Introduce yourself: Merrillee from Alberta
I just signed up for the course “The concepts holding your students back” and I’m pretty interested in becoming a better Grade 5 teacher. It is such an important year because it is the last year before students enter middle school in our town and there are some big concepts to be sure they have going into that new situation. I’m looking forward to stretching my own understanding and then helping my students do so as well. I’m also trying out spiralling this year, so it is a lot of new for me all at once! But I think the two should go hand in hand, so I’m pretty excited. I teach French Immersion, so if anyone else does as well, I’d be interested to see how you adapt the ideas and materials to your teaching environment.
