3)

Dear Melissa,
I have worked with teachers in Massachusetts who have gone through
your same struggle. There is a lot of material for third and fourth
grade and I believe if you try to do it all for all students you will
have a very hard time staying sane. What these teachers did was to
meet with colleagues (most of them were team teaching or had
colleagues in other multi-age classrooms) and went through the books
to see what topics were covered at both grades and what was specific
to third or to fourth grade. In these two grades there is indeed a
lot of overlap and many games are repeated but modified a bit.
My understanding is that teachers have found that they could modify
both grade level curricula to do some days of whole group lessons,
some days of activity choices (providing options from both grade
levels which address a particular topic), and some days where the
grade level children (or ability levels) were separated to investigate
different activities.

Does anyone else out there have specific advice for Melissa?
Best,
Katy
