Classroom Freebies: Infer Like a Pro!


I love teaching kids to infer, but it is a difficult skill to grasp. I have found that using pictures  really helps them 
'get the picture'!
 (get it? hee hee hee)

If you would like a short preview of how I teach inference in my classroom, just click {here} to grab a preview pack. If you would like a more detailed description and my kids in action, then just click to head on over to the {Rockin' Teacher Materials blog}.

Enjoy!

Rockin' Teacher Materials: A Trip Down Kindergarten Lane & a Freebie!

Rockin' Teacher Materials: A Trip Down Kindergarten Lane & a Freebie!A long time ago, I taught kindergarten and I always had a full length mirror at my cut and paste station so the kids could look at themselves as they created their paper people. You would be amazed at how quickly the paper people went from 'heads with arms and legs' to 'heads, necks, bodies with arms and legs', and the list goes on.
Stop by to see more!

Recently, I was talking with a friend of mine who still teaches the little ones and she asked me to come up with a rhyming activity sometime. I had so much fun coming up with this! I just love the clip art that is available now too!

If you would like to check out a close up of the pack and get a free rhyming worksheet, just click {here}.

Classroom Freebies: Parents Love Data Binders...You Will Too!

Parents totally love the feedback that they get from our data binders that go home each week. The kids love seeing their scores each week too so they can graph their progress  each week.

It's awesome to see the growth in the kids throughout the year too. When I needed to pull some data for my growth reports, it was so easy because everything is in one place. Head on over to see how I'm using these binders in my room and get a {free pack} to get started!
