Hooray! This project is fully funded
I love teaching first grade because it is such an important year for students. I often refer to First grade as “Boot Camp” in a child’s school career. It is a time of transitions, adjustments and hopefully tremendous growth as each student acquires new skills.
My students are working on their incredible and exciting academic journey to extend their skills as a reader, author, mathematician, scientist, and so much more.
They are "bright-eyed and bushy tailed", ready to take on their schooling journey. With so many curricular demands it is sometimes hard for them to settle and focus. We take lots of brain breaks with movement activities that help. My kiddos try hard and are doing well.
Beginning readers apply reading strategies when reading alone and also when reading with a partner. This storage bench will work well for storing individual reading binders and provide a space for partners to read together as they coach each other towards success with reading accuracy, comprehension and fluency.
Today's students thrive on choice of options.
When a young mind is eager and engaged, doing what they want and need to do, learning happens! Read to Someone is a daily routine in our classroom. This new seating option is sure to entice my kiddos to spend time reading thus getting better at reading, and enjoying it with a friend.
