BALANCED LITERACY IN FIRST GRADE!
I can’t believe this is year 27!
MY own twins were in first grade
My first year of teaching!
( NOT in my class…TG…)
Each year things CHANGE!
Literacy has changed!
It is SO very important!
CHANGE is NOT a BAD thing!
It can make you rethink, reevaluate, redo, remake, revitalize!
After 27 years…I can HONESTLY say..
I will NOT throw out the BABY with the BATHWATER!
OK…We have a new curriculum. AGAIN!
EVERY 7 YEARS.
Whether you want it …or NOT!
And so, here we go again.
It really doesn’t matter what “program” you give me.
Some days I can…some days I can’t.

I am using my interactive writing skills to
#3 Word Work
And we read..This happens during our morning
