I am Maria from Kinder-Craze and I'm positively thrilled to be the new kid on the freebie block. That's right... I'm the newest contributor to Freebielicous!
I'm a Half Day Kindergarten teacher from Michigan, with experience in full day K, as well as First Grade. I am OBSESSED with all thing girly: including glitter, polka dots, bright colors, and painted nails. I also love my workspace to be well-organized.
I teach in a Catholic school, which gives me a unique opportunity to create and share Religion projects and ideas with other teachers in Christian schools. ALL of my Religion products are free, because I know how broke private school teachers are.
With Easter around the corner, I have two fun freebies to share with you (one for my fellow Christian teachers, and another for EVERYONE!)
If you're anything like me, you have an Easter treat ready to share with your students, but it is not decorated or wrapped in any fun or creative way. These Easter Treat Labels were formatted to print on Avery 5163 labels so you can simply print, peel, and stick to your class treats. Voilà! Let the gift giving begin!
For Christian Teachers...
I created this Interactive Sight Word Reader "Signs of New Life from the Lord" especially for the Easter season. If you teach in a classroom that allows you to share the Good News, you will LOVE this cut and paste reader!
I can't wait to share more great freebies with you!
Anybody needing some fact family fun? Boy I know I sure did! We've been working on the concept of family families and the interconnectedness of addition and subtraction for a couple weeks now. But it's an uber-difficult concept for little ones ...... So, I knew my kiddos needed some extra practice with this activity.
I made this cute Easter-themed family family math center. I hope it motivates your kiddos to want to work on fact families like it has mine. I hope you love it!! Pop over to my blog to grab this freebie!
Can you believe it's almost Easter? Not only is it early this year, but all of the snow outside my window right now just makes it not seem possible! We had a snow day today, but when we return to school tomorrow, I will be sending a plastic egg home with each of my students along with this letter.
Each student will put an item in their egg and write three clues to tell what is in their egg.
Since we are home today on a snow day, I did this activity with my 3 and 5 year old. They loved it!
Swing on into MMMB to grab the free anchor chart and method for your students to start writing with pizazz TODAY! You will also be able to read an example of writing from an average student that was written after our third lesson on poppin' poppin' words in our writing! I am still floored that it came from a 5 year old, but it shows the possibility of possibilities if we just provide them with the right inspiration and tools!
With less than 2 weeks until Spring Break we sure are feeling the rowdyness! I'm pretty sure it's spring fever!
Have you had your Spring Break yet?? If not, you might be feeling like me!
At any rate, I blogged about my Behavior Bingo and I wanted to share it with you! For it to work, I usually choose one behavior that I find my students are having a tough time with and let them know that I'm looking for it.
My kiddos are having a super hard time transitioning quietly this time of year. I'm pretty sure I'm running a circus ;)
We need several reminds to transition quietly and quickly, so now we are going to be rewarded for doing it correctly. Head on over to my blog to see how it works!
This is a simple activity that can be used in a center or sent home for extra practice. Students will roll a die. Then, they will find the word with the matching number. Finally, the students will say and color the sight word.
