Groundhog Day Preschool Centers

Groundhog Day Preschool Centers I found some cute groundhog clip art and just had to make a packet for your preschool and kinder kiddos with them! PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Groundhog Day Preschool Centers packet. You can download the free sample pages by click on the photos. To purchase the complete Groundhog Day Preschool Centers packet, please click here! Groundhog Fine Motor Practice First up is a fine motor activity – all you need to do is print, laminate for durability and provide your kiddos with some buttons (or any other small items) and your ready to go! Groundhog Beginning Sounds Match Next is a beginning sounds matching activity. If your kiddos are not yet ready to match pictures to beginning sounds, children can order the letters alphabetically. Or, you can print two copies and do a letter matching game or memory game. There are lots of fun literacy options with these lil’ guys! (Click the photo below to download letters A-F.) Groundhog Number Match Like the beginning sounds activity, this can be differentiated to meet the different learning stages of your kiddos. For your higher students, you could print two copies and use the groundhogs with the dots as subitizing cards. Or, you could add them together. (Click the photo below to download numbers 1-6.) Groundhog Shape Match For this activity, children match the top hat 2D shapes to the groundhog that is holding the matching shape. (Click the photo below to download the pictured shapes.) Groundhog Color Match For this activity, children match the colored top hats to the groundhog of the same color (Click the photo below to download the pictured colors.) Groundhog Shadow Match It wouldn’t be Groundhog Day if we didn’t have a shadow matching activity, right? (Click the photo below to download the pictured cards.) Groundhog Day Patterns The last activity is an AB pattern activity where children select which picture is required to complete the pattern. I hope you found the samples here useful in helping you decide whether this is something you could use with your kiddos! Click the picture below to purchase the complete unit from my TpT store.

Sight Words and Word Families Week 2

Sight Words and Word Families Week 2 You know what they say, “Better late than never!” I popped in today to show you what Filip and I did for Sight Words and Word Families Week 2 and to give you some free samples of what we used to help you decide whether you’d like to try these activities or worksheets in your own classroom or home. You can read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 1 here.  Week 2 sight words: can, me, the, you Focus word family: an After we took down the first week’s worksheets, I glued them into a project book. As well as displaying our sight words and word family words in the room, I glued them into the project book like so. (Click the photo to download the sight words and word family word wall. Click here to purchase the complete Pre-Primer Sight Words Word Wall packet and here for the complete Word Family Posters packet.) Many of the activities we did this week are the same as what we did during the first week, but since it’s been so long since I blogged about the first week, I know you won’t mind seeing the activities again. We started each day with a Sight Words Word Find. (Click the photo to get this week’s word find freebies.) We then moved on to doing a Sight Words Cut and Paste activity. I love these worksheets as they focus on correct letter sequence and help children to grasp the concept that letter sequence is vital when reading and writing. (Click the photo to get this week’s sight words cut and paste worksheet freebies.) Then Filip did a Sight Word Q-tip activity. Of course, this was always his favourite because he got to paint and sprinkle glitter and all that stuff we all love 😉 (Click the photo to download some q-tip sight word freebies.) We did the above sight word activities Monday – Thursday. Each day, we also read from my Sight Words Fluency Reading Homework packet. I LOVE this resource as it incorporates both sight words and CVC words. AND each page builds on the previous one, making sure that sight words learnt in the past are never forgotten! This week, I printed out all the pages and bound them into a booklet. I think I like having them like this more than putting them into plastic sleeves. (Click the photo to get the pictures pages.) Friday, I decided to test my lil’ man to see how he... read more
