A Guest Post by friend, mentor and first grade teacher, Amber Rausch of First Grade Diva Creations!
My name is Amber Rausch from First Grade Diva Creations. Thank you to That Fun Reading Teacher for allowing me to guest post here on her blog! I have had so much fun participating in Swap Meet!
I had the great pleasure of swapping resources with Sandra Farrell from Sandra’s Savvy Teaching Tips!

WHAT ELSE I LOVE
Writing is hard work for the primary student. (Can I have an “Amen!” from my fellow primary teachers?) I go crazy for cute ways to display my firsties’ hard work. Check out the picture to see how cute the writing display is in this resource. (Shouldn’t they hold the whole world in their sweet little hands?) Having children participate in shared research is important! This is a great way to meet the shared research standard.
Students begin the journey of
figuring out where they are in
the world by going from them-
selves on out to the world
community. The teacher leads
them through the research.
I love Sandra’s suggestion to have students write a directed sentence and then allow them to write a sentence of choice. This gives this resource a great relational element. You learn a lot about what is important to your students by what they chose to write. (Look closely at my pictures! My little dancer loves her Kidz Bop! How sweet is she?) Thanks, Sandra for creating such a great resource!
The giveaway has ended, but keep going to check out the other excellent blogs and product reviews! You’ll be glad you did!
