TEACH CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT.
I am also going to start the year assessing with ESGI. I could say "obsessing" because I am a little obsessed with all that it offers.
Dr. Jean and I got together and made some Kindergarten CCSS I Can Cards and activities for you to use in the classroom- free!
Each standard is written in "kid friendly" language, and is on a card that you can make into a flip book with a book ring to display as you work on that standard. Dr. Jean has posted over 80 ideas to go along with the Reading Standards (Reading Literature, Reading Informational Text, Reading Foundational Skills).
She has them organized by each standard. She is AMAZING. Yes she is. That's not even all- in August, she is going to have activities to go along with each Writing and Math Standard. This is such a gift. You can download the cards free HERE at my TPT store and get her ideas HERE.
Finally, I made a Back to School Prezi that is FREE if you would like it! HERE is the US version.
HEREis the Canadian version!
