After spending 45 years in the field of education, I have retired. I spent 17 years as an college administrator before I taught in a public school. I taught first through sixth grades in a public school for 25 years and taught seventh through ninth grade Language Arts in a private school for three years. After retiring I took a lot of the materials I used in my classroom and made a couple of phonics workbooks for my grandchildren. These materials always helped not only my regular students but those who were gifted, ESL, and those who had learning disabilities. There's something for everyone.
I primarily used cooperative learning groups. I did however use project based learning and many smart board activities as well.
