    Is anyone teaching 1st grade summer school? I will be teaching Summer School for 4 weeks - June 8 to July 2... M-Th mornings only. It's been 4 years since I taught 1st grade. I have some ideas but they might be "old". What are your suggestions for these struggling students? :thanks:

    When I taught first grade summer school I went to the first grade teachers and asked them what in general did they need to work on. They gave me comprehension skills to work on and a little bit of math. I feel like it was a successful 3 weeks. The decisions of who stayed in first or move on to 2nd had all ready been determined so I really felt no pressure to pass or fail a child.

    I am teaching 1st grade summer school. Ours is strictly literacy based. We do read alouds, shared reading, guided reading/literacy stations, phonics, independent reading and writer's workshop.

    I'm teaching 1st grade summer school too, but I will either be teaching math, reading, or writing. Our summer school is 3 days a week for 6 weeks. :)

    I'm teaching first grade summer school, too. I normally teach 3rd grade so it's going to be different for me. Any suggestions for read alouds?
