So Im a brand new Kindergarten teacher (7 years of Pre-K in a child care setting before this) and this week has been all trainings and meetings. Being a newbie I'm hearing lots of terms that I'm unfamiliar with and its very overwhelming. By unfamiliar I mean that I've heard them but have no experience and don't know where to start. This is so hard - makes it hard to feel successful and that I can do this! Reading Groups: 1) What exactly are these (is this the same as guided reading) 2) Where do I start? (How do I assess my kids to put them into groups?) 3) What kids of things are the other kids doing? AR 1) How do I get started? HELP!
