Teachers Pay Teachers Flash Sale!!!

HOLY BATMAN! 


Head on over to TPT and join the party!!


"Go Away, Big Green Monster!" FREEBIE

Do you follow me on Instagram? I loooveee Instagram! Just snap & share, easy peasy!


I recently shared these pictures on my IG page and I received a lot of interest in them, so I wanted to share with you all here too. 


We read the book, "Go Away, Big Green Monster!" by Ed Emberley. I love his books! The simple, predictable texts are just what my little ones need.

 

You can purchase a copy here. We also integrated technology and watched this clip. The kids loved it!


The printable sheets I used to make the monster are from kizclub.com. There are a whole bunch of awesome things on there, so if you have time take a look around. Here is the direct link to the printables.

Finally, I made this little prompt to go along with it. Just click to download.


I hope this is something you can use in your classroom!

Color it! Beginning Sounds Printable Pack Giveaway

I've finally posted my Color It! Beginning Sounds Pack. I apologize for the delay. I was under the weather for the past three days and I still have a lingering cough. Nyquil has been my bff lately, I just hate how it leaves me feeling super groggy when I wake up.

Anyhow, here's a closer look at the pack, and don't forget you can grab the "letter Aa" sheet I gave as a freebie in this post. I created this packet to help my kids who are still struggling with beginning sounds. I plan to send them home as homework or put them in my early finishers tub.

Leave your email below for a chance to win yourself a set!

Attention Grabbers in the Classroom

Hiya there peeps

It's Shuna from Pocket Full of Kinders

I am so happy that Mrs. M allowed me to take over her spot today! 

How do you get your student's attention?

Focusing student's attention is essential to classroom management. 

When students are focused they do much better and so do you. 

Have you ever tried to give directions and 20 little busy bodies are moving, talking and make distracting noises?

What do you as a teacher do when this happens

Shush them?

Flick the lights?

or do you go with the dramatic and throw yourself on the floor and beg for everyone to close their trap?

I have done all the above :)

Don't judge! 

Anyhoo

I started to use attention grabbers in my class and OH MY WORD

the kiddos love them and they are effective!

I use them during transition times to make sure that everyone is on the same page and focused before we begin a task

I use the attention grabbers as well as a few other transition tips with my littles

You can pick up the Attention Grabbers Freebie HERE as well as check out some awesome tips to manage your classroom.
