September 2019

Here are some of the things we have been up to this month!

1. ALPHABET STAMPING


I wanted a recording sheet for the kids to practice using alphabet stamps with so I quickly made these up and they were a big hit with our class! I was asked by many people to share the recording sheet so you can download it for free by clicking here or on the image below:


Some people also asked about the stamps and the stamp pad so here are the links for those:

Lowercase alphabet stamps: https://amzn.to/2NemGO2
Washable jumbo stamp pad: https://amzn.to/2O0o8Db


2. LINKING CHAIN NUMBERS


Here is a simple math centre I put out for the students to explore linking chains! This centre invites students to read the number and link that many chains under it.  It is a great centre for developing number identification, one to one correspondence and fine motor!

If you would like to grab these (and a number 8-14 strip) you can click here or click on the image below to download them for free!


3. FIND ALL THE LETTERS!


I've made and posted a similar sensory bin to this before, but I updated the recording sheet so I thought I'd post again.  Students are invited to pick up a letter, find it on the recording sheet and dab it with a bingo daubber.  The repeat until they find all 26 letters! The kids loved this one!

The base is black beans and I added wooden letters (Dollarama), magnifying glasses, pencils, an eraser, some bingo daubbers and a recording sheet.

4. CAN YOU MAKE A LETTER WITH PLAY DOUGH?


Here is a simple literacy based play dough provocation we set out this week! Our kids LOVE play dough this year so they loved this one too! 

4. MEET THE TEACHER SCAVENGER HUNT


We had our Meet the Teacher on September 19 (my birthday! lol). I always put this scavenger hunt out.  I love it because it encourages the students to take the lead and show the parents around our classroom and it gives them something to do while they wait to talk to us! 

A lot of you asked for an editable version so it's now ready in my TPT store!  You can click here or on the image below to grab it if you are interested!


5. THANKS A LATTE FOR YOUR DONATION!


We have a reading table, a writing table, a math table and a communication table (reminder to sign up for Remind and a link to the classroom blog) and a donation table set up for Meet the Teacher!  This year we typed up what we wanted on these little coffee cups and put the out with this sign. We already got a box of Kleenex yesterday and many parents took a coffee cup to donate! We are thankful for our generous parents!

6. SCISSORS PRACTICE


My kiddos love using scissors this year but they do need more practice.. so I thought I'd set up this simple cutting provocation for them to explore cutting different lines! They loved this!  Our scissors experts challenged themselves with the spiral lines and my beginners were encouraged to start with the red strips.

That's it for now! I will add to this post until the end of the month!
