Hello! There may be another thread on this ~ so my apologies in advance if there is! Anyways! I am a grade one teacher and we are about to switch to our volume 2 practice workbook for reading/phonics. For volume 1 ~ I allowed the kids to tear out their own pages. This was rather difficult at first ~ as when I said "Ok, please turn to page 75" some were on page 57, some were staring into space, and some had out their math workbook (on page 57!!) and were beginning to tear it out! I realize it helps teach responsibility and LISTENING SKILLS to the kids when we have them find their correct workbook and get to the correct page ~ but I do find it a little bit of a waste of time. I have a classroom of 28 1st graders ~ and it's very time consuming to walk around the classroom and make sure that each kid is on the correct page. At the end of the book are "End of Story Selection Tests." They're also very difficult for the kids to locate. Does anyone think it would be hindering their readiness for grade two if I pre-pulled their worksheets for them? Let me know! Thanks so much!
