Welcome to Teaching Ace! This is a blog primarily for early elementary school teachers who are looking for ways to increase authenticity in the classroom. Our young learners need and crave real world skills, and too often people feel they need to “dumb down” what they are doing with young children, or make them super “cutesy” with little content. Teaching Ace is a place where you can find ideas and tools for teaching young children in developmentally appropriate ways while preserving authenticity. Real words, real images, real world reasons to read and write, and more! Thanks for reading!
