Pigeon Book Buddy

Is anyone else obsesses with Pigeon Books?  They are perfect to read at the beginning of the year.  They are creative, silly, and I love tying them to academic skills! I have a Book Buddy that you can use with any Pigeon book!  Get the resource HERE.


First up we have a cute craft that the students can cut and glue together.  This is a great way to assess their fine motor skills, and it makes a really cute bulletin board to hang!


I always start the year with practicing colors, it is a great way to see their prior knowledge and it gives you an idea of how much in depth you need to go as far as teaching colors.  The students pick a card and color a pigeon that same color.




In kindergarten, there are constant one-on-one assessments that you have to give the students.  And there is that constant question.... what do the rest of the students do while I am assessing ONE KID AT A TIME!!?!?

I like to use this pigeon sound hunt as a mini-assessment to see if the students know their sounds.  You could use any of these printables as an informal assessment as you are working with students one-on-one.





Centers learning games can be used in small groups, partners, or one on one.  Take a look at the different center games.  The students pick a card, and then solve the problem on their own printable.
