Gingerbread in Kinderpond

Here are some of the units we will use this month in Kinderpond:

Gingerbread non-standard measuring

Gingerbread Shake Up
I usually use this in small groups.
You glue the label on an egg carton.
I put labels on the inside of things we need to work on.

Ex. in one group, we may be still working on letter identification, I would use garage sale dots with letters on them. Add a gingerbread eraser or pom pom.
Close the egg carton.
Open and read the spot where the counter landed.
Repeat as necessary.

Another group, we are reviewing sight words.  I write a sight word on a label.
Repeat same procedure.

You can use these for almost anything. The kids love them.
Use for math or reviewing any topic.
You could do a bigger egg carton too for a whole class activity for a quick filler.

Song book

 Interactive classbook
Everyone makes their own page for our class library.

Gumdrop Spinner

I use this for my guided reading groups.
No I don't print these in color for them.  

Counting Gumdrops
Easy counting shared reading book.

 reviewing colors :)

Things have been so crazy!

Things have been so crazy, I hope this post makes up for it a bit!  

If you follow me on Instagram or Kinderpond Jr. you saw all these bags!!!

Here is almost everything lol

Yes we go from Peppa Pig to Transformers lol
They are grab bags and then the chalk stencils.
The Planes thing is a scissors.

Here are the Christmas stuff-
I will have to go back though lol

Bows, window clings
stampers (stay tuned for a recording sheet)

These are scenes.  I plan to laminate to reuse.

These are sticker scenes-
I laminate these things too lol

We are loving PJ Masks too :)

Regular stuff:
clothes pins
2018 calendar
Sheet protectors
Hair brush
Plastic flags (pretty sturdy)
Square Velcro
Clear packing tape
Emoji tape
sewing kit
hair ties
oh and a tray :)

I blame The Purple Alphabet for these:
After she posts a video, I take screen shots and use those when I go shopping lol

This tool box- it now contains *some* of our many many band-aids
Shells- because I no longer live near the ocean :(

A clipboard
Yellow Shreds for cheese in dramatic play cheese shaker
restaurant order pad
the black thing is a chalkboard because I can't find a mini clipboard

These are supposed to be like LEGOS.
I will let you know :)

These are in the art section.

These are FABULOUS!!!!!!
You know that expensive high lighting tape from the teacher store?

Well this is the same thing!!! but better, because it's only a $1
The light switch is also for guided reading.
Turn it on when you are working, so other students will *not* interrupt.

These are pretty nice trucks.  Sturdy plastic about the size of my hand.

I always have questions about where to find things for the light table.
I couldn't find them anywhere at my Dollar Tree.

I found this end cap, so it's won't be there always.

I was looking by the wraps and bags every time.
I needed to look by the partyware-
the tablecloths, forks, spoons, knives instead!

I grabbed a 3 part container there, you know for a $1... 
and it was bigger then the one at WalMart for more lol

Look closely in that 3 part container-
there are small square containers maybe 12?
and small stackable dishes

I got two sorting trays (red and clear)
and then an egg dish- I am thinking mixing colors?

Report covers because I can't find the ones everyone else is finding!

This was bought at WalMart,
before I found the real thing at Dollar Tree.

I think things have finally calmed down a bit and will be blogging more.

I post weekly over at Kinderpond Jr. Tot School 
with lesson plans and our week in review.
