I am grade chair this year and one of my fellow K teachers from last year will be with me again. However, a teacher from another school is coming in to fill our third K position. She is very much into weekly themes. I'm not. I have so much to teach that I feel weekly themes will require me too much time looking for theme ideas. I'd much rather use my time planning and preparing to teach what my kids need to learn. Maybe I'm this way because I'm a newer teacher. I think themes are cute but I'm more concerned with making sure my students can meet the standards to go on to first grade. I would love opinions either way about this.
