Classroom Management

This is so awesome! I found it on Pinterest of course! It is a great visual for K-1. The kids would want to make sure his "hair" doesn't get messed up! Enjoy!

Life Cycles

Every year we did a unit on the life cycle of Monarch butterflies. We read books on life cycles and how the Monarchs migrated like birds every year. I ordered the catepillars and we had a butterfly house. We released them after about 2 weeks. I ordered them around Easter so that it would be warm enough to release them in May. This is a great sequencing and hands-on learning activity to go along with the unit. Enjoy!

Center Activities

Magnetic craft sticks for counting or sequencing color patterns.

Paint strips with clothespins. Great for matching.

Sequencing cards - just cut, laminate and add velcro.

Sight Word Sundaes

Armed with the bowl and scoop cutouts, invite your kinders to “build” the selected sight words by matching the mixed up letter scoops to the words on the bowls. Copy the them onto different ice cream-colored contruction paper. Enjoy! Click here to download a copy of the template from Literacy Center Activities.

Great for early writing K-2. Head over to to grab a copy
