This year I have moved to a new district. There will be lots of help coming in and out of my room this year. I am sooo happy!!!

    We have 5 sections of first grade and we have: 25, 25, 25, 24, 24.
    Our cap is 29. Last year was the first in awhile that I started at 24 and stayed that way for awhile.
    My first year in first grade I had 30 kids on my roster....we hired another teacher by the end of Sept.

    I have 28. I have no clue where I'll fit all! I think that is way to many. Last year I had 21 and that was really nice.

    Well, with the exception of the ELL class, we all have 29 students now. Our ELL class has 17 students, which is just about perfect for our program. We start GMADE next week. Do you know how long it takes to bubble 29 books? With no planning time? This has been such a long week.

    Wow! We technically have a legal limit of 20 per class, although if a teacher has over that, a new class will not be started until there are at least 10 students over in all grade-level classes.

    I have 20 and the for the first year, every child on my roster showed up. Last year I had 23, 24 with very little room to move. This year is a lot better and I they keep me busy. My smallest 1st grade class was 17 and it was nice.

    I started over the summer with 13 on my list, then gained 2 and lost 1 so now I'm at 14. I feel very lucky to have a class this size considering it will be my first year at this level. Our school is very small and I am the only 1st grade.

    I have 28 , I consider it a BIG NUMBER, specially cause they are so little...
    and as you imagine... CORRECTING AND GRADING is a chaos at school and at homeeeee also...
    I wish the day had 29 hours, I´d go on correcting...
    To be honest, I do not grade everyday, but then the consequence is even worse

    I think the cap for us would be 26 in both classes, then a new teacher would be added. We had 24 last year.

    I have to laugh when we are walking down the hall and other teachers and building guests ask where my line ends.
    I did have one withdraw on Friday. She will now be going to the school where my sister is a first grader.
    The new student that I got on Thursday is 5! He was at a daycare with a kindergarten. He is completely lost, he can't even copy work from the board or a paper in front of him.

    Have had as many as 27, last year 24, this year 19. No para, but I do have a student teacher and expect an intern two days a week next semester. We were projected to have 27ish each (3 track) so we added a 4th to get our numbers down. Hooray! Tell your principal that I said he/she should hire another first grade teacher pronto! ;)

    I have 17 due to the low enrollment. We had 25 last year but we are @ the lowest ever, due to the way the economy has turned. I have an assistant, but sometimes she is helping other teachers.:D
