Throwback Thursday Linky

Hey yall!  I am joining in on The First Grade Parade's Throwback Thursday Linky.  

At the beginning of every year we spend a week doing Chicka Chicka Boom Boom activities.  Here is a post from 2 years ago on some the things we did.  :)

 This week we finished up introducing all of the letters and what better way to celebrate than  Chicka Chicka Boom Boom week!  

We practiced making AB patterns.

We practiced matching colors and reading color words.
We graphed our favorite book 
"Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" or "Chicka Chicka 123".
We have a pocketchart center every week.
Here is a picture from this week.
You can find these "OH SO CUTE" center activities
 in Julie Lee's TPT store.  If you have not already 
purchased her unit you are SO missing out!  :) 
This is an activity that Mrs. Lee's student teacher 
Mrs. Wood came up with.  She is SO creative  
and will make an AWESOME teacher!  :)
Chicka Chicka Shape Tree
Here we are with Ms. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.  :)
We watched this video this morning on BSLK TV.

Line Up Vinyl Dots Set {1-20} Hot Colors

OK...So by popular request I have decided to add vinyl line up dots to my TPT store (I know a lot of you make your own but I still get tons of request from people asking if I could do it for them because they do not have the resources available).  I have posted on this FABULOUS creation before (click HERE if you missed it).  Please remember these will be created just for you so please allow 1 week for order processing and then 1-2 weeks for shipping (so it could take up to 3 weeks for you to receive your order).
These are pictures from the 
beginning of last school year.  :)

 These are pictures from the END of the year.  (YAY...I finally remembered to take pictures)  After 180 days of 5 & 6 years olds running around on them they still look fantastic!  :)

Nursery Rhyme Back to School Fun & AWESOME FABRIC!

Do you do a nursery rhyme unit at the beginning of the year?  Me...well I touch on them but I have never devoted a whole unit to them but when I saw this OH SO CUTE clipart from DJ Inkers I decided why not!  So here is the finished product.  I love the way it turned out and I think it will work well during my first few weeks of school.  
On another note...I have had the same 2 bulletin boards for the last 6 years.  AHHH!!!  I know.  I mean they look great but it was time for something new so I went to Hobby Lobby and found THESE AWESOME FABRICS!!!!  
Can you see the excitement?!?!  I am super pumped to get them put together.  Check back later in the summer to see the finished product.  :)

Counting and Cardinality

This past year (like many others I am sure) our district started focusing on the Common Core Math Standards with a new math program GO MATH.  Like anything new, it took some getting use to and then it was like "Hey, this is GREAT!".  I can't tell you how exciting it was to see my students doing so well in math.  It was awesome, but as you know with any change you must "change" the activities you use and the way you teach...which lead to some MAJOR math center revamping!  So, here is my latest pack Counting & Cardinality-Games & Activities for Common Core Math  :) 
I have already got this set printed and ready to go and I can't wait to use it.  Just for my Bloggy Friends I have this pack on sale for 50% off until Tuesday.  Hope you all are enjoying your summer and if you are still in school I hope your summer begins SOON!  :)
