Finally, I've found a little time to BLOG!  Hasn't February been crazy!?!?!  Between all the days leading up to Valentine's Day, President's Day activities, a Boosterthon FunRun and getting to come in late 3 times this month, I've had ZERO extra time to blog!!!  Yes, we got to come in 3 different mornings at 10:00!!  And all for no reason really!!  But hey!  I'm not complaining!  I loved it!  I'm still waiting on SNOW!  (not going to happen here!)

We have been working so hard with Place Value and numbers to 120!  We used several different Valentine's Day sheets to assess what has been learned.  This is one of my favorite!!  We have done many different Mystery Pictures using the 100 Chart.  This one is a little different.  The students did this one on their own!  They read each hint and then had to find the number and color it.  Here is one students finished paper.

Hi!  We are two first grade teachers from Alabama!   Between the two of us, we have taught nearly 42 years.  We are still passionate about teaching and we're both obsessed with new ideas! We have spent the past year in awe of all the creative teachers out there.  We have spent countless hours blog-hopping each night when everyone has gone to bed.  And YOU have spent countless hours creating and sharing with teachers all over the world.  
Honestly, we have created many different things for our classrooms, too.  We have decided to jump head first into this blog thing and share with you!  It's our hope that there might be someone out there that can use something of ours!!  So...here's a little of what we're doing, in first grade, down in Alabama.  You've inspired us!!!
 We  BEING FIRST!!!!  Don't you?!?!?
