One Word...Instagram!

I have found a new love and its name is Instagram! I've had a personal account for about a year now and recently realized what the hype is all about. So, I ventured off and turned it into a personal/teaching shared account. If y'all haven't jumped on the bandwagon, now is the time! What is more fun than seeing what other teachers are doing in their rooms? It's a great new way to get ideas, comment/talk with other teacher bloggers, and get a peek inside some great teacher's classrooms!

Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants and Michelle at Apples and ABC's have come up with a genius idea.

Here's how it works:
1. Create an Instagram account and join in on the fun!
2. Post a picture on Tuesday of happenings in your classroom.
3. Tag the picture using the hashtag #teachertalktuesday.
For the Love of First Grade is on Instagram so don't forget to follow!
Here are a few of my favorite posts from the last 2 weeks:
We finished our poetry unit learning all about alliterations. Here is the chart my kiddos helped me create.
 My newest freebie for Mother's Day was in the works last week, and was posted on the blog yesterday (check Sunday's post)!
While blogging Saturday morning, my cat decided to catch, tackle, and take on this fierce lizard!!

Come join us on Tuesday for our first #teachertalktuesday! And don't forget to link up with Michelle over at Apples and ABC's for an Instagram linky!


  1. So glad I found your blog! I am marrying a firefighter too...next month! Firefighters and first grade teachers must be a good combo. :) Thanks for leaving some love on my blog post!
