Let's Play I Have, Who Has? with Freebielicious

We've got some exciting news to share! We've joined the fun over at Freebielicious. You can now find us fluttering over on their blog too.
We're kicking things off with a fun game our class loves to play called "I Have, Who Has?"
If you're just getting started, you can head over to the first post in our Back to School Edition {here}. Follow the clues for some of our best back to school tools!
If you followed our clue from A Special Kind of Class...
Who has been job share teaching partners for 13 years and known to show up at school wearing identical outfits without even planning it?
You're right...It's us!
We found each other through our teaching union 13 years ago when we were new moms looking to move to part time teaching. Our job share was born and we haven't looked back since. If you're not sure what a job share is...We share a classroom and contract. Christy teaches Mondays and Tuesdays, Tammy teaches Thursdays and Fridays and we alternate Wednesdays. So, you would think being on completely opposite schedules and all we'd come up with our own wardrobes. But, nope! On numerous occasions over the years we've shown up dressed like twinsies without even planning it! This is how we showed up to head to Vegas last summer. Gah!
We also have our favorite classroom program, Listen Up ~ Auditory activities for little listeners.

These daily, differentiated listening activities have helped us teach kids how to actively listen in the classroom. They think they're playing a game, which makes it fun too. The kicker? We only say each direction 1 time. No more! They learn quickly that they need to listen up! 
If you'd like to try our listening activities, you can grab our Listen Up Freebie.
You can grab all of our Listen Up activities and save during the big Teachers Pay Teachers Back to School Sale!
