I LOVE this letter recognition resource for guided reading, one-to-on instruction and intervention! It fits into a binder and is SO versatile! It’s a must have if you teach pre-k, kindergarten, first grade, or ESL students!
Teaching adjectives and verbs with popcorn?! Sign. Me. Up. This activity is teacher and student-approved. I promise, your kiddos will love it and will be talking about it all school year long. Plus, they’ll have a great foundation for these concepts afterward!
If you teach little guys, then the start of the year is all about teaching them foundational skills in everything. Which is why I love math crafts! They’re a fun way to reinforce foundational numeracy skills, such as subitizing and making ten, along with fine motor work and following directions! #winning
And, if you want to get your kiddos pumped up about a school year full of reading, while teaching them to LOVE books, then you have to check out these activities that help celebrate reading! They will share out their thoughts on their favorite books – and work on their reading reading comprehension skills as an added bonus!
Another great must-have for teaching foundational math skills is this math binder that’s great for small group instruction, math stations, and intervention. Teachers will appreciate the simplicity of the format and students benefit from the engaging activities!
Lastly, is this resource that includes FIFTY SETS of flashcards based off of kindergarten and first grade standards. They are extremely versatile and can be added to a number of activities that you already do in your classroom – from centers to small group to guided reading – the possibilities are endless!
This is the *best* science curriculum for the start of the school year! Your students will familiarize themselves with introductory science vocabulary, concepts, and skills – including safety!
