The sweet people at Carson Dellosa recently sent me a box of Guided Reading materials to review- and I seriously felt like I hit a jackpot at the perfect time!

I got these four Guided Reading Books that have pull apart books for small group time. Let’s be honest- It’s the end of the year and I am ALL ABOUT using anything that takes zero amount of time to prep! And, these were as simple as tearing the books out and folding them down the middle.

We did some teeth/dental health type stuff last week so this particular set about Caring for your Teeth fit in perfect. I only used these with my highest group of first graders. You get 6 copies of each reader and they come all ready laminated super thick! They were a perfect addition to our reading block time and we had tons of info to talk about and discuss with these little readers.

I would really recommend checking these out. Here is a website link if you want to read more about them..

I participate in the Brand Ambassador Program for Carson-Dellosa and have received these products free to review.

We have a great art teacher and program in my little school- and we had our annual art show this week. These were school, district and state winning art pieces. This is only a small sample of some of the artwork that was on display.

I really don’t know how we could be at the end of the school year. This picture was taken earlier this week- we only have 14 days left now.

Have these Fidget Spinners taken over your school. They only get to come out during recess time in my class. They cause WAY to much distraction. This is one fad I am ready to see disappear! How do you feel about them?

20 days friends! 20 days left to squeeze in a whole bunch of learning to a group of wild, spring-feverish first graders. And, it could actually be 19 because I am not sure our exact last day. But, who is counting!?

Well, we DID indeed survive the first week back after Spring Break. Even if it is testing week and we have a huge case of Spring Fever! Next stop is actually a long Easter weekend.. THEN it will be Summer Vacation.

I do truly like my job but what teacher does not count down to summer break!?!

           And speaking of free downloads- these frog patterns are free from Creekside Teacher Tales. We have been working on R blends this week so my first graders made their frogs and wrote R blends around them.

Easy peasy!

I LOVE the book Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. I have had this book companion since 2012 in my store but it was WAAAAY overdue for a makeover. So, I gave it a little face lift and added a few things.
