First Grade and the lightbulb moment

I realize the last week that my firsties aren't the same little guys I met in August. All my hard work is paying off (although it was a learning yr for me, and I have so many ideas on improving next yr), but its like all their little light bulbs are coming on. They are reading and doing so much better math. I knew my students were learning when I taught upper grades, but I can really see the growth in first. They have come along way, and it is so great to see them grow. I can't wait to next yr to improve upon what I have learned about teaching first grade :) I am loving it :)

Glad to be back I hope everyone is doing gooooood :)
