My first 1st grade creation!

Well, here it is.  My first item created for my first grade classroom.  I took all of our first grade high frequency words and make word work sheet for each week.  Students trace the word, write, stamp and then glue. Easy peasy.  Simple and easy for kids to do every week as the words change.  I also created a sheet so you can change the words every week.  It's editable if you open it with power point.  Click on picture to take you to my TPT store.

Yup, it's that day that comes once a year!  MY BIRTHDAY!  I love birthdays!  I am treating myself to a girls day.  My bestie and I are going shopping, to lunch and getting a massage I'm so excited!! 
So what's in it for you! I freebie and a sale!!  YAY!  Seems like a great gift! 
Well, have fun and enjoy the sale it'll only last two days! 

Spin to win Freebie- practice the words mom and dad with this freebie.  Students just take a paperclip and hold it with a pencil in the middle of the circle.  Students flick it and wherever it stops they write that word in a column.  Whichever column gets to the top first wins.  The first time students just trace the word.  I also included a blank spin to win so you can make your own game with two words you are practicing!  Students love it!  Laminate it and play over and over.

Kindergarten Conference 2013

I'm here in KEARNEY!!  I'm having a great time at the Kindergarten Conference.  After being asked to present the past three years, I finally made it work this year.  My first time presenting outside of my district.  I think I pasted.  I went a little fast and need to learn to pace myself a little better but overall I feel that it went well.
For those of you that couldn't join in the fun.  I will post my handouts and power point.  I presented on Guided Math.  I newfound love of mine. Much of what I know I learn from the book Guided Math by Laney Sammons. Click on the picture of get your copy from Amazon.
 I love how the kids are so independent and I can reach them all at their level.  Is it the best way to DIFFERENTIATE math!!  We do this so well with guided reading and not so well with math. 

Click on the picture to get to my handouts! 
We did a short little make and take with my number ladders.  It is in the end of the handouts!  Print these on cardstock and make for the whole class. These are super cute, easy to make,  and really helps kids get a firm grasp on addition and subtraction.
And here is the power point.  I tried to put pictures of some brain boxes and games that I use in my classroom. If you have questions let me know.
