These Alphabet Poems would be a great addition to your classroom. Included are 26 fill-in-the-blank poems. Each poem is composed of several sentences that all have a missing word. Children can use the illustrations and word bank provided to complete each poem.
These poems hit on many skills including tracking print, decoding words, finding rhyming pairs, and writing.

Here is an example of one of the poems:

Here are two children working very hard on their poem for the week!


We like to use the three-prong folders to store a full set of poems for each child. 

In kindergarten, these poems are the perfect addition to our letter of the week activities. On Fridays of each week, we complete the poem for the letter of the week to review the letter, words beginning with the letter, while also working on reading fluency together. 

These poems can easily be used in other grades for an independent work choice. We hope your children love them as much as ours do...especially when all 26 are finished and they get to take them home to read!

There is so much to think about when you are getting your classroom ready for a new school year...From classroom organization, to classroom management, to classroom decor!  The list goes on and on, but we are here to help! We are happy to be sharing some of our classroom decorations that are sure to put a smile on your face!


We have always loved having a classroom theme. We have tried out many different ones over the years and we have loved it as much as the children. We are super excited to share with you our ocean themed classroom decor, "Under the Sea!" Many of the items included are editable!

~Classroom Rules~
You can edit these classroom rules to make them your own or you can keep them as they are, it is up to you!

~Helper Chart and Animals~

We always have classroom helpers so the children can help keep their learning environment neat and clean. You can customize the names and classroom jobs to your liking.

~Number Display~
These number, word, and set posters will add some color to your classroom! Our students use them daily for counting, writing, addtion, and more. We have included numbers 0-20.



~Classroom Birthday Chart~

This birthday poster is completely editable for you to display everyone's birthday!

~Where Are We? Chart~
Do others know where you are when you leave your classroom? This chart will let them know. We display ours outside of our classroom and it is a child's job to change it daily.

~Growth Chart~
We love using this growth chart to take pictures of our children at the beginning and end of the year to show how much they have changed over the months. It is one of our favorite things to look at and compare at the end of the year.

~Attendance Match-Ups~
This is a fun and easy way to see who is at school every day. The children match their clown fish to the correct sea anemone. You can edit the names to meet your needs. You can have the children match their first name to their first name, their first name to their last name, or any other way you would like. 

~Attitude Board~
This is a quick and easy way to check in with your children each morning to see how they are feeling. You display their names and the children pick an emotion that tells how they are feeling. We allow children to change their emotions throughout the day.


~Student Folder Cover~
This adorable ocean themed folder cover can be used for your student's communication folder that goes to and from school or for whatever you want! It is editable to meet your needs.

~Teacher Binder Cover and Spines~

~Desk Nameplates~


We have included 4 different versions of this nameplate. Each one is editable and will be a great resource for your students. Each nameplate has the alphabet and a number line showing numbers 0-20. It also shows a left hand and a right hand to help children to remember to always read and write from left to right. 



~Word Wall Letters~

How adorable are these? They will help add a little color to your classroom word wall.



~Hundreds Chart Number Cards~

These ocean animals are just waiting to help your students count by 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s. They can also help with addition and subtraction too!

~Crayon Jar Labels and Circles~
These crayon jar labels and circle compliment each other perfectly to use as you want. If you like to use crayon jars in your classroom, you can add your student's names to the label and tape to the crayon jar. The circles can be used so the child knows where to store their crayons when they are not being used. 

As you can see, these tags are very versatile and can be used for many different things. 

Below, they are used to label centers or "can do" activities for fast finishing students.


~Small Group Cards~

We have included 4 group header cards and 24 student cards.


~Pencil Box Labels~
Like many of the other items in this pack, these pencil box labels can be edited in the font and color of your choice and can be used for a variety of purposes in your classroom!


~Lunch Selection Cards~

These adorable ocean animals are donning their chef hats and are ready to help your students choose their lunches on a daily basis. All you have to do is type their names and print for use.

~Computer Tags~
These tags can be used to keep student log-in information, email addresses, websites, and passwords in one place. Or....use them for another purpose you can think of!

~Writing Folder Labels~
These ocean animals are ready to hold onto all of your students writing journals, or even math or reading notebooks! You can add their name and put on the outside of their folders for easy identification.


~First Week Award~
The first week is always so hard, for students and for teachers! Make them feel good for a job well done!! 

~"Reading is an Adventure!" Bookmarks~
These fun bookmarks match the growth chart! We give each child a bookmark to take home to use for their nightly reading. 


~Cubby Tags~
Who can resist these super cute diver children? You can dress up your cubbies to match the ocean theme. They are sure to make everyone smile when they see them! The best part...they are FREE!! You can find them here in our store!



Thank you for stopping by! We hope you find joy in this classroom decor pack as you make it your own!

Ocean Patterns is a great way for your children to practice finding the missing pieces of patterns and naming patterns. It allows them to use reasoning skills to solve a problem. Children can work by themselves or with others in a cooperative group. 

We have included everything you will need for this lesson: exploration, teacher modeling, cooperative group materials, and an individual assessment. The great thing about the lesson materials is that they are one-time prep! All you have to do is print, laminate, cut, and store. You will have this lesson ready to go right at your fingertips for years to come!


During exploration we like to give small groups of children materials for them to manipulate and discuss. We ask them questions to help get them started and thinking about math. For example: What do you think we may be learning about today? What could you do with these cards to practice math? 

We then ask each group to share their thoughts and what they think we might be learning today. Their answers include: 
"We will be sorting." 
"We could make patterns." 
"We could count them."

At the end of exploration, we explain to the children that we will be learning about how to find the missing parts of patterns and name different patterns as well. We then move into the modeling example that we have included in this lesson for you. 
We like to put our children into groups of 2-4 children. Each group gets pattern name cards, pattern strips, and missing pattern pieces.

Children will examine each strip and look at the parts of the pattern that are shown. They will use the pieces provided to work through figuring out the missing pieces of each pattern. 

We like to walk around and listen to each group as they work through the patterns together. It is a great opportunity for us to listen to their use of math talk, their ability to work through the task, as well as their ability to work with and listen to others. 
After completing the patterns the children are to name each one by placing the correct pattern name card next to each strip.  
We then encourage them to go back and check their work to make sure each pattern is done correctly and matches the label they have given it. 

We like to add Velcro to the pattern strips and pattern pieces. This helps to keep the pattern pieces in place while the children are working. It is also easy for the children to take pieces apart during clean-up.




We have also included an individual assessment for you to use after the lesson to check for understanding. You will be able to assess their ability to analyze a pattern, find its missing pieces, and name the pattern correctly. 



Thank you so much for visiting! We hope everyone has a great week and a Happy 4th of July! Thank you to all of those that have served or are currently serving in the military so we can live in the "Land of the Free!"

This week we are featuring our newest creation, Dippin’ Differences! This is a great summer-themed way for your students to practice their basic subtraction facts from 0 to 10! It is a fun, one-time prep subtraction center for your classroom. 

This activity pack includes 66 pages of ice cream scoops and ice cream cones to create math facts. We split the facts up into several different bags (centers) so the children aren't overwhelmed by the number of pieces. We first have them lay all the cones out so they can see the differences that they will need to build equations for. Next, they will look at all of the scoops and start working. We encourage our children to use manipulatives of their choice if they are needed. We are always impressed by their ability to work through the equations, even without manipulatives. 


Children can use these materials as a whole group, in small groups, or at a cooperative or independent math center. We have also included 3 different recording sheets, an individual assessment, and ideas for differentiation.

We hope you enjoy this new ice cream themed center! It is a great way to help your children learn their subtraction facts!
Have a wonderful week!
