End of the Year Memory Book

30 May 2016
I have a month left of school and I cannot wait to put together this End of the Year Memory Book with my students.  I cannot believe how the year flew by! 

To give you a better idea of what is included in the packet and what is "editable," I have taken screen shots of the pages and displayed them below. Just click any of the images to check out the packet on Teachers Pay Teachers. 













I hope you check out this packet on TpT.  If you are going to share with your grade, remember to purchase multiple licenses.   As always, feel free to pin the images!

For those of you who loop with your class, I have another version of an End of the Year Memory book.  This one has quotes on the pages.

Here are some great end of the year read alouds:



Happy End of the Year!!!  Almost there!!!


Mother's Day Freebies and More!

28 April 2016
I thought I would take time to put together a post of some of my Mother's Day freebies and more.  As always feel free to pin and click on the images to check out the packets on TpT.

I decided my "Mom, I love you to pieces." card needed a facelift.  I updated it and you can continue to download it for free. 




I also have this handprint card in my store for free:



If you are looking for a gift for your students to make their mother's or special person, check out this brand new packet.










Here is a free Homework Pass but the twist is that is for the mother.  My colleague suggested a few years back that we give moms the week off from H.W. the week before Mother's Day.   We all agreed it was a great idea.  We know how hard it is to get children to do their homework!  I made this little Mother's Day Homework Pass freebie if you would like to join in our tradition. 

Thanks for stopping by!   I hope you find some inspiration for honoring Mother's Day with your students.  



Letter Writing

16 April 2016


In my first grade classroom, we have been working on our letter writing skills.  The students are having a blast!   

We start our unit with an intro to letter writing with the adorable book, Please, Write Back.  I let the students choose to write to whoever they want.  Some of my sweeties, chose to write to me. 


We also learned about persuasive letter writing through Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type  and Giggle, Giggle, Quack.




Another favorite series for persuasive letter writing is the I Wanna Iguana, I Wanna New Room, and I Wanna Go Home books by Karen Kaufman Orloff.  My students and I love to laugh and these books deliver the laughs!



If you want to continue the laughter and the persuasive letter writing, check out The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home.



This year we did not get to do our Tooth Fairy letters but here are photos from years past. 




I encourage you to check out my Letter Writing resource on TpT for more ideas and letter writing themed printables.   I thoroughly enjoy teaching this unit.


I also have this freebie for you.   Just click to download from Google Drive.

Here are the links to a few of the many letter writing themed books I utilize:
