(Backup) Beginning of school finds

Hello all! It is almost the beginning of school here in Delaware! 

What I wanted to do was share some things I found to use in my room for curriculum, morning meeting and throughout the year! All items I picture are linked so you can go check them out for yourself!

First, I always give my students a special sticker for the first day of school!! I fell in love with these bright colored stickers and then of course these pencils were just screaming take me to school!! The pencils say look who’s spotted in first grade!

Aren’t they just the cutest?!

Morning meeting?! Some do and some don’t do it! We donit every morning and I am always looking for something fun to do for the activity!! Well, I found this cute activity for getting to know each other! The kids pull a leaf out of the box and answer the question! I loved it and can’t wait to use it!!!

When I teach rules, I focus on being a peace maker not a peace breaker so I found these awesome stickers and necklaces for my kids to wear and bring home!!! I love this unit and will blog more about it when we do it!  

So for my curriculum! I am always looking for some fun additions to add to what I am teaching throughout the year! I mean don’t we all do that?! So I found some great items to add to math, science, reading and writing! 

In science, we will be learning about the moon and the sun. We will be focusing on day and night. I found this awesome day and night sort!  I love how it also has an area for things that happen during both day and night!!

In math, we teach such a variety in first grade! Addition, subtraction, money, measuring, place value, time and so much more! I loved these stickers that are based on the skills we teach! Each child will get a folder with all the skills and strategies they will be learning this year!

Aren’t they bright and colorful!! These are going to be such an awesome learning tool!! I am going to blog more about these after they are made!

One area that my firsties, always groan about at first is writing!! I found these cute and fun would you rather writing prompts to use with them! They are dry erase but I am going to display them once a week for my kids to journal about them. These will be great when we begin our opinion writing  unit!!

The last tool I found that I love are these reading highlighting bars  These are perfect for them to keep their place!

 So these are just a few of my finds for the beginning of my year and to add to my curriculum!! I will definitely be blogging more about these when we actually use them in the classroom! 

Will be logging soon about other finds andneevealing my Classroom!! Until then have an awesome day!!!

Donors choose!!!


What do you dream about getting for your students? Better seating options? Technology? Books? Maybe it’s something else entirely.

I’ve received the resources I need for my classroom through, a nonprofit site that connects teachers to a nationwide community of classroom supporters — and I’m on a mission to let the best teachers I know (that’s you, obviously!) in on the secret. This could be an amazing resource for your classroom and I’d love to help you create your first request.

If you’re interested, here's how we can get started:

- ​​Go ahead and create an account on with my personal link and start your first project.
- Just message me with any questions you have as you go through the process. I have lots of ideas, and would love to help.
- Submit your first request. Once you do, you’ll get a special promo code to double donations made during your request’s first week on the site.
- Get started by clicking this link

As I said, let me know if you have any questions. I am so excited to introduce you to this resource!
