I just created a May Math Journal Prompt Pack for Kindergarten. My kids love working in their math journals! I also love to see where their thinking can go- I have to get in some of that higher order thinking as much as possible!!! I try to sneak it in so they think it's fun and don't notice they are learning :). Now that testing is over (not that I am complaining--- because I do not have TCAP, but still...) I wanted to review a few things with my kiddos before the year is up, and they move on to
bother love another teacher. You can find it at TpT for $2.50. I used clip art from KPM Doodles. I just love all her stuff!! I will openly admit I have an addiction to shopping at her etsy store... But anyway.. I'm off to play with the pooch. Click on the picture to check it out!
P.S.- The first person to comment can have it for FREE! Just leave me some love & your email address :)

I'm linking up with Laura over at Kinder Craziness for What I'm pinning Wednesday!
I pinned from Mrs. Ayala's Kinder Fun:
I love that these are expectations and not rules! I also love that they each say, "We will..." So great! I want to print this and turn it into a poster for next year!
I pinned from Mrs. Kelly's Kindergarten:
This would be great to do during the first few weeks of school as an easy literacy center.
I pinned from Happiness Is...:
Except of course it will say Kindergarten.. instead of 1st grade for me!
And although I do not have children of my own yet (someday...) I definitly want to do this one day!
You make a crate for each child adding file folders that say Pre-K-12th grade. So each year when they bring home something you want to keep you will not forget where you put it! Great idea!!!
Welp- those are my favs!! Happy Hump Day! Don't forget to link up with Laura to join in the pinterest fun!

This week is ALL about Dinos! I just love teaching about Dinosaurs!! You grab the attention of both the boys and the girls! They are also using great vocab words like extinct- I love to hear it!
Yesterday, we did a little sentence building with Dinos & color words.
Here are a few pics:
I printed off the words, had my EA chop them, and we put them back in order!
We also had a recording sheet so we stayed on task.

I'm linking up, with Laura over at Kinder Kraziness, for What I'm pinning Wednesday!
Here are a few of my favs I pinned recently:
I thought this looked like so much fun and it is also super cheap at the same time! The tape represents sound boxes on the floor. I teach Kindergarten and movement is soooo important for
me them. You can let your little ones jump as they sound out those words! What a fun activity!!
Next, are these adorable little jellyfish!! We are doing our ocean unit this week; I might just have to add these little cuties!
I don't know about you all.. but I have already started to think about next year! I know, I need to just get through these next 2 months... but I can't help it! I always have a few kids who finish early.. These would be great to keep a few books, journals, etc.. in to give my kids something to do when they are done. It would help with the
constant questions, "Can I color on the back?", "What do I do now?", & "Mrs. Baxter, I'm done!".
Speaking of next year.. I just love anchor charts! Don't you?!? I definitly want to create this one and read those David books! I will probably still do my usual color faces, The Crayon Box that Talked, etc... But I definitly want to add this to the list.
Then, we can make these:
