I have been greatly inspired to create my own blog after gaining so many wonderful ideas from other blog masters. I am a newlywed since July 2010, a mom to an adorable 5 year old super mixed breed dog, and I am a teacher in my 2nd year in second grade.
However I taught first grade for four years before I was "promoted". I loved first grade and will never disagree that it is the most challenging grade, but Second grade is amazing! The students are able to do so much more independently and LOVE to read since it's not a struggle for them anymore.
Thanks to the amazing teachers on The Second Grade Teacher's Club and the wonderful Gingerbread Man Exchange my students had a blast! We marked all the gingerbreads we received on the US map and then decided to learn more about our state's facts such as our state bug (Honeybee) and our state shell (yes we have one).
