Daily scheduled group lessons allow the teacher to have “planning time”. One teacher will prepare a lesson or activity, and teach it to all the students from all the classes. This allows the students to interact with each other outside of their typical day to day routine. It is also a time that the students can get out of the classroom and enjoy some sunshine at the park! Planning time gives the other teachers time to focus on preparing and organizing lessons for the upcoming days and weeks that best fit the needs of the students.
