I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I have also taught at Gifted and Talented summer camps for many years.
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.
