Fast Finishers

Well...I decided to make binders for my "fast finishers". I went to BJ's and purchased 1/2" binders (6 for $7.99), page protectors and ink for my printer.

Goodness, it's a very daunting task! Here's a picture of one of the pages I created.
 And here's the link to the pages in the binder.

C-V-C picture cards

I print these cards out on card stock or colored paper. Laminate them and have the students use letter tiles or dry erase markers on them. I recently saw a video on youtube for "Fast Finishers", and I'm thinking of putting these into a folder using page protectors.

I've been "blogger stalking", apparently a common term in the blogging world. I'm completely overwhelmed by the world of blogging.
It's impressive to see what some teachers are doing in their classrooms. There are some fabulous Kinder blogs out there! WOWwee!

First time blogger...

I'm starting this blog to share my ideas with other teachers. I have spent countless hours searching the internet for games, clipart, worksheets, etc. After all that time, I end up making my own or making adjustments to ones I've found. Because of this, I thought why not share what I've made?

Feel free to leave feed back or send suggestions. Enjoy!
