I wanted to try and get this out before I have to leave for school. I am a charter school educational partner in a two adult, 22 student 1/2 grade split classroom. We teach to the Multiple Intelligences and do a lot of whole class instruction. Our IOWA scores just came back and our 1st graders didn't do well at all! Looking back, I think it's possible because the 2nd graders blurted out the answers all year, that the 1st graders just haven't paid attention. They also are never quiet! HELP!
