How much fun is one?

I am SO excited to say welcome to More Fun in 1! My name is Danielle and I am a first grade teacher from Alberta. I graduated university with a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Education in December 2014. This is my second year teaching grade one and let me tell you, I LOVE IT! I'm loving it so much that I have to share what is happening in my classroom. 

Check out my class - at the end of a loooong, hot day!

I might be extremely a bit biased but I think grade ones have the most fun. The progress and growth I have seen in my students this year blows my mind on a daily basis. They entered in September working on the alphabet and printing their name. Now, it's almost the end of the year and they are READING and WRITING! And all the while we have had so much fun. 

My class is a busy place with many different centers and activities happening at the same time. Right now we are jumping into a unit on the needs of PLANTS! This is one of my favorite units as there are so many fun, hands-on activities for my kiddos to delve into their learning with. 

My student's amazing greenhouses! Find the template here.

I will be posting about all the crazy, fun and engaging activities that are happening in my class. I can't wait to share my classroom and all of our adventures with you! 

Thanks for stopping by!!
