There is so much to learn about and observe in the world outside. My kids LOVE bugs. They are an exciting part of the world. One of my favorite websites, The Teaching Channel, has a great video about preschoolers hypothesizing and learning about bugs. I love how the teacher uses the specific, scientific language with the young children. The kids are so excited to learn about the bugs in a very hands-on way. Check out the video for more ideas. Don’t forget to head over to this post to enter a HUGE spring giveaway!!
We were “Wild About Syllables”! The kids loved picking out a picture, saying in out loud, and using a bingo marker to mark the correct number of syllables.
We used bingo markers again to dab the correct spot that shows the matching rhyme. The kids loved finding the matching animal underneath the rhyming word.
These contraction cards make contractions fun! Students find the contraction that matches the two words. They then will write the correct contraction on the recording sheet.
I love this activity! Students will choose a ten frame and find the equation that matches the ten frame. Nancy matched the colors on the dots of the ten frame to the same colors on the numerical equation. It is great for visual learners.
We broke out the pocket chart for skip counting. We used a tabletop pocket chart. Kids put the numbers in order, by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.
I also used another awesome pack from Mrs. Payton’s Precious Kindergarteners. This is a pack focused on zoo animals. I love it!!
She was able to check the words and pictures against the matching words and pictures in the Write the Room activity.
Mrs. Payton also includes a printable worksheet to match the animals picture to the correct word.
There is also a recording sheet for the Write the Room activity. Students will write the animal words with the matching animal pictures and fill the words into the correct sentences.
Students complete an ABC center for medial vowel sounds, short a, and short i. Students are able to sort the sounds and then cut and paste the medial vowel sounds in the correct CVC word.
There are many other activities in this awesome pack! This is just a small glimpse of the entire packet. I know your kiddos will love it as much as mine did 🙂
