This three day weekend has been so nice… and it’s only day 2! I have been able to finish A LOT! I spent about 7 hours in my classroom yesterday, but got a lot done! Today I have been busy finishing up some projects that had been begging for my attention!
First up- I compiled all of my Kindergarten Quarterly assessments into one packet… it’s a freebie click the picture below to grab it!
We have been working a lot with our names! I had mentioned before in a comment that I have the student names on their tables with permanent marker. For those that still struggle forming the letters I have them first trace the letter, then put it on paper. This has helped a lot! We have also worked with our names using their own Name Mats!
I have found these name mats to be extremely effective with my kiddos! Here’s how I use them; trace the name with a dry erase marker, make playdoh snakes for the letters, trace the letters with their magic pen (finger), place mats into your writing center for all students to practice writing their friends names. At the end of the year send them home with students! The ideas are endless!
How do you get your mats? First, pick a design from the 4 choices. Email me a design choice and a class list of names. You will receive 1 mat per student! The customized name mats sell for $5.

You know me…always thinking the Common Core way.. Tally Marks are a great way for students to show their answers. With the Common Core we are encouraging students to show their answers in multiple ways: numeral, number word, picture, number line, number sentence & tally marks!! I decided to compile some of the ways I introduced tally marks to my students last year. Some of the best ideas come from using Popsicle sticks! I didn’t place that in this packet… because you are most likely already using that idea! This mini unit sells for $3.50 click below to view on Tpt!
Are you a fan of my number practice sheets? I have part 1, part 2, and now part 3! Part introduces great than/less than, tally marks, and previous/next numbers! The packet covers numbers 1-20. I will leave links for all three! The packets sell for $3 each in my Tpt store!
