Teaching Whole school (19 children)

Discussion in 'Primary' started by pcallaghan, Jun 1, 2011.

  1. HELP!!! I WILL HAVE A P1-7 CLASS (19 children in total) next year!!!
    Has anyone got ANY advice with regards to teaching 19 children ranging from primary 1 - 7. Unfortunately our numbers dropped due to several families moving from the local area and we are going from a two teacher school to one! ME! I have experience of teaching 3/4 way composite classes (Primary 4-7) But I have never had to teach ALL stages ALL the time! I really need advice/ help/ support because this is a daunting task and I am really struggling with the logistics of how this can be done... With regards to daily, weekly and termly planning. As it stands I will have 10 maths groups - 9 spelling groups and 8 reading groups and 2 indiviudals, unfortunately the children cannot be grouped together as they are ALL pretty much working at different levels/stages. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP![​IMG]
     
  2. I can't really offer advice as I've not had to teach all levels before but just wanted to say good luck!! A few years back there was a poster called Shetland kat who taught whole school - try searching for her - you might get some ideas.
     
  3. I'm afraid I can't offer any advice (I'm secondary), but wanted to say good luck! It sounds like a massive challenge. I went to a small primary school and loved the mixed-age, all-in-together classroom; I've only recently realised what a nightmare it must have been for the teacher!
     
  4. I am going to be in the same position as yourself next term and I have spent my whole summer planning! What I am wondering is when am I going to have the time to do it once I actually start teaching? :)
