I got a letter from my 1st graders class. It said. That his current 1st grade teacher would be looping with her class next year for 2nd grade. Looping is when a teacher teaches the same students for the next grade level. So as the students move up the the next grade they have the same teacher. I thought this was interesting. My home room teacher did this when I was in high-school. The note explained that studies have shown looping to be beneficial to students to transition back to work be more comfortable. I liked this idea. My son has social anxiety. So starting a new school year with a new teacher would be so stressful for him. He is comfortable with his current teacher. I asked him if he would like to have his current teacher next year and he said yes. Has anyone heard or done this before?
