    Hi there. Planning is sometimes the barrier.  We are asked to submit year plans. I wonder if we sometimes get more caught up in sticking to the plan then responding to the needs of kids. I know I did. And I’d say another part if this is data conversations with both colleagues and kids. What might they already know? Where might I gain more time because of this, or where might I need to go slow to go fast later? As mentioned in other posts, spiraling really helps. Are there other grade six math teachers in your school? I’ll bet the “spirallers” in this forum would love to share ideas that you can then make your own.
