This week's primary teacher feature is coming to us from the first grade team. It is their fabulous team leader, Jennifer Johnson.
I will never forget the first time I saw first grade journals. It was in Jennifer Johnson's classroom last year. I remember thinking....Holy cow, these journals are amazing. Her first graders were writing....and they were writing a lot. They were writing on topic and they did so consistently.
Because of the way we have split the grade levels this year, I do not have the opportunity to go through the primary classrooms as often unless I am looking for something specific. So having the opportunity to really look at one primary classroom over the course of a week, while I capture the essence of that teacher has been amazing. There are always so many details I never notice otherwise, and Jennifer's classroom was no exception.
