Getting ready for Back To School? Freebielicious can help!

I know you must be thinking...what in the world?  This girl just started her summer vacation!
Yes, that's true but I'm always thinking about Back to School...and planning and prepping away this summer!

Last year was a HUGE year for me...
- I moved into a brand new (and gigantic!) classroom
- We started the new Full Day Kindergarten Play-Based/Inquiry-Based program (which, by the way, I am loving!)
- I revamped the way my room looks so that it's much more natural looking

This year I plan on continuing to bring more of nature inside my room, adding plants, branches and anything else "outdoorsy" I can find this summer!
 
One favourite activity in my classroom is the Write the Room Centre.

For the Write the Room Literacy Centre, the students use clipboards (with a pencil attached to it with yarn for easy access) and choose a worksheet.  I have a variety of worksheets in each pack to differentiate between the students in my classroom and also so that a student can do this centre more than once during the week.
All of the theme-based words are printed on large graphics which makes them a little easier to identify around the room.  I tape them everywhere - on the cubbies, doors, walls, cupboards, behind chairs...everywhere!  And the students have to go on a "hunt" to find these words and record them.
Some worksheets are as easy as just recording the words you find.
Other worksheets as to write words according to syllables, label a picture, find the matching word to each picture, etc.
My students can't get enough of this!
And it's super easy to prep - just cut the pictures out, laminate and tape around the room!
I have so many themes to choose from that you can do one theme per week!

  1. I love the idea of bringing nature into the classroom! That reading area looks so comfy...I don't think I could leave it! I'd love to see more pics of what you've done!
