Daily 5 / Centers Word Work Mats

Hi fellow bloggers and followers!

I've decided that I am going to do The Daily 5 this year in my first grade class. I am so excited! At the beginning of the year we review the alphabet and the Fountas and Pinnell 25 high-frequency kindergarten words. So for word work I made up some mats that can be used with Play-Doh, clay, Wikki-Stiks or whatever you want to use.

Here is a preview:




Check out this item in my TpT store. It's only $1.75 Oh ya!

Back to School Freebie

Hi! I went out and purchased these two (very inexpensive) books to use on the first and last days of school. I am going to use them as a writing assessment at the beginning and end of the year to show growth, and they will also make a great keepsake to send home!



I am using these worksheet, feel free to use them as well.



For some reason my picture link won't work, I'll have to look into that. For now you can copy and paste this link:
