Happy First Day of School to my sweet daughter Megan! Have you started yet? Well, big news yesterday was the sale on tpt. It is still going on today, so be sure and grab up those items while they are on sale…Check yesterdays post for the discount code. Now on to today’s post. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with the kindergarten teachers at Bleckley County Primary School, in my own home state, GA. We worked on the math Common Core standards.
The teachers gave her clues about her “number” and she had to guess the number on her headband. What a hit! This idea is from the new packet, “Yee Haw! Wild About Numbers!” It has the dot plates already made, just have to copy and you are ready to go. I play the same game with tens frames,fives frames, rekenreks, and dominoes. They are also in the packet. Once the kiddos are familiar with this game, it is great as a partner activity during centers.
I also posted another new packet a few days ago called “Cut, Stack, Staple, and Read”. It’s a super easy pack to implement and is a great way to practice fluency. To get started all you have to do is to hit copy and it is ready to go. The slide above shows the steps and the slide below shows the cover of the new packet.
