Product Swap

I’m super excited to be joining in on this product swap. This is my first time. I was paired up with Irene from Learning With Mrs. Leeby. Check it out by clicking on her button.

She has an awesome blog that shares many great ideas to use in your Kindergarten classroom. She even has a cute font that she is sharing with us. (I know I will be sure to snag it.) Anyways, I was able to review her "Spring Has Sprung: Math and Literacy Activities".

There were so many cute activities in this unit that I will definitely be using in my class in next year. I have recently been working as a Resource/Intervention Teacher for Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. I was able to use several of the activities with my Kindergarten students.

The first activity, I used was the "I have...who has..." sight word cards. Since, I many work with small groups. I dealt out the cards to the students and had them play the game like go fish. The students held the cards in their hands and the first person read the card. They would then place the card in the center of the table. The other students had to look at their cards and find the sight word on their card. Once they found it, they read it and then placed it in the center of the table. They really enjoyed playing this game.

Next, we reviewed skip counting with the skip counting puzzles from the set. I placed the cards scrambled up on the table and the students had to place the numbers in order to make the picture. We practiced counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s.

I also, used several of the worksheets that come with this set. I had my group practice identifying CVC words and beginning sounds.

Next, I had my groups practice More and Less Than, as well as, fact families. I practiced the cards on the table with the symbols above the number cards. The students had to place the more than or less than symbol in between the two numbers. We practiced this several times and my students really enjoyed practing math this way.

I did a similar thing with the fact families, except I placed the three number cards and the symbole cards on the table. The students had to make number sentences using the cards.

There are also, worksheets that can be used at a center for assessment.

The Mrs. Leeby's "Spring Has Sprung: Math and Literacy Activities" was very cute and enjoyed by the students I worked with. Be sure to check out her TPT store and blog, as well as, The Magical Product Swap.
