Departmentalizing

Clip to ScrapBook #8

Our school departmentalizes at that age and it's OK. We find that the three teachers need to communicate with each other constantly to stay on top of which kids might be having problems - is it in just one class or across the board? We meet with parents as a group or alone based on where the child is struggling. We don't have too many issues with managing materials, but you'll need to give them at least a month to adjust to carrying their belongings and needing to return to their previous classroom to retrieve things left behind. A pencil case is a must. We use seat sacks to store stuff during class. We also try to let each other know when we have a test planned so that the kids don't have two tests in one day. I think that the parents perceive us as a team, which really helps.
