I cannot express the light and grace this little one has brought into our home. Today we celebrate her six years of life. I am overjoyed in knowing that God saw me fit to raise His gem while we walk this earth. Kamilah is a ray of sunshine; my gift from God.
I’ve been getting many requests lately and if I’m honest, I just haven’t had the time. In an effort to be efficient and to meet the requests, I created a growing bundle and provided and expected date of release. Yikes! 😬😬 With this, I’ll be able to complete the entire bundle by year’s end. I realize the introduction of many of these skills have already happened within your units of instruction; however, if you get it now, you will have them all for next year! 🎉 The way a growing bundle works, you end up getting many of the components within the bundle at no cost to you, but you have to grab it before each additional resource is released. Honestly, I have to say thank you for all the interest that I’ve gotten over these. I first created them because I needed them for my students and I had planned on only creating for the short vowels. Then, I kept getting emails asking me when the next set would come out! I’m blown away by it and feel so overjoyed by your enthusiasm and the response your students have shown.

@letteritbetter understands me. This has been especially true this week after daylight saving time, which by the way, I read all about it this week and apparently I’ve been saying it wrong this whole time. It’s not savings, it’s saving 🤯 #iamateacher #imateacher #firstyearteacher #teacherstruggles #teacherlife #iteach
Obsessed with @littlemissfiesta_ and her mini erasers. Also, pink! She had me at pink! I am so excited to follow her on her new journey outside of the US 💕 #teachersofinstagram #iamateacher #imateacher #iteachtoo #iteach
We use the phonics skill of the week to come up with our own story. It can be silly and funny and that’s what the kiddos love about it. We use a list composed of words they come up with as well as with words that I provide. We look through it and determine who our character will be and then we go from there. It is so much fun! It was challenging at first because they needed the exposure and practice but now they’re little experts. I got this idea from a participant in a course I TEACH. Isn’t it great how I was the instructor and I was able to learn something from a participant? We are always learning. Always! We all bring different ideas and expertise to the table. I value collaboration 💕 #teachercollaboration #teachersfollowteachers #iteach #iamateacher #imateacher #firstyearteacher #phonics #firstgradeteacher #iteachfirst #iteachelementary #iteachsecond #iteach1st #educationalequity
Enough! Much needed conversations are happening because our students have had enough. Schools should be safe places. I stand with students. 📸 credit @savannahsmithphoto #notonemore #teachersagainstgunviolence #iamateacher #imateacher
This speaks volumes, America. #notonemore #teachersagainstgunviolence
I want to give credit to whoever created this meme, but I don’t know who did. I just about died laughing because it simply could not be more true! Snow on top of snow on top of snow.
