A few pictures of the Kindergarten packet “in action”…
This is our Sight Word Set where you roll a die, color, trace or box up a sight word!
We used rainbows colors with our markers!
This was a great way to practice spelling sight words and proper letter formation…
So much in one page and she hardly realized that she practices 6 different sight words in 3 ways!
Kids love to color and Color by Sight Word is a GREAT way to color and practice reading sight words!
At the bottom you unscramble the sentence and practice copying it!
On our middle vowel sound page we used some stamps!
This was a great way to make in even more interactive and effective.
I made sure to put only the vowel sounds out so she could access them easily and quickly.
This was a great way to explore simple non-standard measurement with height and width.
We used some watercolor pencil and it turned into an art project 🙂
I love that she really took her time on this activity and FULLY understood simple measurement!
This Spin and Color a Ten Frame was a FAVORITE!
I wasn’t sure if this Kindergartener would be able to use the paperclip spinner, but I was wrong!
She caught on very quickly and did very well!
The goal was to spin the spinner, find the matching ten frame and color according to the code. Again, so many different concepts wrapped up in one interactive printable!
Ten Frames colored and concept mastered!
We also worked on some simple Word Family Houses!
Here is the -ug family in action. Say the name of the picture, write the -ug word family and read a simple sentence with cvc words, sight words and color words.

Roll a die and dot mark the correct beginning blend for each picture.
Simple, fun and effective!
She likes to see which column will be the 1st place winner.
Whenever you can make learning into a game, kids get excited!
This was a great review of beginning l-blend words…
Whenever we do math activities, I always try to pull out some sort of manipulative to help her “see” numbers in a visual way.
This time we used our linking cubes to add the two numbers.
We are doing pretty well with adding up to 10, but larger numbers require manipulatives.
After adding each set, she colors a pumpkin to match the sum.
A lot of hard work and a lot of fun learning!
We especially worked on the “counting on” strategy.
We used the cubes to count on from a given number.
Color by Sight Word
Whenever we pull out crayons and a “coloring page,” everyone is happy!
This is a great way to practice sight word recognition.
Read the two words on the candy corn and dot mark the ones that rhyme.
This pages works with simple CVC words, CVCe words and a few beginning blends and digraphs.
This was the perfect challenge because it required us to read carefully.
I didn’t realize this simple pages would be such a huge hit, but it was!
I included only 4 words for each set to keep the learning at the right level, without being too frustrating.
We started off my coloring the first letter in each word to help focus on the rules for putting words in ABC order. She sang her ABC’s and pasted the words correctly.
She did the same for the bottom set of the words…
ABC Order for beginners!
Again, we pulled out our math manipulative to help “see” how two equations are balanced.
Spin and Write Sight Words
Spin the paperclip spinner and write the sight word.
Race to the top and see which sight word will win first place!
I pulled out our extra large plastic paperclip, which made the spinner a bit easier.
I picked these up at my local office supply store.
Spin and Write a Sight Word
This was a great way to practice counting on with larger numbers.

Filling our our Multiplication Chart
We started off by filling in our multiplication chart. I noticed that my daughter was having some difficulty with the 12 so we pulled out some base ten manipulatives. We went through the multiplication facts so she could visually see the facts. It worked like a charm and math became more visual.
A little bright color coding makes learning fun…
(of course we will go back and practice our 11’s and 12’s 🙂 )
This was a fun way to work with base words and prefixes.
Circle and graph the base words according to the prefix..
Just a little practice with the use of proper quotation marks…

Sight Word Money!
We have always loved using our Sight Word Money and I recently added a few packets with some updates! I printed our Sight Word Money on green colored card stock. I started off by printing the pre-primer, primer and 1st Grade set for my 1st Grade. We read through all of the words so quickly and she was eager to master the ones she didn’t know. Now I am happy to say that we are getting ready to learn the 2nd and 3rd grade words!
I had originally planned to put little prizes in the treasure box so she could cash in her sight word bucks for a prize. However, I didn’t need to do that at all! She decided she wanted to store her sight word money in the box. If she successfully read the sight word, she was able to keep the sight word dollar. I was thrilled because she was self motivated and wanted to collect as many sight word dollars as possible!
Now I am off to print MORE sight word money 🙂
Sight Word Money Packets:
I hope that these resources help make learning FUN, engaging and hands-on this year!

Thanks for the help!!
Your activities are wonderful!
Hi, your materials are great as always! I was wondering if you sell monthly bundles that include all of the grade levels you provide, meaning Pre-3rd. If so, how much would that cost?
Each Monthly No Prep bundle is sold by grade level, so you would need to purchase each individually.
