Day One.

One of my 4th grade classes
These children and I share sentiments on today.  It was absolutely cheer-worthy.  I got invited to eat grapes with the teachers, and, on my way there, I remember thinking, "I love this!"  It caught me off guard, because I've never before loved trying to teach a large group of children, but I think I'm doing well.  The kids in the picture are cheering because they had just brutally killed off one of the players in the "Can you help me?" game, but whatever... I got them interested in the lesson, and by the end of it they could all ask for help in three ways:
  1. Can you help me [name]?
  2. Can you help me with [noun]?
  3. Can you help me [verb]?
Therefore, I call the day a success. :)

I'm reteaching third grade their alphabet... if you have any good ideas on how to do that, please let me know!

  1. The way I know how to teach the alphabet is through pictures... however that only relates to English... like A... apple. I'm sure that doesn't help much.
