Ice Cream Craft

This ice cream craft is a perfect way to practice writing or counting. The students can work their math skills by placing the numbers in order, or you can select one of the writing prompts and the students can write a reflection.



There are 5 different craft templates included in this resource. For each of the options the students cut and glue the ice cream together! This will make for a perfect bulletin board, memory book, or craft to send home. Each writing template includes primary and elementary lines.


Here are the different craft templates that are included:

1. A counting craft where the students cut and paste the numbers in order 1-5.

2. Back to school reflections- Here are the two phrases to pick from:

-This year I am most excited to...

-My favorite thing about summer was...

3. End of the year reflections-

-My favorite thing about this year was...

4. Summer Reflection:

-This summer I am excited to....

5. Blank template where the students can write their own reflection!



The math craft is a perfect craft to introduce at the beginning of the year to practice fine motor skills, or to use at the end of your study of numbers 1-5. The students cut out all of the pieces and then place them in order!

Peek-A-Boo Summer Letter Hunt

Do you live by the beach? We are close to the ocean, so a beach theme during the summer is a MUST.  You can use this in the classroom or at home! I have been using this with my preschool son and he has been LOVING playing this letter game.  Let me show you how it works..... 


First you set up the letter cards.  You can choose between upper and lowercase letters to display.


Next you don't let your students see, but you hide the little sun cards BEHIND random letters.


I like to pick letters that they are struggling with or need extra practice on!


Next you play the game! The students pick a letter and look to see if there is a sun hiding behind it! After they look, they trace the letter on their recording sheet.  You could have them either say the letter or sound before looking behind the card! This game is super fun and interactive!

May Kindergarten Writing Center

One thing I love about the end of the year in Kindergarten is the students are writing independently! You can see their creative writing coming through, and they feel so proud of themselves (and HELLO, I am proud of them too)!

My Year-Long Kindergarten Writing Center can meet your students needs and it is structured in a way to meet each student where they are at and inch them towards being independent writers. I have a full blog post here that walks you through the entire writing center set up.  I can give you the overview below!


This is the ULTIMATE Kindergarten Writing Center resource. This writing center is designed to be used in the classroom or to send a writing folder home to use for distance learning. Each month comes with 5 themes, for May the themes are:

1. BBQ

2. Garden

3. Pond

4. Zoo

5. Lemonade Stand



You can see above that the theme I am showing you is "zoo". Within each theme there are over 35 worksheets for you to use to meet your students' needs. This resource is designed so no matter where your students are on their journey to becoming independent writers there are multiple skills they can practice at their level.

Here are the skills/resources included for every theme:

1. vocabulary cards

2. vocabulary lists

3. vocabulary sheets

4. folder cover (editable version included)

5. checklists for you to assign weekly work (editable version included)

6. vocabulary sheets (3 versions)

7. labeling sheets (two versions)

8. make a list (3 versions)

9. sentence writing sheets (10 versions)

10. story sequencing (2 versions)

You can either design this as a writing center in your classroom or prepare a folder for the students to take home. I have included posters that are full sheets of paper or mini versions to glue and laminate into the writing folders. These posters include:

-color words

-number words

-alphabet
