3/4 split in ontario

Help!! We had reorganization and was changed from a 3 to a 3/4. This is only my 2nd year teaching grade 3 and have never taught grade 4. Where do I start? How do I do this? For language I'd like to have 1 lesson with possibly different expectations for each group. Any ideas? Please, any help would be great. Thanks!

I was also just switched from a 3/4 to grade 1! I'm feeling exactly like you right now! I found teaching language was easy. I used the same lessons for reading and had them working on similar writing projects, just different topics. I based my writing around social studies. For math, I taught the grade 3 lesson while the grade 4s were doing independent or group exploration, then switched. In my case, my 4s were all working at a lower level than many of my 3s. No need to sweat it, it will all work out just fine!

What did your reading look like? Did you do shared reading together? In our school we have a set called Now I get it! (Mondo) I was thinking of using this. For writing I'm thinking of going back to the basics with teaching the various writing forms (narrative, how to...) My planning time teacher will teach my 3's social studies and science. The fours are getting french. I guess I'm just anxious.

I had the same set up, where my 4s were integrated with the other 4 class for sci/ss, and they were also pulled for French. It worked wonderfully! While the 4s were in French I was doing extra language and math practice with the 3s. That will also be a good time to focus on EQAO review and strategies later in the year.

Read alouds and shared reading were done as a whole group and I was also focusing on the basics...genres and reading strategies. I was also starting the First 20 Days from Guiding Readers and Writers, which the kids were responding to really well.

In my case, my 3s were all very independent workers, and all working at a very high level, while my 4s were all at a very low level. Most of my 3s were able to produce better work than my 4s.

I'm pretty sure I'll have to teach my fours sci/ses. I don't even know my french schedule!?!?!?! They hadn't finished it on Friday. The principal said to go with my original planning time periods for now until they factor in my french. Stressful!!!
I did look at the first 20 days and I was thinking about doing the readers notebook, but not yet. I figure I'll do genres as I go along with shared reading and strategies after I've talked about the different writing forms. EQAO I'll do together unless I can do it during their french time.
As for the students as workers, my threes are very LOW. Not really independent workers yet. Very needy. The fours I'm getting I've taught either in grade 1 or 2. Yes, I've been changed grades quite a few times.
We'll see how Monday goes.
