I have been a First Grade teacher for eleven years. I absolutely LOVE teaching first grade! I am passionate about giving my students opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and exploring the world around them through guided inquiry. I created the blog to allow parents and families to get a glimpse into the daily happenings of our classroom and for other primary teachers to gain ideas to enhance their teaching. With 21st century tools, such as blogs, we can work together to give our students opportunities we never before imagined.
This is my FAVORITE event of the year! I have done this event for several years and each year I love it more. After several weeks of studying and writing poetry, students performed their original poetry for a packed house. We set the mood by wearing all black, dimmed the lights, and had jazz music playing in the background. We even had a "fire" going. Here are a few students during our rehearsal.
Video was taken of the performance. Of course, I didn't download it before break, so as soon as we return from Spring Break, I will post the video.
After the performance, we enjoyed coffee and treats. Thank you to Starbucks, Panera, Krogers, and Meijers for your donations! I want to give a shout out to Mrs. C and Mrs. W for organizing the entire event. Thank you to everyone who attended.
