Hey there and happy Wednesday! I know a lot of you are back at it so I hope this email finds you in the best of spirits (or the best they can be ha!) Today I am popping in to share with you my latest edition in the “Taking Back Weekends” bundles. I also have a giveaway opportunity at the end so be sure to read through! I previously had the Taking Back Weekends bundles for K-2nd. I got a lot of requests from preschool teachers wanting in on the goodies, too! However, I knew the preschool version would need an overhaul so that it could be more hands-on and fewer “paper tasks”. I took that as a mission and ran with it. I think I succeeded my own expectations with this new edition!
The preschool Taking Back Weekends has been designed with pre-k kiddos in mind. However, I also wanted to off lots of differentiation so that the packets could be used in KINDERGARTEN, too!
Below I will break down the packets and share with you the special 75% OFF pricing the bundle is currently at!
One of the most beloved parts of the Preschool Taking Back Weekends is the return of our friend, Pip the Pup! Pip the Pup is part of my Preschool Back to Survival packet and found in a few freebies too! So, it was a must that Pip make an appearance in the Taking Back Weekends and boy does she! Pip the Pup has 36 custom books in the Taking Back Weekends bundle! There are four custom Pip the Pup books in each month’s packet. Pip the Pup is a friend to the kiddos and helps them when they are introduced to new concepts! So let’s chat the overview of what is included in the Preschool Taking Back Weekends bundle!
What is included in the Taking Back Weekends ?
- 18 poems (2 themes covered, large poem, poem retell pieces per month)
- 500+ question of the day cards (2 themes covered 50-75 cards per month)
- 300 writing cards (2 themes covered, capital and lowercase versions included)
- 36 writing center posters (2 themes covered – 4 posters per month)
- 18 “Write” banners (2 themes covered – 2 posters per month)
- Writing center recording sheets (2 themes covered)
- 18 school supplies Pip the Pup custom books (2 topics covered – 2 per month)
- 18 thematic/content based Pip the Pup custom books (2 topics covered – 2 per month)
- 9 INSTANT substitute lesson plan and supporting material (1 per month)
- 45 math centers (offered in 2 themes with a total of 10 centers- 5 per month)
- 45 literacy centers (offered in 2 themes with a total of 10 centers – 5 per month)
Let’s chat poetry first! Each packet has two included poems! You get the larger poem and then poem retell cards! There are two themes covered in the poems so you can use them throughout the month as you see fit!
The bundle also includes SO MANY question of the day cards! There will be more than enough cards for you to pick through. You will be able to find the perfect question to match your theme or your students’ current interests!
One of my FAVORITE parts of the Preschool Taking Back Weekends Bundle is the optional writing center. I say “optional” because you don’t have to utilize the material in a writing center format. You can also use the material separate of a writing center if you don’t current have a spot for a full writing center. The bundle comes with 2 “write” banners, word cards, word posters, and recording sheets!
I mentioned our Pip the Pup! She provides the kiddos with two school supply readers in each packet! This month she teaches the kids about how to correctly play with dough and introduces them to a variety of fine motor tools! Each month there will be two new school supplies that Pip the Pup teaches the students! The students can also get “certified” in each school supply using the included certificates!
Pip the Pup also provides you with two thematic read alouds each month! For this packet, Pip introduces the students to John Chapman and the places found within their school! The books are also paired with an activity and craft/crown!
The Preschool Taking Back Weekends bundle also comes with 9 INSTANT Sub plans (1 per month). The INSTANT sub plans have a detailed lesson plan sheet and all of the needed material for circle time, read aloud, letter work, centers, and math! These lesson plans are perfect for your emergency sub tubs! For the September packet, the sub plans utilize the Brown Bear, Brown Bear book.
Each Preschool Taking Back Weekends packet comes with 5 literacy centers. However, there is a catch! The 5 centers are offered in 2 different themes so you’re actually getting 10 centers per packet. Awesome right? Well, it actually gets better because each center comes with an “I can” card, center label, AND recording sheets!
The packets contain the same for math centers! Each packet has the 5 centers offered in two themes for a total of 10 math centers per packet! The math centers also contain “I can” cards, labels, and recording sheets!
Just a reminder that everything you saw here is for just ONE PACKET and you get NINE PACKETS in the bundle…. yes honestly it’s like buying ONE month and getting EIGHT free because each packet is so stuffed with awesomeness! If you’re not sure ALL of the parts work for you but you like some of it for you kiddos I’ll break down the cost across the entire bundle!
