About Me

My photo
I am in my sixth year teaching kindergarten and absolutely LOVE what I do. I am so inspired by all of the wonderful teachers and their great ideas in "Blogland", I am hoping that I can give back :).

Farm Mini Unit

I updated this Mini Unit after using it a few times with my class....They are loving the Plural Nouns Activity!  I can't believe this school year is almost over!  A rainy week here means we probably won't get to go out to recess much :(.  How many days do you have left until the last day?!

Long Vowel Activities

This is finally almost done :).  This is the first year I have explicitly taught long vowel/vowel patterns to my kinders!  I think so far, it is going really well!  Hopefully I will have this bundle of activities posted to my TPT store by the weekend :).  Happy Friday Eve!

My class loved this measurement activity we did today {courtesy of Mailbox Magazine :)}. We decorated butcher paper to resemble the approximate height of each animal and then compared the measurements! What fun activities have you used for this standard??

Dramatic Play????

It's almost like a thing of the past! Do you have time for dramatic play in your classroom??? If so, how often do your kids get to do "free choice centers"?? I try so hard to make time for dramatic play each week! I am so lucky to have a full-time Teaching Assistant, and because of her, THIS has happened:

An amazing parent of a student donated some props :)

Don't forget to check in ;)

How cute is this?!  My teaching assistant is AMAZING! 

My class LOVES this part :)

The lanyards are labeled with ticket agent, pilot, and flight attendant :)

Place your luggage here :)

Anyways, I really want to make sure I incorporate a new dramatic play theme every few weeks.  What are some fun dramatic play themes you have tried?!

Ready for take off!
