This version above is included in my St. Patrick's Day packet or for sale individually in the packet below.

Freebie Links and More for the SDE NJ Kindergarten Conference

First, let me say that I had the best time ever presenting for SDE in Atlantic City, NJ last week.  I am a Tri-State girl myself!

As promised, here are links to the products I shared during my presentations and a few slides from the presentations.   Just click the images or look below the images for links. 

*Some of the free file links are through GoogleDrive.  If you are unfamiliar with how to download from there, read this post.  You don't need to request access, just the little arrow that points down.
DO NOT request access by putting in your email.  That just goes to spam.  You just need to look for the little arrow pointing down at the top of the page.  You might also see "download now"  or "download anyway," just click on these. 

Some of the resources I shared:

If you did not attend the session, you can get my close reading packet for Bear Snores On here:

The reading strategy posters above were made by sending a png image to Costco photo department.  The png's are included in this packet.

I found this idea on Pinterest, I am not sure where the original pin is...but whoever thought of this...genius!  You tape a ribbon in the back of the book and then flip it over and the kids use it as a bookmark.  No more, opening their notebooks to the middle of the book or searching for the right page.

Resources from friends:
