I have been teaching first grade for 11 years and absolutely love it! When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my 11 year old daughter and my husband who I have been married to for 12 years. Working full time and my daughter’s dance schedule keep me very busy, but when I have spare time I enjoy blogging, finding new craft ideas, shopping on Etsy, and looking around on Pinterest! I am always on the lookout for new recipe ideas.
Along with working on homophones we have also been working on antonyms. The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss is a great read aloud to introduce antonyms. Our first graders really enjoy this book, and many are able to read the book themselves. Here is a antonym word sort for extra practice. Click HERE to get your copy!
This is my 13th year teaching first grade, and I can't imagine teaching anything else! I have an amazing husband of eleven years, two very energetic little boys who are 10 and 9, a fun and sassy 5 year old daughter and a sweet baby girl who's almost 1! When not teaching, blogging or being a mama, I love to read, be crafty, and catch up on my night time soaps! I love creating lessons and activities, and my computer is never too far away from me. I am a Mac, and love all things Apple. :)
