Have you ever read the book Dear Polar Bear by Barry Ablett?
It is an adorable story about a lonely polar bear that sends letters to his friends all around the world. He asks each of them for something to help brighten up his home in the Arctic. 

We made this math lesson to go along with the story. However, you don't need the book to complete the math activity! This One-Time Prep math lesson has everything you need: exploration, modeling, cooperative group work, and an assessment. Just print, laminate, and cut out one time and the materials are ready for you year after year!
These materials can be used as an exploration activity to introduce the lesson or as an extension activity in centers. Children are to find the equation that matches each ten frame.
We have included 4 different number stories with counters for cooperative group work. We read the number stories to our children and then allow them time to work through the problem using their ten frame mat and counters. You can also use your own counters instead of the ones we included, up to you!


We have included an assessment for you also! You can use this after your lesson to assess children's understanding or you can use it for homework. 

Thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to check back throughout the week as more markdowns get added! Have a great week!

This CVC center features 20 different chimneys with pictures and stockings to spell each word. We have also included recording sheets too!

We split the 20 words into 4 different bags with 5 words each to allow more students to complete the center at the same time.

 The children lay the chimneys and stockings on the carpet in random order.

Children look at each picture in the chimney and use their knowledge of consonant and vowel sounds to spell each word. To spell a word, they hang the stockings on the chimney! So much holiday fun! 




Above the children were laying the stockings on the chimney. Another idea would be to put Velcro on the the stockings so the stockings stay in place. Both methods work beautifully!  


Here is an example of one of the recording sheets. 
We also included a differentiated version!

We hope your children love hanging their stockings to practice spelling CVC words too!

Don't forget about the TpT sale this Monday and Tuesday too! Everything in our store is discounted by 20%! Enter CYBER2016 at checkout and TpT will give you an additional 8% off! That is a 28% savings!! Woo hoo!!! Click the image below to be directed to our store. Thank you and have fun shopping!

These gingerbread houses and cookies are sure to put a smile on every one's face. They are just so adorable and hard to resist. Each gingerbread house is the home of a certain word family. The children will need to look at the picture on the gingerbread's belly and match them to their house. We have also included a self-checking answer key so they can see how well they did!


I spy with my little eye kindergartners having fun while learning! I Spy is one of our children's favorite fast finishers activities. They search the scene for hidden holiday words with a magnifying glass and then write the word on the recording sheet. We always encourage them to decode and read the words.


This game includes Dolch words on the Pre-Primer, Primer, First, Second, and Third Grade lists. We have included a lot of words so it is easier for you to differentiate to the levels of your children. Children will mix up the cards face down to create a draw pile. Each child who is playing the game should have their own game board. Players will take turns turning over a card and reading the sight word. If they can read it, they will find the holiday item name on their game board to match the holiday item picture on the sight word card. If that space on their game board is already covered, they lose their turn. If they cannot read their word, they can either draw another card or lose their turn, up to you! Players will take turns until both players have filled their game board and can read all of the words they collected. Another game full of fun and learning for all!

We saw the idea of this sight word game on Facebook from HeidiSongs and we fell in love. We knew our children would have a blast so we just had to recreate it for ourselves. We put sight words on the Santa cards that we have been learning in kindergarten. When you play the game you tape a picture of a present on the back of one of the Santa cards. A child chooses a card and then reads the word. If the word is read correctly, they turn over the card and see if they have found the present! 

Children will strengthen their knowledge of place value with this cute activity. They will match the correct toy sack to the right polar bear Santa. The toy sacks each have base ten blocks (tens and ones) that need to be counted and matched to the numeral on each Santa's hat. 

These adorable spinners are a hit in our classrooms!
These spinners are a great way for the children to practice their addition skills. We have included three different mats for easy differentiation. One mat has sets on each spinner that the children will add by counting how many. Another mat has a spinner with numerals and a spinner with sets. Children will first roll the number spinner and then count on to add the set. The last mat has numerals on each spinner for the children to add together. Each mat has a place for the children to record their number sentence after spinning.

We have included these print-and-go activities to help you in your planning during this busy time of the year. You can put them in your classroom centers or use as holiday themed homework.
Here is a little peek of what is included:
Label-a-Picture
Your children will have so much fun labeling and coloring fun pictures of Santa, a baker, and a Christmas tree. They will use the word bank provided to find the correct word.
Mixed Up Sentences
Learning how to read can be so hard. The key is to make the learning fun! These mixed up sentences are sure to be a hit! The children cut out all the words that are included. Then, they arrange the words to form a sentence that matches the picture and makes sense. We have included two scenes for you to choose from.
Count and Graph
We have included three different scenes for your children to practice their graphing skills. Each page also has two versions. One asks children to tally first and then graph while the other asks them to color and graph. Here is one of them:
Roll-a-Picture
Children need two dice to play this game. They will roll the dice, count, and add the dots on the two dice altogether, and then color the part of their picture with the correct numeral of the sum of their two dice. They keep playing until the whole picture is colored. There are five different pictures included.
Thanks for stopping by and reading all about our Crazy About Christmas centers. We hope you enjoy them in your classroom too!

Happy Holidays to all!

Perky Turkeys! is a fun and exciting literacy center to help your children learn and reinforce their rhyming skills. 

We have included 36 turkeys with a picture on their belly. Each turkey is looking for a friend that has a matching rhyming picture on her belly. The children like to say that the turkeys are boyfriend and girlfriend. Haha! Gotta love kindergartners!

First the children lay the cards out in random order in front of them so they can see all the pieces they are working with. We like to put Velcro on the cards so they stay together nicely.


The children then work together to match the rhyming turkeys. We encourage them to say the word on the turkey's belly to help them find the match and hear the rhymes verbally. 

We have also included three recording sheets with twelve rhyming pairs each. This gives you three different sets of rhyming turkeys for your literacy center. It also helps to cut down on the number of cards the children need to manipulate. 

They will record their rhyming matches by drawing a line to the correct rhyming pair. We have our children use dry erase markers for easy clean up!


Thank you so much for visiting our blog this week! 
Please share these fabulous Markdowns with your fellow teachers and check back throughout the week for more additions. 
Have a great week!
