I have been teaching for nineteen years here in Kentucky. Each year my classroom consists of a theme, which is currently, "Space." I feel that it is important to motivate first grade students to want to come and learn each day. I keep this in mind as I organize my classroom and when planning and creating lessons to be taught.
