Aimee {Primarily Speaking}

Hey everyone!  I'm Aimee from Primarily Speaking.

I am SUPER excited to be a part of this collaborative blog!  Primary Powers is your source for all things primary!  If you ask me, all teachers are superheroes, so we sure do hope you visit our blog regularly to recharge those superhero powers as we share ideas, tips and tricks, and much more!

Here's a bit about me...I have been teaching for 10 years.  Thankfully, all of those years have been spent in second grade! The idea of any other grade level sends me into panic mode.  Literally.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have a five year old daughter who is quite headstrong when she wants to be.  We enjoy hanging out at home, playing with squirt guns, and eating out at our favorite restaurants.  If we're feeling really crazy, we might even rent a movie. What can I say, we know how to party!

I love chips and salsa.  I really, really do. I've been known to munch on them as I cook dinner.  Don't tell the healthy eating police, please.  And, as far as I'm concerned, one can never drink too much coffee.  Well, OK, I suppose that isn't entirely true, but without that stuff at my fingertips, I wouldn't make it through the day.

Now that you know a bit about me, it's time to share something SUPER with you!  If you're looking for a fun way to motivate your students to write, give these superhero Roll-a-Story boards a try!  My students love, love, love them, and I hope yours do too!



  1. Thank you for the fun activity Aimee! My class will love it! I enjoyed reading your post! :)

  2. Chips and salsa are one fabulous snack/dinner. All I need is cilantro and some nice tomatoes to make the magic happen. Any good recipes?
