And for my followers that write to me and ask about my letter/word order, here is what I have coming up:
Cc, like
Pp, play
Hh, have
(short week- review)
Vv, you
Gg, are
Uu, here

. . .and that brings us to winter break!

ALL of the letter and word resources are found in this pack. Each week I just click and print! No scrolling- I'm telling you, this has changed me as a teacher! 









In math I've been giving our benchmark assessments like crazy. So, I've needed fun centers to keep the kids busy. I LOVE THIS PACK!





I leave you with another adorable picture.Our color of the week is obvs brown. My little guy said that the brown things he drew were, "Brown bears sliding in brown mud."

I'm in love!

In kindergarten we learn a sight word a week and a color word each week. Because of this, our assessments change frequently and I needed something to fit my needs.

So I made this.

Here are tips, tricks, etc. on how to use this product efficiently. 

This morning, I was making my sight word reading assessment (although, this can easily be a spelling assessment) for tomorrow and the next three weeks (at the end of those three weeks, I'll send the form home for parents to review and sign with child *also included in the pack) and thought that I'd share with you, too!

Brilliant Ideas. . . from my coworker

It is definitely October. I love October more than September. Here is why. . . 

My kids are actually writing in their October Journals! I love how hard they are trying!



Our letter and word of the week continues with Bb and "go."
'Love differentiating the below sheet. The lower group works on the beginning sound; my highest group works on sound spelling each word.









And check out the cutest video from today! LOVE my kids!



All of the above are from this pack. I just click and print each week! Seriously, I just printed the next three weeks during the last 10 minutes of my prep today! Love it!


Math has been fun centers, but we did do this worksheet. . . and it's free!
I can't finish this post without talking about the love of my life next door. I never want to teach without her on my team again. Ever. 
Look at these cute pumpkins her kids made! First they worked on mixing red and yellow.
#obsessed

Then today, I needed a purple activity. She said that she just threw this together! What?! 
Brilliant.
So, the kids mix red and blue in their palette to paint the circles.
Once they dry, the kids cut out the circles in math and glue them in rows to make grapes and write those cute words that go with our purple song.
Yes!

Genius.

Love my job and the people that I work with!
