My students love the routines I do when we are starting our day and this is a particular favorite. Once again the cupcakes fit right into a pocket chart and I hide the sprinkes behind a word they might be having trouble with. We chant this little rhyme until someone comes up to pull the card they have read and the sprinkles are behind the card. This causes so much excitement. The children have suggested I make them real cupcakes to match these!
Assessments are coming soon and this provides much needed practice!

I have been teaching all of my adult life and still love doing this. I have taught kindergarten for 25 years and also have a credential in Special Education. I am a trainer for my district and love working with kindergarten teachers and young children. I am so lucky to have such a rewarding job where I get hugs from 5 year olds all day!
