A day in my life as a first grade teacher and my day now as a reading specialist are a lot different. But the one thing that hasn’t changed is I still love to have fun. It’s a lot harder to fit in the big fun I used to, because my intervention time is limited. This has been one of the toughest changes for me. Between 8:15 and 11:00 I take a group 2 groups of kinders, a group of firsties, second graders and third graders. Talk about craziness! We have lots to cover during our group time as well. I try to review their sight words, phonics, we do guided reading, and comprehension. So I’ve created a bunch of activities that we’ll be using this week with some of my groups. I thought I’d share them with you.
