Introducing… my awesome new blog design!!

I am SO excited to do my first official blog post under my new blog design! A special shout out to Kassie over at Designs by Kassie for her AMAZING custom blog design. Thank you SO much!!

I have also started a Facebook page for Sweet Sounds of Kindergarten! Make sure to check it out and "like" me! I am loving all of these new ways to connect to other teachers. :)

I have been SO busy these last few weeks both in and out of my classroom! I just finished doing choreography for a musical at my old high school and have now started choreographing a musical for our middle school kids at the school I teach at! I know it's crazy to be taking on all of these outside projects, but I'm glad that my bff & co-worker is choreographing with me!

I wanted to share some of my latest projects and freebies that I have been working on!
I finished some new literacy packs that focus on story elements. I LOVE doing units like this with my kindergartners and plan on using both of these packs later this year in my own classroom.
I recently became a fan of Mrs. Wishy-Washy's Farm by Joy Cowley, and realized that this is a great book to teach sequencing to my kiddos!

Here's a preview at my literacy pack! 

I also included an emergent reader with farm animals! 

The next book that I recently discovered is The Easter Bunny's Assistant by Jan Thomas. 

I can't WAIT to do some of the activities with my kiddos from my literacy pack. I know that they are going to really enjoy this fun story. :) 

Finally, for some FREEBIES!! 
I uploaded an Easter Emergent Reader that is also included in my Easter Bunny's Assistant Literacy Pack. 
Check it out below! 

We are also hard at work on implementing more writing rubrics at my school, so I came up with a Kindergarten Writing Rubric where my kiddos can color in a star to evaluate their own writing. I can also use the rubric to evaluate them, and use it as a great tool to conference with my kids about their writing! It is FREE in my TPT store! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great evening!!
