High Frequency Word Cards

If you are working with CA Treasure then you know that they have these gigantic High Frequency Word Cards that takes up space. It's basically a large white card with a little word in the middle, so I retyped it so it can fit inside a pocket chart (without falling out), make it into printable rings for each student, and place it on the word wall. The cards with stars are the words directly from Treasure Kindergarten. I plan on adding color words and more HFW later. If you want me to add more words, let me know.

Here is the original floor cards I made with dots instead of pictures (I changed it to the pictures to make it easier for the student to recognize which card belongs to them). I will use these cards as math centers where they can put the cards in order, group by colors, odd/even numbers..etc. I got the polk-a-dot border from Karen Cox. Click here for your free version.

Polka Dot Numbers

Picture Floor Mats

I was inspired by Pinterest (aren't we all) to make this for my class. I thought it would be a great way to teach the little ones about numbers and counting all year long AND help with class management (they will be assigned a number). Their number is based on their last name, so it helps with lunch as well.  Here my first official sharing file! Hope you like it. Please leave a comment if you download it.
