Free Wearable Learning

Hola! We're Nicole and Eliceo Sanchez from and we feel honored to be a part of this new collaborative kindergarten blog. Since we began the journey of designing this blog and recruiting bloggers to team up with us, we have met so many talented teacher authors along the way. Today we want to take a moment to introduce ourselves and share a free sample that we designed that you can use with your students. 

Let's start by telling you a little bit about ourselves. We currently live in Yucatan, Mexico, with our two kids, dog, adopted cats, about 200 exotic chickens, a few peacocks and a quickly growing number of rabbits. We are both stay-at-home parents and work out of the home while our kids are at school. We also do occasional volunteer team-teaching at nearby schools. We never pictured our life looking like this. In fact we usually like to plan everything in advance, and we can tell you, this is nothing like we planned. So how did this happen? Click to read more about "Our Story." 

When we're teaching, we love to incorporate hands-on "wearable learning." It's a great way to boost excitement about a topic plus it helps motivate students to do their best work as they are making something that they will get to proudly wear.

We use crowns and bracelets to teach the alphabet,

we use bracelets to teach phonics,

we use bracelets to teach math concepts,

we use crowns to teach about diverse holidays,

and... we use bracelets to teach kids about bullying.

Today, for Sample Sunday, we want to share a sample of some of our bracelets with you. They're super easy to use in the classroom, and my students always love them! All you need to do is print out the templates, cut them apart into strips and let the fun begin! Students will have fun tracing the letters, number or shapes and coloring the graphics. Then they will get to wear them proudly throughout the day. Another great thing about them is that they help communicate with parents what their kids are learning at school as they will see them wearing them home in the afternoon.

We hope you enjoy these bracelets and look forward to your feedback, and as always, happy teaching!
