Hi there and happy almost end of the year! I’m super pumped to share with you my latest creation! A couple summers ago I created a program called KinderSurvival! This program was developed to help teachers survive that beginning of the year crazy! After teachers used KinderSurvival for a smooth start… they asked for an end of the year squeal and KinderSurvived was born!
KinderSurvived is an end-of-year program designed to assist teachers in surviving their last month of kindergarten. We know that there is so much that goes into wrapping up the end-of-year. This program was designed by a teacher for a teacher in hopes that all necessary material could be found in one document. The program consists of a week long close read, math review, phonics review, end-of-year assessments, summer learning extension, end-of-year rotation fun, custom written books, memory book, promoted to first grade awards, character awards and MORE!
