Label It! ABC and Beginning Sounds (with a freebie!)

You know I love labeling, I mean there are 21 different 'Label It!' Packs in my shop!  With Kindergarten students this year, I needed to create something that was more appropriate for the students I have who aren't quite ready for 'whole word' labeling projects.  This pack is what I came up with to help them label beginning sounds/letter names.  
There are color and B&W pages of each set.  I also included two progressions, one in the order of the alphabet and the other in one that matches closer to the progression of Harcourt and other reading series for letters.  These are perfect to use in a station...  Stick them in a plastic sleeve or laminate them and let kids use dry erase markers to label away!  (or use the B&W pages for individual use)

There are 38 Label It! Mats, a direction page, and a few of graphic organizers thrown in for fun!

Find it here:

Here is a freebie sample from the pack:

Pumpkin Freebies!

Hi everyone!  I feel like I have been running nonstop for the last few weeks.  I haven't had much time for creating new packs or freebies!  I decided that today I would put together some activities for this week's study of pumpkins.  Nothing too fancy, but useful!  Included are some brace maps for whole group and individual use...some labels for your pumpkin crafts, a nonfiction K-1 page, a tree map and a simple writing prompt.
Hope you can use them!
Get them here on TPT

Also, don't forget to check out one of my favorite fall packs from last season:

Turn and Talk Partners

Something most teachers do is turn and talk partners while at the carpet reading a book.  I decided to finally take the plunge and discuss the way to have  a turn and talk partner with my Kinders.  It is important for all my kids to talk (especially my EL kiddos), even when they aren't comfortable sharing something out to the whole class, they can always share with their partner.  Of course I pose questions to guide the 'talking'.  I wasn't sure if they would understand what I wanted them to do....but as usual, I underestimated them!  They did a great job.  Very simple trial here...we read Is Your Mama A Llama and discussed our favorite parts and favorite animals from the story.
 talking, talking, talking...but still on task!!

Here is a little response page to extend your turn and talk time (if it ever lends to it =)

See and Stamp Jumbo Stamps Giveaway and Freebie!!

A while back I shared a giveaway for Hot Dots and spoke about how they helped me get ready in no time at all for Kindergarten stations.  Well, I have an addition to my writing station to share with you tonight!

See and Stamp Jumbo Stamps have been a lifesaver!  They are great because the kids can see through them as they stamp...and they are large for tiny fingers.  
My Kinders are loving the writing station!
Educational Insights has been kind enough to let me review a set AND give one set of stamps away to my readers!!
The winner of the giveaway will get a set of
See and Stamp Jumbo Stamps!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Oh, and here is the link to a Stamping freebie I shared a while back which is PERFECT to use with these stamps! Get it here!
