hey guys, in my first year teaching 3rd grade. It seems like it is a ton of planning! At my school we have every subject, everyday. Plus we have the added class of bible. We also have a pretty long school day. One day I know I want to teach social studies and only have one planning and just teach the same thing over again. I feel like I don't have really quality lessons as I have so much to plan for. I know some of it may be the fact that I am a first year teacher also.... but does anyone else feel this way with planning?
