    Honestly, they need uninterrupted time to TEACH. And time to process what they learn about their students from their lessons. I ended up giving my 2nd grade teachers a list to choose from: running records, 1-1 intensive work, small strategy groups, 3 Act lessons, number sense activities, lesson planning. Teachers liked it in theory, but in reality it was just another thing added to their to-do list. So I chose for them and started doing running records with their students to give teachers actionable data. I’m sorting kids into strategy groups and compiling games and activities from Graham Fletcher that teachers can use to further student understanding of the ways numbers work together. I would like to do more, but our teachers, like many others, are hanging by a thread. Quiet support allowing for classroom consistency may be best at this point.
