Head Hunters Sight Word Game

I was lucky enough to go to the Illinois Pre-K and Kindergarten Conference last Thursday and Friday. There were plenty of inspirational speakers and I came home with TONS of ideas. For once I did not come home with tons of "stuff" I bought. I think I maybe just might have already purchased everything they sell there:) Anyway, I wanted to bring my class a little gift from my "trip." I got them nothing but good ideas and a reinvigorated teacher. SO . . . I told the kiddos I got them some new…

Camping Unit

Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by for a peek into the wonderfilled world of first grade! I want to share some highlights of our Camping Theme.

Five for Friday... I mean Saturday

So, once again I am going to be a day behind in my blogging :) I think I may need to just start a weekly Saturday link up since I'm always around 12 hours late to the cute one on Doodle Bugs Teaching. Of course, if I did that I'd probably do 90% of the Saturday posts on Sunday :) There seems to be only two places I get to on time - work and church. Everywhere else is hit or miss. According to my hubby, if I say I'm going to be home by 4:30, then he starts getting ready at 4:30 because…
