I’m excited to share my latest co-creation with you is published! The value of this unit is incredible based on real, practical classroom use. It’s a unit that covers all areas – it’s already differentiated and ready to print. What is it? It’s the first unit in the “Math and Literacy Centers + Small Group Materials” series called “Pirates.”
It was created and based on my favorite “go-to” activities. It truly is the compilation of the best parts of my teaching day. You’ll be able use items whole group, in literacy centers and small group instruction for reading, writing and math.
This unit was designed to meet these goals:
- Planned so you could potentially use it at almost any point in the school year. You can do the theme when it suits you!
- Good fit for differentiation of kindergarten levels.
- Contain editable pieces to help you meet your own students’ needs.
- Give material to supplement 1+ weeks of teaching when using a whole and small group format (or centers/stations).
- Easily used in addition to curriculum you already use in your classroom.
Each of the pieces in this unit are connected by a theme and in this case… Arrrgh, Matey – Pirates be the theme! Here are some sneak peek photos to give you a glimpse into 3 of the activities from the 12 included. Now Available!

Here is what our expert kindergarten teacher-testers had to say:
I love that you included the labels – nice touch! It’s also nice to have editable pieces so that you can customize the games. Especially if you are in a district like mine where the sight words are so specific to the district and not one of the major lists.”
“I thought the 10 frames search was going to be too difficult for kids, but I took it into school today and had a couple of my kids try – the ultimate testers. They were able to complete the activity.”
“…for me, the games and activities could be used for several experiences/centers in my class because we often repeat activities for several weeks. The format follows other products you have created, and this is changing the “theme” but keeping students at a level of comfort to meet success independently since they repeat the activities in different “themes.”
