In my classroom we do center based learning. That means that a skill will be taught to them in a small group setting, then they are grouped and sent out to apply the skills being taught in a verity of different experiences. One of our main goals in kindergarten is that all the students will know all their letters and sounds well enough to sound out words when they are reading and writing. As simple as it sounds it is a skill that needs to be practiced many times. For some kids it will take around 100 repetitions of one skill before they begin to truly retain it. That's why the alphabet activities like the alphabet pops and the "I know my alphabet" learning mats will be useful. If I'm having them practice the same skill 100 times I need to find new and effective ways to present it so they don't lose engagement. It the same with math skills like counting. The math thinking mats and pocket chart games will provide them with fun and different ways to count and keep track of what and how they counted.
