This is what I am about

Hey ya'll!!! I just want to lay it all out there. I am not trying to strike it rich on TPT.... I just want to connect with other teachers from all over the place! I want to share, collaborate, and just get to know each other.. Encourage one another.... laugh and cry with each other... if this sounds cool to you follow me... message me.. let's chat! Follow me on Periscope, Blab or Instagram @amvictory!

Peace and Love ya'll,
Ms. Angela

June's over?... Julying!

Ok.. a year ago I said I was back into the world of blogging but I totally mean it this time! Squiggle life!! I can't believe June has come and gone! I have had a great summer chilling and just enjoying time with my girl! So, July?? Wow!!! I have started the pinning for the new year on Pinterest and my Amazon cart has a few new items in it. That is about as far as I have gotten. I am mixed with emotions of AHHH summer break is fading fast and EEEk!!! I can't wait to meet the new littles and decorate my room. How do you feel about July and most importantly what are YOU pinning? 

Love and Light,

I'm back........

I am back after a LONG break.  A lot has happened since my last post. I have moved, my grandmother lost her battle to Alz, I found the University of Mississippi's Writing Project, love has been lost and gained, but one thing remains the same I am still teaching first grade. Tomorrow starts week 2 and it will be great! Have you started yet???

Catching Up!

So sorry! I have not been a very good blogger! Definitely going to do better! Thank you Dana for featuring me on New Blogger Tuesday!  Check her out at Fun in 1st Grade!

Where are we now? We are in the Daily 5/ Cafe groove! The kiddos are doing great and fully engaged! It blows me away at how effectively the kiddos are using their strategies independently! Any doubts you have had about the D5 don't worry just go with it! Totally worth it!

In other news, we are in fully swing of implementing the Common Core curriculum. So far I love it! It has been like a breath of fresh air!

I hope to share my first FREEBIE tomorrow! Bat Contractions!

How do you do it?

This year has been a big year of changes! New Principals, new curriculum and I'm new to the Daily Five and Cafe. I started Daily 5 on day one! WhooHoo! We are currently at 18 minutes on read to self! Way to go us! I have a question for my bloggers? How do you plan with your fellow teachers? Do you each plan on your own and create your own assessments? Do you plan together? Do you each plan different subjects and meet together together to pass out plans etc? Have you changed methods of planning to adapt to the core? How do you do it? I wanna know! :)
