A Pocket Full of Learning Fun


I decided to make some very simple activities for young students to use as math and literacy stations at the beginning of the year. I am always looking for simple things to reinforce the skills they are learning. This is designed to be used with the mini pocket charts you bought at Target and I will be selling this on  TpT. I have provided labels to go with these activities so you can stay organized. See if this will help you in those early months when you start wondering when their independent skills are going to kick in! Where did summer go and what have I been doing with myself?


I am so excited about this packet. I hope it is something all of you can use. I just finished it tonight and it's 35 pages! YIKES! Some of the ideas I included are simple sentence building work, matching upper and lowercase letters, class sorts, color work, a shape activity, and number fun. I hope this helps to build academic vocabulary too.

Hi Fran, I love this new packet idea to use with all the pocket charts I bought! I looked for in on TPT but couldn't find it. Did I do something wrong?
Thanks,
Pat

PS: Are you doing a TM training next week?

I purchased it today, but it won't let me download it...I think TPT is having issues.

Hi Fran,
I am giggling because I was at the Dollar Spot earlier today and got 3 of the pocket charts! I didn't know what I wanted to do with them...now I do! ;-)
Thanks! I am heading over to TPT now!
You are amazing....

Hi! I am new to your site and absolutely LOVE it. I have been trying to print your math talk cards. Whenever I print them, the words print blacked out. I am at a loss? Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks for your help!
