Check out our recent class market we did to culminate our economics (needs & wants) study!  


The kids had an absolute blast!  I heard, "This is the best day ever!" and "You're the best teacher ever!"   :)

Hello Everyone,  I am new to the group so I thought I would introduce myself.  Although I have never taught in a first grade class, I have tutored 1st graders and my daughter is now at a 1st grade level.  Can't wait to learn from you!  Also, I'm doing a first grade readers giveaway on my blog right now.  I would love to have one of you win!

While I am not a first grade teacher in the professional capacity, I am a mom to a first grader.  Thanks for sharing what you do with your classes.  I'm one of those moms who enjoys sharing all that I find with my daughter and because of it she enjoys learning.
