I am always so excited (and so nervous) during the back to school season!
There is always so much to do that it is easy to get overwhelmed.
I have put together this page for YOU - the kindergarten teacher that has an endless to-do list.
I am sharing a ton of ideas and FREEBIES with you to help you get your school year off to a great start.
Many of these materials are available in my Exclusive Freebie Library that you can access at the end of this page.
Kindergarten Curriculum Map
I am such a planner, which can be comical because I end up changing my plans so often I don't know why I feel the need to be so thoroughly planned and prepared. Alas... I do! So I am excited that I finally had the time to put together this FREE Kindergarten curriculum map.
We follow the Common Core Standards, and I map how how I teach reading, writing, language, math, sight words, etc. for each month. Plus, I provide links to FREEBIES, activities and lessons that you can use with your students each month.
Please note - this is only an overview and you'll need to supplement where you see fit. I will be adding additional activities throughout the year.
***August, September, October and November are currently uploaded. Other months will be added soon!***
These curriculum maps are FREE for email subscribers in my Exclusive Freebie Library!

FREE First Day of Kindergarten Award
How adorable are these first day of Kindergarten awards?!
I love sending these home on the first day of school so they leave feeling excited, proud and successful. I also like that the first note they hand their parents is positive! Every parent is anxious to hear how their kiddo did on the first day of school. This is a great way to start building a strong rapport with your students and their parents.
Have a great first day of kindergarten!
Kindergarten Goals Chart and Awards
Have you seen this awesome FREE kindergarten goals chart?! It is also in my Exclusive FREEBIE Library.
This simple poster literally changed my teaching life! Students and parents love it too, because it shows them exactly what we are working towards all year in kindergarten. Plus there are adorable awards that go with each goal, and students are thrilled to color their stars when they reach a goal.
