I am currently freaking out about how much my students have to learn this year and how far behind they already are in first grade. I know logically it’ll be fine, and I just got a coteacher (thank goodness) which will help TREMENDOUSLY with management and getting kids more personalized support. But I’m still freaking out. 13 of our 27 students are already below grade level in reading (though 5 are getting sooo close to catching up). 5 of my students don’t speak English and are still working on recognizing numbers and letters. One student is on the verge of being evaluated for sped. We just got new curriculum that I have no clue how to fit all of it into the day. We’ve barely done any writing or science or social studies even though those subjects are so fun to teach and the kids love them. Phonics is only happening now because my coteacher took it on. We want to double dip groups in reading but I don’t know how there is time for that. I’m just... stressed and panicking and I need some reassurance that my kids will be fine and that they’ll learn what they need to learn. And that I don’t have to be a miracle worker, because I feel like that’s what it will take.
