I like to try different approaches, but focus mainly on a 'whole group - small group - independent practice' format. I believe the way you set up your classroom space speaks very loudly to the students, parents and others visitors about the kind of learning that goes on there. I don't have a teacher desk, I have a guided reading rainbow-shaped table; my students desks are always in pods, facing all directions; I teach from a variety of locations in the classroom (carpet, in front of smart board, back, sides...)
Not yet! :)
Spent four years at a French university, getting an education degree, with a minor in French, and a major in Elementary (Generalist)
I'm a busy, 31 year old elementary teacher. I teach mainly in French, and I always find it difficult to find resources that are bilingual, or French, especially if you want them to be cute and not too costly. I love being creative and have numerous artsy hobbies, including; scrapbooking, watercolour painting, knitting, sewing, crochet, quilting.
