My first mission was to find some bananas to use with the Top Banana letter recognition unit
So I am not exactly sure about how I will use them, but there are lots of possibilities.
Then I found this chart -- perfect for charting the mastery of letter recognition and later sight words.
Now all I can see are monkeys, so I added these stickers and incentive charts to my cart.
That was enough with monkeys and bananas!
My other purchase was some new sticks for my "BANG! Game. I think I got that idea from Reagan Tunstall several years ago. My kinders always love that game, and my sticks were pretty dirty, so I got new sticks that I color coded to match the sight word lists -- now I can differentiate. The kids can choose a stick by the color that matches the sight word list they are working on.
I have turned in my supply order, and I don't intend to buy any more school stuff - until TPT has a nice sale sometime before school starts. I have a couple things on that wish list. I need to make one more trip to school to do a little more sorting and purging, then I hope to forget about it for about a month.
