| | 5th and 6th graders....HELP
I'm having trouble teaching my 5th and 6th graders english. I teach my 5th and 6th graders all in 1 class. The problem i'm having is that the english levels between the 5th and 6th graders is a big difference. My 6th graders are really good at english and the book i'm using with them is too easy for them. It's so easy to them that they can use some of the sentences in the book and add more to it. For example if one of the key expressions is "I rode my bike." they can write it as "I rode my bike because I was bored."
As for my 5th graders, the book is a little hard. It is hard for them in a way that they don't understand the key expressions presented in the book. Nor can they make long sentences like the 6th graders.
So what should I do?...I don't know what to teach them. Or how to alter it
One person told me to have different worksheets for them one harder and one easier. Its a good idea but the problem is I don't want them to do worksheets all the time becase its an after school class.
