Melissa from Jungle Learners has been working hard organizing an awesome product swap- Stop, Swap & Roll. Be sure to check out the swap for some great ideas and products!
I was lucky enough to be paired up with Pam from Mrs. P's Specialties. She has some really great products!
My kinders LOVE anything playdoh and were really excited for me to add her cute Read & Do Playdough Mats- Spring edition to our literacy stations. Click on the picture below to check it out for yourself!.
This unit is perfect for Spring! The unit contains 18 playdoh mats in the spring theme. Many of the mats offer two versions for differentiating. I found this very helpful when I first tried it out with two of my students. They love reading the instructions and following the directions to complete the mat.
This mat was a favorite of all of my girls. They thought it was so cool to add clouds and a heart to the rainbow!
One of my students that just started to read was so proud of himself that he was able to read this mat on his own and complete it. He had so much fun adding two flowers and a hat to this mat.
I overheard this student tell her friend that they should pick this literacy station everyday! This unit contains a lot of creative contents that your students are sure to love!
The mats below are a great example of the differentiation you will find in this unit. I found that this unit worked great with both my high, mid and low readers. This unit combines reading, fine motor and sensory all in one! Mrs. P is offering not only this unit but also her other three fabulous Read & Do Playdough Mats- Fall, Winter & Summer on sale for the next three days.

Ahhhh the first week of school! My first day is actually tomorrow. We all know how hard we work setting up our rooms and preparing for a new school year. I have put together a little freebie for the first day of Kindergarten. Click below to check it out:
This freebie includes a mini book, headband and coloring page. My kinders LOVE headbands! This freebie will be perfect for the first day of Kindergarten.
I tried to come up with something for the kiddos to do in the morning while I unpack their supplies, I decided to buy each student a tub of Play doh (0.50 a tub at Walmart). I also printed out and laminated their names for them to manipulate their Play doh with. This will help with those fine motor skills while also helping them learn to spell, recognize and write their name. I plan to use these in centers as well.

I am in my sixth year of teaching Kindergarten and couldn't see myself teaching any other grade! I am lucky enough to be teaching at the same school my mom teaches 2nd grade at. I love creating fun & engaging activities for my students to use.
