End of the Year with Oriental Trading

I can't believe we only have a few weeks left of school.  This year has flown by!  I am gearing up for the end of the year with some fun end of the year gifts!  My gifts usually consist of some chalk and I call it good but thanks to Oriental Trading they have so many fun little gifts to give to your kiddos.
Check out everything I'm giving out below!
I started with finding these bright colored tote bags.  They are a pretty big size and I am putting all their goodies inside.
These are the cutest mini beach balls.  They came in a pack of 25!  They are 20% off right now too!  These would also be perfect for Beach Day or Hawaiian day at your school! 
These would be perfect for Beach Day too!  These are kid sized sunglasses with cute fish printed on them.  I am thinking about giving these to my kiddos early to wear on our trip to the zoo!
No end of the year gift is complete without some tropical bubbles.  These are the perfect size and come in these four bottle colors!
I bought this bracelet making kit also.  I plan on having each kiddos in my room pick a friend and make a bracelet for them.  This way each little one has a present from a friend to remind them about their fun year in kindergarten!

Oriental Trading- Mother's Day Edition

Mother's Day is right around the corner (May 14th) and if you are like me you may wait until the last minute and search for something on Pinterest.  Well, STOP!  I have what you need right here and you can even get FREE shipping plus some other great coupons.
Oriental Trading has so many Mother's Day crafts and activities for your class to do.  I want to show you the treats I got that my class will be making for their moms!
Nothing says Mother's Day like a cute picture and picture frame.  Oriental Trading has many different kinds from foam stickers to wood!  My kiddos will be making these cute Happy Mother's Day frames.

These frames are my favorite because they do not require glue.  They are all stickers :)
Along with the frames, my kiddos will be decorating flower pots.
To decorate our pots I got this 10 pack of paints!  The colors are so vibrant and the quality is great!
I also got these adhesive colored jewels that my kiddos can stick all over their pots.  I know every mom loves some jewels :)

I hope you found some things you can use with your kiddos this Mother's Day!

Oriental Trading- Valentine's Day

Oriental Trading has sent me some more goodies to make your Valentine's Day party even better!
Make sure to check out all the Valentine's goodies they have to offer by clicking HERE!
Now, check out some of the things they have sent me.  A big part of our V-Day activities is our card exchange.  Which means we need to make some cute Valentine bags.
I got these great white craft bags.  They are the perfect size for all those cards.

I am going to use these heart shaped doilies to write each kiddos' name on then we are going to decorate using some other great crafting materials!

I got some self-adhesive foam pieces to decorate the bags.

I also got some Valentine stampers too!  There are about 50 in a pack, so I plan on letting my kiddos take one home after we finish decorating!

Oriental Trading has a lot of cute V-Day cards too!  I grabbed these cute superhero cards that come with a bracelet!

A fun V-Day craft idea is to take these cute heart shaped pony beads and stringing them on a pipe cleaner to make a bracelet.  Challenge your kiddos to make a pattern out of it.

The day after Valentine's Day is our 100th Day!  Yes, this will be a crazy but fun week!

Oriental Trading has some fun 100th Day supplies!  I found these great certificates and pencils to hand out on our 100th Day!

I hope you found some goodies to use in your classroom this Valentine's Day! :)

Oriental Trading-Holiday Edition

I'm back to share some fun holiday ideas from Oriental Trading!  If you are like me, you have a holiday party before the long winter break.  The kindergarten team at my school picks an activity and the different kinder rooms rotate through each room.  This year Oriental Trading sent me some FUN holiday activities, games, and prizes!  Let's just say this year's holiday party will be the best one yet!
Every year my kiddos make a gift for their parents.  This year I got these fun winter frames!  Each frame comes individually wrapped with all the pieces needed to complete.  We will take pictures that last week of school and I will add that to each frame!  Click HERE to find other fun Christmas crafts Oriental Trading has.
Like I said before each kindergarten room picks an activity to do.  This year I chose to have games!  When each class comes in, they will rotate between each of these games below!

I got a huge bag of these mini polar bear erasers.  I am going to hand these out as prizes for playing the games.
 The polar bear finger puppets and snowman pencils I will add the the Christmas gift bag I am giving each kiddo in my class!  I had the Jungle Animal finger puppets in my prize box and my kiddos LOVED them!
Oriental Trading has so much to offer for your Christmas and holiday parties!  Hopefully you found something you can use!

CVC Lights-CVC worksheet FREEBIE

It has been awhile!  We are working on short vowels in phonics, so I created a quick FREEBIE and decided to share it with you!

Perfect practice during this holiday season!  Each picture has three light bulbs.  Your kiddo will write the CVC word in the light bulbs, using one light bulb for each letter.
