Stamps! We Love STAMPS!

Having a kindergarten stamping station has always been a fun treat for my students.

I made my first stamping unit in October of 2011!  WOW!  It has undergone a few revisions over the years, but we still love it.

 The students can stamp CVC words.
 The students can stamp sight words (this page is editable so you can add your own words.)
 This is from my Save My Ink Series!

I have always left my stamps in the containers they came in, but someone shared a photo on my Facebook page and it was brilliant!  I couldn't find that photo, but this was essentially how she stored her stamps.  (If you left the photo on my FB page, will you let me know?  So sorry)

Pretty. Darn. Cool.

I have not found this specific bin, but you can see if this one  might work.

In June, I made my first set of monthly stamping units.  These are thematic and FUN!

You can pick up the December Stamp it! Station as part of this week's deal of the week!

or you can see the growing bundle HERE.  January's unit will be added by the end of this month.

Happy Monday!

Thanksgiving Week Lesson Plans: Peek at my week

Thanksgiving week is historically a short school week. (Raise your hand if you are grateful).   We will have a week in pictorial review vs my typical Peek at my Week.

We have always enjoyed these turkey glyphs.

 And these WANTED (turkey in disguise) papers.  This turkey is disguised as a present!

I love the book Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano and my class does too!
 Here are some activities to do with this fun book!

These pictures were sent to me by a teacher in Arizona who uses our Guiding Readers units.  Can I just say that the activity looks good... but her HAIR!  How cute it that braid?
These students are retelling the story!

Students practiced making predictions.

 Here are the student versions of retelling the story.

 Students also activated their schema and they built this graphic organizer.

 Then students responded individually.

 I hope you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving week!
