Diane Bolarinho, paraprofessional in Ms. King’s 1st grade classroom, says she give the students 4 strategies to choose a leader for their studio (small group) work:

  • Pick a journal
  • To the right
  • To the left
  • Take a vote

The first is teacher directed, the second is teacher directed with student choice, and the third is democratic. That’s enough for Grade 1! Thanks, Diane!
