Things are great in room 308!
When I was a kid.....
One way I do this is the use of small groups during writing, reading, and math instruction. Having small groups of students with similar needs means I can target skills and concepts that those particular students need, no matter their level of understanding or mastery. Of course this time is also balanced with whole group teaching, but small groups are where the magic happens!
I started pulling some small groups this week to help me learn as much as I can about what your kiddos know and what they need. Below are some photos of some things we do during the first few weeks of small groups. As the year progresses, we will do more writing and reading in small group.
Matching magnet letters to our ABC charts
We also talked about beginning sounds
Practicing writing beginning sounds on the table (which is already a favorite activity!)
