Field Trip Shirts
Each Kindergarten class orders its own field trip shirts. Each class is a different color so that a teacher can easily identify her class on a trip. The tee-shirts are kept at school to make sure they are worn on field trip days and then sent home after the last field trip to keep. What I love about the shirts is that on the back are 100 sight words! As children are waiting in line they can look on the shirt of the child in front of them as the teachers play games - Find the word that rhymes with fan (can). Find a word that means look (see). Find a word that is the opposite of before (after). When the shirts go home for the summer, parents have a mini-Skills block - a great list of words to practice over the summer to get ready for first grade! Now this is a GREAT idea!
