Short Vowel Packets!

Hi Friends!  I hope you are all getting a chance to enjoy some time outside in the sun.  The weather here has been alternating between sunny and rainy days.  I have been taking advantage of the sun to hit the pool with the kids.  We just LOVE summer!  My 3yr old ("Spiderman") is learning to swim.  He is so proud.  I am scared to death. He is a man of no fear...just jumps right it! Stops my heart...I can't turn my head away from him.  So much for relaxing.  HA!

While I have been chasing Spiderman, Erin has been busy making some AMAZING short vowel packets.  Be sure to check them out.  I am in awe of this girl.  She knows just how to keep those firsties practicing.  LOVE IT! and the clip art is SO CUTE!

Talk to you soon!

The End is in Sight!

Would you believe we still have 6 MORE DAYS TO GO AND we have to present an inservice the day after the students are finished?! Can we get a "Whoop Whoop!"
Actually, it is our inservice that has led us here.  We were creating so many things for our new LA Curriculum and thought we should share.

We are believers that first grade teachers need a lot of patience and a little bit of crazy!  We are no exception.  This year we decided to get another masters, you know, just for fun, in classroom technology.  The technology part has been great... the whole school thing... not so much!  We have learned everything from what not to say in an email to how to properly read legal documents.  It IS fascinating!  But, just like in undergrad, after the necessities, comes the fun. This summer we are going to take an iPad course and begin piloting their use with our first graders in the Fall.  We look forward to sharing that adventure with all of you.

For all of you that have started your summer (HA! We know you are all thinking about next year already!),  we hope you enjoy your time off with your families and have a great vacation.

Here are some new freebies for you!  Don't forget to check out our store and become our first followers!

Welcome To Our New Blog!

Hello and welcome to SMART in first.  We are two first grade teachers who love using technology in the classroom to create engaging activities for our students and to take them to places they have never been.  This blog was created to share this excitement with all of you.  Many of our products are created for interactive SMARTboards, but we have also put them in PDF form so that you can use them as workstations or with whole group instruction!  We would also be happy to create a notebook for you at your request too.  Below are some of the products that we have available at our new TPT store.
