Summer Days. . .

Happy summer everyone!  I'm already having tons of fun with my two little men. . .Christian is all about baking cupcakes (or anything else that's loaded with sugar and calories)!  He really loves cooking, and I can't wait to try out some new recipes and decorating tips with him. 

Solomon has fallen in love with watermelon, but he refuses to accept any assistance while eating it.  That's why he has his little bowl and a towel as he sits on the kitchen floor!

For the past few days I've been at a summer curriculum conference which is held by my district each summer.  I got a lot of great ideas from the conference.  One of my favorites was a new twist on a fairly common classroom activity "I Have...Who Has...?"  This game promotes listening skills which is an essential skill for little ones.  I plan on creating cards for upper and lower case letters, number recognition, colors, shapes, basic math facts, and vocabulary.  I think they're  great for review or if you just need a quick time filler.

I plan on creating a few more sets like this to review kinder word wall words at the beginning of the school year.  
I Have. . . Who Has Cards

The first card in each set has two "green words," and the last card has a stop sign on it. All you have to to is laminate and cut them.  Mix them up and they're ready to go.  I designed them with a class of 22 in mind so you'll have to make a few adjustments depending on the actual number of kids you have in your class.  

  Also don't forget that starting next week you can stop by for How "Tues"day and Fab Finds Friday.  I'll be posting other activities, freebies, and ideas.  However, Tuesday's and Friday's are already mapped out.  I hope your summer is off to a great start!

  3. LOVE your I have who has...I did these at the end of the year. What was I waiting for? The kids LOVED this!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Golly your kids are cute! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Your kids are adorable! I love the picture of Solomon with the watermelon oozing out of his mouth - hilarious! The stop sign on your I Have..Who Has cards is a great idea. I've tried to play the game without having a clear beginning and ending, and it can get a bit messy. This is a great resource.

  6. Thanks for the freebies. They are great! I love the beginning of the year concepts for this game!
