A fun and easy way to review/learn letters, colors and number words! I have included lower case letters, upper case letters, color words and number words to ten!
1. Shuffle the enclosed word cards and place them face down in a pile.
2. Have students take turns taking a card, one at a time. If the student can read the word on the card, then they may keep the card.
3. If the student picks-up a ZOOM! card then they have to put all of their sight words back into the pile.
4. The student with the most sight word cards at the end of the game is the winner!

This song is from Hooked on Phonics on YouTube! It is a cute song for the –ig family! When I study different word families I try to find a craft, song or something to grab their attention and help them remember the word family. There are a couple stories and more songs from Hooked on Phonics. Here is another the kids like….. and for some reason they try to duck when the letters come towards the screen! Funny to watch! Songs like these give me few minutes to prepare materials and makes the classroom more fun! I love it!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

I am always looking for ideas for cute sayings for my bulletin boards! So why not have a party!! Here are a few I found that I think are cute!
- Kindergarten "Jean"ius - I used a pair of Kaden's baby jeans and put the kids names on an overall shaped notepad!
- Taco about a great class! Just found this one! They said they folded yellow circles and added green Easter grass for the lettuce. I think that is too cute!!
- Pencil us in for a great year! I would use pencil shaped names and a big eraser or pencil sharpener!
- Swinging into Kindergarten! I used monkeys for the names and a big 3-D shaped palm tree!

I love Harry Kindergarten songs! What a great way to teach about tattling.... by the end of the year I just about lose my mind on this subject with a few kids! I just had a couple of those this year and I think this would have helped a lot!!! It is hard in Kindergarten to get them to understand the difference between tattling and helping a friend. I am so excited to add this to my list of the beginning of the year! What do you do for tattling? I have used the tattling turtle before or just a plain paper bag they share their tattles. Then I tell them at the end of the day I will listen to them. Very funny to watch the regular visitors there. Have a Happy Day!
