Hey all- just wanted to share some pictures of what I've been up to these past few days!!!
I changed my station tub labels finally so they match each station label on the rotation chart! Now I don't have to run around the room looking for each activity and where the kids put it! (I was originally using these tubs to differentiate seatwork station- but that will come later!)
|New tub labels!|
Here are my centers for our first week back....
|Work work center: rhyming words|
|Big book center (FREE response page found HERE)|
|Writing center (I still need to print off the picture cards!) I'm going to have them make a list of things they need to build a snowman! (page from packet found HERE)|
|Our ABC station- stamping word family words|
These are their anchor tubs- activities to do for the early finishers!
|Color word songs and matching colors to color word activiity|
|Fine motor skills|
|Pocket Chart Station|
|Recording sheet for pocket chart center|
can be found in packet HERE (TPT)
|Where we keep their library books and check-out folders! This helps me see who has library books to return throughout the day!|
|New mailbox system!!! =)|
|After a hard morning- I opened up my planner to discover this scripture I had written for the New Year a while back!.... talk about a God moment =)|
|Finally posted the dramatic play center words I bought this summer from Growing Kinders!|
And funny story- as I was cleaning and putting all their dramatic play toys into bins, I noticed the baby dolls that have been in the room since i started 4 years ago and never realized how OLD they are! hahaha- I think it's about time to get some new ones... ;)
|My room - all ready for my kiddos!|
New week we are beginning our unit on shapes! I made this chart (inspired by the one found on Kindergarten, Kindergarten!) to fill out as we learn about each shape!
Here are pictures of our math stations this week:
|Trace each shape with stickers|
|pattern block puzzles|
|shape puzzles- i love how these have real life objects to match!|
|Kids will use playdoh to make shapes (We were going to use wiki-stix, but I'm out!)|
And I washed the chair pockets my mom made over break and put new name tags in them!
Inside their chair pocket- they keep their writing folders, math journals, poetry journals and crayon pouch!
Hope everyone is having a great start to 2013!!!!
