I've missed you! I am in way over my head with wedding planning, long-ish term sub plans for wedding, pre-wedding celebrations, PALS testing, report cards, and oh yea...TEACHING every day! :) Ahh!
I couldn't miss out on a chance to link up to the instagram Party, though! What a fabulous idea.  I loooove instagram and have managed to find some of you, but this will be an awesome way to find new blogs AND to get my blog fix when I don't have time to sit at the computer and surf.  I'm happy to announce that "What Happens in First Grade" now has an instagram account.  Unfortunately, it will probably only have pictures of Sawyer until I can get to school in the morning and snap something else! ;)'s brand new!
Click below to link up!

We have indeed been busy, busy, busy in first grade despite my blogging absence.  Here is a quick "photo dump" of what we've been up to!  I promise I'll be back soon....even sooner if anyone wants to write a week's worth of sub plans for me.  Any takers? ;)
Fact Family Review
Some of our favorites:
-Number Sentence Sliders (super easy to make with sentence strips - cover one of the numbers OR the +/- sign and your partner has to guess what is hidden!
- "Visual Math" Number Sentence Shakers
Phonics Work with the Sounds of "oo" 
Fruit Loops and Sunglasses make everything more fun!

Money Practice Games
-Most are from from the fabulous Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade.
-We also had an awesome time with my little "Money Bugs" count the room activity.
 Taking advantage of the pretty weather to do a little short i/long i partner writing sort with sidewalk chalk

PS - The UPS man just made my day with these precious little koozies for the wedding...

I'm ready to say I do!
Happy teaching to you...and see ya on instagram! ;)

I almost never drop remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up
here "Photo Dump and INSTAGRAM PARTY!". And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks come across like written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
