Hello. Welcome to Coconut Cutie's Classroom. This is a blog dedicated to dedicated teachers like yourself. Thanks for stopping by!
You see, I have decided to do redo. I haven't been as dedicated to my blog as I would like to be but I intend to change that. Some changes have happened that called me away from my blog so I could focus on those things but now I am ready to spend more time on my blog as well as my teachers pay teachers store.
So what is the big change...moving to a NEW state. That's right and if you know anything about change, it is a lot of work but can be really fun. I have changed states, homes, schools, classrooms, STANDARDS, schedules, etc., BUT the one thing that has not changed (thank goodness) is that I still teach FIRST GRADE!!!-which you know I love. I am loving my new home, school, and classroom. Gotta love a bigger classroom, right? It is one to be jealous of :0) and I LOVE it. I have now had a year in this fabulous classroom and I think I got the classroom flow just as I want it. I will be posting pics as we get back to "Back to School" mode.
So, back to business. Are you on summer break yet? I am! Yay! Friday, our last day with kiddos, was bitter-sweet as always-ready for summer fun but going to miss my fabulous firstie friends, whom I adored.
What do you have planned for summer? I will be doing some traveling but I will also be teaching a couple of sessions at the Frog Street Press SPLASH conference in Dallas, Texas again this year.Will you be there? A colleague and I will be presenting on the art of writing. Our presentation is titled Don't Let Writing be a 3-Ringed Circus. There is still time to sign up and you can find the link here.
Here is sneak preview and a freebie of our presentation. Enjoy! I'll be back tomorrow with a First Day of Summer FREEBIE. Everyone loves a freebie no matter what time of year, right?
Welcome friends! I am a 1st grade teacher with a Master' degree in teaching. I began my journey of teaching in 2006. My first island (ok, classroom) was Kindergarten, which I taught for 3 years and then...I graduated to 1st grade and have been there ever since. LOVE It!!! Years later, my "friends" (aka students) continue to amaze me everyday.
