I had to do the cutting-and-pasting because it was the only way I could see of making sure I included everything!

multiage math

I teach multiage: last year grade 4/5 and this year 4/5/6. I love it!

Anyone else teach in a non-religious school?

I get the impression from this board that virtually all private schools are religious ones. Mine isn't - I'm curious to know how many other PT members are out there in non-religious private schools!
