LIFE IN FIRST GRADE
Every day we arrive with great enthusiasm and energy to learn new things. We tackle many new skills in Reading, Math, Writing, Science and more. We hope you enjoy reading about our academic adventures!
Today is Move-Up Day. Each grade level from K-4 gets to move up a grade level this afternoon to meet next year's teacher.
My current students finished a FANTASTIC digital writing project in which they created a book highlighting some memories of their first grade year to share with the Kindergarten students coming to my room. I know my students loved making the book and watching the finished product. I think it was a great way for my first graders to showcase their writing, reading, and technology skills in one final assignment.
I've been teaching first grade for the past seven years. My first career upon graduation was in the field of event planning.
I have a husband who teaches 9th grade English. We have a 3 year old daughter and 2 dogs whose names are Charlie and Cyrano.
