Without going into my entire story, I have taught in the past, not at this level. For what it matters, this is my first time teaching, and I have ES grades 2-4. I am expected to use the 2-4 grade curriculum in the class and students are in grade correct curriculum. Problem, they function 2-3 grades below. (I was told differentiate) I have no mentor, no principal, and really was told here’s your room, here’s the books. I’m not having 11 students and they are ALL over the place with their abilities. I have one GREAT aide, but she is used to the old teachers way, and I can seem to figure how what to do or if I should even change it!! Any suggestions or lesson plan ideas for mixed ages?
