Quick End of the Day Activity

I have a fun and fairly easy activity for the end of each day. I call it This is My Week because at the end of the week students can bring it home to share with their families. It is a nice summary of the week. I don't check for spelling or errors so it also a good unofficial assessment for me and parents to see what their child is doing  on their own. If you'd like to try it, click here or on the image below to grab it.



Alphabet Activity Books

These alphabet activity books are a fun way to consolidate letter knowledge with your little ones.

Free Left and Right Signs

I love visual aides in my classroom and I find these Left and Right signs to be very helpful for my students. I place them at the front of the room and when I ask students anything to do with left or right directions they can easily see them. I no longer have students asking which way is left or right!!!

Parent Meetings and Conferences Documentation

Parent meetings and conferences are a guaranteed part of every teacher's school year. Prepare for these important interactions with this parent conference documentation form.


The form includes entries for student name; date; a select number of standardized assessment scores; ideas for discussion; checklists for strengths, concerns, and ideas for parent/students; free space for additional notes; and parent signature. One idea is to prepare one for each student prior to parent-teacher conferences to make efficient use of time.

Free Hundreds Chart Math Center

Free hundreds chart center - glue stick free - from Raki's Rad Resources.

Using a hundreds chart can help students to understand number relationships. When I taught first grade, my students used this Gluestick Free Hundreds Chart Center every single week. By the end of the year, they had a great grasp on number relationships. Download this page completely free from my blog - Raki's Rad Resources.


Insta-Writer's Workshop Lesson!

This is one of my favorite ways to kick off Writer's Workshop.




I usually spend two days on this simple lesson. On day one, we fill up the LOVE side with all of our favorite people, places, things, and memories. On day two, we add the DETEST side and fill it up with the things that make us scared, sad, worried, and angry. 

I encourage the kids to draw an icon or small picture for each item to make the idea "stick." When we come back to these maps throughout the year for writing ideas, they have a huge vault of possibilities!

I'm linking you straight to the freebie on TpT. Just click on either of the photos in this post. Or, pin the image below and come back to it when you need it! 




Happy Writing!


Pete the Cat's "It's All Good!" Writing Prompt Poster Pack


Even before Pete the Cat made the saying "It's All Good!" popular, others felt the same way, like Glennon Melton, so I used her quote to make a cat-themed poster.

There's one in black and white for kiddos to color, as well as a colorful one for you to introduce the writing prompt with, then hang in the center of your display of students' work.

Using the worksheet, children write whether they agree or disagree with the quote and why.

Use the poster for discussion with PK children, who can also color their own.

Here's hoping that a furry little friend named Pete the Cat will help get your kiddos excited to write.

Click on the link to zip on over to my blog where the "It's All Good!" writing prompt poster pack, is today's featured FREEBIE.

Soccer Themed Math Games

It never fails that I have students who finish their work way before the majority of my class. I always want something for my early finishers to do so I have math games/activities as one of their choices. Because I don't want them to get bored of doing the same ones over and over I have a bunch of ones I rotate through.
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Soccer-Math-Centers-Multiplication-and-Subtraction-2389060
Here is a soccer themed product that includes games focused on multiplication and subtraction with regrouping. There is great flexibility in this because students can complete the activities alone or as a game with a partner!!! 
Answer keys are also provided so students can check their own work.
