them put stickers on the letters, circle them, or whatever works best for you. You can also click here to download the Kindergarten Letter Hunt … [Read more...]

K4 Kindergarten Organization

IMG_9312web.jpg

Hi everyone! I’ve had so many questions on how to organize my K4 Kindergarten Curriculum. And since the Teeny Tot will be using it some this year, I thought now would be a great time to post on it.     Since there are so many printables in this curriculum, I thought it would be easiest to keep each PDF together, then store each one into a file folder. As you can see above, I wrote the names of the printables on the tabs in pencil so I can reuse them. For example the Letter Hunt Worksheets are in that first blue folder, then the A-Z Handwriting in the following yellow one, and so on. For the things I wanted to re-use, I placed the pages back to back in page protectors then put them in 3 ring binders. This way the Teeny Tot can write on them with dry-erase markers, and re-use as needed for additional practice. I have two binders for the re-usable sheets, one for phonics activities, and one for math activities.   Anything that is related to phonics and is a … [Read more...]

Free Number Graph Worksheets

numberstickerpromo.jpg

  Hello fellow teachers! Today I made some super cute Number Graph worksheets for the Teeny Tot! These sheets are super cute and they work on number recognition, word recognition as well as counting skills! Directions: ~ Print pages 3-22 on copy paper ~ Have students add 1 sticker per square for each number as indicated. (I’ve added light gray dots to help preschoolers know which boxes to add their stickers to…see below for a blank version…i.e. no dots!)   Alternate Ideas: 1. Color in the correct amount of squares 2. Place any manipulative of your choice in each square, i.e. goldfish, cheerios, beads, rocks, shells, etc. 3. Laminate and have students write an “o” or “x” in each box using dry-erase markers. 4. Place sheets in page protectors and have students write an “o” or “x” in each box using dry-erase markers.   --> Download the Number Graph Worksheets here! <-- (If you’re having trouble downloading the file, RIGHT click on the above download link, … [Read more...]

Kindergarten Dolch Sight Words 1

kinderpromo.jpg

Good morning to all of you totally awesome Kindergarten teachers! I’ve had several requests to make Dolch Sight Word cards, so I thought this cute little caterpillar was a fun way to learn and review sight words! Today I’m sharing the Kindergarten Dolch Sight Word Caterpillar cards with you! --> Download the Kindergarten Sight Word Caterpillar <-- How to use the caterpillar sight words: Print pages 3-7 on cardstock and laminate for durability if you choose. Page 8 includes blank caterpillar pieces so you can add your own words! TIP: Laminate two sheets back to back so the printed sides are facing out, and the blank sides are touching. Run both sheets through your lamination machine, then cut apart and cut out circles. This will create a circle that is laminated on one side, but not on the back side. This helps with creating a backside that is not slippery and can be taped to the wall. Add the caterpillar head to a blank area of your wall where you plan to add the … [Read more...]

A-Z Cursive Handwriting Worksheets

cursivepromo.jpg

Hi everyone! After publishing my K4 Handwriting Worksheets (manuscript) I had a ton of requests for Cursive Handwriting Worksheets. It took me a bit to get them completed, but here they are!   As usual, you can print on copy paper and have students write with pencil on the sheets, or you can also print on copy paper, then laminate or stick inside a page protector and allow them to use them with Expo Dry-Erase markers! That way they’re re-usable and you can practice your sheets as many times as needed!   --> Download the Cursive Handwriting Sheets <-- The line spacing for these sheets should be appropriate for kindergarten, first , or second graders who are just starting with cursive handwriting skills. Each letter includes capital and lowercase letter practice. The first letter has arrows to help students properly form the letters, and the rest are simply dashed font for them to trace. Then the bottom line is blank with only the starting dot so they can … [Read more...]

Elementary Daily Learning Notebook

elementarynotebookpromo.jpg

  Hi everyone! As promised, I have the elementary level Daily Learning Notebook for you all today! After seeing the cute one I made for Teeny Tot’s preschool this year the other kiddos all requested one as well, so I made one that was a little more of a challenge. It also turns out that this helps with some of the daily things that Math U See doesn’t necessarily cover as often so it was a win-win!     --> Download the Elementary Level  Daily Learning Notebook <-- MAC USERS:  MAC users are saying that they get black lines across the file. If you install Adobe Reader, then open the file with that I think that takes care of the issue. Apparently Safari tries to open the file in preview or something instead of full view.  Hope that helps!   The first page talks about today's date, days of the week, and numbers: What day is it? What was yesterday? What will it be tomorrow be? Write the date Color in the day number Is … [Read more...]
