I am a first grade teacher in South Carolina. I have taught kindergarten and first grade and LOVE all things primary!
I think students learn best in an environment that is set up for them to be independent, self motivated learners. I like to foster this environment by providing choice, differentiation, and creating classroom routines and structures that allow for indepence. I use Balanced Literacy, Daily Five, Guided Reading, Reading Workshop, Math Workshop, Guided Math, Writing Workshop, and an inquiry based approach to teaching Science and Social Studies.
