Alphabet Phonics Headbands!

I love making products for my girls that they totally LOVE!  These Alphabet Phonics Headbands are perfect!  Both Moffatt Girls LOVE coloring so this made them super happy!  

The headbands are designed to reinforce and teach each letter and their sound.  Each headband has a letter with a picture and corresponding smaller pictures to help teach/reinforce the phonics sound made by the letter.  It is a super FUN and effective way to teach letter.

The littlest Moffatt Girl was a bit shy around the camera so I couldn't capture her enjoying her headband.  However, she did color and cut out the letter C headband (not shown).  I loved hearing her say, C for cat... /c/ /c/ cat... /c/ /c/ carrot... /c/ /c/ cookie!  Such a FUN way to learn and reinforce letter sounds:)

I am totally in love with this little girl!   Her smile just melts my heart and she likes her headband:)

Magnetic Elapsed Time Set Review and GIVEAWAY!

It is always fun to do reviews and giveaways for Learning Resources because they have some fantastic products!  I was super happy to be able to review their Magnetic Elapsed Time Set because I love resources that provide hands-on learning.

Teaching time can always be a struggle for students, especially elapsed time!  I am so happy with this product because it is super simple for kids to see and grasp mathematical concept.  When I demonstrated the elapsed time concept for Audrey with the magnetic set, she immediately got it!  She was moving the pieces, manipulating the clock and setting her own times.  I heard her say, "If I went to the mall at 7:00 and came back at 11:00, how long was I gone?"  The mall?  Whatever works:)

The Elapsed Time Set would be great for students who need to learn time by the hour or elapsed time, which can be a difficult concept to teach.  The set comes with 2 large magnetic clocks (10 inches), removable guide numbers and 24-hour timeline in 4 segments.

The center dial pieces are also magnetic and great for easy manipulation...

The set also includes a magnetic START and END piece to help students SEE the elapsed time.  Although we haven't really talked about how AM and PM work together, the strips really lend themselves to this concept for future learning.  

I love that the pieces are large and durable.  I think these would be perfect for any classroom or homeschool room.

Sight Word Money!

If you like our Sight Word Watches, then you may like our Sight Word Money!  I am so happy that I made this product because both girls have been loving their sight word money!  Audrey started by coloring her Super Sight Word Wallet...for girls.  Next, I made copies of our sight word money on green construction paper, but you could also have students color the money themselves.

It was fun for Audrey to collect the "money" in her wallet and read her sight word dollars!

I printed the sight word dollars on green construction paper, but you could also just have the students color the money.  The Sight Word Money pack also includes wallets for both boys and girls.  On the back of each wallet is a list of the sight words included in the pre-primer list.  As students earn their sight word dollars, they can then check them off of their list.  Super cute, super effective!

Pre-Primer Sight Words:
a, and, away, big, blue, can, come down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run,said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow and you.

We also have the following versions available:

You can also grab The Bundle for a better savings!
The Bundle includes Pre-Primer, Primer and 1st Grade...

Such a FUN way for kids to learn a new sight word and earn some sight word bucks!

I know that some of you are going to be a bit disappointed by the fact that you will not see this unit "in action" on this blog post.  We plan on starting early September, although Audrey has begged me to start earlier:)  I will post pictures as soon as we finish.

Weekly Lesson Plans, Common Core Alignment Sheets, Ready2Read Certificate and MORE!

I have the decorations for our new wall theme and I can't wait to get it all set up!  This is a very bad picture, but I thought I would show you what we are planning to do with the Ocean theme wall.

From top to bottom:
*I couldn't decide if I liked the plain blue waves or the little fishy border.  Hmm...still deciding.
*I just LOVE our ocean paper!  It looks like you are under the sea:)
*The Designer Letters will be used to say, "Ready2Read Level 3" and maybe something else.   
I purchased these items from Lakeshore.

I am super excited to get started on this unit with Audrey, but we will just have to wait a couple of more weeks.  

Although this unit is more than twice as large as the other units, I have decided to keep the price the same.  I initially considered breaking up the printables into two packs, the unit pack and an extension pack.  However, I wanted YOU to be able to decide which printables were best for your students.  I  wanted you to have enough choices to make this reading program successful.  Do not feel that you need to use ALL of these printables, even though The Moffatt Girls will be using all of them:)

I sincerely hope you enjoy this Ready2Read Level!!
