Booster Groups

Discussion in 'Primary' started by CheerieNic, Feb 27, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I'm returning to work and shall be working with some booster groups for literacy and numeracy. I've been told about 5 areas to work on with the groups of children, but have no idea where to start with them. I'm tempted to take the first day spending time with each child individually so I can seewhat they can/can't do and find out a bit about them as I don't know the children...
    Do you have any suggestions or advice? I'll only be working with them once or twice a week, so would it be worthwhile doing our own mini project/topic? Or linking it with what they are doing in class?
    Thanks :eek:)

  3. I would say focus on key skills. The class teacher will know what their gaps are so this should save you time assessing them.
