This year I am teaching a small k/1 split. The k's are all day (canada), so it will be challenging I am sure...but I am up for it! This is only my second year of teaching my own class and last year I didn't do any monthly themes. This year I want to, but I can't really figure out how. I have a lot of ideas and resources/websites full of ideas...apples, bears, pumpkins, popcorn etc but what subject is this? I have a set program for math and L.A. so I wouldnt be using any of the monthly theme for those subjects. I am not sure how I would work it into our science and socials curriculum either. When you use themes are they just kind of extra? It would work for art of course, but other than that it would be enrichment I guess? How do you organize your year plans using themes?
