My principal has decided that, because of numbers of first and second grade students, I'm going to teach a 1/2 multiage classroom next year. I've never taught in a multiage classroom, we've never had a multiage classroom at my school, and no one in my school (including the principal) has any info about multiage classrooms. So, I'm on my own. I don't know where to begin. I have to teach certain parts of the school curriculum, but I do have some latitude, especially in literacy. I plan on doing the Daily 5. I bought a book Creating the Multiage Classroom - Sandra Stone, and I'm looking for nearby schools with multiage programs that I can visit. I'm very nervous about creating and teaching in a classroom about which none of my colleagues or administrators have information and in which they have no experience. Any ideas about where I should start in terms of setting up a program/classroom would be very much appreciated.
