Technology is the biggest change
The most interesting challenge with teaching fourth-graders today is definitely meeting them where they are. I teach an inclusion classroom so they come with a variety needs, and making this a safe place for them where they feel loved and wanted is important. I started teaching 11 years ago and the biggest difference from when I started to now is definitely the technology. The kids are so excited about it. They are so excited to use it every day. Today we used Safari Live. We got to take a virtual field trip to South Africa and see the habitat and all the animals, so it’s easy to incorporate this because they are excited about it. That’s definitely the biggest change.
