Busy, busy, busy! with a FREEBIE

Sooo it has been a busy week to say the least! We only had a four day week, but it seemed like it was six days long. How does that work? The end of the year is creeping up and I absolutely cannot believe it! We started learning the song we will sing at Kindergarten Graduation. It made me want to cry! I am going to be a mess the last day of school. I'll miss my sweet kinders.


Mother's Day

For Mother's Day, we created the cupcake coupon book that was in the TpT newsletter. I still remember giving things like that to my mom and how much she loved them. The kids thought it was the greatest thing ever and can't wait to help their mommies with some extra chores. (You're welcome Moms, haha!) I think they turned out pretty cute!

(This came from Amanda Gregory's TpT store. You can grab it for free here.)


Tooth Extraction Subtraction

We have been working on subtraction and we did this super cute activity from Heidi Songs blog.
Here's how it works: The kids each get a page that shows a kid with ten teeth (put the sheet inside a page protector). They roll the dice to see how many teeth to knock out take away. They black out those teeth and count how many are left. Then, they write down the subtraction problem they have created. 

My kids had a blast with this and were SO ENGAGED. Dice + dry erase markers = FUN in kindergarten.
You can get the pictures of the kids from Heidi's blog. Here is a free recording sheet I made to go with it. Just click here to download.

Summer Centers

I got to bust out the Sizzlin' Summer Centers this week. Woohoo! We will be using centers from this pack until the end of the year.

Teacher Appreciation Sale

I was so excited for the TpT Teacher Appreciation Sale that I filled up my cart the day it was announced. I can never pass up a good sale. Here is some of the stuff I bought:

You can see that I kind of went clip art crazy. Oops.

I had orientation for grad school this week. My summer break won't be much of a break, but I am excited and nervous to go to school again. Completing two classes in one month may kill me!
