Welcome to sasd1.blogspot.com This is our first post and I look forward to working with your grade level to make this blog a valuable tool for your own professional learning.

New initiatives are best implemented when they result in more efficient work, and I’m convinced that you will find this “virtual learning community” can become a real time-saver as you collaborate with your grade-level partners.

Lots of conversation and support will be coming in the months ahead, but for now I just want to welcome you to the world of Web 2.0. One author calls this the, “read and write” internet. I look forward to reading and creating a wonderful space together….Dave

Greetings and welcome back to another inviting year.

"If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer ...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in! Come in!"

Shel Silverstein

I'm beginning my journey as an "official" blogger, with a bit of fear about the notion of such a public exchange. But since we're among friends here in the SASD, let's take the risk of asking questions, sharing successes,and providing resources for one another. Looking forward to some great discourse here on the first grade blog with teachers who are indeed my "kindred spirits!" Jump in and join the conversation.
