These simple templates are perfect for kindergartners to begin to putting down what they know on paper whether it be drawing, labeling, or writing. Begin lessons with a shared writing/drawing then children are ready to go! I Can Do is an easy and predictable way to begin the school year for everyone including the teacher (NO-PREP, just copy and go).
All resources include 3 different fonts- choose your favorite. Also there are two different sets of templates in each with two different left margins. The narrow left margin is best if making anchor charts- maximize space for drawing. The second has a wider margin on the left if you want to make booklets giving you room to staple or bind. There are multiple choices of covers in each resource.
I Can Do ME- These ME Sentence Starters are a simple way to get your children “drawing/writing” with an easy theme that most have sufficient background knowledge to be successful – themselves! I use these instead of the traditional “About Me” booklet because it is more flexible. Rather than just fill in blanks, children can make choices about what they want to share. A great resource for the beginning of the year to help you get to know your children! There are 13 Sentence Starters in 3 different fonts.
I Can Do Colors- Colors are a simple way to get your children “drawing/writing” with an easy theme that most have sufficient background knowledge to be successful. Children simply draw 4 items for each color. This flexible resource is perfect for giving children a chance to make choices and be creative. It's not just a circle or color the objects. Designed for Kindergarten and Pre-K. Colors include red, blue, yellow, purple, orange, green, black, white, brown, pink, and gray (grey).
I Can Do the Alphabet- These Alphabet Templates/Graphic Organizers are a simple way to get your children “drawing/writing.” Children draw 4 pictures that begin with the designated letter. This flexible resource is perfect for building letter and sound sense while giving children a chance to make choices and be creative. It's not just a circle the letter this object begins with or color the items that begin with a letter. Designed for Kindergarten but could be used in Pre-K also. There is 1 page for each letter of the alphabet.
I Can Do Numbers- I Can Do Numbers is a NO-PREP resource to get your children “showing their understanding” of numbers and sets in a simple format so everyone can be successful. Children simply draw a set to represent the given number four times. This flexible resource is perfect for building number sense yet gives children a chance to make choices and be creative. It's not just count and circle the number or count and color. Designed for Kindergarten but could be used in Pre-K also. With Pre-K if you are only working with the smaller numbers, stickers would be a fun option to show the sets. Included are numbers 1 - 10.
I Can Do Shapes- This resource gets your children thinking about shapes in the environment. Children simply draw objects that look like a specific shape. On the circle page, they draw 4 circle shapes objects like a sun, a pizza, a ball, a Frisbee, a chocolate chip cookie. This flexible resource is perfect for giving children a chance to make choices and be creative. It's not just color or circle the shape. Includes circle, square, triangle, rectangle, and hexagon.
