I teach self-contained MD (multiple disabilities) class. For the past two years, I've have 3rd and 4th grade. My principal just gave me the heads up that next year I'll have 2nd-4th grade - 16 of them. I'm really nervous about making that work. My students generally do not work well independently and it will only be me and my para. My classroom technology is also limited. I have four computers, but they don't always work as well as they should. I'm nervous about designing a program that keeps a wide range of learners - in both age and ability - academically focused all day long when there's so many of them and so few of me. Any ideas/suggestions for how to break up things like math, spelling, writing, reading, etc? And would you still do things like science and social studies as a whole group? FYI - my students usually function at about 2-3 years below grade level, sometimes more. Thanks!
