Kindergarten Rocks Colorful Cat Shirt

Subbing this year brought me all around…  but I think my favorite place to be was in Kindergarten with four great Kindergarten teachers.  I learned lots from being in some of their classrooms and felt very much at home!  Now I am preparing to switch gears and finish out the year in third grade…  Pete the Cat isn’t as popular in third grade as it is in Kindergarten.  So, shaking out some Pete the Cat goodies before I head to third grade.  I made these shirts below to share with my favorite Kindergarten Teachers for them to wear at their Kindergarten Orientation Day.  If...

Same and Different Math Dice Game

  I was in a few of my favorite Kindergarten classrooms this week and we worked on same and different.  As I was teaching an introductory lesson I thought up this little game and thought it may be fun for a review of same or different or could be used for remedial work.   You could print it and laminate it and have it for years to come! Goes along great with Envisions unit 16. 2—3 players Print 1 card per player. Provide six markers per player. Provide one dice per set or trio of players.

Whole Brain Teaching While Subbing - Scoreboard

As most of you know, I am subbing in k-4 classrooms this year.  I have to say, it really isn’t so bad.  The worst thing about subbing is wishing I was in my own classroom again…  That part is depressing, but the rest is pretty fun and happy.  Since I had years in my own classroom, I think subbing is somewhat easier than when I went into subbing when I first started teaching back in 1997.  I also think being a parent of younger children also makes you have a different perspective on the teaching job (but that is a whole post by itself). I have many tips and tricks that have been...

Pittsburgh Apron

My daughter’s grade level studies the city of Pittsburgh.  One of the ways they celebrate their learning is by having a Pittsburgh Day put on by the parents and the teachers.  The eight teachers set-up four stations that the eight classes rotate through.  It’s a great idea!  Lots of artwork displayed around the school.
