It is nearing that time again - Back to School! And what better way to start your preparations than to find some really awesome deals at TPT's Back to School sale!
Here are a few of my favorite Back to School resources.....
We introduce letters alphabetically and the kids create an alphabet book that becomes a really cute keepsake that the kids can read all summer long. We introduce both the name and the letter. We also introduce whether the letter is a consonant or a vowel. We introduce all these skills at the beginning of the year and practice, practice, practice them all year. We discuss long vowel sounds, double letters, and digraphs. As each letter or letter combination is introduced, the children create a picture for each letter using step by step directions. I start the year doing each step with the kids, but by the end of the year, all I have to do is display the step by step poster and they can create their page independently. Here are a few examples of kid made work:
This one is hot off the press and I am looking forward to getting it up in my classroom!
Because I teach in A Catholic School, we begin the year discussing our families as well as God's family. I use this resource when teaching that unit.
