Themed Resources

Since kindergarten programming is often dependent on themes, we have collected and created themed resources based on some of the most popular SPS kindergarten themes.

GENERAL RESOURCES

More advanced resources (Grade 1)

  • Handwriting/Printing Worksheet Maker - This is an awesome tool! Make your students feel important by custom making printing sheets with their name on them (or words about them). You could custom create a sheet for each child in no time at all and photocopy it to mark their progress with printing throughout the year.
  • My name is .... make your own customized (with their name) printing sheets for students.
  • The Reading Lady - Reader's Theatre Scripts

READING READINESS

  • Early Readers - Starfall Online Stories - These stories operate much like the LeapPad readers in that you can click on any word and have it read to you, and in some cases, sounded out.
  • I'm Reading - Starfall's Library. Some of the stories allow you to print the story after you are done in the format of a follow up activity. Some of the plays allow you to print the script and an activity to use as a follow up to the online adventure.
  • Create A Reader : This site has many interactive games for early reading readiness skills.
  • Little Fingers Story Books (voice and animated)

ALPHABET & NUMBERS

  • Starfall - Mini movies and activities for each letter of the alphabet. This site is perfect to use with one computer in the classroom. Consider the following: each morning/week, gather round (or use a projector) and select the letter to study. Let the star student do the online activities associated with each lesson. Easy to integrate into much of what you already do while introducing students to computers at the same time! These are quick lessons but very well done and you can replay them several times. (Starfall.com ABC Printouts - A student activity sheet for each letter of the alphabet that is related to the movies and activities in the movies.)
  • ABC's - A great place to begin gathering ideas for your study of the alphabet! - this site offers great ideas for each letter of the alphabet.
  • Learn to write your ABC's using this letter guide and virtual writing pad.
  • Letter and Number (Colouring) Printables from PBS
  • Jan Brett's Alphabet Book: Her art work makes this a worthy download. You need to print one page at a time but then you can make copies. Suggestion: Now you can publish your very own coloring book for your children that will spell their name and their age. Click on each letter you want to print, and it will enlarge. Then select print. You can print on laser or inkjet.
