I am SO proud of my first grade babies and their science fair projects. They met and exceeded my way high expectations. I mean, they are in FIRST GRADE and they can do some AMAZING things! And in a really excited moment when I was telling them how proud I am, I promised treats for tomorrow. The problem here is that they've had A LOT of treats lately. I gave them new pencils, stickers and notebooks for the 100th day, and every sweet treat you can imagine for Valentine's day. We have free time each week as one of their postive behavior incentives. Any new ideas? I'm not regretting promising them something special, but I wish I had thought of what I wanted to do/bring before I promised it for tomorrow!
I'm a first grade teacher in Texas and I LOVE LOVE LOVE my job! I've been teaching since 2005 and I hope I always enjoy it as much as I do now. I have a BA in French from The University of Texas and a M Ed in Elementary Education from Texas State University.
