This is my 2nd year in K. I have taught preschool and 1st in the past. This year my group seems to be really low. There are a handful of kids who are really struggling with letters and sounds. I have tried many things, and have all the extra helpers that come to my room work with these kids on letters and sounds. I feel frustrated because I've tried a number of things with these kids and they just are not getting it. I've used sand to trace letters, dry erase boards, and many other hands-on approach tactics. I also feel like I am putting all my time and effort on these really low kids and not helping the others as much as I should. I know it's our job to meet all the needs of the kids, but I'm just feeling like its not enough!!! Any thoughts would be appreciated!
