Do you use many worksheets in your room? I have reading, math and writings workshops in my room. We use a district wide spelling book and use science kits. for social studies I use the districts text and supplement with my own things. I very rarely use worksheets but I'm getting some negative feedback form other teachers. "When they get to fourth grade they can't keep up" or "they have so many missing assignments!" Just yesterday I was told "we have to get them ready for the work they do in the higher grades. Any feedback?
