I teach in a wonderful county in North Carolina that serves students from all sorts of backgrounds. I teach 40 first grade students each year who are bright, sweet, kind and interested in learning more from the world around them. I have an assistant half of the day, in the afternoon, who helps guide groups, monitor and enlighten my students.
Interested, diverse and active are words that I would use to describe my bright, bubbly students in first grade.
My students like to learn, they are curious and they love to move. First graders tend to be an active, bright age group that is so exciting to teach. Reaching students in any and all of their needs is very important to me.
Reading in our classroom is one of the most rewarding times. Daily reading and guided reading provide a quiet time to really comprehend and develop a natural love of reading in all subject areas.
We have a desire for all learners to become masters of real reading in nonfiction texts through text features, fluency and comprehension.
The nonfiction text series will help students to make real world connections, build an understanding of text features and their usefulness and help students to grasp the importance of reading informational texts.
Students should have the opportunity to develop a natural love of reading. Using these nonfiction books and our valued reading time, students can make connections and build a relationship with informational texts. Students look forward to having group discussions and nonfiction books provide real world discussions, connections and resources to learn new information. Thank you for helping us grow our guided reading library and the love of reading.
