Inside the Classroom: Teaching Kindergarten and First Grade
Kindergarten and first grade have many similarities as far as classroom management, organization, and materials: children are engaged in writing, reading, literature, social studies, and science. Although each grade is unique, many of the concepts and teaching strategies appropriate to one can easily be applied to the other. Inside the Classroom is a collection of articles by Bobbi Fisher, many of which first appeared in Teaching Pre K/8. Fisher, who has taught both kindergarten and first grade, is often asked by teachers where they can find her articles. Inside the Classroom is the answer. Here elementary teachers will learn how to set up a classroom environmental conductive to learning, how to create a positive classroom community, how to use reading and writing throughout the curriculum, how to assist emergent and initial readers, answers to spelling questions, and how to conduct a "visitors day".
