Tricky Y FREEBIES, and some Squiggle CUTENESS!

Hi Peeps! It's Tuesday already!! YAY! Kerri here...
First of all, A big GINORMOUS thank you to those of you who already got my Amazing Alphabet Pack
I shudder to think about next year already, but it will be here before we know it! For you Kinder teachers out there, this pack is the perfect culmination of a year spent learning the ABC's (Aah, my fond memories of teaching Kindergarten all those years!)

 I have some FREEBIES for you! But first, here are some pictures of our latest Squiggles from my Squiggle Writing Pack!
I tell you what...my kids never cease to amaze me with their creativity. They see things I would NEVER see when they make their squiggle story. Here are some fun ones...

They made some SUPER cute ones this week, and I can't wait to share them when I get around to grading yet ANOTHER mountain of papers this weekend (Can you tell I'm sooo excited??)

Here are 2 freebies for you! The first I posted last year around this time when we were teaching about the sound Tricky Y. I thought I would post it again since we have a "few" more followers than we did last April (we love you guys!!)
It is a read the room center called "The Grouchy Fy". Print up the cards, laminate (natch!) and tape around your room. Have the kids use clipboards to look for all of the grouchy fly cards, read the sentences, and write the words that have the 2 sounds for tricky y on their recording paper. Easy peasy and they LOVE LOVE it!!

I also made a SUPER SIMPLE (not cute, don't judge!) word sort cut and paste for my kiddos to practice the tricky y sounds this week. Not only do they have to cut and paste the correct word onto the correct column, they also have to read the words to their table partner and then their partner gets to put a happy face on their paper as proof that they read the words. They LOVE being the boss of their partners, do they not?? It also keeps my kids accountable with practicing reading the words, not just cutting and gluing and calling it a day. You know what I mean??

That's all I got folks!! But, be sure to enter our giveaway for the Hear-All Assessment Recorder! It ends tomorrow! And, I'll be back later this week with a giveaway for this little baby...
Oh snaps!!

Have you heard of The Neat Line: Scribbling Through Mother Goose. I little scribble becomes lines that turn into parts of Mother Goose Faity Tales. You squiggles made me think of it.
