Advice from a 1st Grader...for free!

My kiddos have been working on writing some advice for the Kindergartners who will be 1st graders next year. As they finish, they have been presenting to the Kinder classes. They are totally loving it! After presenting, some of them will say "Are there any questions?" It is too stinking cute. Here are a few examples of what they said.
"Do you listen to your teacher now?" :)
"My favorite place to go was school, and you will like it too."

Oh that  second one just melts my heart!

Are those bubble borders not the cutest?! I found those in a set on TPT for $1. Yeah. ONE DOLLAR! They can be found in Ms. Talley's Store.

You can DL the writing papers by clicking the pic below.  They go all the way up to 5th grade because that is what my mom teaches and she wanted to do it too. :)

Hope you like it!


  1. This is great! I'm definitely going to have my current students write these for my students that I get next year. I love the bubble borders also. Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I like the one that says you are suppose to love your teacher and if you do you can get on the computer:)
    What a great writing idea!

    1. Haha! She had a whole list of things you could do but I only took a picture of the front page.

  6. Oh my word I thought the same thing was hilarious!! 'you're supposed to love your teacher! And if you do....' what happens if you don't!? Hehe

  14. I know this is unconventional but I am one of your followers, I have not been on in a while due to things going on within my school district that have made it hard to contribute. I wrote a post on my blog today briefly letting people know about what is going on. If you could stop by and read it and spread the word to ask others to read it I would appreciate it.
    Thank You With All The Love,

  15. Just found your site on a top 50 blogs list. I love the advice pages and am headed over to the TpT store you mentioned to check out the dots paper. Stop by my blog sometime.

  16. Hi, I'm your newest follower. I loved the letters, its so fun to know what is going on in student's minds.

    I will be teaching first grade next year. I taught it a few years back but then had to try a few others things (second, gifted, kindergarten). I liked them all but first grade has my heart and I am excited to go back.
