DIY Snowman Ornament

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 No comments
Made 8 of these little guys for gifts today! They were moderately easy. The hardest part is the face. I used white paint to swirl around and coat the INSIDE. Then, I drew the face on with sharpie. The rosy cheeks are done with a sponge and very very little pink paint.

New/Old Job Starts Monday!

Thursday, December 5, 2013 No comments
Just met with my old boss and I get to start work again Monday! Yay! I taught Reading & Math for six months last year before I left for student teaching and really missed it. Surprising to me since I thought I would never look back. I can't wait to have my own classes again and get back into the swing of things. Being at home is really boring when you aren't in school anymore. Be on the lookout for fun teaching printables and stuff now that I've started back up again! Hooray!

Rhyming Game & Rhyming Song

Monday, November 25, 2013 No comments
This was a fun rhyming game we played in Kindergarten. First we sat on the carpet and had a pile of objects in the middle. Each child was also given an object (each child's object had it's rhyming match in the middle pile). These objects are really easy to find throughout a classroom. Then, after they all found their match they went back to their seats to make their rhyming cards. They cut apart these pictures and glued the rhyming pairs to the front and back on index cards (front - cat, back - mat). Also, try this rhyming song with the object pairs... they love it!

To the tune of "Do You Know The Muffin Man"
"Cat and hat are rhyming words,
they're rhyming words,
they're rhyming words.
Cat and hat are rhyming words,
they sound a lot alike."

Winter Creativity

Two Colored Beans Addition

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 No comments
This is a great idea for number bonds and addition! The kids loved it and had a blast! Just take some beans and put them on newspaper. Spray paint the beans so that 1 side is 1 color and the other side is another color. Each student gets 5 beans and they shake them in their hands. Then, they put them on the table. They should color their beans as they lay and then complete the number sentence.

"Merry Mail" Christmas Card Holder

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 No comments
Love love love this one! Made this yesterday and it only took about an hour. I chose a piece of wood that we had out in the garage and painted it with about four coats of red acrylic. Then I used my cricut to cut the vinyl letters and snowflakes. I dolled it up with some buttons, too! Then, I hot glued on the ribbons strips. To hang it on the wall, I put two screws in the back and attached some wire. This is a perfect craft for the holidays and will be a great way to display cards. I will put another pic in this post when I get some cards on here! Great for teachers who end up with A TON of cards!!

Snow On The Ground

Yay! There is snow on the ground! It's so funny how people change.... I used to HATE snow and all things winter. But, now as I've gotten older I so look forward to fall and winter. I love sweaters, hot chocolate, Christmas music (which is already on the radio! yahoo to that! haha), decorating, blah blah blah! Love love love it!

Sight Word Game

Friday, September 27, 2013 No comments
This is a fun printable game that I would like to share! I of course made it an editable PDF so that you can just type right into the leaves. Pick 6 sight words to put in the leaves and on the sides of a die. Roll the die and the kids have to color that word. Only color one at a time so that you can roll the word more than once.

Kindergarten Counting 0-10 Pony Beads

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 No comments
I did a lesson plan yesterday that went great! We counted with pony beads on pipe cleaners to start the lesson. Then, we did this fun worksheet with stickers. This aligns well with the Common Core Math Standards!

- pony beads
- pipe cleaners
- number cards
- worksheet
- round circle stickers (you can get these really cheap on Ebay)

Modeling - I had the students sit on the carpet and count with me as I put pony beads on pipe cleaners for each number card 0-10.

Guided Practice - I used the Elmo projector and we used pony beads and pipe cleaners as a class at the tables. I put one number at a time on the screen.

Independent Practice - Worksheet.
