My name is Hilary Lewis. I am a 2nd grade teacher in Carmel, Indiana at College Wood Elementary. I LOVE 2nd graders! They are sweet people and they make me laugh daily!
I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades in my 28 years of teaching. Every grade has its perks, but I'm happy with my 2nd graders!
I am someone who doesn't like to do the same things over and over again...that is why I am always creating new activities to use in my classroom. I feel so lucky to be able to share some of my creations with others on this blog and on teaching marketplaces such as Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook.
I am big on word sorts of all sorts! I think that kids need to have as much exposure to words as they can. I like to put corresponding pictures with my words so that they can use the picture to help them figure out the word . . . so not only are they practicing the craziness of the English language, but also practicing vocabulary as well!
I used guided reading and the Daily 5 in my classroom and have recently begun to use guided math as well. I totally enjoy making 'math mysteries' for my math kiddos . . . They are correlated with the Common Core State Standard and they're fun and educational!
I'd love to hear from you! If you have a need to contact me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
