So Cal Link Up

Here we are at the end of another school year! 9 more school days for us to be exact. I feel both happy and sad about that fact since this year's class just happens to be one of the sweetest groups I've ever taught. Good thing I have something to take my mind off of not being their teacher anymore...
A TRIP TO TENNESSEE! I am so excited that I am finally taking advantage of teacher summers and spending a month at home. I get to see one of my best friends get married and then (fingers crossed) might get to be home for the other BFF's birth of her first born! I am looking forward to a few of my favorite things when I'm there:
I can't wait to hug my grandparents and spend extended, not-rushed time with other family members and friends. So ready to slow down and live that Southern way of life again if even just for a month! Then I'll of course be back in beautiful So Cal in July to enjoy another favorite...
I also get to take some time to plan and get ready for the upcoming school year, print and file, organize and clean, and do all of those other teacher things that we start missing when we're away from our classrooms for too long! One of my favorite things to do at the end of the year to be ready for the upcoming one is to go ahead and print some things I know I'll need during the first couple weeks of school. I like having resources ready and at hand so that I can focus on other things that I know will require my attention!
Daily warm ups are a great way to kill many birds with one stone! I have created a packet of daily warm ups that are sure to motivate your kinders to practice their early literacy skills! Your students will: 1) Get practice writing their names, 2) Get practice reading and writing letters, 3) Practice identifying and coloring letters, 4) Practice identifying color words and sorting things by that color, and my favorite 5) Establish a routine of coming into class ready to focus and work first thing every morning! Click below to grab a freebie from the larger packet: KINDERGARTEN DAILY WARM UPS {LETTERS, COLORS, SHAPES, NUMBERS}
We're not done! Link up with some amazing So Cal teachers for their freebies, and try to make it to the beach this summer! And keep scrolling to enter our giveaway for a Tieks gift card!!
