Kindergarten Phonics and Handwriting Practice Work (D'Nealian)

Hi kindergarten and first grade teachers!  Are you looking for effective phonics and handwriting work - featuring D'Nealian handwriting - that is budget and time friendly?  This is the packet for you.

Simply print  the pages you need for your writing center.   Saving pages throughout the year in a portfolio creates an effective assessment tool for individualization.  If  you plan on using this packet for print-and-go morning work, laminating the pages and placing them in a binder creates reusable packets.  {Clear page protectors are an alternate way to “laminate” pages on the fly.}  Reusable packets work well with dry erase markers. 

This packet creates an amazing way to individualize curriculum for the needs of each child – even for older children developmentally behind in learning and mastering this set of skills.  Check it out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/DNealian-Kindergarten-Phonics-and-Handwriting-Practice-Packet-1658868

Snowman Number Match Up

Click the image to view this product in my TPT store.

The set includes:
- Number cards 0 - 100
- 14 frame mats
- Common Core Standards for Kindergarten

On card stock, print as many of the number cards and frame mats needed for your students, cut along the lines, print the frames, laminate, and place in your math center. {I prefer to use my 1-100 number cards on a magnet board...so I add magnets to the backs of each card with double face tape. Old business card style refrigerator magnets work great for this type of activity!} 

My students love to count! I see their confidence growing as we use these cards daily for group practice during our morning meeting. I hope your students love this hands on method of practice as much as mine do.
