Top Teachers' Blog Swap and Hop!

Today is Blog Swap and Hop Day!  I know you are all going to love hopping around and visiting all the wonderful guest posts.  I am over at Rebecca's blog at Teaching First so feel free to drop by.  

Today I have a very special guest, Mary from Sharing Kindergarten so enjoy your blog hopping and all the links are at the bottom for you to hop through.  So grab that cup of coffee and let's go.

Hi Fab First Folks! 

I have a little secret. I have always dreamed of teaching first grade! I loved student teaching in first and my mentor teacher taught first. When I got a job, I was offered several K positions, so I took the best one. I have since fallen in LOVE with K. I teach this grade a LOT like 1st. In fact, whenever I make my activities I always *think* back to my experiences in first and make sure they would work for that too. 

One of my biggest challenges in teaching is having enough books for my students to read. Especially with The Daily 5 framework, my kids needs lots of books. Let's face it... we are the ones who buy the materials. I have been making easy readers for my students to use. I love connecting reading and writing, so I made a little reader for you guys, FREE of course.

I hope you decide to follow my blog and leave a sweet comment behind.

Best Wishes on a Blessed Day!
