Hey all, my last day is June 6. I want to do something special with my kids but not a --'you're off I won't be teaching you again type of thing' Just recently I found out that I will have the unique opportunity to loop with my current second graders up to third grade. All parents are on board with the idea. I'm nervous (never teaching third grade before), but excited (with 11 years teach. experience it's time for a new challenge). Our school does not normally do the looping thing, it just worked out that we needed one less 2 teacher and 1 more 3rd teacher.. well here I am. I am aware of many of the advantages, but if anyone has websites, references, ideas, thoughts, anything on the subject I would love to her it ALL!!!! I don't know if I will ever have this rare opportunity again and I want to do everything I can to take advantage of this situation Thank you!
