My Blog Makeover!
Ta Da! I was so excited to log in today to see that the talented Alicia at Dreamlike Magic was able to finish the installation of my blog template! The other template I had was a freebie and just disappeared one day!

I have several blogs and did not want to spend a lot for a custom design since I already have one at Creative Lesson Cafe. This beautiful flowery design  is one of their premade templates. If you are on a budget but want a fresh new look, you should go check out the other designs she has to offer. They are all cute and colorful. Perfect for a teacher blog. 

This is the header from my classroom blog for parents also a premade by Alicia.

Arctic Animals PowerPoint

(Please excuse my missing blog template while I await installation of a new one)!!!

Enough already!Another big blast of winter and an arctic air mass is heading our way. There may be a snow day on the first day back from break! Good grief! What do I do when a massive winter storm is approaching? After stocking up on groceries, filling up the tank and other responsible stuff, I finish a PowerPoint about arctic animals!

January, especially in snowy states, is a great time of year for an arctic animals thematic unit. I plan to use this powerPoint as a "big book" to project onto the SMARTBoard as we go through our unit. 

I purchased some gorgeous photographs to include for 15 of the fascinating animals of the arctic circle. Each page contains some interesting facts and also describes the adaptations that make each of these creatures well-suited for the harsh environment in which they live.

Here's a look at some of the slides included:

A Thanksgiving Freebie for My Friends

Hello first grade friends! It's been a while! I've been posting at my other blog, Creative Lesson Cafe, lately and this one is so sadly neglected! Good grief, I need a new template! Now, that's an idea for my Christmas wish list! Hopefully you are following one or the other blog via Bloglovin by now!

I have been reminiscing about Thanksgiving plays, feasts and all of the fun times spent teaching first grade lately! You might want to look back at a few of my previous posts here to see photos and read more about our November festivities!

My second graders are learning about life long ago in our new unit. I made these anchor chart printables to add some pizzazz to them.

A Thanksgiving Freebie for My Friends

It's a freebie at my Kidsrcute TPT store! Just click on the image above to download a copy for your classroom! I hope you like it! 


 Why printables for anchor charts? You can read about my time-saving tip here: 

A Thanksgiving Freebie for My Friends

I also made this game of I Have... Who Has? for the holidays for little ones to practice reading seasonal words. I thought that this would be a fun thing to do for those few extra minutes on feast day or for a November center!

Marshmallow Bunnies Math Center


Peeps!!!! I'm not much into candy anymore like I was as a kid, but I still love my marshmallow bunnies at Easter time!I could eat the whole package myself! They're definitely best a little stale. Give it a try~ poke a few holes in the wrapper and let them get nice and chewy before eating!

Anyway, I wanted to share some cuteness I just finished for spring and Easter time!

Marshmallow Bunnies Math Center

I thought it would be so cute to put the cards in a small Easter basket at the center! There is a recording sheet too for the students to write the four related facts in the fact family. I love these cute graphics from Maree Truelove. They look good enough to eat!

Whenever I have a new item, I randomly choose three and send it free in a few days, so leave me your email in the comments below and tell me what candy is your weakness! :)

Whatever your plans are tonight for St. Patty's Day, be safe and have fun!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Sequencing Giveaway

Hello First Grade Gallery Friends! 
Last year, I blogged about all of the fun we had during reading month with our Laura Numeroff books and activities.This year, our grade level has chosen Eric Carle as our author to study during the month of March!

I just wanted to let you know that I have finished a fun little sequencing activity for the story every kid loves, The Very Hungry Caterpillar! The cards can be used at a literacy center or in a pocket chart for a whole-group activity. Even if you don't do an author study, it's a fun story to use in the spring with lessons on life cycles.

I found the cutest graphics for this! I hope you like it! :) Click on the picture to see it at my TPT shop!

Valentine Owls and a Giveaway

Hi Friends! I'm still here but have been posting at my new blog lately. :)

I just wanted to let you know that I have finally gotten around to making a packet for the project. I have a giveaway going on at my other blog~ Creative Lesson Cafe. I'd love to have you stop by to say hello!
