About Me

My name is Amber Polk and I am from right outside of Charlotte, NC. I have been teaching for five years.  My first year I spent teaching Fifth Graders and for the past four years I have been teaching Third Grade. I love third grade more than I ever thought I would!   My favorite thing to teach are the Content Areas and then integrating them with Math and Reading.  I am a big technology buff too!

I love blogging, it totally makes me a better teacher!  I have to be creative....so I can blog about!  I am also completely Pinterest obsessed and stalk my favorite teaching blogs on a daily basis!

One day, I might have more of a life, but right now teaching takes up most of my time.  :)

  5. I'm so glad that I found your blog! I am a first year, third grade teacher in Davie County, NC but I grew up in Charlotte, riiiight beside Gaston County! It's nice to find similar teachers so close to home :)

  6. Another NC teacher here. I also taught fifth grade for MANY years and moved down to third grade last year. Just found your site while hunting for things while my student teacher is teaching. Thanks for your ideas!

  7. Hi! I came across your "Fun in the sun" worksheet on TpT and I love it! I used it today with my summer school students. I just wanted to make you aware that there is a mistake on the key. #14 is 3X3 since it has 3 boys making sand castles. Not sure if you caught that, or someone pointed that out, but thought I would let you know. Keep up the great work!

  8. Hi Amber. I am actually following you from New York! I just came across your blog and I love it! will be tuning in more often. Thanks!


Leave some love!
