“On Any Given Day in First Grade” By Mrs. Karen McGhee
On Any Given Day in First Grade
Huge strides are made in first grade at CCA. Students move from identifying the basic tools to using them in practical ways. From letters to words, from numbers to equations, students move at a fast clip as they acquire new skills. In approaching the curriculum, I apply two rules: Use fun materials familiar to the student, and allow the student opportunities to “be the teacher.” By doing these two simple things, the learning process is much more enjoyable and, therefore, more readily absorbed.
