Every. Single. Time.
I try to explain that K is it's own beast. But if you haven't done it you have no idea.
I've experienced one exception to this rule. We adopted Bridges for our math curriculum this year and the PD was amazing! We met k-2 and our presenter differentiated for everyone and knew exactly what she was talking about in regards to each grade level. I've seriously never been so satisfied with curriculum training as I was for those two days.


Funny story. I'm on the math committee for my school. We were "discussing" our new report card and how it needed to look because the ridiculous goal was a school wide, standardized report card (k-6 - mmmmhmmmm...). I tried and tried to explain that it didn't work for us. I finally showed the "lead" teacher on the group our old report card and our standards and her jaw almost dropped. She said something like "This is totally different! What we are talking about would never work for K! You guys just do what you need to do." It was pretty funny (and a relief!).
