I have taught kindergarten for 12 years. I enjoy creating my own lessons and love sharing with other teachers. I also like to create new smart notebook lessons and love getting new ideas for using the smartboard with kinders!
I found a great number sense game for kinders on the Teaching Channel! It is called Mingle and Count. The students mingle around the room until the teacher calls out a number. The students have to form groups of that number. Then the teacher and children check each group. Any students that are left over without a group are assigned a special way to mingle, such as hopping like a bunny or flapping their arms like a bird. In the video the teacher did this with the numbers 2,3,4 and 5. I cannot believe that I forgot about the Teaching Channel and I haven't been on it in a while. I found so many great ideas just now!
