1. Kacey from Mississippi runs Doodle Bugs Teaching.

Of her True & False Math Unit she says, “This true and false unit is my newest creation and has 7 sets of math cards to sort depending on if they are true or false. I will use these with my first graders all year, first in whole group to model then transition them into an early finisher, math center, or review activity. They fit perfectly in pocket charts or I make them into a desk folder game. I include 5 different ways to use them in the unit.”

Take a look at her Old Lady Swallowed Sub Tubs {Bundled}.

It is about time!”

First Grade Schoolhouse

8. Mona from California runs First Grade Schoolhouse. She advises teachers to “integrate reading, writing, listening, and speaking into foundational literacy activities. Learning is social. Give students the opportunity to share their writing and learn from each other as they practice skills. Short Vowels Word Work Activities CVC Words Bundle has short vowel activities for students to practice and strengthen skills at a literacy center, guided group, or independently. Activities lend themselves to students engaging with each other as they work with a partner, share ideas, read, and listen to each other.”

9. Jessica Tobin from Kentucky highlights her Back to School Reading Comprehension Pack.

“Starting in second grade and continuing through fifth grade, there is a huge push to make sure students truly understand what they are reading. This set includes five new seasonal stories with writing-to-respond activities to help students learn to comprehend while reading.”

 

Primary Polka Dots
Primary Polka Dots

Lindsay Flood from Louisiana runs Primary Polka Dots.

“Teaching inferences can be one of the most difficult abstract skills to teach. Inferences: Pocket, Pocket, Whose Pocket is Whose? is an interactive and engaging way to make inferences fun. The included activities will be talked about for months afterwards! These activities can be done in whole group, small group, or literacy centers. It’s one of my top five favorite lessons to teach!”
