Leapfrog videos are great, along with Starfall.com and Literactive.com. My K class loved those last year and they have helped to teach my 4 year old to read.

I love the interactive web site Starfall.com. Also Crayola.com has lot's of shared lesson plans with art projects. I LOVE Intellitools Classroom Suites because several exceptionalities can be included and you can individualize fun lessons. You can download a 30-day free trial from their web site

Hi! I started out teaching Kindergarten because I have a Masters in Early Childhood Education. I have since progressed to 6th grade. My best friend still teaches K so she and I have lots of materials. Let me know what you are looking for and maybe we can send some things your way. Send a message to my facebook account for a quicker reply :)

Quoting amy:

I'm a kindergarten teacher too. I teach a full-day kindergarten in Devore, CA. I find that the most important thing is to push the kids as far as they can go academically, with our high standards. I update the parents on what they know, send home flash cards w/ letters, words, and numbers.. I expect a lot from them. Letter Factory by Leap Frog(DVD) is great for teaching letters and sounds. Anyways.. use the standards as the minimum.. not the goal. ;)



I am a first year pre-k teacher (but my eleventh year teaching) and I use the Letter Factory by Leap Frog too. It is a must have!! My 4 year olds already know their letters and sounds and its only October. We are able to do so much more b/c they already know them!! I agree with you about the standards being the minimum and not the goal. Some days I think my students haven't listened to anything I've tried to teach them and then one of their parents tell me that their child came home and told them everything that I taught them that day. It's a great feeling!!
