Morning Work

Here are some of the morning work the kindergartners are working on instead of completing a morning worksheet.

Here they were given pink paper to cut hearts... can you tell which photo I took first??

Clip Cards with clothes pins.

Love Bugs

Empty candy container with letters underneath and add heart letters on top.

Color sorting with pony beads.

Apparently she only wanted to sort the red ones lol

Letters written on cardstock to be covered with plastic hearts from the Dollar Tree or
candy conversation hearts.

Name Ideas at Kinderpond

I try to do different things for our weekly names but that doesn't always work. So here are some great ideas that I use for practicing your child's name.

Here are some of my name ideas.
Most of them, I store them in a drawer together.
All of the papers at the bottom are now in sheet protectors. ;)
(Pictured Duplo blocks, leaves, cookie letters, magnets, letter beads)

Idea #1:

Write/type your child's name across entire paper.  Have your child use magnetic letters.
I also have felt letters from Target that is great to change it up.

Also use puzzle pieces for added fun!

I grabbed some letter stickers, clothes pins, and a craft stick.
I wrote letters under where the clips go.
You could also swap out the craft stick for:
 *an index card
* construction paper

Don't want or have the stickers? Write the letters with a permanent marker.

The next few are paid resources but I really like them :)

Some of these ideas are adaptable for older children and learning the alphabet order.

I would give my students a baggie with their own letters and when they entered the room in the mornings, they would put the letters in order.

For the clothes pins idea, use a sentence strip.

Target: Bullseye's Playground

Apparently the Dollar Spot changed it's name to Bullseye's Playground! 

Here was my Seuss Haul:
We used the stampers for math and creating.
The erasers were added to our sensory bin.
The pen is for a pointer.

Here are:
magnetic games around the go-go gear art
Robot magnets, jar of superheroes felt board and...
band aids lol

Growing Capsules
Erasers lol
Those brown boxes are fossil and pirate kits
 Bunny Pointers

I use them as counters but also use these resources:
