Combined Class?

Hello there!
Does anyone on here have experience teaching 1st/2nd combo class? I've taught both grades, but never together! Any advice would be very helpful! Tia!

MY suggestion: study both grades standards and find a way of merging them so that both grades are covered as much as possible.

It was easier for me in Science and Social studies. But Math required a balancing act and sometimes, two separate classes because I had three 1st grade ability students! But generally what worked for me was starting the math from grade 2 and building into grade 3 levels.

With ELA I basically began from grade 3...especially because the former teacher had used the grade 2 text so I knew I couldn't use it in whole class activities. But during guided reading, I took any new or struggling second graders aside and used the grade 2 text.

I hope this helps and pray your year works out well!

I have a combo class this year. I teach 2nd grade ELA curriculum, small group phonics, guided reading based on instructional level and we walk to math. My 1st graders go to a class right across the hall. I keep my 2nd graders for math. Hope this helps.
