Happy Wednesday!

Hi there!  Hope you're all having a great summer!  School starts for us in just a few days and it definitely feels like it's crunch time around here!  We wanted to let you know that we've updated one of our bestsellers!  Our First Grade Common Core Math Vocabulary Cards  now come in two font choices and we just added 8 new words!  If you have already purchased them, go to your downloads folder and re-download for the newest update.
If you'd like to check them out just click on the picture below!

Syllable sets now include September-January and currently working on February!  We should have February-June added within the next few months.  I love to use these with my first graders during literacy stations.  If you'd like to read more about that you can go {HERE}.
If you'd like to check out the syllable sets, just click the picture below!

And here are a few freebies!  I just updated the cover page for my lesson plan binder and created a few additional cover pages.  You can grab these HERE or by clicking on the pages below.  
This is an editable PDF so you can change name at the top or delete the text box if you'd prefer to not have a name at the top.  All examples are in color and B & W :)

I’ve recently started to work on my lesson plans for the first few weeks of school and thought I’d share my master template with you all.  It is in Powerpoint, and can easily be edited.  Just move/delete the text boxes and lines and you can customize them however you’d like.  I like to add monthly themed clipart in the above left corner J
You can grab this freebie HERE, or click on the picture below!
The fonts I used are:

Hope you all have a wonderful day! 
Friday is almost here! 


Back to School Read Alouds & A Freebie!

Happy Sunday!  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  A few weeks ago we had a contest and had our participants list their favorite back to school read alouds.  There were so many wonderful suggestions!  Thank you to everyone who participated!  Below are pictures along with a title list below each picture.  
We also created our own little picture and list of a few of our faves!  

Here are some of our favorites:

And here are some favorites mentioned by our followers!

The Kissing hand

And here's a little freebie!
I plan on putting this color by number worksheet in my first day coloring packs.  I have several coloring/counting/ABC worksheets that I copy for my first graders to work on while they get settled in on the first day of school.  If you'd like a copy, just click any of the pics below!  This freebie contains kindergarten through third grade and one that could be used at any grade level!

Here's one my daughter colored for an example!  
There are a couple of objects without numbers (apples on the tree, the boy's shirt, dots on the girl's dress)  These objects can be colored any color!

Have a great week!  

We have a winner!
