WINNER WEDNESDAY: It's a Zoo Around Here


Winner, Winner- Chicken Dinner!
We are linking back up with A Dab of Glue Will Do for another Winner Wednesday!!!!!
This month, we are giving away our Zoo unit: It's a Zoo Around Here.
This is not really a "beginning of the year" pack.  But, it is a great resource to keep in your back pocket until second semester when your Kinders have a good grasp on all letters and sounds.
This unit is packed with activities to reinforce blending CVC words, reading using blends and digraphs, place value, addition, subtraction, and LOTS of sight words! 
Our kiddos love to "Roll and Read."  This is such great practice for fluently blending CVC words.
 There are a variety of different activities to practice High Frequency Words. With these cards, the opportunities for center ideas are endless!  We love the dollar store trays, and our kids do, too!  So building sight words seemed like a no brainer to us!
 Kids never seem to tire of magnifying glasses! This is a year long favorite for our classes.  Here, students pull an animal card and magnify the sight word!
I'm not Lion... our kids LOVED this center!  There is something about a missing letter that makes the challenge fun.  They feel so successful at "spelling" CVC words.

Place value is something we never thought our Kinders would be able to master.  Boy, were we wrong!  They ate it up!  They amazed us with how quickly they began to understand the concept of composing and decomposing double digit numbers.


Enter below to win It's a Zoo Around Here!

This contest runs for TODAY only! Winner will be announced tomorrow!

Congrats, Becka Lisa!  We've emailed you the unit!  Thank you to everyone who entered!

    1. Megan, that is so true! These are the very skills we want our kinders to master before moving to first grade; so you are right about it being good for 1st grade beginning of the year review! We hope you are enjoying your summer break. Have a fun and safe 4th and July holiday!

      Much love,
      Ashley and Brooklynn
