Space, Ready for Seuss and a Couple of Freebies to Snag

Last week was a 4 day week. What is it about short weeks feeling like they last FOREVER?! Anyways, last week we did our space unit. Here are a few pictures:
We made a rocket and astronaut to accompany the writing.
Then we made stars using Elmer's glue that had food coloring in it and glitter. (We LOVE anything with glitter in my classroom!)
We had so much fun! Click to check out unit in my little store.

I also created a graphing freebie to use with your space unit. Just click on the picture to snag it! But please remember to leave feedback. :)

I am all ready for Seuss activites this week! I LOVE this week!! We will be wearing Lorax mustaches that my hubby drew for me (all of mine ended up looking like teeth, really creepy teeth.).

Here are some activities from my Silly Sentence pack that will work with this week's activites:
We will start this out as a whole group activity to create sentences, then try the unscramble sentence sheets from the packet. Then it will be moved into a reading station for students to create their own sentences and write them down. They really love doing these activities!

And here is a little freebie for you! I found this on pinterest (but the link only took me to Google images so I don't exactly know where it came from). This is so darling and I can't wait to do this with my kinders. Clicking on the picture will take you to my Dr. Seuss pinterest board.

 I created a template to use (using the cute frame from Graphics From the Pond). Click on the picture to get it from google docs.
More pictures to come as the week goes on!

Tooth Fairy {with a freebie} and Exciting News

This week instead of doing Valentine's Day like any normal kindergarten classroom, we did the Tooth Fairy and dental health instead (not all of my little friends celebrate holidays). We of course still had our party yesterday, but I try to make sure all of my little friends can participate in our weekly units. But it worked out wonderfully since someone came to talk to our kinders about dental health this week.

Here is a little peek at what we did this week:

Here is our writing chart that we used to fill in our little emergent reader. This was a lot of fun!



This little guy who colored this one told me that the red was really magic dust that kept the Tooth Fairy invisible.

And a little freebie for you!

The first 2 are great for sequencing and "The Day It Rained Hearts" is absolutely precious. I love sharing that book.
