Not sure if you have a TV in class,

but one thing I used to do (when I had a TV) was select a few short movie clips that the students had not seen. I would play a clip, but without volume. The students would have to watch and make...

Need some ideas

My former student teacher just got her first job today! It is a first grade classroom and she has no ideas of themes she'd like or even resources. I teach upper elementary, so I am a bit out of my...

Thanks so much!

I am going to just chill out and enjoy the rest of the summer with them! I will not bother so much with teaching them to write their names since that is part of the pre-k curriculum. Instead, I will...

You all are wonderful. Thanks so much...

Thanks! Oh, and one MORE last question! :)

Yes, they do know the basic shapes, circle, square, rectangle, triangle, and octagon (because of stop signs!).

Bucket fillers

I teach 4th, soon to be 5th, and use the book, Have You Filled A Bucket Today? I have never read the other ones, so I cannot give you advice on those.
