Hello all, i'm new to the forum and seeking input. I was approached by my principal and asked if I would be willing to move to 4th grade. I have taught 1st grade for 3 years and am comfortable but the idea of teaching 4th grade reading (it's departmentalized) excites me. I just don't know what to expect. What are the potential benifits to the jump? What about the downfalls? What are things that you think I need to know and think about? Thanks!
