This is the first year the other 1st grade teacher and I are switching our classes. We switch 3 days a week, and she teaches science to my kids, while I teach math to hers. The only problem is we have about 50 minutes at a time, which is not enough time. I have her doing calendar and spiral review with her kids, but even with that I am not getting through the material quickly enough. She suggested I could send home their practice pages as homework to clear up time. This is what I have been doing: math warm up Mini lesson hands-on practice pages They don't get through their practice pages, so I do end up sending it home for homework. The thing is that I will be starting math centers soon, and I don't know how to successfully do that with her class in 50 minutes. For those of you who do switch, how do you do it successfully? So far I hate switching.
