Do you have your guided reading mats available? I love your math mat freebie.

Melissa McMurray  (TpT Seller)
Well thanks! I do not have any reading mats though. I didn't make any because I found such great freebies already out there for reading. When I taught reading, which I haven't done in three years, I just used an alphabet chart and a blends/digraph a chart. A quick google search will probably turn up great charts like he ones I used.

I just downloaded this unit and your directions under "Easy Organization" say to 'Print and laminate your word and picture cards'... Are there pictures to go with the definitions, or are you talking about the thumbnail images of the book covers when you refer to picture cards?
March 27, 2014 Report inappropriate comment

Melissa McMurray  (TpT Seller)
I did just mean the thumbnail images if the book covers. My kids use those pictures to remember which book the words came from. There is not a picture for each word. Thanks for asking and I hope you like using these for vocabulary lessons!

It has the definitions to use with the kids and some printable cards for kids to record words on but no real directions on how to teach the words. I introduce the words and definitions before the read aloud and then have the kids listen for them in the story.

Hi Melissa,
I LOVE your counting mats and used them all the time last year. I was wondering, since the standards have changed for first grade, and they now need to count to 120, would you consider adding on to the counting charts so the go to 120? That would be really wonderful if you did!!

Thanks for sharing your creation :)

Hi Melissa. I taught kindergarten for 11 years and now I'm teaching first grade! Plus this school year marks the first year using the common core at my school. My question to you is does your daily data incorporate the common core standards? And if I try out your first few months and buy all of them from you, do you give out discounts. Thanks for your time. Jami

Melissa McMurray  (TpT Seller)
This is also my first year using common core math standards. I have not aligned these activities with common core, so it is not noted on the product which standards are met. But many of our 1st grade standards are met through these activities. I have not made the daily data packs for Oct, Nov, Dec, or Jan yet but after I do I plan on putting them all together as a big set and setting a lower proce for all of them. But, I'm going slow and just doing one per month so that won't happen for a while. Email me at mjtmcmurray@gmail.com and I'll send you part of one of the packs to see if you want to use them or not. Thanks Jami!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 9th year teaching; my 8th in first grade. I love teaching children at this age. They are excited to learn and love school! In first grade children make progress so quickly and you can really see them learning new things. I love to see the light come on in their eyes when they are catching on to something new- so rewarding!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Reading block consumes most of my day and it is set up as a "workshop". I teach small reading groups while other students complete independent work stations. Lately I've been trying to set up math in the same way. By teaching smaller groups of students at a time I can individualize my lessons to better meet their needs.
