Teach Me! Adjectives



So this is a tough day for me.  This is my last Sunday before my hubby and I go back to work.  Where did the summer go?  Why did it go by so fast?  Will I have a sweet little class this year?  All these questions are running through my head and I am not happy about summer being over.  I get like this every year around this time, but all those feelings go away on the first day of school when I see those cute little faces.  


I recently posted about my Teach Me Compounds set.  I really think my little ones will enjoy it, especially with all the fun activities and cut & paste games.  I decided to come up with another set.




My students love adjectives.  They like to be silly every year and come up with very very funny adjectives to make sentences: A skinny pig smells like black flowers.  Things like that.  It's fun for them to be silly and understand the concept in their own funny ways.  


This pack has a whole lot of fun activities and printables for your little ones to do and enjoy.
Like many of my packs, this can be done independently, buddy work, centers, homework & even for early finishers.  It's the perfect way to reinforce those skills your students might struggle with.


I always see product previews look great.  I can never make mine look like that.  So this was my best shot. LOL



My students love these making connections printables.  It works on so many skills and they have a blast while doing it.  Here they will be reading, highlighting, finding adjectives and then writing.  These stories are cute and very kid friendly. 




I am loving this cute activity.  Students will read the sentence and color the picture according to the color adjectives given.  Then they have to create their own using number adjectives at the bottom.  Love it. 




I don't know about you, but my students love to sort. These activities work on that and so much more. 






Activities like this make learning so much fun.  I know my sweeties will enjoy these printables because it involves coloring.  They will do anything with coloring. =) 

Why wait?  Grab this set now and be prepared for adjectives.  Your class will enjoy all the fun printables and variety.

Teach Me! Compounds





Phew!  Finished just in time.  I have been working on this for quite a bit and so happy with the way it turned out.  Every year when it's time to learn compound words, I do the same thing every year.  I see that I need to go over compounds and think, "Oh this is easy. My students will SO get this."  WRONG!  I teach it over and over again and they are so confused.  They come up with words like sunback  or doorfoot after hearing examples such sunglasses or football.  They really just say anything that comes to mind.  So I made this oh so cute set that could help and assist them in mastering the skill.  










The printables here are so unique and different than some of my other sets.  I had to really think about what different activities my students would really enjoy and would help them understand what compound words are.  




These jam packed worksheets can be used for so many different things: homework, buddy work, centers, independent work, early finishers and ever assessments.  Any way would work.  Practice here is key and there are so many different printables.  Your students will not get bored!









These handouts are so fun.  I love that the kids will be working on a bunch of other skills aside from just compound words.  They will also be working on their reading, writing and sorting skills.  






I did have to include some of my students favorite worksheets.  These I know they will love and simple enough for them to do on their own from seeing the same kind of worksheets from other packs of mine.

This pack includes:
*posters/list of examples for classroom
*bookmarks 
*name that compound
*abc order using compound words
*making connections using compound words
*sorting compound words
*spin that compound word
*whats your favorite?
*compound word mix up
*word search
*compound word buddies
*find and highlight 
*cut and paste compound words
*cloudy compounds
*riddle me this
*roll that compound word
*mix and match compound words


and more!

Punctuation Posters Fun!


Happy Sunday!  I leave in less than a week to Vegas with my hubby, so I wanted to make sure I posted about my latest projects and ideas.


As school approaches, I try to create things I know my little ones will enjoy.  I created Parts of Speech Posters pack a few weeks back.  I tried to keep thinking of what else I think my kiddies could benefit from.  So I came up with this…



I tried to keep the same idea.  Really cute printables, bright posters and great guides for your little ones to refer to when struggling.  


The posters are nice and bright to catch your student's eyes.  You can place them around the class and have your students refer to them when needing some reminder or ideas.  The posters also come with a list of examples for each punctuation, which I think my students would really appreciate. 




The printables can be used for centers, buddy work, early finishers or homework.  I feel with the easy and simple directions, they could do this on their own or with a buddy.



I love the cut and paste printables.  It's always one of my student's favorite activities.  I tried to include that in this pack.  I also like incorporating writing with my printables.  This way my students are practicing their handwriting at the same time. 







Sorting is important for my students.  It lets me know they are mastering what they are learning and can show me that through sorting.  It doesn't hurt that it's fun to complete either. =)



Some more of my favorites are:



Just love that the printables are working so many areas: reading, writing, drawing and the punctuation.  They don't know it but their little minds are learning so much at once!




This is a quick overview of what's inside this awesome pack

parts in this pack are statements, questions, exclamations,contractions, commas, apostrophe's,colon, quotation marks, semi colon and parenthesis

Back to School Essentials - Brights & Neons!

This summer is flying by and I have been falling behind on blogging.  I have been doing a lot to keep up with organization in my room.  I want to make sure this school year is neat, organized and full of color!  I love a bright classroom and I am trying to put together somethings to make sure that happens.

I just ordered these very cute book bins from Really Good Stuff.  The colors fit perfectly with my class which is usually filled with bright neons.

At just $13, I think it's a pretty sweet deal.  




I also picked up paper baskets for my centers.  



Last year, I used these for center bins and my work for the week.  I labeled each basket Mon-Fri and had the work all set for the students for each day.  I need to find a place for them in my class this year.  I am sure I will come up with something.



To keep going with the theme of brights, I picked up these neon pencils at Walmart.  They were a bit expensive on my taste, but I couldn't resist.  I will use them as an incentive for those well behaved kiddos!



When I finished all my shopping, I kept working. Haven't worked as hard all summer.  I printed out my  posters from my Part of Speech set and started laminating right away.




I love the way they turned out, bright and very eye catching.  My little ones will hopefully be using these posters as references and guides. 


What's in your shopping cart?

Parts of Speech {posters and printables}


Sooooo, I am back from a long break.  This year took everything out of me and I'm well …super happy the year is finally over.  I can pull myself together and keep it moving!  I have been working on this cute packet for a while  but finally got a chance to finish it this week.  I am so happy I did because I love it.  It's full of bright neons, my favorite, and cute printables to go with it.  

Every year, I  teach my little ones the different parts of speech.  However, I do not have great visuals to get their attention. I don't even have printables that are hands on or even exciting for them to complete.  So I came up with this cute pack!





This set has all you need to introduce/review the parts of speech skills to your little babies.  The bright posters will grab their attention while the printables will keep them going and learning. 







Each poster comes with it's own lists of examples.  This way the students have something to reference too when learning about each part of speech.


I have added some cute and fun printables for your little ones and my littles ones to enjoy!





It is loaded with fun learning for your kiddies.  Toss the printables in a center, homework or for those quick finishers.  




I even added a cheat sheet for my students to put in their folders and use as a reference.

The parts of speech include: nouns, verbs, adverbs, pronouns, adjectives, 
articles, prepositions, interjections and conjunctions.


Your little ones will love all these printables. They are very hands on and fun to work on.

*parts of speech posters in bright neon colors
