Five for Friday (with freebies)

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cookie-Excavation-Freebie-1180251Every year, we study dinosaurs and my kinders LOVE learning how to be a paleontologist.  This resource is free in my TpT store.

This week we studied dinosaurs.  We read many nonfiction books, but one of our favorite stories was the fictional story, Dinosaurs Love Underpants.  I did not have any clipart of underpants, so I tried my hand at clipart.  It is free on TpT.  Just click the picture below.
If you are interested in the unit, Dinosaurs Love Underpants, it is available in my TpT store.

This week we our curriculum map math standards involved measuring.  We measured everything!!  My kinders mostly enjoyed walking throughout the room measuring with either cubes, toothpicks, pencils, or paper.  They had a choice what to measure with.  Then they recorded their answers on the recording sheet.  It is free below.  Just click here or on the picture.

I decided that I needed more hands-on literacy stations.  I wanted to use my sand table, so I added seashells with sight words.  The kids love it!
 Karen Jones has an EXCELLENT math resource on Teachers Pay Teachers.  It is called The Ultimate Math Bundle.  The kiddos in the picture above are using the printable from The Ultimate Math Bundle.  However, instead of the snakes, the kiddos are using Smarties and a paper plate.  The paper plate is cute in half.  Students put the number of candies on each half then push the paper plate together to see "how many in all".
