Gifts

I'm a little late on this thread, but I take all of the books Scholastic has for $1 from various fliers, and I put a picture of the cover in a Word document. I let the kids pick one book. I used to...

Bins

I purchased the bins from Really Good Stuff 6 years ago, and they're as good as new. I absolutely love them, and they were worth the money.

I've never heard of teachers eating with the kids. That would be horrible. We have lunchroom and playground supervisors. I think there are about 6 of them.

We take a break at 1:30, and school gets out at 3:20. I usually have kids asking to go around 2:30 or 2:45. I think it's just when their lunch settles. ;)

Handwriting

I think the tough thing with handwriting is that we teach it in isolation, and then when kids have to apply it to their actual writing, they just go back to their old habits. It's also tough, because...

Me, too!

I've thought about this, as well. However, I'm about 1/2 done with my master's in reading, so I feel like I should stick with it. :(

I know how you feel. :( My class is VERY chatty. It's so frustrating. I have 25 students, and 8 of them do not stop talking, and the other 17 just look at me like, "Make them stop."
