What educators are saying

Switched from upper to lower elementary this year. This was an excellent resource to get my head wrapped around my new grade level.
Used Tara’s Kinder Survival for several years-saved me!!! When I got moved to 1st grade at the end of the last school year—I KNEW I needed this resource to save me once again!?


What is FirstieSurvival?

Do you have a quick moment? Watch **THIS** quick video to see the packet in ACTION!

FirstieSurvival Curriculum is a week long program designed to assist teachers in their first week of first grade. This program was designed by a teacher, for teachers in hopes that all necessary material could be found in one document. Furthermore, that the majority of the material could be edited to fit YOUR individual needs. The program consists of one week’s worth of lesson plans, first week teacher necessities, and an abundance of first week tips and tricks. Allow FirstieSurvival to assist you in making this your best year yet!

I already have your other programs... do I need this?

Well, that is really up to you! However, I am confident that new and veteran teachers will find something within this packet that they fall in love with! Knowing that nearly all documents are editable is also a great option! The reader's workshop lesson plans also include a modified close read using, The Energy Bus!

Hmmm, I've seen ___ on your blog before. Is this packet filled with 'repeats?'

It's quite possible that you might find a page or two that have been found on my blog or I've posted before. However, I am certain that this packet has been priced accordingly to not charge for those pages. Yet, the ease of having them all in one place outweighs the 'repeat' label.

Be sure to view the preview to see more of the packet!
