Kindergarten back to school freebies in

It’s back to school time (well maybe?) Hi there teacher bestie! Today I am popping in to compile all of my recent back to school professional development into one easy to access spot!

If you missed out on these LIVE professional development sessions then this post will be very exciting for you! Below is 5 hours of FREE professional development sessions! I presented on literacy centers, phonemic awareness, read alouds, guided reading, writing, number sense, whole-group math, small-group math, and the first week of school!

The Presentations

The LIVE videos were presented in my Facebook group! If you are on Facebook and not yet part of our community there you can submit to join us at www.TeachwithTaraWest.com

Below you will be able to replay each video AND download my entire presentations. The presentations have embedded videos of ME teaching the ideas, detailed notes/sample lesson plans, SEVERAL FREEBIES, and each presentation also has an attached professional development certificate.

I’ll link each video and presentation below! Please always feel free to reach out to me with any questions about implementing these ideas into your classroom this upcoming school year!

Much Love,
Tara

  4. I have made my Literacy Center slides and they are ready to go. But I was wondering if you knew how to add a timer into Power Point? I really need it all on one screen. I have googled it, but just haven’t found what I am looking for. Thanks, Tara!
