Friday again, and time for this week's Fistful of Friday Freebies! This week's list is full of goodies for PreK and kindergarten teachers, but even higher grades will find use for some of these.
At TeachersPayTeachers, here's a big fat freebie from Babbling Abby...54 pages of highlighter fun, and we know how the little guys loooove using those highlighters! Take a look at Highlight-a-Letter!
Via Pinterest, Learn with Play at Home.com has an amazing list of 90 ways to teach your children the alphabet. This is actually much more than just a list, since each idea is linked to details at another site or blog. Great stuff!
Back at TPT, this one is a SMARTboard file from David called Clothespin Spelling . You'll find it's also useful for sequence of letters or matching uppercase to lowercase forms. My students loved this one! Older kids would find it fun to use this for spelling words, content vocabulary, spelling patterns, etc. Wow - 38,000+ downloads!!
The Homeschooling Mommy at TPT has the cutest Animal Safari set. The children use "cameras to locate letters hidden in animal scenes. What fun!
Last on today's list comes from Teachers Notenook, where Barnard Island offers an alphabet with ASL symbols. Using ASL symbols in the regular ed classroom is valuable on so many levels: another way of remembering for kinesthetic learners, extra challenge for advanced learners, and character-building empathy.
Enjoy your freebies, and enjoy your weekend!
