skills taught....

For me it comes down to the skills taught in each grade. I've taught both, and I really like both for different reasons.

But, ask yourself, would you rather work on very beginning, emergent reading skills? (really getting into sounds and rimes and rules and teaching lots of guided reading for decoding) Or, would you rather polish those skills by working more on fluency and comprehension? Both are fun and challenging!
