I'm not sure if this is the best of my blog from 2012, but it's what was looked at the most. See each post and find freebies by clicking on the pictures.
#1: First Grade Common Core At-a-Glance
The Common Core can be hard to manage. This document makes it a little bit easier to see what's expected of me.
#2: Handwriting with Purple and Green
I teach handwriting with purple and green crayons. It sounds crazy, but it actually works pretty well.
#3: Table-Sized Anchor Charts
I was inspired to turn certain anchor charts into small versions for each table of kids.
I'd especially like to thank Lori from Conversations in Literacy who reads and comments on every single post I make. She always has something encouraging to say about my thoughts. In addition, she is the kind of teacher you'd want your own children to have, so you should definitely drop by and tell her I sent you.
Thank you so much for joining me this past year. I'd love to see more of you in 2013!
