Mini-books anyone?

Hi everyone!    I’ve been busy working on a few things to get ready for next year and guess what everyone?  I’M GOING BACK TO KINDER!!!!!  I’m so very excited!  Here are some new things I have posted to my store if you are interested 🙂

Slide1

I was brainstorming some ideas for teaching sight words to my littles and I was thinking you know I just wanted something simple that is easy to prep!  This pack is perfect for that–all images are black and white.  Simply print, have students stamp or write the words and then cut and assemble!  Easy peasie!

The other thing I’ve been working on was updating my color word flip-books.  I also wanted to create something that was easy to prep and would be ideal as a center activity.  Eleven color books are included in this product.

Slide1

Simply print the pages, students trace the words of the colored items and color the pictures to match.  Then they simply cut on the dotted lines and assemble.

It has been a really long time since I’ve posted any new information on my blog.  I’ve been incredibly busy helping my sister prepare for her wedding that was on Valentine’s day!

So much has happened within the last month.  Lately, I’ve been working on creating some new sight word worksheets and games.  These have been added to sight word page.  In addition, now that we are in the second half of the school year, my kindergartners have started to complete weekly homework packets.  So by the end of this week I will be adding a homework page with lots of resources.

Enjoy!

Here are some links to the new sight word worksheets I posted:
