(Younger students) You can get up and use the restroom freely as long as the teacher is not in the middle of teaching a lesson. (Older students) One student at a time my use the lavatory pass. They must return with the pass within three minutes or they will lose the privilege of going to the lavatory freely.Fire Drill

The teacher will read a poem a loud to the classroom once. She will then hang the poem up in front of the class on the white board. The students will be asked to read the poem a loud with the teacher. They will then go over what the poem is about. The class will partner up, and discuss with their partners, what they each think the poem is saying. They will use "clues" and their "background knowledge" to make an inference. The class will then go back to their seats, and be asked to draw out a picture of what they "infered" about the poem, and write out their inference. The purpose of this assignment is to teach the class what an inference is, along with practicing writing skills, and creativity.
I graduated from Florida State University in 2011, with a Family and Child Sciences Degree, minoring in Psychology. This is my first year teaching, and I have done all of my observations in the first grade classroom. I am on the board at The Children's Cancer Center, where I work to provide kids with cancer as normal of a life as possible, while they are struggling with this difficult battle. My passion is working with kids, and I am very excited for this journey of teaching!
