A Super Craft Website

I found a website recently that shares so much content for kindergarten teachers that I am very excited about sharing it with you. It's filled with so many crafts and printables for all ages of kids. It's called Krokotak. Wow! Those crafts are really amazing! I especially like the range of crafts for those tiny preschool hands. There are so many great ideas that I'm sure you will find what you need and more!

If you really want more good resources then you are going to love this amazing deal over at Educents!  I have teamed up with 17 other amazing sellers to load your classrooms with 19 resources!

My product entitled, 'Real Or Not Real' included in this curriculum bundle will surely be loved by your students!

These cards can help your students distinguish reality from fantasy. The activity allows your students to think critically about graphics and illustrations that are presented to them. There are 80 picture cards for your kiddos to sort into two categories: Reality or Fantasy. For any success to occur your students must first look at the picture and then ask critical questions in order to make a correct choice. You can guide them here. One possible question is:
"Can this really happen?"
At the end of this sorting activity your kids can draw illustrations of what occurs as a reality and what can be fictitious. The template for this drawing activity is also included. Teacher support and scaffolding is highly recommended.

For a limited time you can get my product in this amazing preschool curriculum bundle for $29.99 from Educents which is over 70% off!  It also includes these other great products so there is sure to things you love!  (They even have $10 off for first time customers… so it can be even cheaper if you have never bought anything from Educents!)

I recently resumed my studies so I may be a bit lazy at posting for a while, but do try to drop in now and again to see what I'm up to! See yah!

12 Common Reading Errors and How to Overcome Them

Reading is the act of making meaning from the printed word, symbols or pictures in one's environment. Children are often taught to read formally using a multifaceted approach which involves word recognition, comprehension, fluency and motivation. As they grow and as their reading exposures increase many begin to struggle and are soon left behind if they do not form meaningul connections. Teachers must be able to find those who have not quite gotten the hang of reading and to make attempts to assist them. There are many reasons why the act of reading may be difficult for some, nevertheless, it is important to find the possible causes and to employ corrective measures to help overcome them. In my 24 years of teaching I have used many different reading strategies in my classroom, however, I believe that the most powerful tool a teacher can use with her students is actually listening to them read and individually note their progress.   This article summarizes 12 common errors t

How To Teach Creative Writing To Young Children

Teaching children to write creatively is not something that you can complete at any one particular grade level. It involves a series of planned situations and activities that gradually lead to independent writing. From as early as preschool a child's writing begins to take shape as he learns to interpret print. As he grows his understanding of that print is translated into a greater command of the language. Essentially, as he progresses through the grade levels his writing unfolds as a more personal stamp. As a teacher my goal is to d evelop the writing skills  of my students. This means that I must slowly direct each child to writing independently. To do so I must model good writing, write with them collaboratively, guide their efforts and allow them to work on their own. These stages are summed up under the following headings: Modeled Writing Shared Writing Guided Writing Independent Writing 1. Modeled Writing In this initial step I must
