    What are the most important things about your reading and math instruction? :)

    Having a strong curriculum to pull from, and the freedom to stray from it when necessary.

    Differentiating to meet the diverse needs of all learners... teaching in small groups, using a variety of methods of instruction, and allowing students to show their learning in different ways.

    For math: start with mental math, review recent "weaknesses", new lesson, a few challenging problem with new lesson, practice, independent work on iPad or from book.

    For reading: group skill, practice, reading centers (which involves me reading with leveled groups)

    Reading - model comprehension strategies with higher level books through think-alouds and teacger reading books/kids trying the strategy with prompting. Follow that with lower level big books to teach decoding strategies. Students are reading on level text and discussing books in reading workshop every day. Then, I am pulling small groups for guided reading every day, usually I see everyone 3 times a week and my lowest group or 2 get pulled every day for letter/sight word remediation.

    Small group work that reflects my belief that both math and reading skills are developmental. Students must be able to work at the level they are at. Hand's on practice in both areas is crucial.
