If you’re on the hunt for Free Kindergarten Resources, this post is for you. Here’s a little sneak peek of the first round of freebies included in my new FREE RESOURCE LIBRARY!
As a busy teacher-mom, I know first hand how hard it is to juggle all the things. I created this Free Resource Library to help teachers like YOU! I hope that these resources can help alleviate some of the stress of another hard school year. Here are 15 freebies to get you started…
1. How-to Writing Mini-books Freebie
This How-to Mini-book Freebie is perfect for introducing sequence and procedural writing using the terms “first, next, then, and last.” Two versions are included. Use throughout the year with your beginner writers in kindergarten or first grade.
If you are looking for more procedural writing resources, check out my How-to / Procedural Writing Unit.
2. Number of the Day Freebie
The Number of the Day is a great way to teach number decomposition in kindergarten or first grade. This freebie includes one number decomposition page from my Number of the Day Activity Book, which includes numbers 1 to 100.
Directions: Students write the number of tens and ones and color the corresponding blocks to match. They can use a highlighter, crayon, or marker to color the tens rods and ones cubes to match the number. Next, they write an addition and subtraction number sentence. Last, students may refer to a hundreds chart to complete the grid showing one more, one less, ten less, and ten more.
3. Uppercase Letter Assessment Freebie
This Uppercase Letter Recognition Assessment Freebie includes a sample of one of the virtual assessments available in my Kindergarten Assessments Bundle. You may use this in-person or use the color-coded version to assess students virtually.
4. Number Formation Printable Freebie
Use this Number Formation Freebie as handouts, posters, or traceable sheets! In the classroom, this is a great tool to have at your math center for number writing practice all year long. It also works well for distance learning or homeschooling students. You can turn this into a “Write & Wipe” activity by laminating the page or placing it in a sheet protector. Have your students use dry-erase markers to practice number formation again and again!
5. Letter Formation Printable Freebie

7. Fine Motor Assessment Freebie
This “I Can Copy Shapes” Freebie is one of the assessments included in my Fine motor Assessments Package. This is a great tool to use as a benchmark assessment for fine motor development. I like to administer this assessment three times a year. It is amazing to see the growth in my students from the beginning to the end of the year!
8. Uppercase Letter Flash Cards Freebie
This Uppercase Letters Flash Cards Freebie is one of the sets included in my Flash Cards Bundle.
Here are some ideas for using these flash cards:
- Send a set home for students to review uppercase letter recognition.
- Flip through the cards to assess students on which uppercase letters they know.
- Place letters in a pocket chart in random order to practice letter identification with your students.
- Laminate a set. Have students trace over the letters to practice handwriting.
9. Birthday Cards and Crowns Freebie
This Birthday Cards and Crown FREEBIE is all you need to make birthdays special in your classroom.
Here’s how I use this resource in my Kindergarten:
- Copy a stack of birthday cards double-sided, fold the cards in half, and keep them on hand in a basket. I always make sure I have enough for the month copied.
- When students come in, they create birthday cards for the birthday student for morning work.
- I give a plastic bag to the birthday student to collect the cards.
- While the class is making cards, the birthday student may cut out color the crown. Add a sentence strip for a headband.
- After the kids are done with the cards, we sing “Happy Birthday” and do the Kidz Bop Birthday Dance.
10. Spring Journal Writing Prompt Freebie
This Spring Writing Prompt Freebie is perfect for emerging writers in kindergarten and first grade. Have your students complete the first sentence. Then, encourage the children to write a second and even a third sentence if they can.
The Writing Checklist is helpful for keeping your learners on track!
This FREEBIE is one of the pages you can find in my March monthly journal package. If you like this freebie, you might also like my Writing Journal Bundle for the Entire Year!
My Monthly Journals have been featured in the TPT Blog. They have helped so many kindergarten and first grade teachers around the world to make writing fun, engaging, and no prep for the teacher! You can read more on my website about how I use these journals in the classroom.

Simply type your students’ names, print onto colored card stock, and have your students decorate.
14. 100th Day Gumball Machine Freebie
