Introducing “Wipe It!”

White board markers…  we have a love hate relationship.  I love their ease but man, when they come home on my sons khaki uniform pants I just cringe.  I have yet to find anything wonderful to remove the marker.  Grr!  Regardless of my love hate relationship with them my students love using them!!

Wipe It cover

Every week when we are working on letter formation we use wipe off sheets to practice the letters.  Simply laminate the sheets or easier then that, put them in a sheet protector. {That’s what this teacher does}

wipe it cover 2

The top section is to learn letter formation based on the numerical directions and to practice that.  The middle section is to trace, once again using the correct order of steps.  The bottom section is to try it on their own and lastly they get to “WIPE IT!”.  Just for fun we use really big (like 3 inch) pom pom balls as their erasers.  The kids think that’s pretty fun.

You can purchase the entire set – 26 upper case and 26 lower case “Wipe It!” pages at my shop or just click HERE.

Good luck with letter formation with your Pre-K and Kindergarten kiddos.

Introducing “Write It!”

I am so excited that part of my dream is beginning to come true.  I am beginning write my own curriculum!!  I know,  AHHHHH!!!  Totally scary and fun at the same time!

Write It Intro cover

All of this excitement has stemmed from the multiple A-Z curricula I piece together as I teach one letter a week.  (Curricula is a weird plural version of curriculum, believe me, I looked it up.)  I’m working on creating my own A-Z printables and this is the first set I’m sharing with you.Write It Sample Pic

My students complete this page as one of their letter learning activities.  We teach letter formation over a few days in creative ways and this page is the culmination of what they’ve learned.  The top portion is to “rainbow write” both the capital and lower case letters with crayon.  The middle portion is to practice writing each letter with a pencil and the bottom rectangle is intended for the student to draw something beginning with the letter.

This 26 page custom made set is available HERE in my store for just $1.99.

Keep an eye out for MORE A-Z sets in the next few weeks/months!  Happy learning!

Valentine Journal Writing

I love hearing from kids about what 3 and 4 year olds love.  The silly answers like, “my doggy”, “chocolate” or “playing at the park” make my heart smile.  I use these simple journal printables to take a PEEK into their little brains and see what they are thinking.  I made two versions depending on the writing skills of those that you work with.vday journal blank small

Outer Space Unit

Happy Friday!  I know I’ve been sporadic in posting lately but the busyness of life is trying to swallow me whole and I’m doing my best to fight it.  🙂

This past week our preschool class began a unit on outer space.  To begin this fun unit I used this fabulous preschool pack from 1+1+1=1.  Check it out!  Cute vocabulary cards, shadow matching etc.

Next week I’ll be sharing what I added to it just for fun!  Please bear with me the next 2 weeks as I may be sporadic, but I’ve got lots of preschool packs and crafts up my sleeve to post about this summer.  I can’t wait.  Have a great day!

 

Mother’s Day Interview

Happy Monday!  The weeks are flying by, holy cow it’s almost summer break.  Yikes!  Sunday is Mother’s Day and in order to make something for the Moms of the kiddos in our class we have to work on it a little bit each day.

This year we’re making a card for Mother’s Day with a simple interview.  I always love hearing the kids silly answers to these questions.  I ask the kids to draw their best picture of their Mom or Grandma in the top section and then I interview them and write their answers on the bottom section.  I made a color version and a black and white version as well as a Grandma version depending on the child’s home situation.

Tomorrow I’ll share our Mother’s Day gifts that we’re making for our Moms.  Happy Mother’s Day (almost).

May Day Surprise

Did you remember that tomorrow is May Day?  It’s not a common thing to celebrate, but it is a traditional celebration of Spring.  Just for fun we are adding some May Day flowers to our neighbor’s front porches.

Aren’t they cute?

A little Spring pop of color on their front door should bring a smile to their faces.

I know I’d love to find something like that on my front door tomorrow!  Here are the free printable tags.

Download the tag in a PDF with 4 to a sheet. Have fun with this printable and remember to follow along for great ideas!

Farm Pop-up Book Printables

Our Pre-K year is quickly coming to a close.  That means these sweet little ones need to be completely ready for Kindergarten. 

To help them prepare we have begun guided writing.  Don’t know what that is?  Well, it’s exactly as it sounds.  You guide the children through the process of writing letter by letter, direction by direction {where to start on the lines, where to stop, how to leave finger spaces etc.}  It’s a slow process, but a great method to begin to really teach penmanship.

We are making Farm Pop-up books!  Over the next 3 weeks we’ll complete this 4 page book using guided writing.  I love the way the cow pops off the page.

The kiddos add the background to the picture before gluing on the cow.

If you’d like to download the farm pop-up book animals you can download them here.

I have made some super simple paper you can use if you’d like to make one too.  I created 4 varieties of paper depending on where your child is at in the writing process.
