Down at the Pond – Printable Packet for Kindergarten-First Grade

I have several learning packets for 1st-3rd (or 4th!) graders here at Mama’s Learning Corner.  You’ll find a variety of packets from Maps & the Globe to Ancient Rome to Birds to Plants & Flowers and more.

(Just a side note:  These packets were once part of the Members Only section here at Mama’s Learning Corner.  That area is now discontinued and packets can be purchased individually.)

And while y’all seem to love what those packets contain, a frequent request from readers is for a Kindergarten-First Grade packet.  You would like activities geared towards those kiddos that aren’t as far along with reading and writing.

So I’m thrilled that the first packet for this age & skill level is finally finished!

  1. I love pond printables! Pinning for sure!

  2. Thank you for the unit for the younger ages. My small one is on the tail end of pre-school and getting ready to plow straight into kindergarten. So this fits perfectly

    • Nicole, I’m so glad you could use these with your own children! The printables for the K-1st set have been so popular, so there will be many more to come!

      Thank you for stopping by! :)

  3. Thanks so much for these! I just subscribed to your emails :) Printing these off in Cambodia and hoping we can find a pond to explore :)
