Kindergarten Star News

This is an optional cover I made for my Kindergarten Star News literacy. Students told a "story" each morning (usually the Star Student chosen for the math calendar). After they finished telling me their story, I underlined three words in red for them to illustrate at the top. I used extra large lined illustrating paper. I created the covers using this page and names of my students for that year. I have 9 of them and I read them to my high-schoolers! They love it! One day I plan to publish them all into a book ;) Check it out at Teachers Pay Teachers for FREE! Click the title link... I'll post pictures of my books later this week.

Calendar Meeting Board

This was our calendar meeting board. The Star Student that I chose each day helped with the calendar. They put the number on the calendar, wrote the number for the day and helped with the days of the week and months of the year by using the pointer. I had a number line that I made from individual cut-outs that were laminated with the numbers 1 through 170. The number line ran above the room all the way around. I used individual stick-on clips to clip them. For each set of ten, I used a different type of cut-out. For example, I started with 10 teddy bears, then 10 apples, and so on, that way they could see sets of ten and count by tens by looking at the number line. The number chart I used was also color-coded by two's, five's and ten's. It takes a lot of time to make the number line but once you have it created, it can be used over and over. Share this idea if you like it! :) Cool Teach

Santa's House

100 Day!!!

These are two different classes in two different years. We dressed like we were 100 years old. Most of the activities that I took pictures of were used in our Kindergarten Yearbook. I made one for every class I taught at Redeemer and St. Andrews elementary schools.


These were my art, creative play, science, reading and listening centers.

This was our banner that we used. These are some of the artwork the kids did for the annual art show. This was 1998-1999 school year.
