A Mental Day....and 3 Addends

Well, not quite. It's true, I was off today, because of an appointment, but I must say, it also turned into a great mental day! I think I'm ready to go back to work tomorrow, although we have a walk-through at 8:30 a.m. sharp!  The great news is the fact that it is the last one of the school year! Yippeeee!!!!

I had some first grade friends ask for some 1st grade skills, namely 3 addends, and that came back to me like it was yesterday. I went ahead and aligned it to the common core, because we will officially adopt it next year. Click on the picture for more information.

My kids have really enjoyed our insect unit, especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but yesterday we had a rough afternoon, so we did not get as far as I would have liked. What do you guys do to combat the end of the year behavior issues? I need all of the help that I can get!


  1. The end of the year is terrible for behavior! I just barely hang on!! lol

  2. I am glad you were able to take a mental health day. :)

  3. Hi! I am your newest follower! So, you left first for K and love it. MY first grade bestest friend was moved to K two years ago after we taught together for 7 years! She did NOT want to move, but now wouldn't move back! Something magic must happen there.

    Stop by sometime.


Thanks for taking the time to drop a line!
