New teacher teaching 4/5 combo class.

Aug 25, 2014 12:17pm

This is my first year teaching and I originally was given a 4th grade class and once they did balancing I was then transferred to another school in our district and given a 4/5 combo class. HELP!! How do I teach two grades in the same time that I used for one grade? I don't want to short change any of the students, but I need to know if I can combine certain subjects without it being a repeat for the 5th graders or being too advanced for the 4th graders?

      You can give both grades the same spelling words and possibly the same social studies/science curriculum. You need to look at the course of studies and common core standards to determine which ones are the same. Good luck! Been there!
