Thinking about Read Alouds!!!

I am planning read alouds today for my first graders, and I think I am going to use the backwards design approach, and go research some classics to help me formulate a yearly overview for my students. I'll keep you posted on what I come up with for the year.

My First Post

Well I am totally new to posting, but not teaching. I have been in the field for over 20yrs, and each yr I learn something new. I began my career in preschool, than elementary. I taught primary for my first two yrs of teaching at the elementary level, and the past six yrs I have been teaching intermediate. Well, I am excited to say I am baaaaaaacccccccckkkkkkk to primary and very excited, but I feel like a brand new teacher. So I am starting to blog so I can discuss and get ideas from other primary teachers.
