Initial Sound Center

Initial Sound Center

This Initial Sounds Center is a perfect center for any Reception or Year 1 classroom! At the center, students clip the letter on the clothes pin to the picture with the matching beginning sound. The beginning sounds sheets are included in colour and black & white. To organise this center, I print each letter chart with a different coloured background and then laminate. Using a different coloured marker for each clothes pin set, I write lower case letters from a to z. Each set is put in a plastic ziploc baggie. I use different coloured markers for each set of clothes pins so that students do not mix up their clothes pins. The pictures for initial sounds are as follows: a - astronaut b - boat c - car d - duck e - elf f - flower g - guitar h - helicopter i - iguana j - jar k - kite l - lamp m - money n - necklace o - otter p - pig q - queen r - rocket s - sun t - tape u - umbrella v - vegetables w - window x - x-ray y - yarn z - zipper

Alphabet Brag Tags

Alphabet Brag Tags

A fun and unique way for students to remember and "brag" about the letters of the alphabet taught that day! These positive and unique brag tags were created to encourage and motivate young students to learn the letters and reward their efforts. Each of the brag tags / rewards are unique so that students receive something different and special for each letter learned which keeps them enthusiastic and excited about their learning. The tags were created to appeal to young children and also give them a visual reminder for each letter. Each brag tag has a praise word. Students can collect each individual tag on necklaces, or as individual rewards that are taken home (great way to keep parents informed of progress). Alphabet Brag Tags - 28 pages including the main cover Aa - apple Bb - ball Cc - cat Dd - dog Ee - elephant Ff - fish Gg - gorilla Hh - hen Ii -igloo Jj - jam Kk - key Ll - lion Mm - mango Nn - neck Oo - octopus Pp - pig Qq- queen Rr - rabbit Ss -sun Tt - tiger Uu -umbrella Vv - violin Ww - watch Xx -x-ray Yy -yogurt Zz - zebra PRINTING TIP: This resource has been designed for printing on 8X11 sized paper. If you are printing on a different size, select “shrink to printable area” or “print to fit page” (or a similar option) in order for the contents of this unit to print correctly.

Halloween Task Card Activity Bundle

Halloween Task Card Activity Bundle

This Halloween themed bundle is packed full of different task card activities that target a variety of different skills for students to work on, while being quick to grab and hand out throughout the day, being re-usble each year and introducing the theme of Halloween into your learning environment. There are a HUGE amount of different task cards included in this bundle which you and your students are sure to love. This pack also contains editable 'titles' to use in the front of storage boxes where you can write the activities that can be found in that storage box. I store these in photo keeper boxes, making them quick to grab out and go, then work my way through the different boxes so students get a chance at working on a variety of different activities. You can use these cards as 1:1 work, group centre work or even as full class activities. Instructions are also included on first pages of each PDF document. I would highly recommend laminating each of the individual task cards so that they will be stronger, therefore longer lasting.
