I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for five for Friday!
Here are some of the fun activities we have been up to the past couple of weeks: 
Pumpkins, spiders, and bats, oh my!
1. We have been practicing counting and writing 1-6. 

The spider spin and trace is part of my Halloween Games pack. 

2. We have been loving using the storyboards for story time. This has really helped my kiddos out keeping their attention and has been a quick and easy way to assess comprehension for verbal and nonverbal students. You can check out the story board pack here. 

Pumpkin, Pumpkin we used the storyboard and I again assessed their understanding of how a pumpkin grows. The pumpkin w.s. is available in my pumpkin pack. 

3. We have been writing in our writing journals. 

4. We have been exploring the sensory table. 

5. We have been making some crafts! 

We laced webs and added a spider ring to it!

Today is my little guy's 4th birthday! Time sure does fly. I started this blog when I was pregnant with him, which is also crazy to think about! Well, I need to finish up some last minute things for his party! Have a great weekend and GO BLUE!!!!

Many of my students know the letters of the alphabet but need to work on the sounds or understanding that the letters are in words and all around us. 

Each week I introduce a new letter to the kiddos. Here are the activities we do each week to review the letter.


Alphatales Book is read. The kids enjoy them and there is a fun song at the end. 

We watch ABC Mouse video:

Is the letter in your name pocket chart activity?

You can find this in my Mystery Bag pack. (There are lots of fun goodies in there and I have been adding regularly). 


Letter Bag and Letter Activities. This year I have been using the letter activities from my ABC Mega Pack.  We work on discriminating upper and lower case letters, identifying the letter, writing the letter, and the letter sound. 

We watch the Have Fun Teaching Letter Song. 

We also look at and repeat the pictures from the ABC Sounds Photo Cards from Lakeshore. 

For the pm we try to put the words into a sentence. 

is show and tell and the students bring in an item that begins with letter. This note has really helped to make sure that all my kiddos send something in. I put the show and tell on a monthly calendar too but some of the parents misplace it or forget so the note has helped to get more participation! 

You can grab this note freebie here. 

Do you do a letter of the week and if so what activities do you love to do?!

Have a great week!
