Book Club Wish List

I wanted my students to be more involved in self selecting books and building our classroom library.

Plus we need to work on our cutting skills as well.

I created this sheet for morning work one day.

I don't know about you, but I always have extra book order forms, so we are going to put them to good use.

Then I looked at books that the children picked and cut those out to display in our room as class picks. I also added books for upcoming themes as well.

I would love to hear how it went in your room!  Tag me on FB or IG to be entered to win free materials!

November Learning

What's hoppining in the Kinderpond this month?

Nutrition, finishing up fall, Giving Thanks, and our five senses.

Here are some of the things we're going to use:

First Up:

I printed several sets and color coded them on the back to keep the same pieces together :)

Cube Rolls
I print only one in color.  I attach it to a Manila envelope.
I laminate the whole envelope.
Then I cut along the top where the opening is and 
this is where I put all of the copies I need.
I put one copy in with a HUGE yellow O across the whole page.
The O stands for original.
I "train the troops" to leave that in the copy bin, 
so I make copies of the sheet.
The yellow highlighter doesn't copy,
so it's a win!!

I print off the cube part in color too and
laminate it (sometimes)
and put it in a pocket cube.
It is easier if they are on cardstock 
so when they fall out of the cube, 
the kids can just pop them back in!


So I color code these too. Before I laminate, I draw 3 lines on the back going up and down, so the back of each card gets a color.  So when they get mixed up, we can match the colors :)

I wrote some very cute, if I say so myself, senses guided reader books... and lost them when my computer crashed :( 
I have the hard copies, can you guess what is on my to-do list?

Kindergarten Builds Again!!!!!

We did "work" too ;)

We worked on the word "am"

Then I brought out my witches finger pointers

We played a memory game.
They got 16 cubes.
Under the cubes are two matching boxes under.
So under a cube there would be say 6 dots.  They have to find a match :)

We used a skeleton arm pointer.

Kindergarten Builds

If anyone asks, we worked on STEM and fine motor.  If the kids ask, we played ;) 

Y'all I took these photos last week... we were under a freeze warning last week lol
Y'all it's October lol

Lifting weights ;) 

We played a math game.
We used this cube stair chart and a spinner.
We spun the  spinner.  Connected the cubes and added them to our stairs.  
We played for about 15 minutes and we could have played longer :)
