The glitter fairy 🧚‍♀️ visited the first grade hall today when we were working on our Hanukkah written response! I think our Menorahs are beautiful!! 🥰🥰🥰 #iteachfirst #iteachfirstgrade #firsties #glitter #rootedinreading #rootedinreadingfirstgrade #funtimes #nevada #nevadateachers #silverstateteachers #oneweektogo
Ornaments are made and hung! Our tree is so cute! We even added a diy ornament that I got from @hobbylobby where my students got to choose to make either a Santa or a reindeer. And for a dash of extra cuteness, I added their picture to the middle! . . . . Next week they’ll be able to learn about other holidays from around the world by traveling from class to class to make a craft and eat special festive dishes! Such a merry time! . . . Let me know in the comments how does your class celebrate the holidays? . . . . . #festiveclassroom #tistheseason #firstgradeteacher #firstgradeclassroom #firstgraderocks #firsties #christmasintheclassroom #christmasornaments #diyornaments #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #primaryteacher #holidaysintheclassroom #holidayfun #holidaycrafts

Teacher gifts are the best! These were handmade by me for my kids’ teachers! I almost forgot about them and finished them early this morning...5:46 am to be exact! . . . . . . #teachergifts #christmasgifts #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #firstgradeteacher #primaryteacher #elementaryteacher #firsties #handmadegiftsarethebest #christmasteachers #teacherswhofollowteachers
My Firsties did an AMAZING job performing in the Christmas Production, Twas The Week After Christmas. #msdanielsfirsties #firsties #funinfirst #christmasprogram #twastheweekafterchristmas #fhae #forestheightsacademyofexcellence #surfers #hulagirls #surfinusa
My little monkeys for our Christmas program!! They did great!! #firsties #christmas #iamateacher
I created a video on how to make our parents' Christmas gifts. Students used a QR code link to watch my video. They were able to work independently to create their gifts while I taught guided reading, which gave each gift a unique personable touch! #iTeachFirst #iTeachSPED #FirstGrade #Firsties #SPED #FirstGradeTeacher #SPEDteacher #Teacher #TeachersFollowTeachers #TeachersOfInstagram #EarlyChildhoodEducation #PrimaryTeacher #Edu #Educator
I have some super adorable #firsties ! #whatsyourswag #libertyhillisd
Only 1 side left to stitch on these pillows before they are ready to be gifts for the families of my 1st graders. The kids feel such a sense of accomplishment when they sew. And aren't their pictures cute? .

I’ll be honest.. keeping up with this instagram is a lot harder than I thought!! BUT not as hard as getting through the month of December.. • My kiddos are ready for the break and so am I.. just 5 more school days!!!! • Today was Christmas lights day at school and if you can’t tell my earrings light up! I was supposed to wear a matching necklace but I forgot it, of course, because I’m hardly awake in the mornings at this point. #sendhelp • • • #1stgradeteacher #teach #teacher #iteach #iteachfirstgrade #iteachfirst #firstgrade #teachersofinstagram #teachergram #instateacher #teachersfollowteachers #teacherlife🍎 #teaching #1stgrade #firsties #iteach1st #aggieteachers #aggie #aggies #classroom #classroomdecor #class #iteachbilingual
A little throwback to costume day😸 and our intro to long a (magic e✨). We began each lesson with our #wholebrainteaching long a movements and words, their hard work and engagement deserves all the 😍. #setthestagetoengage
In the words of my teammate, I did a thing! I follow @theartoffunology and she gave me a really cool idea for a math review game. I wanted to do a check in to see how well my students were understanding composing and decomposing numbers so I created a really cool review game called Reindeer Games! Check out my stories to get the deets! . . . . . . . #teacherswhofollowteachers #teacherswhofollowinstagram #teachersofinstagram #iteachfirst #iteachtoo #firsties #firstgradeclassroom #christmasmath #mathgamesforkids
My favorite little corner of my chalkboard is right here! 🌈 I write a new poster for every month and raffle off which student gets to take home the old one. They get so excited seeing when I change it. Trying to keep up this Christmas spirit for one more week 😓 . . . #teachersofinstagram #teacher #iteachfirst #iteach #iteachlittles #firsties #calligraphy #handwriting

How wonderful it is to have great friends! We had two mystery readers this week! Thank you, @laurenmcgee24 and Heather for reading to my class! Even from 600+ miles away, the magic of reading a great book kept my #firsties engaged and excited! 💜👏🏼🎄 #giftofreading #tcsyes #teachingeveryonetakeseveryone #thankful
Me when I got home today... 😴❄️
It is officially the time of year where I pull out a few tricks to keep things moving smoothly in the classroom. The scoreboard is a whole brain teaching idea where students earn points for doing things they’re supposed to do anyway. I (the teacher) get a point whenever they don’t do something the way they should. It’s a super quick way to fix unwanted behaviors. I got this board for free from @teachingwithstyle ! . . #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #behaviormanagement #behaviormodification #classroommanagement #teachersofinstagram #igteacher #firstgrade #firsties #classroomteacher
🎉Happy Birthday Kristin!🎉 Thanks for always being as extra as me! No one else i would want to do all these crazy ideas with 😍🎊 . . . As you can see we take holiday character day pretty serious 😂
My #firsties wrote about how they can let their kindness "shine" during the holidays or any day of the year. #bekind #kindnessmatters #holidays #firstgradewriting
🎶🎵Ain’t NO LIE baby BYE BYE BYE 🎶🎵 .... goes our sanity as we try to DECK THE HALLS and CRAM all the HOLLIYAY festivities into the last week!!! *** SWIPE TO SEE SOME OUTTAKES!!
The kids reading to “Angel” our elf 🥰📚
Fun little firstie for this lovely. Happy 18th! #rosetattoo #firsties
These 20 little angels make every day worth while! Some days may be long, some days may be extra tough, but each day is worth it to see the growth these children have made since day 1. Also, seeing there sweet little smiles is a bonus 🥰🥰
Today we read the story “Santa’s Stuck” by Rhonda Gowler Greene. My kids loved this silly story and the craftivity that went with it. We loved brainstorming ways to help Santa get out of the chimney! Check out First Grade WOW’s blog for the free resources that I used to go along with the story!!!
So, again, I’m dramatic...⁣ ⁣ But it’s true! December is when we have to do ALLLLLLL THE THINGS. What do you have to get done before winter break?! ⁣ ⁣ PS don’t forget to go check out @fifthismyjam’s page! She’s has so many amazing ideas that you NEED! This quote is just one of the quotes that are totally relatable. Go now! :)
the best first grade team right here, were we naughty or nice?? 🍎🎄
It’s time for Hour of Code! My students got to play with @playosmo and #beebots! Coding doesn’t have to be difficult. My #firsties figured out how to “speak computer” and it was a huge success! Check out my stories to see how much fun we had! . . Does your school participate in hour of code? . . . . . . #teacherswhofollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #hourofcode #hourofcode2019 #iteachtoo #iteach #iteachfirst #kidswhocode #stemclassroom #technologyintheclassrooms #primaryteacher #elementaryteacher #firstgradeteacher #firstgradeclassroom #firstgradeclassroom

Room 1 is getting in the CHRISTMAS SPIRIT🎄❤️🎅🏼 Who else’s room has been visited by a little elf!? 😉 My kids were so excited to see their names on a stocking and a note from the North Pole ❄️ Thank you @happylearners.with.mrs.hash for always letting me steal your ideas😜 • • • #iteach1st #merrychristmas #targetteacher #targetteachers #teacherblog #elfontheshelf #fireplace #firstgrade #firsties #gingerbread

Day 3 of 35 left on the road to my first Marathon. Night Run! 48 minute Run in the dark with @nikerunning guided runs. Loving the Structure 22 "Blue Blast" to munch these miles on the way to #WDWMarathon, goal is well for a strong and healthy sub 4 hour first Marathon. New favorite tank top 😍 @baleafsports. Get on Amazon get some yourself!! #stayhungry #gains #goals "Don't get to high, don't get too low" #GuruH🙏 #ampednextlevel #firstmarathon #nightrunning #WDWMarathon #Firsties #running #marathon #scienceinsport #fueledbyisagenix #garmin #rundisney #nikerunning #runcoach #runhappy #findyourfit #runningteachers #runnersofinstagram #fitnichefl @isagenix @isabody
You’ll never believe what our Winter the elf did this weekend!! She made tons of glitter snowflakes and hung them up all over the classroom. My firsties were ecstatic this morning when they saw that Winter was frozen in the middle of her decorating frenzy! I love this time of year and all of the joy it brings. ✨
If you’re looking for a “scientific” way to teach about reindeer, then check out @thefirstgradeparade’s Reindeer Science unit! This is only one of the cute activities that comes with this unit. This mini book is packed full of pages for students to share their knowledge on reindeer- what they eat, where they live, what their adaptations are, etc! Grab it on TPT today!!
Day 1 of our week of Holiday Fun!! Santa’s Workshop! I definitely teach the cutest Reindeers!! Thank you @sancastle88 and @trinfirst_ for our antlers! #firsties #funinfirst #fhae #msdanielsfirsties #santasworkshop #reindeers
We are doing Christmas Around the World and today we visited India !! We had a parent volunteer do the beautiful art work, Henna!! We also made a Kandeel too!! The children enjoyed the activities today!! #cultureandtraditions #christmastraditions #firsties #funinfirst #henna #india
“When two vowels are together, the first one says its name.” This poster made it into the background of an earlier post, and I received a lot of comments and messages asking about it, so here it is. One of my reading groups worked on this poster by sorting vowel pairs by the long vowel sounds they made. We then found words that used the vowel pairs and wrote them beside the pair they went with. It’s a great visual reminder for my students when they’re trying to sound out words with vowel pairs. It doubled as a great quick assessment while they were putting it together. I could see who really had the hang of it and who needed more prompting. . . . #phonics #phonicsfun #readingisfundamental #anchorcharts #visuallearning #studentengagement #iteachsecond #iteachfirst #firsties #firstgradeteacher #secondgradeteacher #readingintervention #smallgroupinstruction #primaryteacher
Miss Sparkle herself came back! I didn’t think she was going to make it this year, but she surprised me - as always! #kindnesself #elfkindnesschallenge #firstgrade #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachergram #firstgradeteacher #firstgradeclassroom #firstgradelife #firsties
There are two types of people...⁣ ⁣ And I totally relate to the one on the left... 🤷🏻‍♀️⁣ ⁣ Which do you relate to?
Door decorating contest ❄️✅ Our whole hallway chose to do a Frozen theme, so we also put paper up down the whole hallway to create a snow scene!! 💜(with snowflake making help from our kiddos ❄️) #december #doordrcorating #christmas #frozen #firstgrade #firsties #perfectly1st #iteachfirst #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
Some of my favorite lessons/ activities are whole group word sorts! Super easy to prep and BAM you have an anchor chart they can refer to!
We are embarking on opinion writing! Out first attempt was ...: well not so great so we are starting over. I am guilty of sometimes forgetting that my kids are 6&7... they do so many amazing things that I’m like ..... we are about to kill this... then reality hits and I’m like ok Jenell let’s continue to lay the foundation that got them to where they are! So we are going back to our notes to guide our writing ✍️! . . . I don’t let my kids copy me. So we start with the notes as a skeleton, once they are halfway i pause them and model my expectation. It helps to lay a foundation and helps me to begin to scaffold the work! . . . Writing is difficult for first graders! But it is worth it in the end! Watch us work! . . . #teachingsuperpowers #teachingsuperpower #writing #firstgrade #firsties #wewrite #foundation #teachingsuperpowers #teachingsuperpower
Today was the day to wear my new Gingerbread Man tshirt. We also read some stories and started cinnamon applesauce ornaments, but the tshirt was my highlight and most of my firsties got the humor. #gingerbreadman
I am so impressed by their ability, their drive and determination! You see they want to code. They teach me just as I teach them! My kids are the future! #theycode #coding #computerscience #future #mybabies #firstgrade #firsties #teachingsuperpowers #teachingsuperpower
I’m trying to write my function... what is a function... it’s something you are supposed to do! Listen... this just made my heart melt!

When middle school and first grade combine! Powerful #computerscience happens! . . . I am in a unique situation where my school k-12... so we sometimes get to connect with our other parts of the school! . . . This is the beginning of a beautiful mentoring program! Sometimes kids need to hear it from other kids to see how learning it at an early age can benefit you when you get older! . . . #mentor #networking #firstgrade #firsties #teachingsuperpowers #teachingsuperpower #connect #computerscience #coding #firsties #iteach #teaching #teacher #teachersofig #lasvegas
