Welcome to our Classroom
 and Ms. Swanson's Menagerie! 

A menagerie is a "varied, diverse mixture." 

Our Kindergarten/First Grade Multi-age classroom
is filled with students sharing their various

interests, and strengths!

"A multiage classroom is not simply a group of
different aged students placed in the same classroom.
Instead it is a well organized and
thoroughly thought out program designed to
take advantage of the natural diversity created."

"A successful multiage class is formed by placing together a
balance of numbers of students of different age groups with a
range of achievement levels. The teacher plans instruction and assessment expecting and celebrating diversity within the class."
