My hope is for this blog to become a way I can share some of the things I am doing in my first grade class and also share how I am growing as a a teacher! To start with I supposed I should introduce myself...
Hi, my name is Grace Lovelace and I teach 1st grade at a Catholic school in Maryland. This will be my 5th year teaching 1st grade and I love it! In my personal life I am blessed to have 3 wonderful kiddos, "AJ", "Koey", and "Pie". I am married to my best friend whom I have been dating since I was 18. We have a dog, Max that rounds out our busy life.
This year my AJ will be in first grade and that should be interesting for both of us. My goals for this summer are to put some things I have read about in the blogging world and found on Pinterest in action.
- I have decided on an Owl theme for my classroom
- I am going to incorporate the Daily 5 and Cafe into our required Treasures Basil Series
- I am switching from the "card system" to the clip system
- I hope to come up with a better way to stay on top of paperwork
It is my hope that the next few post can expand of the list above. If anyone is reading this and has suggestions to offer PLEASE SHARE, I am struggling on most!
