ABCs and a Freebie!

I spent the day in my new classroom today! I am moving from Resource to Grade 1 next year so I get a brand new room! I walked into the building today and was instantly informed that my new room had been cleared out. It is COMPLETELY empty! One might think this is a good thing but... it is a little overwhelming! I'll have to figure out where I want everything and, right now, I don't have a plan! Ha!

So I decided to clean out my old room and just carry everything into my new space for now. I guess I have some brainstorming to do this summer ;)

I wanted to show you my latest addition to my TPT and TNstores. I made it with my little firsties in mind even though I know I won't be back until March. I'll admit, I'm kinda hoping my replacement teacher will be all "Oh my gosh! You are a genius!" and will use all my stuff! Hahaha!

Anyway, here it is! My ABC Literacy Centers Pack!
I started creating this pack by making an ABC chart just like my Sounds Chart from my Sound Blends Pack. 
I really enjoyed using my sound blends chart this year with my resource kids and plan to use it again next year in my Grade One class. However, I needed something to review the ABCs first!

As usual, one thing led to another and... a complete unit was born! Hehehe!

Here is what you can find in my ABC Centers Pack:
* ABC Chart (full page poster and half page for desks or notebooks)
* Alphabet Wall Cards
* ABC Order Center: Letters
* ABC Order Center: Beginning Sounds
* Syllables Sorting: Center Game and Cut & Paste Game
* Letter Matching Center: Uppercase and Lowercase
* Roll and Cover Game
* Alphabet Printing Pages

Each center comes with instructions posters and recording sheets.
Most recording sheets are differentiated.

This pack is great for pre-K and Kindergarten. It is also perfect for beginning of the year review in Grade One (which is what I will be using it for ;)

You can find this pack at both my TPT and TN stores!

Next, I am working on my 123 Pack! I'll be posting it later this week and when I do, I'll bundle them up for those of you who want both ;)

Don't forget to grab yourself a freebie before you go!
I am giving everyone the Roll and Cover game from my new pack :)

Enjoy,



Almost forgot! Congrats to Sandra! Thanks for leaving me a comment, you just won yourself my Everybirdie Craftivity :)
Check your emails! Hope your kiddies like it ;)

Where can I find your Sound blends chart? It would be so handy to use with my daughter.

Valerie said...

Hi Sarah,
I'm so sorry but my Sound Blends pack has been temporarily taken down from my TPT store as I am working to update it. If you want my chart alone, I can email it to you. Just leave me your email address and I'll be sending it your way :)
Thanks for visiting my blog,
Valerie

Sarah Stewart said...

Yes, thank you! Sarahstewart83@yahoo.com

Hey Valerie,

You have done some great stuff...I have just purchased your ABC and 123's pack and was also hoping to purchase your sound blends poster. Any idea when that will be back on TN or the TPT website. Great work again......I seriously do not know when you find the time.

Thanks,

Louise
