This Teacher Appreciation Week definitely needs some goodness. Teachers have been adjusting to a vastly different way of instructing their students. Because of this I think we are all exhausted. So, I am sharing a teacher giveaway for a Teachers Pay Teachers gift card to help brighten your day and perhaps help you find something that will lighten your load.
As a PreK teacher I have been creating packets each week that parents pick up for my students. There are some items from my shop that go home each week that might be helpful to you if you are dealing with distance learning in a similar way.
Q-tip Painting Activities
I have sent home q-tip painting activities a few times. To complete the sheets I send q-tips and paint in small containers. I found the q-tips and containers at the local dollar store. There are several sets of q-tip pages found in my TPT shop.
I have also sent home a few path games, like the Space path game above. Since I had no way of knowing whether my students had any dice, I used foam cubes to create dice to send home. I had these on hand from the dollar store as well.
Each week I have also sent home an emergent reader, either from the ABC Bundle or one related to our theme. For the alphabet emergent readers I have mostly chosen the books that involve the student cutting apart the words and pasting them in the book to match the sentences. Since we usually have completed some type of emergent reader activity each week during our regular school year I am hoping this provides something familiar to my students while they are at home.
Dot Marker Activities
If you know your students have access to dot markers you could send home some of my new ABC Dot Marker Bundle sheets. Students could also use other coloring utensils to complete these sheets or cover the letters with linking cubes or other small manipulatives.
