Learning Goals Progress Report FREEBIE

For most of us report cards can be overwhelming to parents. My teaching partner and I created these progress reports to send home throughout the semester/trimester to keep parents up-to-date on where their child is and what the goal is. There are three different templates that can be used through out the year, from beginning of the year to the end of the year. The goals are aligned Common Core.

Let me know if you want additional goals added. Don't forget to follow me on TPT so you can be notified when I add new projects and sales. 

Enjoy :)

Writer's Workshop Writing Paper

I have used this writing paper all year with kindergarten students. As they learn to write more I increased the amount of lines on the paper. 

I pride myself on creating original projects that I have used in my classroom and have found helpful and productive. I do not like to over crowd my projects with distractions (clip art), I want my student's work to shine.

FREEBIE - Letters I Know Data Notebook Artifact

Two posts in one day, look out! I added more data notebook artifacts to my TPT site. Here is a FREEBIE. We used these artifacts to track, record, and showcase students' learning. My teacher partner and I found the successful when sharing real data with parents, instead of just the report card. Parents appreciated it too. Using these artifacts students were able to lead the student-led conference on their own. In the comments below, let me know how you use data notebook and what other artifacts you would like.

This set includes capital letters graph, lowercase letters graph, reading benchmark graph, goal sheet, number recognition, counting to 100, and number writing. All of these are aligned with the common core.

Enjoy :)

And...I'm back! Updated Calendar Math

I can't believe it has been over a year since I have post, (a year and two days). 2013 brought on many changes, a new baby, a new job, and graduated with my masters. Phew, that was a lot. So I am back now updated somethings and adding new.

I updated my Calendar Math file. I took out 2013, and added a couple new ones. If you already downloaded it, you should be able to download it again for free. For those of you who haven't, you get the updated one that doesn't have the year so you can use it year after year.

More to come this week, stay tuned! If you have downloaded this file already please let me know how you used it and what you would like added. 

Enjoy :)
