This blog was set up for me to easily share the items I’ve created. You will find that they are primarily primary activities with a focus on first grade. They are all PDFs, just click, and print. If you need any other directions, just let me know 🙂
I hope that you find this useful and that your students enjoy the activities.
My background: After one year teaching 3, 4, and 5 grade writing, I realized that I am a primary teacher. I taught K, 1, and 2 reading for 3 1/2 years (through Project CHILD). In the middle of last year, I made a hard decision to switch schools and focus on first grade (my first time with all subjects). I LOVE my new position and first grade. The school I am at now, Oneco Elementary in Bradenton, FL, has done the best job at educating their teachers through book studies and other opportunities. I love learning and I’m excited that it is promoted so heavily. My other job is as a freelance writer for The Mailbox- First Grade.
This (the blog) all started because I like to share but also because I feel that at times teachers can be protective of their ideas. There has been so many times that I share endlessly to get nothing in return. Also, I have spent hours on the internet looking for quality work that will keep my students engaged and the results aren’t alway impressive.
I really love Beth Newingham, Laura Candler and Kelly’s Kindergarten…they helped me survive my first couple years.
