Welcome to Now Starring in Third!

I am so excited to be back blogging after a YEAR hiatus!! I am the author of Langston's Learners, a first grade blog I managed for several years. In 2012, I moved to third grade. I had good INTENTIONS of continuing blogging last year, but it took a back seat as I adjusted to my new role. So to all my families last year, I apologize!
It was a fantastic year. I enjoyed teaching the children I had two years earlier. I've been asked several times which grade level I prefer. I don't really have an answer. I love both grade levels, but for different reasons. I truly enjoyed being exposed to a whole new world of children's literature in third grade. My passion is literacy, which is why I teach Language Arts. I think the favorite part of our day was interactive read aloud. We loved every book, but here were two of my favorites that we read.
Last year was a first for third grade as well. We departmentalized! Our team works closely together to maximize student learning and we are continuing to strengthen our framework. Last year was very successful and we look forward to a new year.

This blog will feature every block, so you will get to see what is going on in throughout the grade level. I am looking forward to getting back into the world of blogging and I hope you will check in often.

  1. Nice to see you back on the blogging scene! You were, after all, my inspiration to begin my blog. I like how you have the Book Wizard on the right; I'm going to have to try it on mine. See, inspiring me again already! :)
