Here in Mrs. McGuire's class, we have St. Patrick's Day, leprechauns and all things green on our minds. That's why this month's morning work will have a bit of an Irish flavor to them. Luckily, my kinders indulge me and love all the mystery and intrigue that comes along with chasing leprechauns and pondering over their pots o' gold. It's sad to break down the February stations. They were such a hit, but I think that March will be a winner, too. Depending on how long you have been ... VIEW POST
I know that as soon as I hit publish for this post I'm going to start getting emails asking when I'll have my plans done for March, but honestly friends, I'm working on it. It has just been a crazy month with kindergarten assessments, snow days, mass amount of kids absent from class and report cards. I'm hoping things will calm down a bit and that I'll have March done a bit ahead of time. As it is, I still have two or three days left of January morning stations left before I will switch mine ...

So here's a peak at what I have in store ... VIEW POST

So I know that December first is quickly approaching and under 'normal' circumstances, I would have switched out my November Stations this past weekend, but I still have three days of November stations left. I don't want to cut my kinders short . . . So I staged my December Stations this weekend so come Wednesday afternoon, I can quickly switch them out. Plus this way I can give you all a little preview in case you are still looking for some ideas of your own. I hope you find something you ... VIEW POST
I love that this time of year lends itself to so many different themes. Themes in kindergarten really help engage and hook your students when activities can otherwise become mundane, dull and downright boring. Spice up those themes with some colorful Astrobrights papers and you have a recipe for a Thanksgiving sight word activity your students are gonna gobble up. It's a great way for students to practice their sight words, it has the added bonus of working those fine motor muscles ... VIEW POST
