I'm overbooked!!! I have 3 sections of 24 students each and counting. We're looking for another teacher, in the meantime.... I have to start reading groups. With 1 1/2 hour block....I generally used 40 minutes for guided reading with a class of 18 - 20. 24 puts an extra group in the mix for all 3 blocks. I can't say it's even possible right now. I'm thinking quality is going down.... noise level going up. Anyone did a large group like this before?
