PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*** ON THE BESTSELLER's LIST!!! ***

The pocket chart center is a favorite in my classroom! That's why I like to make it fun and educational at the same time! In this packet, I have created pocket chart activities, 2 per month, for your students to read, write and color. Everything is already made for you - simply print, photocopy, cut and insert into your pocket chart! There are worksheets that accompany each pocket chart activity that progress with difficulty as each month passes and for differentiated instruction as well. The focus for each activity is based on sight word recognition and/or color words.

There are a total of 20 complete pocket chart activities for you to use. Themes range from Back to School, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter, Valentine's Day, Transportation, Spring, St. Patty's Day, Ocean and more!

Having fun is so important in my classroom - using this resource will surely make the Pocket Chart a new favorite in your classroom too!

Please download and try the preview. If you like it, you will LOVE the activities included!

Thanks for looking!

On  July 16, 2013,  Melinda N. asked:
I have a question about your "all year long" pocket chart sentence pack. I bought it last year and used some of the activities. This summer, I'm trying to create all of them for the whole year. However, I've noticed that on the student response pages, the sentences don't line up-the repetitive sentences are not directly on top of one another and this confuses some of my students who struggle with reading. Does this make sense? For example, in your Sept pack, you have "I am a red apple." Then you have "I ____ a green apple. But those sentences are pushed over so everything doesn't line up. Is there any way you could go through all of the student response pages and line everything up so we could re-download it or somehow make it accesible to us? Several of the teachers I know who have bought this find we can't use it being like this because it throws our kids off. Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 3, 2013Alessia Albanese answered:
Hi there,
Thank you for your question. I have sold lots of these packs and have asked teachers for their feedback. Each sentence is aligned as best as possible. I will not be able to space out each word equally as the sentence will look silly compared to the next one. Perhaps if you showed the students an example of how to complete the worksheet, they will be able to follow along. I teach Pre-K/K and most of my students are able to complete the worksheet without any trouble once I model it for the first time.
Hope this helps!

Hello,
I purchased this set awhile ago. When I was preparing the sets for August and September, I noticed the "Pencil Colors" response sheet has the Canadian spelling of "Colours." Is it possible for you to send me a sheet with the American spelling? Thanks!

On  June 23, 2013Alessia Albanese answered:
Hi! Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention! I didn't realize! I updated the product to include the American spelling of "Colors" on page 19. Please go back to My Purchases and re-download it. Thanks again! And happy summer!!!

I like the following directions freebie but there are alot of black lines and wont print well. Any suggestions?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 13, 2013Alessia Albanese answered:
Hi there,
Many people have purchased and uploaded this file without any probelms. Try this suggestion from TpT and if that doesn't work, I would contact TpT to let them know:
"If you purchased/downloaded a PDF and it is blurry/black lines after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!"
That way, you can prevent this from happening again.
Hope this helps! Thanks for your purchase!

On  September 2, 2012Lucia Pineda (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Alessia! (Love your name!), I was wondering how many there were and if they are focus on colors? I was thinking of getting them and making them work for my bilingual class (SPANISH) but wasn't sure if that what the focus is. I also wanted to know if you include pictures for all of them. Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 2, 2012Alessia Albanese answered:
Hi Lucia! Thank you! Yes, most of the pocket chart activities are predictable text (I am a yellow apple, I am a green apple, etc.) until the end of the year in which they may focus on various sight words and more "reading" the sentences. I have included all words, color words and pictures (b&w for easy photocopying) for all 20 activities. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for contacting me! :)

On  August 11, 2012Kay at Kindergarten Kiddos (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Alessia, I purchased your All Year Long-Pocket Chart packet and have a few questions. I was wondering if you always put the entire sentence onto a sentence strip and into the pocket chart (including the words that may be blank or missing on the students' worksheets)? For example, would you have in your pocket chart for February "This green flower is for you (along with a picture of a green flower) and then just have the students copy it directly from the pocket chart and color the picture? Does this routine remain the same throughout the year? I apologize if this is confusing. If you could get back to me and let me know how/if the pocket charts increase in difficulty and your own classroom routines, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!

On  July 4, 2012Growing Firsties Lisa Mattes (TpT Seller) asked:
Hello! I am looking at your All Year Long - Pocket Chart Fun product and am wondering if most of it is more emergent reader focussed or if it gets more difficult than the preview as the year progresses. I downloaded the preview (beach ball) and that seemed like a nice September activity for my September first graders but it would be too easy for later in the year...Thank you so much for your input!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 4, 2012Alessia Albanese answered:
Hi Lisa! My activities do progress with difficulty as the year goes on but most of them are similar to an emergent reader. Why don't you e-mail me at kindergartenteacher@rogers.com and I can send you a few pictures of the activities in the pack before you buy. I have a sale on today (20% off) so e-mail me as soon as you can and I will forward you the activities so that you can take advantage of the sale price. Hope this helps!
