Back to School Things Posted

So much to do, so little time. Here is my Chester's Days in School unit for centers to use with the Kissing Hand. Also include, is a emergent reader about Chester Meeting Pete the Cat! so cute. One of my favorite things to do in the beginning of the year is to have my students believe that the classroom is magical and we all have magical abilities. I have included in this unit a Chester Magical Math Wheel where the students pick a number and you will be able to guess their number every time! My students love it. It is also a great transition activity to pull their attention back or just if you have a few minutes. There are over 13 centers. Pick and choose the ones that are best for you or choose all of them!!

I have also posted previously Speedy Race for Math. My kids LOVE speedy race for letters, so I know this will help them learn their numbers quickly. Some of the new Reading and Writing Strategies posted are:
Seuss, Western, Pirate, Hollywood and Monster. Also check out my Fire Safety unit for October. Lots of great centers to keep your little ones busy all month! I added an odd an even sign to post in your classroom. And finally, if you have to post the Common Core Standards in your classroom these will be a great addition. These use the "vigor" of the verb when stated. I think that should keep you up to date. My friend Jennifer from Kinderpond also has posted some awesome things on TPT. Check these out: School Supplies Pocket Chart, School Supplies Emergent Reader, School Supplies Student Color Book, and Student Supplies Big Book!
