Talent Show

Here is our talent in the talent show! Enjoy!!The video will flip in a few seconds to make the picture go in the correct direction. We had so much fun at our talent show! We ended the show with a whole school flash mob in honor or our retiring principal/assistant superintendent. We started as a student council dance, then went to teachers, then to the whole school and ended with a slide show. It was awesome!! Checked flash mob off my bucket list! :) Always a fun time! I'm always amazed at the talents of the students also - singing, yo-yoing, gymnastics, walking on hands, twirling! They are incredible!

Summer Bridge Activities

The Summer Bridge Activities Workbook is a great resource for parents! It is a great review of the kindergarten skills. What a great help to keep them current and reviewing over the summer. It is divided into 3 sections – they can write a goal, discuss character traits, do science experiments and review all their learning. I think it is a great way for parents to see  what their children are expected to know and learn in school. Carson Dellosa included a skills matrix, reading ideas, and  a summer reading list. I like that the pages have work on them – not overloaded and not too sparse. The pages are colorful too! On the pages is a good variety of math, reading, sight words. There are also bonus activities too. In the back of the book are flashcards for letters, numbers, time, coins, shapes, a certificate and STICKERS! This will be a great resource for children over the summer! . I participate in the Brand Ambassador Program for Carson- Dellosa and I received this product for free to try and review.

Language Arts File Folder Games

Another good product from Carson Dellosa! Center Solutions for the Common Core Language Arts File Folder Games! There are 16 ready to play file folder games. They are bright and colorful –and nicely labeled with the skill. They seem fairly sturdy – will be interested in seeing how long they stay nice at centers. They do recommend laminating.  They will be perfect to use for a guided reading group. Eleven different skills are included in this set. They range from: visual discrimination, rhyming, beginning sounds, to syllables and vocabulary. The games and pieces are even color coded. I heart color coding!  I love that the resource guide includes a checklist of the centers to keep track of who has been introduced to it. The standards and skills list will be useful also as we all get familiar with the common core.  There is also a student activity page for each of the games. So nice to have everything coordinated. This will be a great addition to a classroom. I participate in the Brand Ambassador Program for Carson- Dellosa and I received this product for free to try and review.
