My crazy dog, Sally, woke me up this morning at 5:00 this morning for no apparent reason and I just couldn't get back to sleep. So, I took a little nap this afternoon. On the screen porch. With the ceiling fan on. Such a summertime treat - it was lovely! Sally thought so, too!
Now I'm wide awake and working on some school stuff. It's so important to get a quick handle on the skills and abilities of your new kids right away, but who wants to spend the first few days of kindergarten doing assessment? I came up with a cute way to quickly assess the kids’ cutting, gluing, coloring & name recognition skills on the first day of school without it feeling like assessment. The kids need to cut out the mixed up letters in their names and paste them onto their paper in the right order. (There's an editable name template for you to type your kids' mixed up names into.) As they work, you can quickly fill out the skills checklist that’s included. Voila! A quick peek at what your new gang of kiddos can do. The adorable kid clip art is from Cara's Clips - so cute!
