May Math Journal Prompts

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 :)

What I'm pinning Wednesday!

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!

Pinned Image
This would be great to do during the first few weeks of school as an easy literacy center.

I pinned from Happiness Is...:
Pinned Image
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!
Pinned Image
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!

Dino Sentence Building!

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.

What I'm pinning Wednesday!

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:

Pinned Image
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!!

Pinned Image

Next, are these adorable little jellyfish!! We are doing our ocean unit this week; I might just have to add these little cuties!

Pinned Image
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!". 

Pinned Image

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:

Happy Pinning!
