Looking for intervention activities for K-1? I've got you covered!


  1. After some trial and error, I was able to successfully combine Treasures with the D5. I teach 3rd, but the format isn't all that different from 1st. I love seeing how you spice Treasures up! Hard to believe you've finished 10 days. We don't even start school for another 9. Glad it's going well.

  2. Abby,

    It's so nice to hear all is going well!! I wish a was a kid in your class! I'd be having so much fun!!
    What is Jitter Juice? Can you give some info on it? Sounds fun!!!


  3. Yes, it is! We started Pete the Cat this week, they love the book and song. I am starting Daily 5 this year. We did Read to Self 3 times today, it was a harder day someone starts reading out loud or humming usually! We are in AZ and we have not been able to go outside during the day because of Extreme Heat Warnings! 112-114 until Wednesday! Ugh!!!! Love your blog, Debi

  4. We read for 7 minutes yesterday and I was so very excited! It was our 6th day of school/5th day of Daily 5. I'm doing the I PICK lesson today! Sounds like things are going great in your room! I hope it stays that way!



  5. So excited to hear about your Daily 5 kick off, Abby! I'm looking forward to trying it in my classroom this year for the first time! Love your blog 🙂 Thanks for inspiring me!!

  6. I am implementing daily 5 and cafe this year! And after a few days I feel like I am finally getting the hang of it 🙂 and I think I've figured out how to incorporate our basal as well! Is this your first year doing daily 5/cafe??

  7. oh perfect! We do respectful, responsible and honest. We spend a lot of time talking about what each of these means and how we can show them in our classroom and other places throughout the school. I love the posters!! I think I will do that and then have each child sign them! 🙂

    Thanks again for a fantabulous blog!


  8. Do you know anyone that has cute social studies and science picture word cards for word walls? I know this has nothing to do with your post, but I have been searching everywhere!


  9. I just have to say I LOVE your Fun with Firsties packet! Jitter Juice was by far, my most favorite activity ever! 🙂

    Also, I changed my blog address, so if you could change it on your sidebar, I'd appreciate it. Thanks! 🙂

  10. Hey Abby! Just wanted to thank you for a fun-filled back to school week! Your "Fun with Firsties" activities were engaging and exciting to teach. My students loved "Jitter Juice" and are still talking about it! What's funny is that there were at least 5 other classrooms at my school that made Jitter Juice. You have wonderful ideas and products. Thanks for offering them so others can touch the lives of their students. Your impact on children and their education is far-reaching! Check out my back to school post where I celebrate some of these activities.
