My smallest class of students was an afternoon young-fives class my first year of teaching. There were only five children in the class. What a perfect number of students! We could do so many fun and interesting explorations. In direct contrast, the last year I taught, I had a full-day kindergarten class with 29 children in it. To be sure, that’s a good number of five- and six-year-olds packed into a classroom. They were a quirky group of little ones, and I had a ball teaching them. But I do wish I could have given them more individual attention.
And that leads me to Wednesday’s Question of the Day:
What grade do you teach, and how many children are in your classroom?
I’m eager to hear everyone’s answers! If you comment on today’s blog, you will automatically be entered into our “Thank You, Teachers!” drawing. There will be five prize winners! (The winners will be announced next Monday.) You can enter every day this week by posting a comment on the daily blog.
All the best!
