I have FINALLY finished my TPT Sellers Challenge Masterpiece! I don't know why it took me so incredibly long to finish it, but it's finally done!!
I am so excited about finishing this product! I designed it to fit perfectly in the beginning weeks of the year in kindergarten. It would also work in pre-k as well as for first grade RTI groups.
This Masterpiece has consumed my life for so many days now! I have been hard at work adding Literacy and Math centers you can use during the first few months of the school year. This packet contains 12 different activities, 6 each for Literacy and Math. This is a large packet, with almost 300 pages!
I included a Table of Contents so you could get a brief description of each activity as well as which page the activity starts on. Each activity in this packet focuses on the Common Core Standards for Kindergarten.
Math skills include counting up sets and matching numerals, sorting and graphing dessert data, finding number partners of 5 and 10, Play-Dough mats to create sets of candles for a given number, and Easy Reader for counting and color words, matching numerals to numerals, and matching shapes to real world objects.
Literacy activities include reading CVC words and finding a matching picture, identifying letters by name and sound, sequencing the letters of the alphabet, creating sentences that focus on number and color words, reading and writing simple sight words, matching up letter buddies and beginning sounds, and identifying and counting syllables in words.
One of the activities included is 'Shape-cakes Puzzles' where students must match up the top of a cupcake to the bottom based on matching shape and real world item pictures. There is also an assessment sheet (or quick check) for every single activity. This activity has students cutting and gluing real world items to match shapes, and then tracing and free-hand drawing simple 2D shapes.
A Literacy activity that is included has students reading simple CVC words on cards, then coloring in the matching CVC picture on the recording sheet. The quick check included in this activity has students reading the CVC word and gluing the matching picture next to it!
I worked really hard on this packet and tried to include enough activities for you to differentiate for you kiddos those first few months of school. There are way too many activities in this packet to show them all to you, but know that this packet is chock-full of activities to help you through the beginning of the year!
I chose a dessert and snack food theme, since starting a new school year is always sweet! These activities should easily integrate into whatever units or themes you do at the beginning of the year, and soon I will be creating lessons on literature books that fit with this theme!
You can WIN ONE before they are available in my TPT store! I am currently waiting on my awesome friend Jill from Chevron and Centers to edit my Masterpiece and then I can upload it! While we're waiting, I thought it would be neat to raffle off a few! Two lucky winners will get this entire packet, stuffed full of activities to help you through those first few months! Just enter using the Rafflecopter below! I'll choose TWO WINNERS this weekend!
