Happy (almost) New Year! I've given up on resolutions. Too much hype, too little follow through. In general, I have a list of things that I'd like to improve upon though! I know we all still have one more week to relax before heading back to our classrooms, but in case you are starting to think ahead a bit...
I have some centers for you! This is my favorite kinder pack so far. It's bigger than the others for a few reasons. (I'll get to that later.)
First of all, there are 4 menus to choose from. Yep, 4! If you've been following me for a while or using these menus, you know that I started with 1st grade menus. 1st grade (and 2nd grade) menus both have the same 4 columns: reading, word work, sentence building, and writing. Kinder has those same categories in April and May (and probably will be for March). But, those would've been too difficult for kinders at the beginning of the year, so I made these categories: letters, word work, writing, and word sounds (syllables, rhymes, etc). Since it's January, I thought for some classes, it might be time to start transitioning over to the new menu. At the same time, I didn't want to make it too challenging. Every class is unique. So I decided to make a menu with different categories so you could choose which was best for your class at this point in the year. That means that this pack has 18 centers total! You could use the extra centers as whole class activities, small group activities, or early finisher activities.
Can you see why this is a new favorite? I hope so:)
