Kindergarten Time Capsule

Pin It

For the past several years I've created a time capsule with my kindergarten students.  I write the parents a letter and I ask for a shoe box that will serve as a time capsule.  Parents write a letter to their child and they fill out a survey with their child.  I add pictures that we've used in our classroom, a writing sample and an art project or two.  All of these things go into the capsule along with the "All I Really Need To Know About How To Live and What To Do And How To Be, I Learned in Kindergarten" poem.  I also let students write letters to each other and they put those in the capsule.  A day or two before school lets out we wrap up our time capsules and put on a label that says "Don't Open until my 18th Birthday".  It's a super fun project and it really doesn't require much work from the teacher (time capsules are sent home with the student).  Here are the materials you need.  I hope you can use them!

Last minute sale and link up

Pin It

I am calling this a last minute sale.  Not that I've been stingy or anything.  I've honestly just been overwhelmed!  It has been crazy busy.  I'm trying to take about 10 more credits between now and the end of the summer, my class is ready for summer, it's hot out, and I can't seem to pull myself out of bed in the morning because that's when I get the best sleep!!!!

Oh well!  I got the idea from Dee Dee Wills and then I linked up with Kinderzoo!  Check it out if you can and link up if you're having your own sale!

A Sale and Something Simple!

Pin It

I will get to the good stuff in just a second but first I need to talk a little bit about keeping things simple. It's tough sometimes to find balance between making sure things are cute, because those things do keep kids engaged, and keeping it real! With that said, I made a not really cute, but totally effective and fun sight word game.  Sight Word Bingo!  Just have students write words from the word wall onto the worksheet.  You can have them include a free space if you like.  Then use your flashcards as bingo callers.  Its perfect because students are writing the words, hearing the words and reading the words.

Here is the version that I made for my class- Sight Word Bingo I hope this can work for you! I've quite a few useful and cute products on my Teacher's Pay Teachers site. They are on sale, May 6-8th!
