Rhyming Game & Rhyming Song

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."

In the spirit of winter (& Christmas of course  --  yes, I'm an early one... if it wasn't for my fiance I would have my tree up :) ) I made some winter/Christmas crafty things today. Enjoy!

Two Colored Beans Addition

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.

Red Stripes

I feel like a candy cane... or where's waldo? haha. Anyway, today my mission is to meet with the florist for our wedding. I hate not having a teaching job right now but, it sure does give me plenty of time for this wedding junk.

"Merry Mail" Christmas Card Holder

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!
