NEWLY REVISED and expanded! This packet now contains new activities, as well as some improved old ones! Download the preview to learn more.
This packet contains 2 sight word mini books, "Write the Room" sight word cards, a letter sound matching activity, two tally charts with graphing activities, a fun addition math game, 3 science centers, and more! 3 of the activities are on my list of all-time favorites! The activities can be used in centers and for whole group instruction.
This packet addresses the following Common Core Standards* for Kindergarten:
RF.K.1. Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom,
and page by page. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
RF.K.3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant. Associate the long and short
sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
RF.K.4. Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.
SL.K.5. Add drawings or other visual displays to descriptions as desired to provide additional detail.
K.CC.3. Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
K.CC.4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.5. Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects.
K.OA.1. Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out
situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
K.OA.3. Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and
record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).K.OA.5. Fluently add and subtract within 5.
K.MD.3. Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
