Mrs. Miner's Monkey Business would like to share with you her newest edition of popcorn word literacy center fun. As always, her centers are quick and easy to prepare and need limited materials. This center includes 20 worksheets that start easy and progressively get a little more challenging. The unit follows the kindergarten MacMillan McGraw Treasures Reading program, but contatins the most commonly used sight words (at the k level), so can easily be adapted for any spelling program practice. Also included in the program are templates for each word and large sized letter "tiles" for children to "build" the words on top of the templates. It is a fantastic way for children to build letter recognition, letter orientation, and letter proportion as they learn the popcorn words whole group. Independently the children cut out word tiles and match them up with the correctly sized boxes and glue down the words. This kit aligns perfectly with the Monkey Popcorn Word Fun Unit. With these two kits, your yearlong spelliing program could be all planned out if you need to create your own as many kindergarten teachers do. This kit would also be a great review for independent 1st grade workers!

I am a kindergarten teacher and have been for many years now. I love teaching 5 and 6 year olds, mainly because they are so eager to learn and love me no matter what! I specialize in teaching differentially and focussing on children's individual needs, so that is what you will find in my products. All of my products have been classroom tested and approved, as well as have many different uses and most can be used year round! I also make a huge effort to create materials that are ready to go because I personally know just how busy teachers are these days.
