What's On My Shopping List?

I am looking forward to trying out some new games and activities. I plan to do some shopping at Teachers Pay Teachers! There is a sale going on today and tomorrow. Be sure to use the code BTS12 to save even more! I am always looking for ways to use manipulatives in different ways. Here are some items that I think will be fun in kindergarten.

1. Snap cubes alphabet (There are also pre-primer and primer sight words for snap cubes!!) I am so excited about these snap cubes because we have so many of these in my classroom. This will be one of our first activities at literacy centers. I will also use the sight words one later on in the year.



2. Fun in the Kitchen I am super excited about using the fun literacy and math games at my kitchen center.


3. School Time Rap I am trying to incorporate more song books into one of my listening centers. This will be one of our first songs.


4. Label it Nursery Rhymes  First Grade Blue Skies has created a variety of Label Its. They are a fun addition to a writing center.



5. Alphabet Vacation I will be making more things from my newest unit soon . My class and I will be taking an alphabet vacation after learning about all the letters during the first 5 weeks of school.

Now, it isn't quite Monday, but I wanted to go ahead and post my Monday Made Its... I think this will be the last one for me to link up to. Tomorrow will be my first day with my new kindergartners! I am excited for a fun filled year. I will take a picture of each student with this particular frame. Here's one of our little dogs with it...


I also made special treats for my kinderkids on their first day of school- kissing hand cookies. Here they are before going into the oven. It is a tradition of mine and many other teachers to make these to go along with The Kissing Hand book.





If you are going back to school, I hope it will be a great first week! If you are on summer break, enjoy your rest! If you are already back in school, may your little ones be getting into the routines!
