Working Like a First Grader

You know what is amazing about teaching first grade? What makes it all worthwhile - the untied shoes, the sneezing in your face, the constantly repeating of directions ...


It's the way that they hang on to your every word and internalize it like you've just laid upon them one of life's truth. It's this very narrow window of time where the children are just aware enough to start listening to what you're saying but not too cool to blow you off. It's the pocket (sports analogy there, you're welcome!) in terms of influence and part of why we love teaching first grade so much.

WE HAVE THE POWER!!!


We try to capitalize on this all we can and one way is with our "Working Like a First Grader" expectations. We make this chart together of all the ways that first graders work, building it up to be a huge deal and they eat it up!

First grade is a big deal, friends - work it!
