I'm so excited to be blogging (and really impressed with myself for figuring it out!) So hello world, I'm Melissa. I teach 1st grade, obviously, and I love reading other blogs so I thought I'd try and contribute. I've been silently stalking many teacher blogs and "stealing" wonderful ideas. I feel like I owe many of you some ideas in return (not sure I have any great original ideas though).
I totally loved the monster gift bags that Babbling Abby used to make a word sort. My dollar tree didn't have the cute bags she found so I made these little guys. I've seen tons of classrooms with sound muncher type things so this is my attempt at that. I introduced these "Phoneme Friends" in the work with words station this week and they were a hit!
I have the critters and worksheet saved but seeing as how I'm new to this whole blogging thing it may take me a little while to figure that out! I'll share as soon as I learn how.
And that's it for my first post. I feel so accomplished!!
