Blends, Shapes, 3 Little Freebies, 4 Giveaways & 1 Sale!

The winner for best teacher is....
Photo: And the winner....of the Best Teacher Award....goes to....YOU!  Have a great week!


Totally took this idea from
Teacher Tipster!

In March we begin our Nutrition Unit.
Here is a sneak peek of one 
activity I do with the kiddos!
They give me a quote that I add 
to their milk mustache picture.
Add a "Got Milk?" label
and you have a mini poster!

We hang ours in the 
cafeteria right above the milk! 

I send them home afterwards
with a magnet attached so they
can hang them on the fridge!

I added a couple of new ideas
to my blends and shapes lessons!
I found several of these on a neat new blog!

First Grade Buddies

Hop on over and meet
Tamra & Sarah!

They used magazines and
had the students search for
an assigned blend.  The students
glued these to a square.
One of the ladies made a quilt, 
the other hung them from her
classroom clothesline.

My teeth are tired!"
Cracks me up!
