School Supplies and a Discount!

Look what I got in the mail!!  Don't you just love to get fun stuff for your classroom?  I got these wonderful items from MPM School Supplies.

MPM School Supplies site is easy to navigate and they have LOTS of items to choose from!  I was needing some new vowel posters as we are working really hard right now on getting those sounds solid and sure.  

I had also been looking for a group of poems that I could use with my kindergarten or first grade small groups.  I like to use poems to increase their memory, finding rhyming words, work on syllables, look for sight words, and connect words to sounds on our blends chart.

finding words in poem to connect with beginning blends and digraphs

My first graders are working really hard on hearing their blends and digraphs and connecting them to the correct letters.  I like to call out a word from a poem or book they have been reading (the poem or book would be not be out so they are relying on auditory and not visual cues) and they find a picture from the blends/digraphs chart to connect it to.  

For example, I would call out clouds.  The students would use their blends/digraphs chart and find the picture- clown- that begins the same way clouds does.

  3. You know me, Tammy, I like to use even the free stuff to maximize it usefulness with my students. :)

  4. Barbara, I like the flip chart. I like that it is on a stand where I can place it on a table so the students can see it. I will use it for fluency, rhymes, and picking out sight words.
