1 Red Umbrella

Inspired by the puddles and rain boots that are part of my everyday now, I created a rainy-day inspired set of math activities! 

Targeted for preschool and kindergarten, it covers: patterning, sorting, counting,  picture addition and fine motor skill practise. It also includes my 1 Red Umbrella poem, teacher's guide and response sheet!

The poem itself is a freebie!

St. Patrick's Day ideas...

(click on the images for their source)

How cute is this? A nice addition to their scrapbooks & I love the use of different textures on a more traditional hand print.

These would make super cute pins for each student to wear on St. Patrick's Day!

With a green stamp pad handy, these would make cute card covers to send home.

Easy, healthy and festive snacks? :)

Where's Teddy? (Freebie!)

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, I've created a festive version of my student's favourite game!

Where's Teddy? allows students to practise number recognition, more/ less and number sequence both as a class or in small self-led groups.

ps. I'm back! The 1st-year-in-Kindergarten-flu hit me quite hard with weeks and weeks of school-food-sleep being my routine. Spring Break is giving me a welcome rest and an opportunity to get back into the teacher blogging community!

Snowy Inspiration

Snow, snow, snow. Not much in town, but we spent our weekend up in the mountains and all day long our hair and eyelashes and scarves were dusted in snow. So lovely! Here are a few items that inspire me today. (Please click on image for their source).

TED Talks: A little 2012 Inspiration

TED, for those like me a few months back who had never heard of it, is a wonderful online database of speakers sharing.. ideas, innovations, thoughts, dreams and insights.

One favorite of mine is linked up below (click on the image). The title, "schools kill creativity," is a little hostile. The talk, however, is more of a call to prioritize the arts, free expression and a re-examination of what's important to learn. Certainly something to think about over my morning cereal!
