First of all I want to thank anyone and everyone who has stopped by my little part of the this huge world we call the internet. I am so honored that you have taken the time to stop by and hear what I have to say, see what I have created, and tried out some of my ideas in your own classroom.
I have known for a couple of weeks and now it's time to tell you. It has taken me that long to get use to the idea myself because it was not exactly what I wanted to do. I will be changing jobs next year. I will be leaving the classroom to teach transition. What is transition...you ask.
It is 5th graders who need some work on 4th grade skills in order to pass a test.
I have taught Fourth Grade before and usually tutor them. As a matter of fact, I did this past year after school for a couple of months. Also, my administrators were very complimentary of me, what I do and gave me exact reasons at to why I was the right person for this job. My friends also agreed. THANKS friends!
I will definitely miss my little first grade friends and this will be a very sad end of the year for me. I plan to cherish every minute of it.
So, what about my blog???
I'm not changing it! My heart still belongs to First Grade!
Many years ago, long before blogs and TPT, when I thought about publishing my activities is when I first came up with the name First Grade...a la Carte. So when I contemplated creating a blog it was a natural fit. The name came from the way I teach. I pick and choose from many resources in the way that one picks and chooses from a buffet or salad bar. It will just become a little more diverse. I plan to broaden the scope of my games and activities to include more grade levels like say 4th grade.
I hope that you will continue to stop by and check to see what I'm up to.
So in the spirit of my blog, I have to have some cute graphic because my posts are usually full of them.
I will sign off tonight with this...
