I teach 30-45 minute groups once a week of 1st and 2nd graders all year, and this collection is more than enough to get me through an entire school year of groups. I can’t absolutely guarantee it will do the same for you, but it’s going to be very close if it doesn’t . . .
You’ll see best practices in gifted education throughout. You’ll see many graphic organizers, age-appropriate and challenging critical thinking questions, participatory reading opportunities, several different kinds of writing activities, art galore, and tons and tons of hands-on activities, projects, and creations.
As always, I provide many examples, detailed explanations, templates, and tons of pictures to make life easier for any teacher.
See individual reviews for more details accounts and comments. All of these lessons are available individually if you like parts of what you see here.
Let's not forget: everything is Common Core State Standard referenced where appropriate.
Note: This collection leans heavily toward 1st and 2nd Grade. I have other individual lessons you'll like for your KG groups. These lessons will definitely extend to 3rd grade.
