Teaching first grade is so rewarding. Most 1st graders come to me as nonreaders (below a level C) and they leave being able to read a level J or above.
There is so much tangible growth that I am amazed every year at how far the kids come!
There is so much expected of them during 1st grade. I love that the kids still love school and learning at this age and are so excited about all of the little things.
First grade focuses so much on learning to read. Children constantly have a book in their hands.
Where do you like to sit when you read?
I love sitting on the couch to read. It's so comfortable and relaxing. That's exactly what I want to be able to offer my kids in my classroom!
Our classroom currently has 24 desks with regular chairs. I want to be able to give the students a reading corner that is fun and enjoyable for them. I think having an area like this will bring some excitement and encouragement to our class during reading centers.
