I am loving Fall with pumpkin everything! I just wish it didn't rain so much in Seattle. I have been extremely busy and I feel like I am super behind this year. I started my National Board and new grade level this year. I am LOVING first grade. It was hard to leave kindergarten but teaching first graders are so much easier. They know what to do without my help all the time! It's amazing! It is also nice having half of your kids in kindergarten again. They know what to do and are great role models to the other kids. I can't say enough how lucky I am to have the best class to do my National Board with. They are truly amazing and very sweet. Okay, enough about me. Here's my currently for the month of October. I also created Phonics Lessons Made Easy for First Grade, resource and ideas from Fountas and Pinnell. You will need the Fountas & Pinnell curriculum to use this guide.
