Looking for an easy way to help your students keep up with their progress? Data notebooks are here to save the day! I love that they can be used for a formal data notebook, or even informal data markers for report cards! Julie says "I've been searching for a data notebook that is "primary"...something my students could color instead of lots of different graphs I fill out myself. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! Love this so much and really anxious to start using it with my kinders! Thank you for the excellent resource!"
Ahhhhh......this sounds exactly like my brain! I really need to organize my office, but let me see which version of me will win today! 📸: @sweatpantsandcoffee #weekendvibes #netflixtime #organizedhome #metime
I don't know about your students, but every year, my students love to whip out their scissors and cut random pieces of paper. Before you know it, you have confetti all over their desk, and don't get me started on what the floor looks like!😑⠀ ⠀ So you know what? I decided to give them permission to cut! Cutting Practice is an easy to prep, purposeful activity, that is perfect for little hands. It can be used for morning work, a center, early finisher work, etc., to help your students to practice their fine motor skills through cutting! Just print and add scissors! Easy peasy!⠀ ⠀ ✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️⠀
"Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me!" I remember chanting this as a kid, but the truth is words DO hurt. I love the previous book in this series, so when I saw this one I just knew that I had to have it! This is a great way to share with kids that we have to think about what we are saying, and that our words whether they are mean or nice, are important. Oh.......and I need some adults to read this and take it to heart as well! 😏 😒
I love pattern blocks, they are so versatile! In addition to using them for math, we use them for building letters as well! ⭐ With these pattern block mats, students can practice capital as well as lowercase letters, beginning sounds and handwriting! ⭐ Sadly my love affair with the foam pattern blocks have come to an end, because I can't sanitize those. Sigh......time to bring out the loud blocks that can be washed!
What do you do with your little ones who struggle with fine motor skills? You see the effect everywhere, from their writing, their ability to snap, button, buckle, or tie, etc. Check out this post on 6 of the best fine motor activities for your kiddos! I guarantee you already have a majority of the materials in your classroom! I'm also working on figuring out how to make individual fine motor bins. They still need fine motor practice! I'm thinking that the little bundle of photo cases from Michael's will be perfect!
