I'm not new to teaching, but this will be the first year I am teaching my own classroom (not prep coverage or small groups) and is also the first time I will be starting at the beginning of the year. That being said, I'm unsure of where to start with my sight word/word wall practice. Are there specific words to focus on for each grade? Do I review grade 1 words? Do I re-teach words? Do I teach both grades the same words? I was thinking of reviewing grade 1 sight words the first week through flash card games and seeing which words the majority were familiar with and going from there. Also, I don't have a mandated spelling program and am not sure what I should use... does anyone have a good resource for a combined grade? Thanks in advance!
