Seven years as a third grade teacher.
I am a fan of the interactive mini lesson. I love hands on, creative activities as an effective way to hold students' attention and frequently alternate between whole group and small group instruction. There is nothing more satisfying than finding ways for kids to enjoy learning...especially those topics that are considered to be dry or boring!
