Real Life in First Grade

Welcome to Real Life in First Grade! I've been teaching first grade for over eight years now, and while I've been lurking around the blog scene for years as a follower, this will be my very first attempt as a blogger. I have been so incredibly inspired by some of the amazing teachers who have documented the happenings in their own classrooms and shared effective and fun resources they've created. Blogs such as The First Grade Parade and The Inspired Apple have influenced me to be a better teacher. I believe they have changed the game for teachers everywhere across the country, especially in a time when Pinterest is blowing up, and new ideas are being exchanged more often, and faster than ever before. After years of wanting to write my own blog, I am finally at a place in my life where I am ready to make blogging a part of it. I am beyond excited to share the ideas, resources, and creations that have worked for me and my students. This blog is most definitely a work in progress, but I am truly looking forward to what lies ahead!
