My First "Back to School" Purchases for My New First Graders!

About Me

My photo
Welcome! I hope to use this blog to share some of the amazing things my class and school does to make learning fun! I have been teaching for 15 years already! I started teaching 3rd grade in a Parochial School, then I was hired to teach 1st grade for three years, was moved to 5th grade for 2 years, and then came back to 1st grade in the district where I attended school. I love that I'm able to give back the the school district that guided me to become the teacher I am today! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, certified 1-8; a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction; and my Administrator License Pre-K-12.

Spin and Spell

Michelle over at Michelle's Charm World created these amazing spellers!  I printed off her post and headed to the nuts and bolts aisle at Home Depot so that I could create my own!  I decided to start simple so I started with our short a word families:

I plan on using these for my Word Work learning activities.  The kiddos will be expected to write and then illustrate each word they find on the speller.

Here's the paper I whipped up for the kiddos to record their words:  Spin and Spell Worksheet

If you don't already follow Michelle, you just might want to take a peek!  She has some really cool stuff on her blog!  :)
