Some Exciting News!!

If you follow me on instagram (msleslieann01) or Facebook, then you already know that I'm moving up to 5th grade next year!
I am so excited and happy! It was a hard decision to leave 1st grade, but I can't wait to get started working with my new 5th graders. :)
After much debate on what to do about my blog (change the name completely, change the name to Life in first and fifth, etc) I've decided to start a new blog completely dedicated to fifth grade. I plan on keeping Life in First Grade around and posting ideas that pertain to lower grades like I've done in the past and I also still plan on creating primary activities that you can use in your classrooms. It probably won't be as often as I usually did, but they will still be there! Once I get the new blog up and running, I'll post the address here so you can follow. :)
***UPDATE: you can now find Life in Fifth Grade here
Right now I'm loving summer, blissfully laying out and enjoying every minute. 
Happy Summer, y'all!

Favorites in First-Updated!

I've been going through some of the first products I uploaded to TpT lately and updating those that look a bit shabby. I recently finished my Favorites in First: an end of the year activity
Your students will create their own little book to take home that has all their favorite events, memories, subject, and more from first grade. Check it out here. :) It's on sale tonight and tomorrow as part of TpT's Teacher Appreciation Sale!
