Staying Busy in January

YAY!  Happy New Year!  So excited to be starting a new year.  It's always fun to get some resolutions out there and seeing them through.  My goal is to travel more.  I love to travel and take vacations with my hubby once a year.  However I would like to add a vacation and a few small side trips.  I hope that could happen!

Now that we are almost back at school (womb womp),  I created my latest Staying Busy in January.  It's filled with lots of cute printables, writing prompts and more perfect for this month. I know I always use my other Staying Busy Packs for centers, homework, classwork and even early finishers.  It really is your choice.  My little ones love completing them.  Let's take a look at what's inside…

I include a printable like this in every pack.  It has so many things the students should be practicing on; reading, writing, making connections and creating.  They love love love this making connections worksheet.  I try to always make the stories silly for them.

Writing is so important in first grade.  This is when they start to put more than two sentences together.  So for this writing prompt, I like to give them a little push with some ideas they can write about in the word bank.  It's always fun to read what they wrote.

We are about to start learning the long vowel sounds, 
so a little practice with the short vowels couldn't hurt.

I like to give this printable on Thursdays before the little ones Reading Test on Friday's.  They are to read a story and then identify the parts of this story with this comprehension sheet.  It gets them thinking about what they just read and get to put it on paper.

I love adding math printables with what we are working on at the moment.  Here are some addition math facts but I have also included subtraction as well.  

Doubles for some reason, always give my little ones a hard time.  I plan on giving them this printable a few times a week so they get their double facts down.

Tens and ones are important around this time.  Anything for a little extra practice.  This is perfect for centers.

There is so much more included in this Staying Busy in January Set.  Please click here to take you there!

This pack includes:
*Warm Me Up {short u sounds}
*ABC Order
*Writing Prompts ( new years, MLK, goals & resolutions)
*Polar Bear Troubles -Making Connections { read, highlight & write }
*past/present tense verbs
*parts of a story

*addition facts
*subtraction facts
* tally marks
*double it up
*roll and cover
*tens and ones
*odds and evens

I'm so excited for the New Year and even more excited
 for this cute little pack for my little ones.

Today is my last day before work. 
 I will make sure I do NOT get out of my pajama unless I have too.  =)  Happy Sunday.

Staying Busy in December!

Ahh!  December is almost here.  My shopping is almost done and I am so relieved that I am not running around looking for gifts.  In between I have been creating my latest cutest pack! 

Staying Busy in December

I have included LAL/Math printables just like my other sets. 
 These are some of the fun sheets included.

These fun math printable can be used in so many ways.  That's why I love them.  I usually use them for centers.  That way I never have to look for things to have them work on.  This is all ready for them.  If not for centers you can do this for morning work, buddy work or even homework.  
Practice makes perfect!

We are currently working on digraphs and irregular plurals for Wilson's and Grammar.  So what better way to practice than with cute worksheets like this.  I love the winter clip art.  The kids have so much fun coloring them after they are done.

For Grammar the little ones are also reviewing inflectional endings and syllables.  This pack has it all to keep challenging your students and keep reviewing past skills until they have mastered them. 

I have also included a little bonus craft.  Have your students create this stocking and make it their own.  You can toss in a writing prompt or have them decorate it with glitter and pictures.  Have them make it their own.  They will love it.

This sweet pack will have you covered for everything in the month of December. All you need to do is print and place wherever you'd like wether it's homework, centers… you name it!  

This pack includes:
*Warm Me Up {short o sounds}

Staying Busy in November!

Ahh.  It's already the middle of October.  With paperwork, testing and deadlines I am missing my favorite month of the year. My next favorite is November, so if I miss a bit of October, I'll manage.   I've been working on my latest product.  A few weeks ago, I posted my Staying Busy in October pack. My students are LOVING it.  It comes in handy for centers, buddy work and even morning work.  If I don't finish the whole pack soon in class, I will start giving some out for homework.   I decided to keep it going and create it for each month.  This is my latest: Staying Busy in November

This is the perfect pack for the month.  It comes with cute printables that your little ones will truly enjoy.  Let's take a look at some of my faves…

We review short vowel sounds around November/December  This would be perfect for centers.  My students love coloring/identifying letters and letters sounds.

We introduce/review patterns, number bonds and skipping at the beginning of the year.  These are also a bit tricky at the beginning.  What a better way to practice/reinforce these skills with some fun printables.  Use these in the morning when they walk through the door and get those minds going for the day!

I love to toss in some extra fun printables to get them excited for the holidays.  My little ones always love to talk about themselves, what they like and what they already know.  So these printables are perfect for just that.  They are able to work on their reading, writing and opinions.  

My Students LOVED doing this last month.  I would put it in their folder every Thursday when they had to read the story of the week. They filled it out according to the story and then told me their favorite part.  They love telling me what they think.  It's great for comprehension and identifying parts of the story. =)  

I seriously love this pack.  It has everything we need to review our skills for the month.  It's fun, exciting and hopefully will get my students excited for the holidays.  Drop by my store  to see what else is in this pack.  Make sure to download the preview for a better look!  With literacy and math printables, this combo has you covered.  

This combo pack includes:
*Feed Me {ending sounds with short e and short i}
*Turkey Sort
*My Favorite's
*Turkey traditions {writing}
*Roll and Fill {short vowel sounds}
*ABC Order
*Thanksgiving Writing
*Turkey Trouble {reading and making connections}
