Color frogs Laura Kelly Style

Using my ultra-fabulous frog die from the talented Laura Kelly Designs, I bring you

Color Frogs!

This literally took me less than 5 minutes from start to finish.
If I had to print out the sentences and then cut them out... this is 
Super quick- it's what we all need!

Look everyone!!!  You can finally use that white crayon!
I am stoked about this!!!!

I was thinking that you could keep them together OR
have the color word separate.

For the first time, I might have the color frog over the top of the color word.

As a Laura Kelly Design Team member, I was given the tools to make this and many more products. Every idea posted and created to be showcased here are all my own.

This is real life, everyone has it, even if they don't show it!

Directed Drawings in Kinderpond

A million years ago, I bought this book from Scholastic

I copied every page in this book:

I cut off the bottom page and I glued the actual step by step part onto red/yellow/or green construction paper and laminated them.

During morning work, I would pick a card and we would draw them together.  It is a surprise what I draw.  So they try to guess.  One summer while teaching 3/4/5 ELL (English Language Learners) I would draw a circle and a girl would yell out "rock"  This happens daily, after a while, we just waited until she yelled it out ;)

I also have used Fine Motor from K-Crew too.  They use a whole file folder. We still use those too lol

Now  added to the collection with these:

We needed a filler in 5th grade.  They loved them!

Learning Calendar Board

What started here for our calendar board and it has changed from this:

Our calendar has changed...
Our numbers have changed...
Our colors have changed...
Our shapes have changed...

 We have added theme or alphabet charts under the feelings.

To this:

That blue square is to find and locate the letter we are working on.  Now we have environmental print alphabet in there.

We are stepping up our school game and adding more to our board to keep it fresh.  Our new "year" begins in September.

Grab the letters here

Grab the numbers here

Grab the shapes here

Grab the colors here

There is still more to come!

I still have plans to add all about the letter and all about the number.
