Guest Blogger and Friend HoJo -- with FREEBIES!

Hey all! It's Heather - better known as HoJo - from HoJo's Teaching Adventures. Michelle has been a bit preoccupied lately with all things school (you can relate to that, right?) so I decided to step in for her.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, but I want to share some amazing freebies with you! I currently have 58 products for Kindergarten in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, and 19 of them are FREE! I'm going to highlight a few of my favorites below. =)

Just click on any of the pictures below to get your free copy directly from TpT!

This product is one I created so student recognize a variety of fonts. It's perfect for centers, independent worksheets, and even for homeschooling parents!

This product with ask your Kindergarten students to differentiate between short and long A. They will cut the pictures apart and glue them into the correct column. This was a favorite of my Kindergarten students. {Heck - anything involving glue was!}

This activity was one my students used all year in centers. They had to cut and paste {I told you they loved glue!} the letters into the correct circles. Each circle ends up with the same amount of letters, so they're really easy for students to understand and to grade!

This is one of my Magic Square puzzles. Students match the correct short A word to the picture. The words around the outside are other short A words, but there are no pictures to match. These are great for gifted students or those who are ready for more of a challenge. 

If your students struggle with estimation, this is the packet for you! These six pictures allow you to have your students practice estimating the area or perimeter of each shape. They print great in color so you can laminate them and use them in centers for several weeks!

And finally here's another Magic Square product. This one has students match the lowercase letters with their uppercase partners. Again these are particularly good for your higher students.

There you have it folks! A few of my favorite freebies all located in one place! I'd love to hear what you think of them either below in the comments below in the feedback section on TpT.

Take care!

100th Day has come and gone!

Our 100th day was last week.

We sorted beads (10 groups of 10 of different colors) and made 100 day necklaces.

We made 100 day masks and played "Race to 100" game.

We worked in our Zero the Hero books and he brought us a 100 day treat.

We also went to the computer lab and created 100 day art using a game found at ABCya.

We had a few more activities planned but ended up having a 2 hour late start because of the weather (which I can't complain about at all. . .who wouldn't love to sleep in 2 extra hours!!)
