Welcome to My Blog!

Welcome to my brand new 2nd grade blog! I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year! I have been searching through blogs and pinterest trying to find ideas for my class this year. I have taught 5th grade the past two years so I am ready and excited for a big change! I just wanted wanted to share some of the awesome resources I have been looking at while I prepare!
I have decided I am going to use the Daily Five method this year. I recently ordered my copy of the book as well as the CAFE book.

I have also spent many hours searching Pinterest! It is my new obsession for everything!

Click here to follow my 2nd grade board!

As I mentioned earlier, I have found SO many blogs with tons of resources! That is what inspired me to start my own blog. I feel like I have so much information I need to share! Check out a few of my favorite blogs:

Ms. Male at A Day in the Life of a 2nd Grade Teacher

Miss Kranz at a day in the life of miss kranz

Amanda at One Extra Degree

I could overwhelm you with about 10 more but I'll leave at that today!

What's to come:

* My Daily 5 and CAFE books are supposed to arrive tomorrow so I will be sharing what I learn and create for my class

* I should be able to get back into my classroom next week so keep an eye out for before and after pictures! My color theme this year is black, red, and white with polka dots and maybe some Zebra print here and there!!!

Thanks for Reading!

Love, Mrs. Norman


  1. Welcome to 2nd Grade.
    I found your blog on Miss. Kranz Blog.
    I am going to start the Daily 5 and Cafe this year too. I'd love to chat about how you plan to use it in your classroom. I'm a bit overwhelmed with trying to do them both at the same time. Can't wait to see your ideas.
