This school year 2017-18 we will be doing three - 4th/5th Multiage classrooms at Pratt.  The team will consist of Ms. Kruse, Ms. Pantsari and Ms. Sievert.  We are so excited to be working together and working in multiage classrooms.  I have put together some links to articles to help explain what multiage classes are as well as to provide research about multiage classrooms.  i have also put links to the state standards so that you can compare what the kids learn at each grade level so you can see the similarities and differences between the two grades.
