Apple-Themed Fine Motor Activities



One of my favorite themes in preschool and kindergarten has always been apples.  There are so many different things you can do with apples that are hands-on: apple stamping, apple graphing, apple sorting, and apple tasting!

January Literacy Centers for Kindergarten



I recently added the January literacy centers to my Kindergarten Literacy Centers Bundle and I'm going to share all about them today!  These centers are non-thematic so they can be used in any setting and can be rearranged as needed. 

Word Spinners Recording Pages {Freebie!}



Hi there!  I recently found these word spinners at Target and realized how awesome they would be for literacy centers or morning work tubs.  I asked on my Facebook page whether anyone would be interested in free recording pages for them and I got lots of responses, so I made them!

Back-to-School Fine Motor Activities


As a former K-2 special education teacher and kindergarten teacher, I have always been passionate about fine motor work.  At the beginning of the school year in kindergarten, I always had some students who had acceptable fine motor skills.  I would also have some sweeties that were still refining their fine motor skills.  I knew that I would have to provide lots of opportunities for them to cut, write, use playdough, and more.

Earth Day Exploration Stations or Centers


Earlier this year, I created a set of Kansas Day-themed stations that I absolutely fell in love with.  Similar to my morning work tubs, I really enjoy creating activities that work perfectly in tubs or at centers and their format really allows me to be creative.  With Earth Day coming up, I decided to go a similar route and I created this brand-new Earth Day Exploration Stations/Centers pack!

Mermaid Letter Tracing Cards



Hey there!  Today, I wanted to take just a second to share this adorable activity that I made for my three year-old!  She is fascinated by mermaids and we stumbled upon this fun tape at Target that reminded us of mermaids.  I decided to turn it into a hands-on alphabet activity for her.
