Wandering Wednesday…A New Feature

Happy Hump Day, y’all!  Welcome to my newest little weekly feature…

zwanderingwednesday

 

Each Wednesday I’m going to feature a few fabulous teaching blogs.  There are SO many out there, and if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to miss out on ANY of them!  I mean, there’s no such thing as TOO many ideas, right?!  {Don’t ask Mr. Spouse what he thinks about that…he’ll tell you I’ve got LOTS of half finished “ideas” all over our house :)  Bless him.}

Let’s get started, shall we?!

First, let’s wander on over to LeAnne’s little corner of the blogosphere.  LeAnne is the author of…

Sweet LeAnne is a 2nd grade Kansas teacher.  LeAnne also taught both 3rd & 4th grade AND this busy mom of one has an Etsy shop to boot!   She’s got some pretty great teaching ideas, too!  Here are some of my favorites…

This darling science journal cover {a free download on her blog}

And I LOVE this regrouping game!  Wish I had it when I taught 2nd!

She’s pretty new to this wonderful little world of teaching blogs, so stop by, leave her some love, and follow her adventures in teaching.

Next stop, sweet Alicia from The First Grade Factory.  Alicia isn’t new to the scene.  She’s been whippin’ out great ideas & practical tips for a while now.  She’s been teaching first grade for the last 7/8 years and she has some fabulous things to share.  She’s sweet as all get out, too!  One of my favorite ideas are these great directions icons.  You can download them for free on her blog!

I also love these syllable counting activities {another free download}.  They’re perfect for this time of year!

Stop by The First Grade Factory, say hello, and subscribe to follow her so you don’t miss out on any fun ideas!

 

Last stop, Blog Hoppin’.  I love the sweet ladies that organized this collaborative blog...and I swear I’m not sayin’ that because I’m an author!  HA!  These women are some of the sweetest, most sincere teachers!  I adore their passion & excitement for teaching and their sweet, giving hearts.  Here are some recent ideas that I just love!…

Shelley Gray’s quadramas.  I can think of A MILLION different ways my firsties can use these!

Anna Brantley’s classroom community idea.  This is pretty dang awesome…totally using this next week!

I also really love “the power of a bandaid” activity from Denise.  A great lesson on fairness!
