Because blowing up your Instagram feeds last weekend wasn't nearly enough to share everything, my blogging buddies and I are linking up to tell you about the fabulous teacher tools we received in the Teacher Tool Swap part of the #springteacherbloggermeetup2015 weekend!
We had so many teachers at the meet up this year that we split up into grade level groups. Here is the first grade class photo. :)
There are some fabulous ladies in this group!
The amazing Amanda Pauley from Mrs. Pauley's Kindergarten lead the room in a "left, right" game where we passed our gifts around the circle until the end of the story.
Then we took turns opening our gifts and hearing how each teacher uses the gift in her classroom.
It was so much fun to see all of the "tools"!
I ended up with Brittany Brune from Nifty in First Grade's gift!
She uses Play Doh in her classroom for her early finishers. They keep a container of it on their desks and can build their sight words with it when they finish their work. Great idea!!
I didn't think to take a picture of the gift I brought, but Mel D from Seusstastic ended up with my basket of Dollar Tree goodies! I swear that place is a teacher's dream come true. The basket contained student certificates, stickers, bulletin board letters, sentence strips, and more!
I can't wait to tell you all about the rest of this amazing weekend!
