Assured Experiences and Common Vocabulary

Kylene Reed
April 25, 2021

Strategies that I teach my sixth graders first begin being taught in KINDERGARTEN!! When you have alignment across grade levels with common vocabulary and assured experiences, students are able to build on that knowledge and pass it on! 

Each year, my sixth graders partner up and help the first-grade students with their end-of-the-year research piece. This time, we changed it up a bit and my kids helped them with their "All About The Author" page. Literally, Mrs. Rider and I did NOTHING!! We just stood back, watched, and enjoyed the 6th graders model, ask productive questions, and guide the first graders. It was so much fun!
