Teaching Grades Pre-K to 5
The elementary school years in the US cover a range of grade levels, typically from kindergarten through fifth grade, but often ranging from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade or higher, depending on the individual school system. The lesson plans, worksheets, and teaching tips covered in this section of Bright Hub Education focus on teaching younger students, from Pre-K through Grade 5, though some lesson plans may be suitable for slightly higher grade levels as well.
While lesson plans are divided by the appropriate level as much as possible, you will also find a section entitled Grade School Activities, where we cover a broad range of activities and crafts that cross many grades, depending on the unit you are teaching and the individual abilities of your students. The vast majority of lesson plans and activities have been written and vetted by teachers and education professionals, and have been tried and tested in classrooms throughout the United States.
