First things first

From the beginning we start working on our names.  I made this cut and paste page for them to draw themselves, then cut and paste the letters in order before writing their name.  It gives me a chance to see where they are with fine motor skills and so much more.

We use tiles and letter cubes to make our names.  It gives them an introduction to some of the manipulatives they will be using throughout the year and their proper use.

Since everyone loves to stamp we do some simple sheets to see what they know.  

Math is as much fun as center time. We introduce the simplest first to give them a sense of independence while working.  Routines and procedures are constantly being reinforced so everyone knows what's expected of them.

  1. I love that you include so many pictures. It helps me to see how things go in your class. I'm in the process of typing an email to you about how to google docs. I hope it helps.
