Free Multi-Sensory ABC Book Template

I created this template for students to use to make multi-sensory alphabet books. This file contains a page for each letter that has letter outlines (uppercase and lowercase) that students can add materials to for a tactile experience. Each page has a suggested multi-sensory material to use. For many of them, I’ll have the students use a paintbrush to put glue on the letter and then apply the material given. I also included book page templates that don’t have a material in the sentence, but a blank line so that you can supplement whatever material you’d like. Finally, there is a list of ideas for multi-sensory experiences for each latter of the alphabet.  Click on the picture for the link to the *free* item in my TpT store.

I will use this book template to create multi-sensory ABC books in the resource room for special education and RTI intervention, but it can also be used in the general education curriculum!

I hope you like this and can use it! If you do, please rate me and follow me! I appreciate it SO much!

And I thought I would share a pic of 2 of the 3 loves of my life (husband not included).

End of the Year Activity *Freebie* Updated for 2015!

It’s almost May!  I updated this activity to be used for the end of the 2013-2014 school year. I changed the font on the front cover and I also added a blackline picture of a school that you can use and have students color if you’d like.  Click on the picture for the link to the *free* item in my Teachers pay Teachers store!

I made this little activity for students to reflect on what they learned this school year. I wanted to create an end of the year activity that had a little substance and required students to reflect on the highlights of what they learned throughout the year! Also, I wanted to it be fun. The first page of the document shows an example of the activity. On the second page, students fill in what grade they are in and write their name on the line. Then they can cut out both boxes and glue them on a file folder. On the next five pages, students can fill in something they learned in Reading, Math, Writing and about Making Friends and Attitude! There is space where students can draw a picture as well. Then have students put the sheets in their “file” and you can staple them if you’d like. (Target has really cute file folders in the One Spot!)

Enjoy!  If you like this, please rate me, or follow me!
Thank you!!!

Spring Tree Counting Math Center Activity {Freebie!}

I made this template for students working on counting with one to one correspondence for numbers 1-20. This file includes tree templates for numbers 1-20, a blank tree template just in case, and flowers to use as counting manipulatives. You can use these in several different ways. First, I would print them on card stock, laminate and/or put them in a page protector. Then you could set them all out, (or just the numbers you are focusing on!) and have students put the corresponding number of flowers on the tree, or you could give students one tree at a time, maybe during a small group intervention. It would also make a nice math center activity. It can be used as a practice activity or as an assessment tool. I have students use these plastic flower rings (like the kind that come in cupcakes) on the trees, but I added the flowers so you have some on paper to use. You could also use any kind of little fake floral. In the fall, you could use little apples! I like this activity because it is hands-on and engaging and a cute activity for spring! I hope you like it!  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my store.  It is currently FREE, as my spring gift to you.  Enjoy!

Attitude, Bulletin Boards, Classroom Stuff

March Bulletin Board

I thought I would share my March bulletin board in my classroom.  I made a tree from bulletin board paper a few years ago and laminated it and I use on my bulletin board most of the year!  I just change the leaves, theme and sign to make it work.  For March, I put up my green leaves which I made from a sample book of wallpaper I got for free at Crayons to Computers.  Then I added glitter shamrocks that I found in The One Spot at Target.  I attached the shamrocks with my ladybug push pins for good luck.

The sign says, “Good Luck Is Nice But Hard Work Is Better!” which is so true…  I used a font I made called Ckawesome.  It’s available for free in my store.  Here is the link!

CKFonts {Set 2}

I love bulletin boards but as a teacher and mommy, I don’t have tons of time to make elaborate ones!  The tree is a nice way to spruce up my classroom each month.  My students like to check out the tree and ask me about it.  I hope you like it!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.”

(1 Corinthians 13: 4-7)
