Practice Those Sight Words With FREE Sampler!

   I don’t know about your class but mine needs all of the sight word practice they can get.  Of course it has to be “FUN” and not just flashcards.  Sooooo….. we made these practice books that they can take home when they are finished with cutting, pasting and writing those pesky words.  We wanted something that forced our kiddos to look at the individual letters that make up the word. We also wanted them to recognize the word when it’s surrounded by other words.  I will say they have been a big hit.  The kids enjoy taking home books that they can read to their parent.  (An extra perk is it also lets mom know what to help with!)

Students cut the letters on the bottom of the page and glue them in the boxes, then trace and circle the word in the sentence.

Each booklet has about 20 words.  The booklets are organized by the Dolch word lists.  We wanted a way to keep track of the words they know so we added a page to record that data in each booklet.  See below.

Kindergartners Learning to Write Their Names!

      New school year is here and I am forever looking for authentic ways for my kinders to write their names. One way is by writing their name on our daily/weekly graphs. Look at the pictures and you will see those who can write, those who don’t have a clue and those who write completely backwards. This is primarily due to the new Kindergarten Daily Writing activities. I am able to print the exact pages each child needs which makes differentiation a breeze! Some students are still working on fine motor skills while others are ready to write on lines. Just take a look! Click on pictures to see the resources.
     Until next time…

Thank a Veteran!

My HERO, my DAD!
  My dad, brother, father-in-law, brother-in-law and son-in-law are all veterans. Everyone is touched by a veteran in some way. This is a time when we should reach out and thank them.
  No matter what your political views are, these men and women have sacrificed something to help protect ME (us). All have stories to tell but most won’t share those stories.
  Growing up I did not understand nor appreciate what all my dad sacrificed. I didn’t understand (and still don’t) what he buried deep inside (psychologically) or the physical pain he endured but never complained about.
  Let’s teach our children. Reach out and thank a veteran this week, this month, this year. So……..to all the veterans in my life, thank-you! But my biggest thank-you goes to my HERO, my DAD! Thank-you. I love and miss you!
