1-2-3 Come Park It With Me!
If you do a unit on transportation, you'll definitely want to include "Park It!" in your lessons.
The original idea for the parking lot, came from a home-schooling mom over at "I can teach my child", who made one out of tape for her sons. Click on the link to check out her wonderful site.
I wanted to make this easier, and something you could put away, so I designed the template. I used traceable letters so children could also practice writing with dry erase markers. They can trace the top letter, park their car, and then write the letter(s) under their vehicle.
The Dollar Store sells small cars 6 in a pack. You can also pick them up at garage sales any where from a dime to 25 cents.
Instead of tape, I used tough-stick colored dots. Don't get garage sale ones, because they will peel off easily. For an even more professional look, watch for all of those 40% off coupons from Hobby Lobby, JoAnne Fabrics & Michaels, to buy stickers that already have the letters written on them!

1-2-3 Come Practice Writing Letters With Me!
Just because a child can write a letter, does not mean they are forming it in the correct way.
I was extremely excited to purchase a font that shows arrows, that students can follow, as they trace letters. By using these practice sheets everyday, for the first few weeks of school, you will help your students learn correct letter formation in a quick, easy and fun way.
Allow them to choose a different color highlighter or crayon each day, or for each line. These sheets work well for a simple Daily 5 activity too.
I've also designed a page you can send home to parents, so they can help a struggling child, or reinforce the lessons practiced in school. Many districts require homework for kinders and this is an effective thing to send home that parents can easily do.
