See & Stamp for December

My students are absolutely LOVING our stamping center. Something about stamps and ink pads are just so enthralling ;) Have you seen the self-inking alphabet stamps that Kristin from A Teeny Tiny Teacher shared about?! They're pretty awesome!
I just uploaded my See & Stamp centers for December and I wanted to share all the fun with you! This resource includes 4 literacy centers and 4 math centers!
Here's a closer look!
The lowercase letter center includes two printables. The students can either practice alphabetical order, or beginning sounds. They will choose a letter, stamp it on their paper and then draw a picture of something that starts with that letter. This one is definitely a favorite!
 Students will choose a present card and read the word on the tag. Then they will use their alphabet stamps to spell out the word.
More CVC words and beginning sounds practice! This time they will either stamp the first sound they hear in the word or all the sounds, depending on their abilities at this time of year!
I've also included 27 sight words to read and stamp, but if you have different words, do not fret! I included an editable PowerPoint file where you can type in the words you need!
For this math center, the kiddos will choose a number card and stamp the number. Then they'll stamp the number that comes before and after it.
We just started working on addition to 5 so some of my kiddos are definitely ready for this center! I also included a recording sheet just for the sum to differentiate for my littles that aren't quite ready to make number sentences on their own.
Stamping teen numbers!
I also included a count and stamp because this is a skill we always need to practice! I included visual patterns for my students who are able to mentally group and add.

I just love making these each month! If you love them too, you can view my See & Stamp Growing Bundle here! As I make a new set each month, I add it to the bundle! Soon it will include centers for each month of the school year! It is discounted as it grows!

Rhyming Pumkins!

Last week, as I was prepping centers for the week, I pulled out my fun rhyming center from my Fall Math & Literacy Centers
The scarecrow reminded me of the cute little scarecrow I found at the 99 cent store the previous weekend and then I got this brilliant idea!
Anything larger than life is a huge hit in kindergarten so as you can imagine, this whole group activity was a lot of fun! I clipped a pumpkin onto the scarecrow's left side and we worked together to figure out which pumpkin rhymed with it. Rhyming is such an important skill to build phonemic awareness and we work on it a lot! Then my kiddos took turns coming up and clipping the pumpkin on. Those mini clips are perfect for building our fine motor muscles!
You can download and print these little pumpkins to use in your classroom by clicking the image below! Enjoy!
