Chevron Number Posters, Sight Word Gumballs, and a Giveaway!!

Well today is my second official day of summer and I am LOVING it already! I have been super busy, but have definitely enjoyed having TIME to do things.

I am super excited to be headed back to KINDERGARTEN (EEEKKK!!!) and I am busy working on things so that I don’t feel super stressed at the beginning of the year (Yeah right!  It always happens anyway!).

When I was packing up and moving my classroom I went through my tubs of decorations.  I realized my number posters are pretty old and so I set off to create new ones.

I made two different styles.  One with a chevron background and one with chevron numbers! I can’t decide which to print for my classroom!!! 

Now on to the Sight Word Gum Balls.  Remember my Sight Word Superheroes? My kids absolutely worked their little tails off to earn them! I decided I definitely needed something like that for my new Kindergarten friends.  Thus, Sight Word Gum Balls was born!!

(excuse the carpet, but I didn’t know what else to set them against…)

 Sight words cards for each 6 weeks.  Printed, cut, laminated, and on a ring ready to go! 

  Cards printed and cut for a data wall.  We will create a pictograph.

Student data folders.  Cover for the folder and pages for each six week sight words.

I haven’t put together my teacher binder, but I have all of the pieces ready to go! 

You can check it out in my TpT store {HERE}!

One last thing…a giveaway! A super great blogger, Mrs. Bainbridge, is celebrating her 2 year Blog-a-Versary! I am joining her to help celebrate!! Hop on over!! She is literally giving away 100 things!!!
