‘Tis the season of how-to writing...and this one will always be my favorite mentor text! 💗😆 . Side note - it can be hard to track down, but it’s worth it if you can!
Do you send home a reading bag? 💗 For it to actually be effective - it’s important to teach your families how to best help their kids! I went through all the suggestions and papers that I have sent home throughout the years and put it into one simple to understand packet. 💗 Use the link in @mrsbteachesme to learn more about how mine works!

I’ve used @lakeshorelearning people color crayons for years...but have never seen the jumbo colored pencils! 🤗💛✏️ . I love using @lakeshorelearning supplies with my little friends in the classroom. I especially love all that they have for kids to create people that look just like them! . Check out my stories to see all the fun materials they have that go perfectly with “The Colors of Us!” #learnwithlakeshore
Mr. B Jr. came to help me at school today! He took his pay in the form of gummy worms...😉💙👨🏼🏫 . #mostlyhelped #teacherskid #futureteacher?
Hi! 🙋🏻♀️ I’m Sarah. I’m Type A all the way. 😂 . I’ve always been a very organized person. It’s the only way I function 🤷🏻♀️ I just started doing some organizing by color though, and it’s been a big game changer! . Are you as crazy as organization as I am? 😜
It’s time for DOLLAR DEALS!! 🎉 For the next two days, you can find two of my favorite resources for just $1! My reading strategy posters have made such a difference for my kiddos. I found them not using strategies - and quite frankly - not knowing what the various strategies were. I hung these at eye level, gave them each their own personal copy, and saw SUCH a difference! I also can not go without personal word walls! You may have seen my post on my moveable word wall. I use this to supplement it! My kids keep them in their writing folders and reference them all the time. They are super simple to put together! To check out these two resources you can use the link in @mrsbteachesme 👆🏻💗 You can also search the hashtag #RingIn2020 and see tons of other great resources for just $1!

Last minute trip to see the big guy today! ✅😉🎄❤️ #weareready Merry Christmas!

I just like holiday books. Holiday books are my favorite. ❤️🎄🕎⛄️🎅🏻 . Can’t we just read all day long? 😉
New name, who dis? 😁💗 . I am SO excited to finally launch my new brand - @mrsbteachesme! I have felt for awhile now that my Mrs B platform expands outside of first grade (even though it’s my favorite 😉) So, it was time for a name change! . Basically everything is still the same - just a new name! I also do have a shiny new website thanks to the amazing @jumpingjaxdesigns. Click the link in @mrsbteachesme if you want to check it out! .

I recently discovered that our (amazing) school secretary has a milk frother in the office. 😲 And - the best part - she happily helps me froth my milk. School life will never be the same! 💗☕️ . If a happy staff is your goal - I’m going to go ahead and suggest a milk frother. #happyteacher #littlethings #makeadifference
Clearly Buddy the Elf was a great excuse to use our poster maker...🎄❤️😉
If you give a kid a list...they will read! ❤️ Each year I just need one friend to make reading a whole book series exciting and a fun goal. Then, the excitement spreads and everyone wants a list! I compiled all of my lists and turned them into one resource! I have included 78 chapter book series and leveled them with both guided reading and DRA levels. Click on the link in @mrsbfirstgrade to learn more. This is the perfect time of year to ignite a love for reading! PS- if you already own them, I just updated them!

Let *Operation: Keep Them Engaged* commence! 😆 . One way I do that is to work on fluency with math facts digitally! Figuring out how to incorporate technology within your day can be overwhelming. I like having easy and independent ways of doing it - that are fun and engaging at the same time! . My kids love practicing these math facts on our SMART board or their iPads. They are completely self checking…and they think they are on an app that I made! 😉📱💜 . Best part? The bundle Is 40% off right now!! You can find them through the link in @mrsbfirstgrade 👆🏻 (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Digital-Addition-Subtraction-Fact-Mixed-Review-0-20-BUNDLE-3465816)
