I moved grade levels with a large chunk of my kids but we also have some new kids that joined our class. The class is mad up of esol, sped, general education, and aap kids. Last year out room was a little less diverse and everyone understood everyone's differences and they embraced it. However, it seems the new comers to our class have not been in a room with kids that are much lower than then and are not seeming to me as welcoming. This has always been my strong suit as a teacher and am worried if I don't nip it in the bud early it may get to far. Any ideas on some great read alouds or lessons?
