I taught third grade for 9 years before deciding to stay home with my 2 children in 2013. I have collaborated to vertically align curriculum with teachers from PK-5 and tutored students in grades 2-5.
I love to foster whole class and small group discussions. I have found the most effective strategy to be small group instruction through work stations/centers, which the students really enjoy! We love fun vocabulary building activities as well as learning through the use of songs, chants, and rhymes. It is vital that each student has a sense of belonging and security in order for learning to take place!
