Kindergarten Checklist Assessments

I have been working on my Kindergarten Checklist Assessment Pack!  I am really excited about this because it is a fantastic comprehensive sit of checklists for kindergarten!  I have used checklists my entire teaching career and feel like they really help me to focus on what gaps the students need filled in.  I can quickly pull groups and really target in on skills they are missing!  
Included in this set thus far is: Letter Names, Letter Sounds, Lower Letter Sounds, Upper Letter Sounds, Writing Letters, Number Idenfication (0-10), Number Idenfication, Math Writing Skills, Can Count To, Counting Objects, Concepts of Print, Colors, Color Words, Shapes, Drawing Shapes, Shape Words, Oral Language, First Sound Fluency DIBELS, Phoneme Segmentation Fluency DIBELS, Non Sense Word DIBELS

So I have preloaded this set with over 20 checklists and will update it as the year goes on!  I hope you will stop by to see!  


I've hit 300 followers.  Head on over to my blog to pick up your freebies.

Christmas Around the World!!

I just finished my Christmas Around the World Unit. It is a whopping 108 pages and will be on sale this week for $6 for its debut. If you teach about Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, I hope you find this helpful. I have also included the beloved Santa Claus, Rudolph, and a few elves too. This packet covers a lot and I can’t wait to use it in my classroom (after the break of course, ehem). I am off the whole week. Whoo hooo!!! Come by and see me. I just posted pictures of my very own holiday decorations around my house. Have a great week! Don't work too hard!!

Turkey Teens!

Hey gang!  It's been a while since I've ventured over here!  Holy moly, this year has been crazy busy!  But I'm excited to take a second and share a little Turkey Teen numbers freebie with you.  And beg all of you awesome kindergarten teachers for some assistant advice!  Head on over to my blog to help a girl out {and grab your copy of this fun teen numbers worksheet}.

Turkey Talk!

Going along with the theme of Thankfulness, here is a fun worksheet to put in your writing center or to create a class book during the next two weeks. So, what are you thankful for? My husband put this on his facebook yesterday “What if you woke up tomorrow and only had what you thanked God for yesterday?” I then of course commented that I hope he thanked God for MEoh and the kids. LOL! Then I commented again”Does this mean if I thank God every day for a husband that is never grouchy, I am golden?” Haha! No comment from him. But seriously, what are you thankful for and have you 
shared this with your students this week?

Come By and grab this free worksheet!
