I am a second grade teacher, but taught a first/second combination class for two years and just first grade for 5 years before teaching 4th grade for eight years.
I like to use hands-on activities in my classroom to reinforce the skills the children are learning. I am thankful to be in a building that has a LOT of technology, so I use my Smart Board daily.
