Blogging and Positiveness

I was talking to one of my colleagues yesterday. I was noticing that I was getting very negative about school, APPR, the way things are run, etc. I need to step back, blog, and get back to being more positive. Does anyone else notice how much better they are at teaching and working with their colleagues when they are blogging regularly and reading other blogs?
Why did it take me so long to realize the correlation?

I know that my blogging is going to go in waves. I am a mother of three teenagers. I have a photography business as a part time job. I coach softball for my school in the spring. I try to get some exercising done during the week and weekends. I have put blogging on the back burner for a while now. I think it is time to make it a priority again.

My goal for right now it to blog once a week. I am going to try to get to it more often, but I don't want to make it something that I will get myself all worked up over. :)

Well, I feel better already! Wow!
Here's to a more positive day. It benefits all aspects of my life.
Thanks for letting me get this out and listening. :)

Have a wonderful day!!!

Stop, Swap & Roll Giveaway

Here's another one!!! I love these swap/giveaway linkies hosted by Jungle Learners.

I had the wonderful fortune of swapping with Brittani from Mrs. Black's Bees.
Oh My Word! You should see all the amazing products she has in her TpT store and the wonderful posts on her blog. 


Brittani was so wonderful to let me test out her Spring Stations and Printables.

These are so stinkin' CUTE!!!

We did the "Where is the Bee?" activity as a class.
They loved putting the entire book together and then gluing the bees and flowers where they belonged.

We then started with our little center time! They couldn't get enough of them!

A froggy poem with sight words.

ABC order

3D shapes


Teen counting

More counting

My students were involved the entire time!!!

I loved the little activities my kiddos could do on their own. The directions were so clear and everything was neat. There are so many black line printables for my firsties. 
Super, Super Product!

We had so much fun with all of them. There are many more activities that we had to wait until next week to do them. They were so disappointed we didn't finish ALL of them!

Check out Jungle Learners to see some more swaps and giveaways!

 Good Luck!!!

True/False Math Game/Activity

I am so excited to share this with you. 
We use Investigations in our school. I LOVE< LOVE>LOVE it!
There are many times in first grade when True/False activities come up. 
I don't think my firsties are that ready for it when it shows up. 
So, I created a product to help introduce True/False and practice the skill. 
My firsties know how to do this in a snap after working with this. :)
They LOVE it!

Students place all pieces face up. Student one chooses numbers to make an equation (either true or false) and places them on the sheet. Student two makes a decision whether it is true or false and chooses a T or F card. Both students decide if the answer is correct and record it on the recording sheet.

There are also practice sheets available. 

And some extension sheets. 

Head on over to grab it. 
Just for today, it's on SALE!

Have a wonderful day!
