Tops and Bottoms


Isn't this book just the cutest?  I created some google slide activities to go with it.  All the slides are geared towards building their comprehension (sequencing, comprehension quick check, character traits, using evidence, favorite part, cause and effect, opinion writing, text to self connections, and vegetable sorting)  

Click here to take you to my resource:

Here are some sample pics of the slides I created...

This is an amazing tool to have when planting seeds (TIP:  carrots take a long time to grow big, so do what I did... buy a carrot at the grocery store and throw it in towards the end! :). )

This is similar to the one I have on amazon.  Click on the product to bring you to the amazon link:

Here are some more that I would think about purchasing for the classroom:

 The Snowy Day.... Does anyone not love this book?  This is probably my favorite book to read to my class.   I can't let those distance learners miss out on this amazing book.   There is so much missing when you are not in the classroom... the conversations, the teachable moments, etc...my hope is that this resource helps you during these times!

Have a fun with a  snowy day!

 Hip! Hip! Hooray!  It's the 100th Day!

This is by far one of the most favorite days in a Kindergartener's life!  They get so excited for this big day.  We are lucky enough to be fully in school learning this year and I plan to use these digital activities in the classroom.    I hope that they are helpful for those teaching and learning virtually as well.  They are made with Google Slides and you can pick and choose which slides you want for your particular students. For example, on the slide that I have them count by 5's and 10's, I gave you 2 options: type in the answers OR drag the correct numbers... Some teachers and students like to drag their answers, and some like to type.  What is your preference?

This unit includes 14 different literacy and math activities:

Happy 100th Day!

Thanksgiving Ideas Using Google Slides

 Oh how I just love Turkey Trouble.  It is one of our favorites in November.  We usually read this one over and over... my class just falls in love with the character.  

Although we aren't virtual now, I created this resource with Google Slides.  We are using it in the classroom.  If we ever do have to go virtual, they will be familiar with moving images and typing in their answers.   

Here's the book on amazon:

Here's the book read to you by the wonderful Awnie from Storytime at Awnie's House.  She is AMAZING!  I usually read the book aloud in class and then have them listen to it again later that day or the next day, using Awnie's House.  

I created 8 literacy activities and 1 math activity to use with your class.  Here is description of the activities:

What’s Included...

  8. Phonemic awareness - The students will read words from the story and count the syllables. (drag your answers). - 3 slides

  10. Sentence matching. The students will drag and drop the sentence to match the given picture from the story to make a complete sentence. (drag and drop) - 2 slides

The activities are differentiated and can be used in a primary classroom.  Here are some pictures! If are interested in checking this out on TPT, click here or any of the pictures below.  Gobble gobble!
