Friday Freebie - New Year's Sequencing


Happy Friday! I hope that you had a great Christmas, but the fun isn't over yet! It's time to get ready for new year!

It's always really hard to find New Year's activities that are truly appropriate for preschoolers.  They don't really understand resolutions, nor do they completely get the concept of a year, or time for that matter.

This product is completely appropriate, and works on building some really important skills.  This Size Sequencing Set for the new year is from Color Me Kinder and includes new year-themed pictures in a number of different sizes that children can practice putting in order according to size.  Each image comes in color and in black and white so children can color them in if they want.

Because it is so difficult to find materials for this time of year that are really appropriate for this age group, I want to share a few more with you.


I just put together this What is a Year set as I was thinking about how to explain what a year is to my own students.  It includes a ring book that explains that a year is 12 months, a month is 4 weeks, a week is seven days, etc. It also has a wipe off card set where they can fill in the numbers from the ring book, a dice so that they can match the pictures to the words, and vocabulary cards, to help them become familiar with each of the time-related terms.

I also have a classroom decoration set for New Year's - which would be a fun dramatic play center!


And, of course, New Year vocabulary cards to help teach party-related vocabulary.


Check out some of these awesome products as you plan for your own New Year Celebrations - but don't you dare think about school yet, it's not allowed!
