Making Shapes, Words and Opinions

We are continuing on this amazing journey of literacy and growth!  Kindergarten is the perfect place to see my students begin to blossom like the flowers in my garden.  Each one, beautiful, amazing and in need of an extra bit of something from this crazy teacher.  It's a reminder of how blessed I am to have a God that is bigger than what I face each day.  Here's a glimpse into our "garden" over the last few weeks.

Hope you all have a great week!
Be sure to check out these awesome, new, math printables available in my TPT Store!

Be Blessed,

Hello Everyone!  I'm super excited that we are diving into our new Investigations Unit 5 on Shapes!  As I continue my GLAD journey, I am beginning to apply it to each subject in my classroom.  I put together this little number for my kids, and wanted to share it with you too!  I will be creating a large Process Grid, which we will be able to refer back to over the course of the unit.  I recently assessed my kids to see if there were any shapes that they were still struggling with within the WA state standards and will spend more time on those holes, but alas, that rectangle was a hard one.  You'd think it would be a sphere (super cute when they say it with loose teeth), but was the rectangle.  Bizarre. But, that is easy to fix, right?  I love opening their eyes to the shapes all around them, and this clip art from Teacher Laura was a super fun way to help them start to see shapes.  Don't forget some of these literature shapes staples too!

Here's the FREEBIE I promised!
