I taught early reading skills in Kindergarten for 18 years. I have been teaching 2nd grade now for 2 years and absolutely love it. It is far less crazy and I can teach small group guided reading in depth.
I teach both reading and math in small guided groups. My students seem to learn more in small groups. I use Daily 5 as my structure for students to have choices in their learning throughout the day. I use a wide variety sensory materials to allow students to maintain focus and continue their learning.
I am a busy Wife, Mother and Teacher. I just want to share some great things that I use in my classroom with other teachers.
