This is my fifth year as a teacher. I spent the first three years of my career teaching Kindergarten, then made the move up to second grade this year and now I'm in first!
I am all about the small group/center type of classroom! Both of my literacy and math blocks are flexible small groups. I use Daily 5 Reading in my classroom for my literacy block, which gives them 5 different opportunities for focused practice with reading, writing, and spelling. I use Daily 4 Math, which includes Math With a Teacher, Math With a Partner, Math with a Computer, and Math By Yourself.
