Freebie Friday!

Today's freebie is all about APPLES! 3 different Play-doh activies: Measure and make worms; Roll the correct number of apples for the tree; Make the number mats.  A literacy center where students pick a sight word apple and record.  Lastly, a letter Aa sort.

I do have one request from you though!! :)  If you download this freebie, will you help me out by clicking on this link and voting for my project for my classroom? Thanks!!

Freebie Friday

My advice to new Kinder teachers - allow your students time to grow and mature before trying to present a 20-30 minute lesson where they do nothing but sit on the rug.  They simply can not do it and IF they actually stay sitting the whole time, I promise you lost their focus at least half way through it.  :)  Something that I've heard year after year, but helps remind me - a child can only keep true attention for about 1 minute for each year of age. Therefore, my 5 year-olds can handle just around 5 minutes before needing to get up, move, sing, dance, etc.

My freebie for you today is a Smart board file that provides links to many great Brain Break videos and also some good classroom management videos. The links can easily be changed to YOUR favorites by right-clicking on the record or note and unlocking it. Then, right-click again and go down to "link". Remove the current link that I've attached and paste in your own link. Just delete the picture of the old video and take a pic of your new one.  I hope these come in handy for you. Have a great Friday!
