I'm a first grade teacher living in Austin, Texas. This is the fourth year that I have taught first grade. I previously taught third and fourth, but first grade has my heart! I love it!

I have previously blogged about my nine week skills summary that I gave to parents. One of my teammates and I are really focusing on writing this year and decided to create a writing rubric that can be attached to our skills summary. We included just a few components for this first nine week grading period. We plan on adding to it for each nine week period and adjusting it based on our scope and sequence. This year we are implementing a handwriting program and we wanted to give our students time to get some of that under their belts before we started grading any of their handwriting. I also feel that even when students receive handwriting instruction the previous year in kinder they may not have done much writing over the summer and have forgotten many of the expectations.
