Mini Vacation is Over!

I took a few days off to go to my son's graduation at BYU and returned to school today to give my students the Stanford 10 test. Way to start a week!
This Florida girl was really enjoying the low humidity and cool weather!
Before leaving last week I put a Math journal on TPT.  I am really excited about using it.  Our first grade teachers are starting to do more math journaling and they are excited about the student's progress.  I also included large and small animals that go with the journal entries and some fluency practice.  Check it out HERE.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

We were out for spring break last week.   We went to Chattanooga to visit my daughter and it snowed two of the days we were there.  Snow during spring break was a first for this Florida girl!  We are glad she lives in Tennessee because it is such a nice place to visit. 
Common Core reading and math activities that we are doing this week with Peter Rabbit are in my
Easter Common Core Math and Reading Activities on TPT.  You can check it out HERE.
