It has been over eight years since I taught 1st grade, and it has taken me just about eight weeks to get an idea of what I need to do. I have learned fast that my first graders need a lot of word study and picture cues. So, I have been very busy creating flash cards, and gluing and pasting. I don't think I have glued this much in ages. However, I am truly enjoying first grade :) my students are eager to learn and I look forward to teaching them daily. I have been blessed to use 10 ipads daily, my challenge with them is getting the most bang for my buck. Meaning I only get them for a few hours a day and I am trying to find a way to incorporate them better in my literacy block. I'll keep you posted on my ipad progress .
