EDM SmartBoard Lessons

Inspired by another first grade teacher, I have created a SmartBoard presentation for every EDM (Everyday Math) lesson for Units 2-10.  I don't like carrying my Teacher's Manual around or having to refer to it.  So each lesson has pretty much everything from the Teacher's Manual in it, plus supplementation. 
Since SmartBoard files (unlike PDFs) are not locked, you can alter them.  So using my lessons as a guide, feel free to change them to meet your needs.

So far Unit 2 is up, with others coming soon.
You can always find them by clicking on the page link on the right side of my blog.

TPT -or- TN

My colleague Deanna and I are like ying and yang...salt and pepper...peanut butter and jelly.  She's the queen of surfing the net and finding TONS of great teaching materials and resources!  I'm the queen of creating teaching materials and resources.  So about a year ago she started talking about this website called Teacher Pay Teacher and went on and on about how much teaching STUFF she found there.

Made It Monday!

Made It Monday is now going to be on the first Monday of each month over at Tara's fantastic blog:

My blog has been as quiet as a sleeping infant lately because I gave birth to my son Max about 2 weeks ago, so life just got busier and I haven't found the time to blog...until now!  

So this project was completed prior to Max's arrival and is a spin-off of something I've seen from several people doing Monday Made It.

A Birthday Pot

First, I sprayed painted an old flower pot, filled it half way with polished rocks and put star stickers on the outside.
