Spring Is In The Air!

Spring Is In The Air! 



What a great way to ring in the spring season while integrating science, technology, reading, writing, and collaboration. This interactive brochure gives students a fun and interactive way to engage with non-fiction text. You can find this in my TPT store by clicking on this link: 


Do you want to bring some creativity into your classroom?
This is a fun way to do just that. 
Students will learn about the ant life cycle, read non-fiction text, and learn how to use non-fiction text features. This little creativity can be purchased in my TPT store: 


I was asked to contribute to a bundle deal that raises money for Autism Awareness so of course I accepted. If you want to purchase this bundle deal, I have included my Pet Rabbit Interactive Brochure to this cause.
You can donate here: 



Another great way to teach life cycles and non-fiction text features! 
This time it is BEE themed.

Easter and Spring Crafts

So I am trying to plan some fun activities for Easter and Spring.

I have been collecting milk jugs and toilet paper rolls. 

This is what I have in mind.



Then I am going to let the kids make butterfly wings out of coffee filters and markers.

For the milk jugs, I am trying to make an Easter basket for each of my kiddos. 
It will look something like this...

My Classroom

My Classroom
Each day my students take a timed math test to test their fact fluency. We are using a free app for iPads called: Timed Test Free.  I use a recording sheet to document scores for the whole class. I also give Skittles for those who increase their scores, or at least maintain their score from the day before.
I have seen a HUGE improvement in their addition fluency skills.

St. Patrick's Day Is Almost Here


Look what I just got in the mail! 
Thank you, First Grade Blue Skies for introducing me to this little guy.
I cannot wait to read this book and have fun with our own little classroom leprechaun.


St. Patrick's Day Is Almost Here

I am working on getting ready to plan for St. Patrick's Day. 
I have been working on some new products. These are great to enrich your first graders or help your second graders learn how to add two digit numbers with regrouping.
