My Store is Up and Running!

Hooray!  It took a little time to figure out what I was doing, but my TPT store is finally up and running!  I've been busy this past week making some Mimio presentations and coordinating worksheet activities to go along with them.  We use the Journeys Reading Series in my district so I'm making the Mimio presentations to go along with the phonics skills that are presented each week.  So far I've got the first 5 weeks done.  They introduce the short vowel sounds.  You don't have to use Journeys to find these can use them with any lesson on the short vowel sounds.  If you have a Mimio in your classroom, check them out!

Opening My TPT Store

It's official!  I am a seller on Teachers Pay Teachers!  One of my goals for this summer vacation was to figure out how to get started on Teachers Pay Teachers.  Today I uploaded my very first product.  It's a Mimio board activity for taking attendance each morning.  It has a teddy bear theme (of course!) and turned out quite adorable if I do say so myself!

  It's a free download so go check it out:

I've been busy this week making some other Mimio presentations and will hopefully be uploading them soon.  I hope other teachers like them as much as I do!

My First Post!

I'm super excited about starting my very own teaching blog.  I've been thinking about doing this for over a year now and have finally decided to give it a try.  Let me introduce myself...My name is Natalie and I'm a teacher in southern New Jersey.  This September I'll be starting my 16th year teaching first grade.  I love teddy bears and have them all over my classroom (thus the name of my blog!).  I love making new activities for my students to use in class.  I'm in the process of starting my own shop on Teachers Pay Teachers where I'll be selling some of the things I'm using with my class.  I hope you'll check it out.
