Happy Thursday! I’m back for another round of my Instagram Weekly Recap. If you’re new here, each week I recap what I’ve shared on my Instagram with you all here on the blog ….and most weeks it includes a freebie! Whoohoo!
I know May is just about over, but I realized I never shared these May STEM activities here! These monthly STEM activities are quick prep and include a reflection journal for students to complete throughout the month as they complete each station. You can check out more about them here.
These one-to-one counting mats are perfect for number recognition, number sense, and even informal addition or subtraction. My son loves them! You can see more themed counting mats here. Oh, and if you’re a prek/preschool/kinder teacher, Kaitlyn (The Stay at Home Teacher) is sharing thematic plans over on her blog – all you have to do is subscribe to her blog (here) to receive them!
I always loved completing this fun writing activity at the end of the year. My students would write about what they learned and how they were ready for the next grade level. Some years I would use the “Suiting Up for Summer” option and have them write about what their summer plans. They were PRECIOUS hanging out in the hallway! You can find them here.
