Hi everyone - I have a question regarding mixed scheduling & the PYP programme.  Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


I have proposed a fixed schedule for grades PS-2 and flex for 3-5. To support PYP, I looked at the upcoming UOI schedule for next year & did a "best guess" as to which ones I could provide the most/best support (based on my single year's experience) & have set aside time in the schedule for "UOI support" - 2 period blocks at a time.  It's not the best solution, of course, but I am also in the process of creating a secondary school (6-12) library at the same time & I can only provide so much support for the upcoming year.  We have a small space that can only accommodate one class at a time, so I included Whole School checkout first thing in the morning & was planning on encouraging grades 3-5 to 'pencil in' a regular time for their students to stop in.  Since we are also a pretty small school right now, I was also planning on monitoring students who come & who don't so that we can make sure they don't just 'blow us off', so to speak.  Since I am required to give grades, I am not sure how this whole proposal is going to actually turn out.

Our school is looking at adding IB. Are there some books I could order now, while I have the money, that lend themselves well to IB? It's looking like our library budget will be drastically cut next year.

Hello, I am interested in learning new tricks and sharing ideas to better serve my IB students.
