Some Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Activities

One of these activities is for now and the other is for later in the year.  

This creation was inspired by my class from last school year.  After we completed our study of the alphabet, we needed to move on to decoding.  Still, my class continued to beg to revisit Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.  I like use my student's input in lessons and learning, but again, we needed to move on. So over the summer, I  began to make this so in the future students could have the best of both worlds.

I made this video to go with this as well.
I made it using the Knowmia App. 

I hope you found something useful today.

Mm is for Monster

The first week of kindergarten is done!  It was an exhausting first day, but by day two there was an extremely significant improvement!! Students remembered the routines that were shared from the first day.  Most remembered what to do when they heard the verbal commands.
The first letter that I like to teach is the letter Mm.  I like to use monsters to reinforce the concept. I enjoy this big book for shared reading.
Today we had a little fun with watercolors for our "Mm is for monster" activity.  These pictures were printed on card stock.
Here are the Mm is for monster pictures if you would like to try this with your class.
Don't forget about the big TPT sale!

I was really excited that I was able to welcome my students without breaking the bank! All I needed was construction paper and some cute pencils. 
This year we are using more activity based homework instead of worksheets.  We are asking parents to work with their children on specific skills. This is our shapes study page. Click on the image  if you would like a copy.
