I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 over the past 24 years. Although First Grade which is where my heart lives, I am continuing my adventure with 5th graders who need some extra help, as well as part-time Literacy Coach this year. Wish me luck! I am honored that you are here!
Here's a new game to practice synonyms. I took these words form the CRCT First Grade study guide. If you don't know what that is, it is the state test that we give in Georgia. As everyone gets ready to take their own annual tests, I thought I would share. ENJOY!
Be sure to check it out because that is where I posted the beginning of my rounding activities. I am continuing it today with a new game for rounding practice. Just add game markers and you are good to go! ENJOY!!
I am just so excited to have 100 followers of my blog!! I just love sharing with other teachers and helping them with their students in my own little way. My goal was to have 100 followers by Spring Break which is still a week and a half away. If you don't know me, I'm a VERY goal oriented person.
Now for my first GIVEAWAY.....
YOU PICK THE THEME, YOU PICK THE SKILL!
Five LUCKY people will win a NEW game designed just for them and their students. It doesn't have to be just for First Grade either. Of course, the rest of us will also share in their prize next week when I post a new game each day for the winners.

Here is another game with a space theme to practice reading the Second 100 Fry Words. This time we are in a Race to the Stars to read the most words. In the end, EVERYONE wins because EVERYONE reads! ENJOY!!
Here's a new game that was created by request! This is another fun way to practice reading the First 100 Fry words by racing to the moon. All you need are game markers, game cards, and game boards. ENJOY!!
This is a race game to with a St. Patrick's Day theme to practice addition skills. This game is super easy to get ready and add to your math tubs. Just print, laminate, cut, and add game markers. I have some other games similar to this that my students love to play. They love the idea of a race!
Here are the patterns to make the leprechaun. I have also include a glyph poster so that you can write your own class' name on it. I hope your students enjoy making the leprechauns as much as mine did!
We made Leprechauns today to go with a new glyph. They are so cute! I left my patterns at school so I will have to post them this weekend. My favorite part is the color of the buttons. Check them out...
I made this St. Patrick's Day game so we could continue practicing our doubles. There are 3 different versions to go with 3 different types of die--6 sided, 8 sided, and 10 sided. This game is just like the Valentine's game I posted last month covering up doubles using two-sided counters. My students love using the different types of dice!
