A common core bear themed unit for math and reading suitable for kindergarten. This unit allows students flexibility to draw, write, label, and show their skills where they are. I have provide many instructions and examples as to how I have used these types of things in the classroom and extensions of the activities or how to introduce the activities. The printables have more than one use, which makes them a great part of a teacher's file.
The math portion includes journaling for 1-10. The journaling, or math stories, can be used to introduce or reinforce sharing information, talking to neighbors and showing many ways to work problems. They are simple 1-10, again, but are difficult in nature due to the problem solving skills that are required of Kindergarten students under the new common core curriculum. Great conversation or discussion pieces!
All credits are given at the end of the presentation.
