Hanging Stories

I just LOVE hanging stories in the classroom
to read over & over again! 
Don't you!?!

In our kindergarten classroom, I believe it is important to give the students many opportunities to engage with print in authentic and purposeful ways.  The class works together creating the pictures & writing the words.  The students love and take such pride in reading the story  that they and their classmates have created!

Milk Cap Learning Fun!

My students LOVED playing this game during summer school
to review their sight words. 
All you need is CLEAN milk caps, Mod Podge, paint brush,
& a chip/coin. 
You can also purchase our mini unit too.  WINK! WINK!  
One student will hide the chip/coin while
the other students are closing their eyes.  NO PEEKING!
It was nice playing on the carpet because
you could not hear where they were hiding the chip/coin.
The students took turns guessing where the chip/coin was hiding
by saying the sight word and pointing to the milk cap. 
The student who hid the chip/coin would turn over the milk cap
to see if they found it.
Play continues until the chip/coin is found. 
They did not want to stop playing this game!
How cute are these pictures for beginning or ending sounds!?! 
We also have letters in our mini unit too!

CLICK HERE to use in your classroom!
HOPE that you had an AMAZING summer. 
THANKS BUNCHES for reading our blog!

Peep Day in Kindergarten!

WARNING....Lots of " Peepin' " fun pictures! 

The students made a "Peep House" for their Peeps to enjoy!

The students chose a "Peepkin" from the basket. 

The students opened their egg to find a blue, pink, or yellow Peep inside.     

The students placed the Peep in their homes.  All day long the students played, worked, and read with the Peeps! 

The students wrote about their Peep.  Day of adoption, name, color, birthrate, & parent's name. 

Peep Care ~ Eat carrots, drink water, play toilet tag 

Peep Care ~ Eat guacamole, drink Coco~Cola, play tag 

Peep Care ~ Eat strawberries, drink milk, play Hide-N-Seek

Found this fun idea at The Schroeder Page.
(Adapted it to fit my kindergarten kiddos!)
