What's Your Favorite Back to School Activity!?

Totally excited about joining Jodi!!

I could tell you how I love to send the students on a gingerbread man hunt throughout the school so that they can learn the different areas of the school and the teachers.  I could also tell you how I stamp the inside of their hand with a heart at the end of the day to remind them of the kissing hand, but I think you all know those activities.


So....
I've chose my Sight Word Packets! Although it may not be a 'get to know you' mushy gushy activity, it's a great one to start on day one!

Associated Products: 
Last year when I taught K, I started with pre primer and made it to the end of the year in third grade sight words. The students showed large improvements in their reading also! I've copied the words back to back for homework/bellwork each day, but this year I think I'm going to bind the books so that they have a 'dictionary' of words. That way they are also learning the skill of alphabetized words :)
As you can see there are quite a few standards that they work on for each sheet. This is why I think these activities are great to start the first day of school. The parents and I love to tract their progression in these activities through the year!

My Hard Work from 30,000 Feet!

Hello everyone!! I'm so excited to share what I've been working on! I have a few sneak peeks for you and something fun at the end :) so make sure to stay hehe

I've been working on a new EDITABLE classroom decor pack! I'm also looking into using the same style, but changing the papers so give me a few color schemes/backgrounds that you would be interested in purchasing.

 

The kit includes:
welcome banner
welcome pennant
table numbers
supply labels
environmental print
calendar
word wall
number posters
and the best part ever??? 
EVERYTHING is editable!!! 
I've attached a separate power point file that is completely editable! So you can add anything you need to!




For a short time I will be offering this product for 1/2 off!

Now for the fun! I am offering one free, but you'll have to work for it :)

This is how it will work... All you need to do is tell your friends and followers to head this way and comment under this post that you sent them (if they're not a follower I'd love to have them)! Make sure that you tell them to leave a comment of some sort with your name or I won't be able to tally it up!! So don't forget to blog, FB, Pinterest, and twitter your hearts out to bring your friends together to win you a great prize!

Ready, Set, GO! 
*race ends tomorrow morning (when I wake up)* 

Good Luck :)
