Freebie Friday

Friday, Friday, Friday!!! You know what that means, freebies! I am trying to finish up my Valentine's day unit and once it is done I will put a sneak peek up here! Once Monday rolls around it is back to reality, work, grad school and little sleep. So trying to get as much done now before I will be swamped.

 In my last post I showed you my unit for "The Mitten," this is such a popular storybook for this time of year. I loved doing it in Kindergarten but had to change things for my second graders. I added a "Noun sort" worksheet in my Literacy Pack which includes nouns from the story. Students will sort the nouns by person/animal, places or things. They will then cut and paste into the correct columns.This is a great way to get them warmed up and review Nouns once they get back from the Holiday break!  At my TpT store I put the worksheet up as a freebie and you can also download it here to from my google docs.

I have had some very sweet comments from some fellow bloggers and since everyone is getting back into the swing of things I decided to give an additional freebie but only for followers on here, this will not be a freebie on my TpT store.

At my TpT store you can find this worksheet and much more included in "The Mitten Kindergarten Math Unit" (which is aligned to Common core) or under "The Mitten" Pattern Worksheets where you will find 2 more pattern worksheets in color. This is great for seat work, centers and assessments. The patterns focus on color, shape, direction and size. 

I have to say I am excited to get back to the classroom and back to the kiddies but I am nervous that they may have forgotten some things since we were last in school. Don't you love that first day back when they are half asleep and you can be dancing around like a money and they still won't wake up? If you went back to work this week,  feel free to share how your students did getting back to the classroom!! :)



  1. Thank you for the great ideas! I am a new blogger and would love to get my name out there in the teacher blogging world. I am a K teacher right outside of Nashville (Franklin). I am having a difficult time tapping in and friending other teacher bloggers :) Any advice/shout outs would be tremendously appreciated!
    Thanks so much!
