Number Order Color by Code – Janice| Cook Family Resources

My students need a lot of practice finding the missing number in a sequence. This activity is perfect for morning work, sub plans, or fast finishers. The 3D characters can become an eye catching bulletin board that celebrates their hard work while showing what students are currently learning in math. Students love choosing between two characters and I love that they are also getting practice rolling multi-step directions, cutting, folding, and gluing. These fine motor skills are so important that I am eager to incorporate them into the math block whenever possible.

Color Words Tracing Cards – Kaitlyn| The Stay-at-Home Teacher

These color words tracing cards are such an engaging way to combine handwriting practice with academic skills! Students identify the color on the cards, read the color word, then trace! Laminate and use a dry erase marker to make these a fun, write-and-wipe activity!


Rainbow Color Words Mat – Rachael| Literacy with the Littles

Use these hands-on Playdough mats to help little ones learn color words! Students mold dough to fit the correct part of the rainbow mat.


Name Activity – Erin| Littles Love Literacy

This fun Chicka Chicka Boom Boom activity is great for having little ones practice the letters in their name! First, have your little ones find the letters that are in their name and mark them off. They can do this with stickers, a dot marker, crayons, or any little manipulative you have. Next, have them write & decorate the letters in their name and glue them onto the coconut tree! Will there be enough room for them all?!


Alphabet Chart – Jennifer| The Connett Connection

This is an alphabet chart that uses real photographs to show the beginning sounds for each letter.  This chart would be great to hang in a small space or to add to a student’s writing folder.


Color Emergent Reader – Elyse| A is for Apples

This book is a great addition to your classroom or home library! The emergent text is perfect for beginning readers and young learners to help them learn their colors while they practice reading simple text.

Find and Cover Numbers 0-10 2

Find and Cover Numbers 0-10 – Britanni| Brittani Black

These Find and Cover sheets can be printed and placed in a clear view pocket for Math centers, stations, small groups, etc.  Students can use their favorite manipulatives to find and cover the given number, or the sheets can be printed and used as a worksheet.  Students will have fun as they practice finding numbers 0-10.

Name Practice

Name Practice – Kelly| Building Brilliance

One of the most helpful skills for kids to have going into Kinder is writing their name with proper sentence case. Help young learners write their name with this name writing practice sheet! I created this simple name practice sheet for my preschooler to practice writing his name before he starts Kindergarten. With auto-filling text, you can easily insert the names of up to 30 students and print quickly! Print on colored paper and laminate or put into a dry erase pocket to practice every day without wasting paper!

Alphabet Sort Stamps Sweet for Kindergarten

Alphabet Sort – Kristina| Sweet for Kindergarten

I love using a variety of manipulatives to practice skills during centers! At the beginning of the year, we are focusing on letter recognition, so I use these alphabet sorting mats to help my students learn their letters. You can use stamps, magnetic letters, alphabet cookies (I’ve found them at Trader Joe’s), stickers, or foam letters to sort the letters into each category.

Community Search

Community Seek and Find – Lauren| Creating Harmony in Life

This resource has six differentiated seek-and-find pages for different levels of learning to help build vocabulary, comprehension, and listening skills for a community theme. Students will search for community buildings with visual pairings, words, or listening to questions. Use as a small group or one on one tool to introduce or build on community building knowledge for early childhood, early intervention, primary grades, speech therapy, and SPED classrooms.

Animal Momma Baby Match

Animal Mom and Baby Match – Emily| Sandbox Academy

Our preschoolers are going to learn a little more about farm animals as we match mama animals to their babies! Matching is a skill that requires some problem-solving as well as paying attention to detail. Have fun matching farm animal babies to their mamas.
