Join me Thursday!

It's late Wednesday and I'm sitting here a little nervous for tomorrow morning.

My dear friend Lindsay from Primary Polka Dots and I are hosting three Facebook Live Hops to share reading and writing strategies for your upcoming school year! I'm so excited about this collaboration. Lindsay is pretty amazing when it comes to close reading and you'll want to hear what she has to say!

All three sessions will have different information and since they are videos if you aren't able to watch them live you can watch them later in the day!

See you tomorrow!

A New Blog Name

Hello teacher friends!

Many of you know that two years ago my husband got a job in Seattle and we moved from Texas to Washington. I've been staying at home with my daughter since then and while I'm very attached to the Rowdy in First Grade name, it just doesn't accurately describe my current situation.

Years ago when I started my blog I started it because I wanted to share my ideas and things that worked for me in my first grade classroom. First grade is still my absolute favorite grade, but when I go back into the classroom I want my blog to reflect ideas I have for several grades and not just first grade. 

I have gone back and forth about changing my name for months and months. I searched and searched for clever names and anything I came up with just wasn't me or was already taken. I finally settled on Teaching with Jennifer. 

I hope you will continue to follow me. I have many great ideas and I'm ready to share! Over the next couple of weeks I will continue to make some minor changes to my blog design to help you navigate the information I have. Until then...

Enjoy your holiday weekend!
