Number Fun!

Matching amounts with "tally" pins - Two concepts in one. Great for early counting and amount comprehension, as well as, learning number words.

Beginning, Middle and Ending Sounds

This is a great center idea and can be made easily on any computer and laminated. You can buy 100 clothespins from the $1 store. Make and use cards depending on what letter sounds the children are working on and where - beginning, middle, end. Enjoy!

Handprint Idea

This is such an awesome idea... Handprint ABC chart for your classroom. You can do just about anything for the letters out of the handprints and make it your own. You can also use the handprints from this chart to do other craft and academic ideas. This one comes from eisforexplore blog. Enjoy!

These look simple enough to make. They would be great for a reading area, literacy center or just about any "special", fun place in the classroom.

Footprints and Handprints

These are so cute! I love any new ideas that I haven't done before with handprints and footprints. Feel free to share any that you've done.

Fun Crafts

I was trolling Pinterest today and found these awesome craft ideas using clothespins. My students made something similar when we created our Kiddie Garden with the dragonflies. Enjoy!

100 Years Old!

My students and I use to dress up like we were 100 years old. We also drew what we would look like at 100. I wish I had know about this during that time. Too cute!

Race to 100

This is from Mrs. Miner's Kindergarten Monkey's blog. Can be used for 100 day or math exercise anytime after that.
