Hip, Hip, Hurray for the 100th Day!!!

With many schools getting ready to celebrate the 100th day of school {if you haven't already!}, I decided to share what we did last year in my kindergarten class. I'm really into making hats and headbands for some reason {I think it's because the kids look so cute!} These come as a free printable from Making Learning Fun and can be found HERE! You just have to prepare the construction paper strips and stickers. Each child will need 10 strips, 100 stickers, the printable hat, and a sentence strip. It makes for a fun counting activity for the 100th day!
100th day 

As a reading teacher, I tied literacy in by reading some of these books!
100 Days of School - Fun 100th Day of School Books for Kids

 This year, I created this differentiated making words printable and it's a FREEBIE in my TpT and TN stores. It was even featured in the TN newsletter a few weeks ago. Click the website names below to download them!

The Magical Product Swap....Take 3!


It's baaaaaacccckkk AGAIN! The Magical Product Swap is back for a third time and I'm so glad you're here because this is not a blog event that you want to miss out on. I had the pleasure of working with Amanda from Mrs. Richardson's Class.

Amanda is a first grade teacher from Texas. She has been blogging for a few years now and recently posted about some fonts that she made, so you will definitely want to check out her blog ASAP!
I was able to review Amanda's "Winter Wonderland {7 Literacy Activities}" 
Click the picture to find this unit in her TpT store for a well worth $5.00! It's 36 pages and includes the following:
   1. Prepositional Snow Phrases (1.21A)
2. ABC Order Snow Boots (1.6E)
3. Adverb or Adjective Snowman Sort (1.20A)
4. Snowy Sentence Punctuation (1.21C)
5. Ch and Th Snowflake Word Sort (1.3A)
6. Write a Winter Poem (1.18B)
7. Listening Comprehension Foldables (1.9A)
This is what Amanda has to say about this pack: "This little pack is filled with 7 literacy activities for you to use in several ways in the classroom. The activities can be done as a whole group to help teach a new concept. You can do them in a small group format to help re-teach a concept. You can use them in workstations or centers. You can even throw them in a Daily 5 word work rotation to provide extra practice for students! All activities are aligned with TEKS and CSCOPE."
One of the things I love about this unit is that it has DJ Inkers clip art!!! I love that clip art, but I can't afford the license to use it. Anyway, each activity includes a directions page, so there will clearly be no confusion as to how you are to use each activity. This is an example here:
The more I printed and laminated these activities, the more I fell in love with them. They are ADORABLE!!! What student wouldn't love seeing these in a center? Check them all out below.

Amanda is offering the CH & TH Word Sort from her unit as a FREEBIE! Click the picture below to download it!
I hope you enjoyed reading about Amanda's activities. She blogged all about my "Football Literacy Unit" which is perfect for Super Bowl and Grey Cup time for my Canadian friends. This FREEBIE is available from my unit on her blog only, so be sure to check it out ASAP by clicking the picture below!
