Course Guiding Question:

Course Guiding Questions

What are the best grouping strategies for improving reading and writing fluency, and how do I design stations and activities to best support student growth?

Great course for primary literacy stations!

I am currently working on renewing my teaching certification with plans to teach 1st or 2nd grade next year. This course gave me a good overview of reading, spelling, and writing instruction as well as some great ideas to implement in literacy stations. I will definitely use what I learned in my classroom next year!
