    So, I've been teaching Kindergarten for the last 4 years and I'm looking to move schools. I've been asked to teach a model 2nd grade lesson in a couple weeks. I haven't been given any specifics other than the school really likes small groups & hands on learning. I thought I'd put some feelers out there to see if anybody had any really cool ideas or links to blogs etc. Thanks!

    Do you have any topics or at least a subject you'd like to do the lesson on?

    If you're doing math, using pattern blocks to model fractions is good. The yellow hexagon is a whole, the green triangles are sixths, the blue parallelograms are thirds, and the red trapezoids are halves. If you give students a few minutes to "play" with the blocks before teaching, many will discover this on their own. They may also notice that 3 triangles make a red trapezoid. I use this noticing later on in the unit to teach basic equivalent fractions.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm currently teaching a non-fiction unit and my students are having a blast.
