Summer Math Center FREEBIE

We have 8 days left this school year! Where did the time go?!? We are sticking to our routine to prevent any behavior problems. So far, so good. Wait, its only Monday....
Anyway to keep my kiddos engaged and on task I made a few new math centers. This center was such a HIT today! They loved the seashells and "playing" with dice is one of their favorite things to do! I hope that you are able to use this in your classroom!

Flip Flop Blog Hop




I am so excited to be a part of this Blog Hop! This is my first time doing a product exchange blog post/hop.
I was paired with Kinder Doodles



(check out her awesome blog). She sent me her Transportation themed literacy unit. I loved how it was differentiated. I was able to use parts of it with all of my students.

My students enjoyed all of the activities included in the pack. I liked that I was able to check for understanding with all students. The worksheets included in the pack are great, they are easy to read and reviewed many of the skills that we have been working on. The clip art is so cute! The hands on centers are wonderful. I saved ink by printing on colored card stock. My kiddos had a blast and they were learning and reviewing!

Beginning and ending sounds.


Sight word practice.

April SLANT Box Exchange

 
 
 
I love SLANT box exchanges!
If you don't know what it is check out Lessons With Coffee blog.
The theme for the April box was "Your Favorite Book". All of the components of the box had to go along with the book.
 
I was matched up with Janea from Seeds of Knowledge. I loved being matched with someone who teaches the same grade as me!
 
I sent Janea one of my favorite books. Rex Camp. In her box I included goodies for smores, a lantern, trail mix and other "camping" goodies.

My box came from Dordina, her personal blog has so many neat ideas.
 
Dordina sent me "The Fault in Our Stars" I have been contemplating this book for weeks!! I am so excited to read it by the pool this summer. Its far too crazy in kindergarten right now to get any personal reading done!
 
In my box Dordina included....
 
 
The book!!
 
Such a sweet, soft smelling lotion.

                                                                     A relaxing mask.

Pencils

Another fun lotion!

Cute note pad.

                                                                        An adorable card!


 
                                                                         Lots of stars!

Wow! Can you believe that the school year is almost over?!?! I am still in shock, this has been one of the best years so far in my teaching career. My class is amazing, they have built a little family and I am sad to see them split up.
The one thing that I LOVE about May is Teacher Appreciation Week! My schools PTO is so good to us!
How about your school? What do they do for Teacher Appreciation?
