We're Going on a Bear Hunt Map & Binocular Craft (and FREE story retelling printable)~ This is awesome. Chloe loves the story, maps, and binoculars! I know her AM preschool teacher sings variations of this song.
For attendance? A quick get to know you/math (counting and graphing) activity. Later in the year students can generate the questions and write them. Place on light colored paper, laminate, and questions can be added with white board marker.
Spelling Use a small chalkboard and write the classes sight words. Then use a small eraser and have the students overlap the words written in chalk. Works on their motor skills needed to write the words and practices their spelling.
