Hi! I’m Kylie and I teach 1st grade in sunny Australia! I'm in my sixth year of teaching and my second year teaching little firsties. I love making games and other activities to reinforce learning in a fun and engaging way. I love sharing, gaining inspiration from fellow teachers and being a part of this wonderful TpT community.
I like to get kids up, moving and involved. I use a variety of materials to teach students who have a wide range of ability levels and interests. I like to use games and activities that are hands-on and engaging for students but also encourage learning and hit the mark educationally.
When I'm not teaching or preparing for the classroom, you can find me spending time with my 15 year old son, playing laser skirmish (love it!), reading or updating my blog at http://downunderteacher.blogspot.com/
