I have chosen Grade 1 math as my focus for the semester. I am going to teach summer school and I will have one kindergartner and three first graders. I don’t know much about my students yet; however I do know the focus of the summer session will be math and reading. I am hoping to create something that I can put into practice with my summer school students.
