Hey there! Today I thought I would take part in the
Fun right? Well here are a few of the things I am thankful for…
This little girl is my heart. I am lucky that she calls me momma. I love her to pieces. Still can’t believe that she is 8.
Good times with my girl. Our evenings are busy. I am always correcting, creating, or trying to get organized for the next school day as well as trying to create fun times with Alyson. This photo captures one day this week when she insisted on a game of headbands. What a great choice.
My little photography business. It has blessed me in so many ways. Capturing memories for families, is completely awesome. (Click the photo to take a look).
My blog. I have blogged over here for over 5 years. (Not all posts are there). And I love that I can glance back to see what we were doing at any given time of year.
And of course, ALL the teacher blogs out there. They have inspired me in many ways. Thank YOU!
Thanks for stopping in!

Hey there! I am glad to see I have some new followers and so many have enjoyed my freebie. I finally finished my Three Pigs Unit. Every year we use this story along with our unit on Homes and Family. I have struggled for years trying to find some meaningful activities to do with the kiddos. So, I created some! Eventually, I hope to add to this unit, so make sure to follow my store so I can send you updates.
Just click on the photo to go to my store!
Have a wonderful Tuesday! I love three day weekends!

Hey there! I know I am sporadic posting here, but the truth is, I can’t do everything. But I always try. Isn’t that always the way with teachers? Well, last month I added my own Question of the Day packet to TPT. I did not originally think of this idea. I piggy-backed off of First Grade Blue Skies QOTD packet. As I grew more familiar with it, I found that I would add my own seasonal QOTD, and eventually, it just worked itself into a packet.
Since I am quite late with November, I thought that I would give this one as a freebie. They are made in no particular order, you can decide what’s best for your class.
Anyhow, click on the picture to download your copy.
I would love if you could follow me in my TPT store!
That’s all for today!! Have a great Thursday!

Happy weekend! This weekend has FLOWN by. I have had 2 photoshoots (1 more to go), and little time for myself. But I’ll take it! I did create this October word of the day packet. I have been using First Grade Blue Skies packet for 2 years now, and I LOVE it! My kiddos do too! You may remember my question of the day door? If not, here it is again, your welcome.
Recently, I have been adding my questions in to go with the month. It was really nothing fancy, I would write it on a paper and slip it in. Well. I decided to finally type some up to save myself some time.
So…here it is incase you might want to add them to your daily routine too. Just click the picture and head on over to my TPT store.

So, I have a few more things in the shop today. Yay! Finally getting into the groove of creating these things (that I would've anyway), and adding them to my store without it taking an hour.
Here is what I have so far.
This first one is a minibook that I put together for my kiddos at the beginning of the year. I revamped it a little this year. Click on over to my store to get yours.

I want to start by sharing where I have been holed up for the past 2 days. With my trusty sidekick, of course.
Our school was used for Special Ed summer school. Mine was one of the classrooms that was used. Everything was just as I'd left it. Thank you! It is so hard to let others in my class to use without me there, but it is part of the job and I am happy to do my part.
Back to work...

A little about me. I am a First grade teacher that is has been blogging for the past 5 years. I am a huge crafter, photographer, and family girl. I love to spending time with my daughter, and take tons of photos of her. I also have an obsession making thinks extremely fun and cute for my little firsties.
I have been inspired in so may ways by the teachers over at TPT and hope to so the same for others. I have (finally) put together my first product and it's FREE!
I have long used student dictionaries in my classroom. There was one year that I simply forgot to copy them off for my class, and let me tell you, I remembered it as soon as the first kiddo said, "How do you spell..." So, I now remember to copy them right away. I changed it up from previous years, and this is my new and improved student dictionary.
