I taught Pre-kindergarden for 5 1/2 years before moving on to 5th grade. I have taught 5th for going on 7 years. I also have experience teaching Kindergarten and 3rd grade.
I like to use lots of hands on activities and investigations. I believe in letting the kids be active members of their classroom. I also incorporate smart notebook presentations, powerpoint, videos, and music, After I teach the goal, I have the students practice it through investigations in small groups. Later they complete differentiated menus that offer activities on every learning style.
