I love Christmas at Epcot. Mariachi Cobre and their accompanying dancers are absolutely amazing at anytime of the year. Their special Christmas performance for Fiesta Navidad and Los Posadas show is a treat indeed. It is entertaining and educational. Children and adults alike enjoy the music and learn about the tradition of Las Posadas, the piñata, and the legend of the poinsettia. The festive garments worn by the dancers are beautiful. I enjoy when they invite guest children to participate in their Las Posadas re-enactment. They conclude with a rousing rendition of Feliz Navidad inviting the guests to participate.
Here are some books about Las Posadas you may enjoy sharing with your little learners. (Affiliate links are provided for your convenience. )
This FREE number sense resource provides an inviting Christmas clip card math center for little learners to practice using ten frames to determine quantities to 20. Great for morning tubs, early finishers, informal assessment, and take home practice!
I recently observed my 5th Tpt-Versary. Many things have happened in my life since I began my Teachers Pay Teachers Journey. Many of you are close to me and know that some of these events have been wonderful, some have been life-altering, and some have been heartbreaking. Through it all, I have been blessed by your support, feedback, and purchases.
Thank you for the support you have shown me over the years. Because of you, I have enjoyed this amazing journey over the past 5 years. I am thankful for all of you and want to offer a FREEBIE to show my appreciation.
This versatile number sense resource offers your little learners a variety of fun and engaging ways to practice numerals to 20. The apple themed cards can be used as matching tasks or as ordering tasks. These mental math activities may be used at any time during the year, but also complement autumn/fall, school, farm, harvest, Back to School, or Johnny Appleseed themes. They are a great follow up activity for a farm, cider mill, or apple orchard field trip.
I hope you and your learners enjoy these activities.
I am excited to share that two Kamp Kindergarten resources are featured in this Teachers Pay Teachers Resource Round-Up. Free and priced resources are included from Kamp Kindergarten and other teacher/authors. Check them out!
I blogged at the Primary Peach about one of the most respected bridge builders of the south in the 19th century. I have always been fascinated by Horace King’s accomplishments and thoroughly enjoyed researching about his life and his works.
I am excited to announce that I have posted the 400th resource on TpT for Kamp Kindergarten. Next month also marks my 4th TpT-versary. To celebrate the occasion, I want to offer something to my followers and buyers to show my appreciation.
Put adhesive magnetic circles on back of the puzzles to use as a magnetic activity on a dollar store cookie sheet.
These puzzles are great for morning tubs, early finishers, math centers, and take home practice.
Thank you for your purchases, support, and feedback. I appreciate each and everyone of you. Without you, I would not have had this amazing journey. I hope to continue to grow and learn new things to continue to bring you engaging developmentally appropriate activities to share with your learners. I hope you and your little friends enjoy these puzzles.
