Subject: Multigrade teaching
I teach in a multigrade classroom with students in 4th, 5th , and 6th

grades. Is anyone else doing this, and if so, how do you structure

your day so you can teach multiple math lessons, along with all the

other subjects each day?

This year I am responsible for only the 4th and 5th grade math, but

next year I'll be doing all three grades of math. It is very hard to

do a good job covering the math this year with two groups. How are

others doing this?

It takes about an hour per grade level each day to do planning. Is

this the amount of time others are spending?

Thanks for your input.
