I am so excited! Soon I will be getting a new look for my blog. Christi Fultz will be designing a new apple themed blog package for me. I had thought about a puzzle piece design to go more so with my blog's name, but I have always loved apples!
You know...come to think of it...I have never explained why my blog is named First Grade Enigmas! Well, I teach first grade-hence the first two words in the blog name are First Grade. How did I come up with "Enigmas"? My family lives on the outskirts of a little town named Enigma. So when trying to name my blog, I kept coming back to the name "First Grade Enigmas".
What does enigma mean?
1. One that is puzzling, ambiguous, or inexplicable.
2. A perplexing speech or text; a riddle.
3. A mystery.
Every year I get a new group of students that are total enigmas to me. I have to work hard to figure out what teaching strategy works best to help them on their journey through first grade. So my little enigmas fit quite nicely with Enigma... Thus First Grade Enigmas was born. Boring story...but the truth.
