Moving on up! First Grade Frenzy!

Hello all!

I know it seems like I have been on hiatus, but a lot has been going on this summer! I will actually be moving schools (out of the area from last years school) and grades this coming school year.

I will be teaching first grade this year! I have been working on my room and will have to post some before and after pictures when I get the chance. I know you all understand how busy this time gets, and technically I am working earlier than the normal report date!

So our blog will remain the same, however there will be some kindergarten and FIRST grade materials and sharing going on. As we know, some K students excel and are in need of first grade work and some first grade students enter first grade still needing some support at the K level, so we can still provide a lot of sharing, ideas and knowledge for the K and first grade levels :)

On another note, I am still seeing items I want to add to my classroom closet in the stores.

I found these great Scholastic DVDs of popular books being read at Walmart for only $5 each!! Christina had a set of several (directly from Scholastic I believe) that I borrowed last year and these are the same ones, minus a few maybe. Great buy considering each DVD has 3-4 stories...for $5 each!!!

Also, I would love to hear from anyone that might be using the Daily Five in their classrooms for K or first grade! I would like to try it this year in first, but did literacy stations last year in K. If anyone has feedback on using the Daily Five or suggestions for getting started please let me know :)



  1. I will have to run to Walmart! $5/video is a GREAT price! I've used Daily Five in my kindergarten classroom for several years and have absolutely loved it. Definitely start by reading the Daily Five book. The sisters are amazing! I start day 1 of school by introducing the book bin so I can start read to self. You can e-mail me at with any specific questions :)
