2 books

One of the things i did not like about it was the two workbooks. I liked problem solving book but found the instruction book to be so tedious. At times they had the answers on the pages. Maybe...

Pilot

I piloted Ready Math last year and hated it. There was not enough independent work for the students. I am hoping we do not move to this series next year. Would love to see what others think.

I have done the postcard exchange for years with my students. You can try to sign up here on the Post Office board but states fill up fast. You may have to start your own to make sure you get in....

We have many substitutes looking for jobs in NY but if you are certified ELL you should apply here. The rules have changed and districts are in need of ELL teachers now.

Read- Alouds for the new school year

What are you read aloud plans for the new year? I am looking for newer books to read to my 4th graders. I have read a lot of books this summer but not sure they would make for a good read-aloud. I...

Crenshaw warning

I love Crenshaw and read it as a read aloud to my 4th graders. Just be careful because in one of the first few chapters the main character talks about keeping the tooth fairy or maybe the Easter...

Two Opinions

It was nice reading two opinions. I just finished the book and I have to say the first chapter contradicts the program that it has become. (Bulletin Boards, t-shirts and cheers.) After logging the...

I Ready

I think it depends on the level the kids are out. I have 4 kids that will never make their stretch score. I feel bad putting them on it for 50 minutes a week knowing they will still be behind.

Love Lucy

I have to say that the Units of Study are very structured and not like it was even 10 years ago. My school is a Title 1 school and we are using it. It is a lot of work to plan for your first year but...

So sad

Look up Calm Classroom and see if you can find a few mindful minutes to use it with the class. I have been using it 2x a day and it does help. I also think the other benefit is that you can remind...

I wish

The idea of having students do school chores is wonderful. The problem is students at our school are not allowed to put up or take down bulletin boards, clean things and even organize books. "WE...

Ugh!

That is tough. One idea is to physically cut the task in pieces. They have to hand it in piece by piece. The movement may help them slow down.

Also if you give the student the answer key and...

Iroquois

I think because we are knee deep in our Native American Unit I am going to have them turn and talk at the very end to answer the question,

How would geography impact the lives of the Iroquois?

In NY to be Highly Effective the kids pretty much have to run the show and you are just there to blend into the woodwork. I get that we want lessons not to be teacher directed but planning a formal...

wow!

I would be terminated even with tenure if I did that. Or not allowed to teach and be reassigned. So now the kids who call out are the healthiest?
We do walk laps as a school but we use it as an...

Above grade level readers

If you feel overwhelmed with 3 groups allow your above grade level readers to run their guided reading group as a book club. You can check in with them 1 or 2 times a week but they can focus on...
