So today I did a bit of a preassessment on my kiddos for a Me on the Map unit, just looking to see how many of them knew, more or less, their physical place in the world. I was somewhat surprised to discover the majority of them did not know their physical street address. (I also had one kiddo who did not know what planet he was on, but that's neither here nor there). I did my part and decided to give that some attention in coming lessons, but my last school, where I taught first grade, addresses and phone numbers were a huge part of kindergarten curriculum and then slightly reviewed in first. I currently teach 2nd grade. No criticism, just chalking it up to different schools and different ways, but it did get me curious to know when this gets hit at your school, or when your personal philosophy would have it.
