I made some weather posters for my class and thought I would share them with you as well. There are eight different posters and they come in full 8.5 x 11 and and half size. I also included the black and white patterns that can be used as coloring pages. You can download the posters using the link below the video.
During the first week of school we make "all about me" books and read them at circle time so the children can get to know each other a bit better. With the covid-19 pandemic still ongoing I know some children will not be attending an in person classroom environment so feel free to share the completed books with other students through your home or virtual classroom.
The book includes the following pages:
cover page - child colors person to look like them
my name Is - write and decorate name
this Is my picture - glue picture of child
this Is my handprint - trace around and color or paint and press
my favorite colors - color in the three circles
I know these letters - cut and glue letters child can identify
I know these numbers - cut and glue numbers child can identify
I know these shapes -cut and glue shapes child can identify
I know these colors - cut and glue colors child can identify
this Is my family - draw and color a picture of family
my favorite foods - cut and glue images (magazine or internet search)
my favorite animals - cut and glue images (magazine or internet search)
You do not need to complete all of the pages of the book especially with younger children. I intentionally left out a page for the child's phone number as well as an address page to protect the child's identity in case the book gets lost. You can grab the book pattern below:

I made a Teddy Bear Color Match for color recognition and fine motor development skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out. I then laminated them for durability.
I set the teddy bears and honey pot cards out in two different piles along with some mini clothespins. I purchased the clothepins from amazon and although they are mini we use them for many activities.
In this activity children children find the teddy bear and the honey pot with the same color and clip them together. I have included honey pots with and without color labels.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added teddy bear fine motor counting.
