I am new to this grade level list, as I am moving from teaching 4th and 5th grade the past seven years to teaching kindergarten this next year. Our school has just adopted Investigations as our math curriculum and has made a commitment to teaching at least two units this next year. I was one of the first in my school to pilot the program and have used it for the past two years at both the 4th and 5th grade levels. I feel pretty comfortable with Investigations at those grade levels, although I never got through all the material (there are 11 units at 4th grade!)
I am excited by the kindergarten units and appreciate the routines that are built into the first unit. Any hints or suggestions for using Investigations at this level will be appreciated.
I should add that this will be an inclusive kindergarten , with children of a variety of disabilities being a part of the mix. Thank you in advance for any advice.
