Fall literacy work stations and a sale

There is only one and 1/2 weeks left in summer holidays.  I can't believe it.  I was at school today trying to clean and get organized.  I don't know if I'm going to be ready or not.

To help celebrate all the schools who start after Labour Day, TpT is having a one day Back to School sale today.

I will be putting all my products on sale for 20% off.  Don't forget to enter the Promo Code either.

I managed to finish my Fall literacy work stations just in time for the sale.  I will be getting these printed off this week so they are ready for the first day of school.

I wanted to do a lot of activities that practice the alphabet straight off the bat.  

This game will wonderful as a matching game for children still learning letters and for the children who know all their letters, I'm going to get them to put the letters in order.

 This game again practices matching letters.  You can match uppercase to uppercase or lowercase to lowercase or for a challenge, have the children match upper to lowercase.

This game is little more challenging.  I want to know if the children can find the letter before or after the given letter.

I haven't decided what sight words I'm starting with yet so I made all of the Pre-primer Dolch list words.  I've never tried a write the room activity before.

I know we are going to have to practice printing.  I thought this would be a fun way to do it.

Letters are tricky when they are written in different fonts.  This game is a chance to practice sorting some letters that look a little "different".

My kids always love this game.  I hide the acorn under a squirrel.  They call out a letter and then get to look under that letter to see if the acorn is there.  If it is, they win.  Great for letter practice.

I wanted the children to practice some fall words.  I may use links to join the letters.

I have as well, bundled both the literacy and math activities into one product.  This is your best savings.

I thought I would highlight a couple of products from some friends of mine.

My friend Tara has the best pack for busy teachers.  This is full of last minute activities that don't require any prep.  Perfect for a Monday morning.

This year I am going to have one grade student. In order to program effectively for her, I'm using some products from my friend Lyndsey.

My friend Jennifer has the cutest alphabet hats.  And what kindergarten child doesn't love to wear a hat?
