Five things I could not have survived the first week without!

The first week (ok, the first four weeks) of kindergarten are always hectic, crazy, fun, draining and...entertaining.  My group has 2 weeks under their belts now....Zero the Hero will visit us for the first time on Tuesday!  I know there are probably new kindergarten teachers everywhere wondering...what did I get myself into?  =)  It's ok, we all get it, don't panic!  I can promise you they do calm down (a little) they do love you no matter how frazzled you are on the inside and they do LOVE everything you do for them.  With that in mind,  here are 5 things I could not have survived  my first two weeks without:

Rules!  Rules!  Rules!  We go over them every...single...day.  Love Whole Brain Teaching!  If you're interested you can get these cards FREE by clicking the picture. 
Sadly these card were created by me and the original file I created them with was corrupted on my computer...gah!  I've had lots of requests to "modify" for individual use but I can't because the file is kapoot!  =(   This download is safe though!!!  =)

Again a FREE download from Growing Kinders!  It's a great discussion tool and helps kids identify above and below the line behavior.  LOVE!

Candy?  Prizes?  Uh...no....all they want is to be cheered for!  Look how nicely you lined up...hip hip hooray!   Did you see how Susy helped Brian...seal of approval!  Trust  me....it's a high better than tootsie rolls!  And again...FREE from Dr. Jean!

GoNoodle is a must because....they can't sit for longer than ten minutes!  Get them up, move them around, cheer for them and you're good to go for another ten minutes.  Best part....it's FREE (sensing a theme here?)
 
Hope your first few weeks were as....entertaining as mine were!

  2. After extensive research, performing my own inspection of the various facilities. I finally enrolled my child in this Phoenix pre-k. Doing extensive research was important for me.

  3. The owner is a very warm, caring individual who understood the emotions a first time mom would experience when leaving her child with a Phoenix kindergarten facility.

  4. Nice tips for kindergarten’s first five weeks. But the teachers who have no ideas for fun educational activities then http://www.kidsfront.com/cpuzzles/1.spot_heavier.html can help you to the extreme levels. On this website you’ll find various types of educational ideas and resources that your kids love.
