Number Puzzle Freebie

Just thought I'd share a number puzzle freebie. It may be a little too easy for Kinder, but great for Pre-K. Just cut the bus apart and let the students put it back together. Click here to download.

I Have Who Has

Just created this game that your class can play at the beginning of the year. It was created on the "I Have, Who Has" model, but it includes Back to School items. When students get pretty good at it, add a timer and see if they can beat clock. I hope you enjoy.

Scavenger Hunt

Found this idea on Pinterest (I'm hooked on it). I thought it was really cool. It was used for traveling and keeping an impatient child busy. Take pictures or draw pictures of things that you might see from a car while you're on the road and place a piece of bubble wrap over the pictures. As your child spots the item, they pop the bubble.

Well, I thought I could use this for my classroom. Instead of things that you see on the road, substitute things that are in the classroom (art supplies, word wall, sand table, etc.) and as the child spots the item in the class he/she pops the bubble. It's a good way for children to become familiar with where things are located in the class. I mean who doesn't like bubble wrap?!?

Fun idea.

Great Set of Labels

Well, I was hunting for great ideas on Pinterest (my other obsession) and came across these great labels that were totally free. Karen Cox from Prekinders made them herself and they are also listed on TpT website. The link to her website it located at the bottom. They're really nice!

Math Freebie

Just thought I'd offer a freebie for your math center.  Students can use these cards several ways or a combination of all. They can:  order the number cards using the picture representation, build the number word with magnetic letters, match the number in the space provided, and in the empty space at the top use unifix cubes to build and represent the number.  Tell me what you think.
