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.

Blogs I Love!

Melody Monday

Happy Monday!
It's going to be a long day today! We have our second round of student-led conferences tonight and during the day our entire grade level is doing a Valentine Switcheroo. We're rotating our classrooms through each first grade classroom for some Valentine Day fun! Before I hit the road, I wanted to make sure I share another one of our favorite tunes we listen to in our classroom.

Secret Agent 23 Skiddo is super fun! Think of a combination of Hip Hop and Rap that's gentle enough for little ears and hip enough for an adult to listen to without wanting to pull their hair out!
"Gotta Be Me" and "Luck" are our favorites. The lyrics are so sweet and kind...just a feel good album for all!
Okay! Have to run!


  1. I will have to check that out! By the way - I was going to award you with the Liebster but saw that you already won it! I love all of your ideas! :)
