Addition and Subtraction Pocket Chart Cards

Students can use the pocket chart cards to match the number to the apple tree that represents the same amount. They can also match the number to the matching word. Students can work in pairs with flashcards. One student will choose the flashcard and the other will use the cards to show the problem on the pocket chart using pictures, numbers or words. You will need to supply flash cards for the facts to ten. Click here.


Mother's Day Gift

These are some seed packets children can make for the garden. One is a template that can be designed for any seeds. One is a Mother's Day gift that can be filled with Hugs and Kisses from their child and the others can be filled with seeds and used to plant in a school garden or at home. If they are going to be used outside I would print them on card stock and laminate them for durability. Click here.

The end of the year will be here before you know it. Don't forget to thank those who have helped you make it through the year. This will make your job a little easier. Just cut and paste the pictures on the outside of a white bag and add a little something as a thank you. Click here.

Reward Punch Cards



Kids love to earn reward in school, but not everyone wants to earn the same reward. I have created seasonal and holiday reward punch cards.  Kids can choose the reward they want to work on earning.  Some may want extra computer time, or to change a seat and sit by a friend, or eat lunch with the teacher. The only cost to the teacher is the reward punch cards that you can print over and over again.  I have over 30 different cards to choose from.  The reward cards have 10 punches to be earned before they receive their reward.  Go to my store Kestner's Kreations Primary Pickins and search Reward Punch Cards to see the selection.
