I have been trying to go through my closets at school again because I have a lot of stuff in there, but I just have not had the opportunity to pull the stuff out. A lot of the items are great for the task boxes I have been using with my kiddos and trying to rotate every couple of weeks too.
 
Here is a simple one to make: A kleenex box, clothespins, and a container. The students clip the clothespins around the kleenex box and then once all the clothespins are on they remove them and put them in the container.
 
 
I found wooden screws in the closet. They are tricky for my little ones, but we will continue to practice.

 
Sorting coins.


 
I have started to compile a list of these different tasks so that I make sure to pull them out next year and use them with my kids.
 
This is the transportation bin I created last year. My kids LOVE digging through the beans with the different forms of transportation. I also have different road signs in there for the kids to identify and that we have talked about.
 
 
 
 
Now for a St. Patrick's day freebie. My kids love these roll and stamp counting games. Have a great Sunday!


Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

1. I didn't get the chance to share these cute little heart puppies we made last week. They turned out adorable!


2. This week we are learning about community helpers and transportation. We made police cars. We also have been learning about the tools that each community helper needs to do their job.



3. I have been trying to change out the materials that the kids use to match the letters. They definitely enjoy doing the abc mats with all sorts of things. Last week we used felt letters. This week we used stones with letter stickers. A Monday Made it project from the summer.

We also have been sorting out by color. The kids have enjoyed this and definitely need some continued practice with this.



4. We played this fun car game. All of my kids loved it! I wrote the letters on the road as the car mat. The student would roll a dice, move that many spaces, and then identify the letter. This could easily be done for any other skill too (shapes, number, etc.). The original idea came from Marsha at a Differentiated Kindergarten.

5. I also pulled the kids individually and had them practice fine motor writing in the sand. Another favorite by them all!

I hope you have a great weekend and don't forget to link up with Kacey!
