Writing Center Posters FREEBIE and a peek at my week!

Last year I wrote about how I use these posters in my Writing Center.  I change them thematically or by season.  You can read about that post here.
 
I also uploaded them onto Google docs as a freebie....but lately I have been receiving e-mails from some of you sweet friends that they aren't downloading!  I don't know what's going on with Google docs so I decided to go to the best, most reliable place I know to download things...TpT!
So here you are, folks, ALL of the Writing Center posters I made for you to download for FREE!
Just click on the picture to download your copy.
 
 
Here's a peek at what we started on this week.  We read the Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett as our theme this week is.....drumroll....Gingerbread! (hmmmm...what gave that away?)
 
Learning how to count and read 5-frames....we will be learning about 10-frames in the new year.
 
Roll and cover game....my students LOVE these games and insist on them each week!
(I love the fact that they are learning to share, take turns and wait patiently for their turn! HA!)
 
The sight words were mixed up and the kiddies had to unscramble them.  You can't see it in the picture but I had a poster of the words nearby so the students could cross-reference their answers.  I thought this might be a little challenging but they did a great job!
 
Counting out the "gumdrops" on the gingerbread houses and recording our anwers.
 
You can find these activities and more in my Gingerbread Literacy and Math Activities unit on TpT.
 
Phew!  We have a LOT to pack in before Christmas Break.  Our play is in 2 weeks and we are busy rehearsing every day!  AND we are nearly done our Christmas craft....just putting the finishing touches on it!  I promise to post when they are done!
 
If you are getting ready for the new year, I created this new unit, The Mitten.
We do a whole book study on Jan Brett's book.  It's a perfect book for the long winter months!
I included lots of hands-on center activties, an original song written by me, a fun art activity and LOTS more!
AND....it's one SALE this week!!!
You can click on the picture to check it out!
 
 
Hope you have a great week!
