Winter Preschool Centers

Winter Preschool Centers Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed some much needed time away from the computer screen to be with my family these past couple of weeks! Anyway, I popped in today to give you guys a sneak peak at what’s included in my Winter Preschool Centers. This is a resource I made earlier this year, but never got a change to blog about it, so here I am 🙂 PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Winter Preschool Centers packet. You can download the free sample pages by click on the photos in the post. To purchase the complete Winter Preschool Centers packet, please click here! Winter Write and Wipe Alphabet Tracing Cards The first activity is an upper and lower case letter tracing activity. I laminated the cards, cut them apart and then made a hole in the top corner of each card. I secured them together with a key ring. Provide kiddos with an erasable marker or crayon and they’re ready to go! (Click the photo to get letters A-F.) Hat and Mittens Letter and Beginning Sounds Match As with all my preschool packets, I included an alphabet matching activity. You could use just the mittens...

Christmas Preschool Centers

Christmas Preschool Centers I am pretty sure that I say this every year, but I LOVE Christmas. It is my most favorite time of the year. I love the pretty colors and decorations and, if I liked gingerbread cookies, I am SURE I would also love the smell of baked gingerbread cookies! There is something about ginger that just doesn’t sit well with my taste buds… Yesterday, I made a green juice and the recipe asked for ginger. So, I did what any person who doesn’t like a certain ingredient does – I halved the quantity. Well. Let me just say. I should have just left it out completely. I had to hold my nose to drink the stuff! But we are getting away from the real reason we are here today: to take a sneak peek at my Christmas Preschool Centers and to give you a few freebies to help you decide whether this is something you would like to use in your classroom or home! (Please note: This post does not contain all the pages included in my Christmas Preschool Centers, just a few sample pages!

Thanksgiving Preschool Centers

I came across the most adorable turkey clip art by South Street Creative a couple of days ago and knew just what to do! Why, some turkey center activities, of course! Here is a sneak peak at what’s included in my Thanksgiving Preschool Centers packet. Of course, these activities can be used with your Kindergarten kiddos too 🙂 (Please note: This post does not contain all the pages included in my Thanksgiving Preschool Centers, just a few sample pages! If you wish to purchase the complete Thanksgiving Preschool Centers packet, please click here!) First up, is an alphabet (all upper and lower case letters are included) and beginning sounds sorting activity. (Click the photo below to get letters A-D). Normally, I would use velcro for an activity like this, but I decided to try it with adhesive magnets which I purchased from e-bay. The magnets worked well to keep all the feathers in place behind the turkey, but they did not magnetize powerfully enough to keep the feathers in place if the turkey was lifted off the table. If you don’t want the feathers to fall off, velcro is the way to go. If you hate the idea of your kiddos having to pull off one turkey feather at a time when packing up, then magnets are the way to go. I suggest you...

Autumn Preschool Centers

There is something almost magical about autumn. The leaves change colour from green to yellow, orange and varying shades of red, the air smells crisp, smoke fills the air as fireplaces take center stage in many homes…  Unless you live in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Which is where I live. In that case, you can expect to see trees that are for-ever green and never change colour because, well, Australian trees are mostly evergreens. The air doesn’t necessarily smell crisp either; it smells wet. As for fireplaces… Well, have you heard of “ducted heating”? Needless to say, autumn in Australia is not as fabulous as it is in Romania, where I first fell in love with this magical season, nor in America. But that didn’t stop me from creating my new Autumn Preschool Centers resource! It’s spring in Australia, but I promised that I would make this resource in time for autumn in the U.S., so here it is! I had so much fun creating this packet and I hope your kiddos enjoy using it 🙂 (Please note: This post does not contain all the pages included in my Autumn Preschool Centers, just a few sample pages!

Sight Words and Word Families

Sight Words and Word Families Okay. Please don’t get mad. I know I said I would blog about Filip’s next step on his reading journey wayyy back at the start of the year. And I didn’t. And that’s bad. I know… I’m sorry. Just so you know, I felt really guilty about it. I mean, I had the photos all on my computer; all that I needed to do was edit them and write the posts. But, you see, I was really busy with life and creating resources for my Sunday School kiddos, and I just never found the time to blog. (You can see some of my Sunday School stuff here, although I do need to add to some new content there too – which I will… soonish!) Anyhow, moving along… I have a bit of an internal battle for quite a while; I couldn’t decide whether to introduce sight words to Filip. I knew we only had a month or two before he would head off to school and there he would be introduced to the super rigorous phonics curriculum called LEM Phonics. I worried that teaching him to “memorise” sight words would confuse him and he would stop trying to sound out words. I mean, I...
