Our students just love this adorable beginning sound center!
Each bat has a letter written on its belly. The children need to give each bat a pair of wings. To do this, children will have to look at the picture on the wings and determine the beginning sound. They will then match the wing with the bat that has the correct letter. Each letter has two pictures included. The vowels have one wing that will represent the short vowel sound and one wing that will represent the long vowel sound. 

The children lay out the bats and the wings so they can easily see the pictures and letters at the same time. We have them "test" or isolate the beginning sound of one picture and then place it beside the body of the bat with the corresponding letter.

Here, a child is beginning to match a few of the wings to the correct bats...

The "Bb" bat is complete!

"Mm" is for monkey and mailbox...great work!

We are "going batty" in our classrooms this week with this center and bunches of other bat-themed books and activities! Excited for a great week!

Have you ever read The Deep Blue Sea by Audrey Wood?
We love to read this book during our Colors All Around unit. It is a great book to use for retelling, sequencing, and repetitive reading.

Included in this pack are retelling/sequencing pieces (both color and black/white), several writing response journals, 
and an interactive reproducible book.
You and your students will have a blast retelling this story!

We like to copy the pieces onto colored construction paper, however,
the children do need to color the rainbow for the end of the story:
Here they are retelling the story by adding the pieces in order.
The final product:

Here, one child is coloring the interactive book pieces...

Then, matching words to add picture clues to the book...

Finally, they are tracking print and using picture clues while reading.

We also have a PowerPoint in our store to give the children a visual to help them while they are sequencing. You can check it out here.

We hope you enjoy this story and activity pack on super sale this week!

Hi! We are Kelly and Kim blogging from Kelly and Kim's Kindergarten Kreations.
We are both kindergarten teachers who love technology, fonts, clipart, and creating new and engaging activities for our kinder kids.

We love working on our classroom organization! Even though at times it is quite a struggle to stay organized, we really do work at it! Here are some of our Sterilite drawers and the toolbox that we have in our classrooms to help us out along the way:

We love our classroom theme: Jungle! We used to change the theme yearly, but have stayed with the Jungle theme now for three years and each year we add a little more and we love it!!


We love watching the children work together in cooperative groups. It just warms our hearts to see them working with each other and helping those that are having trouble grasping a concept. We work in cooperative groups pretty much every day!

Most importantly we love the children!! They are why we do what we do! We love seeing them smile, hearing their giggles, and especially love when they have that ah-ha moment and just "get it". And let's face it, where else can you go to work every day and get hugs and have people say they love you?!

To celebrate our new collaborative adventure, The Primary Pack is hosting a giveaway with tons of fabulous prizes!

Enter the rafflecopter below for a chance to win!

Our "Colors All Around" pack is full of books and activities that focus on different colors while providing lots of practice on early reading strategies and fine motor skills.

The reproducible interactive color books provide practice with coloring, cutting, gluing, left to right reading, tracking print, word matching, identifying high frequency words, and using picture clues! Wow! Soooo many important skills in one activity! Each book uses a predicable text pattern with a variety of introductory sight words for beginning readers. We have included books for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, white, and black in this pack! 



Also included in this pack are pictures for coloring, cutting and gluing practice. We like to call this coloring and cutting boot camp! Haha! After our colors unit and lots of practice with somewhat tricky shapes, their coloring and cutting improves a ton, no matter where they began. Then, we turn their hard work into a keepsake paint palette book to save at home. Fun!

Coloring the pictures!

A finished page!

Cover of the book!

Our students absolutely love this fun and engaging scavenger hunt! They have fun working in cooperative groups to match a numeral to a set. Each group has a checklist which shows how many of each object they must find on their scavenger hunt. 

First, children line up the numerals in correct order.

Then they go on a hunt around the classroom for the set of objects that have the correct number they need from their checklist. 

They bring the set back to where their numbers are lined up and match the set with the correct numeral.

Then they check the set off of their checklist.

All done!

We hope you enjoy this activity as much as we do!

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!

Who LOVES the "old lady" books? We do...and so do our students!

This weekend, we are offering our entire pack for There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves for FREE in our TpT store! The pack has 24 pages of retelling, writing, and match activities to go along with this fun book for you to use in your classroom. We hope you love it!

We have a color copy of the old lady in the pack as well as a reproducible one for students to color.

We laminate the lady, cut the laminating out of her mouth, cut a backside, and staple them together.

Here is a child coloring her old lady:

We also have color and reproducible copies of the objects the lady eats in the story.

Here a child is looking back in the book so she colors her pictures the right color.

After examining the book, she gets to work!

Now, she is ready to eat!

The children retell the story by sequencing the items that she eats while they feed them to the lady. They think it's hilarious that they can feed her and see the pictures in her belly!


The children love to tell the story together or take turns being the storyteller. We like to put our color copies in our reading center for more fun practice later so the children can bring their own ladies home with them.

Not pictured, but also included in this (temporarily) free pack are writing follow-ups to the story and a related fall-themed complete math lesson on tally marks and data collection.

If you LOVE this lady, you can find similar packs in our story for the following books:

Soon, we will also be adding There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books and Lucille Colandro's new version of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!

This freebie is part of the September Fun & Free Facebook Hop! Sooooo.....you can grab more freebies from other teachers too! Head on over to our Facebook page, follow the "Fun & Free" tab on the side, and hop through the pages of several teachers' pages to snag up some more goodies today and tomorrow only! Have fun!
