Brown Bear Centers

Hey Friends! It Kaci from Mrs. Hoffer’s Spot!
I thought  I would drop by to show you the centers that my kiddos did this week. We are already into centers, and this past week, I have had two of my four bucket tubs up and running. Along with pattern blocks, writing center (crayons and paper), library and unifix cubes.

Because our state pulled out of the common core, we now have patterns in our standards. That is the first math topic we teach, so this center my kiddos were practicing AB patterns.

Then we are working on beginning sounds of “Ll Oo Gg Hh” at this center. The kids draw a card and and write the beginning sound. Looking at this picture now, it looks like my friend wrote the beginning sound to “fish” not “log” oops!

I would love for you to jump over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to download these guys! 
While you are there, I would love it if you followed me so you can catch more freebies I upload!!

I almost forgot….

Have a Happy First Day of College Football!

Have you had your first day of school yet?  Mine was two and a half weeks ago (which is crazy!)!  But I know there are a ton of people who don't start until after Labor Day.

FREE Parent Letter for Change of Clothing

Some of our little learners do not make it to the restroom on time. I like to send a parent letter home to request a change of clothing that will stay in the classroom. You never know when it might be needed! The beginning of the school year is especially hard for the little ones.

Come on by to download your FREE letter in English and Spanish.

Back To School Writing {Drawing Detailed Pictures}

Hello friends! I recently asked Kindergarten teachers what was the most important thing to work on when beginning to teach writing. Most answers were the same, but the one that almost all teachers said was, DRAWING DETAILED PICTURES!

I have a few monthly work on writing units. In those units, I have included a couple of pages that work on drawing a detailed picture. Well, I thought why not create an entire pack!? So, I DID! :-)

You can head over to my blog to read more about this new pack. You can download my new Freebie in my TpT store. Simply click on the title page to go directly there. Make sure you head over to my blog too!

Open House or Meet the Teacher Letter Freebie

Do you send out letters to your students over the summer? I always used to, but have started just giving it out at Open House since we started having that before school starts.  I still haven't decided how I'll be getting these gifts to my new students yet, but, one way or another, they are getting them.  Now, you can send them, too, because I FINALLY updated my Back to School Letter Packet with the new updated version as seen below.  Also included in the packet are several different versions of Jitter Glitter letters, a First Day poem for parents (must include tissues if you use this one!),  as well as two different choices for the "growing" gift you can give your students (for preK, K and 1st!).
