report it

I would report it in person to my admin asap, and I would bring all those watching the video to the office with me. I would then follow through with an email describing what had happened and that I...

Do you know about how many students you will need to fit into your classroom? That information will go a long way in determining how to set up your...

Common Core

To me, the third grade Common Core Standards are almost exactly the same as the standards we used before we adopted Common Core. We taught Common Core Standards a few years, and supposedly adopted...

Our current admin never steps foot in the cafeteria. However, I did have one principal who made it a point to come to the cafeteria every chance he got. He would always sit by a student who was...

This is our second year with SBG, and so far I'm not a fan at all. Our procedures are pretty confusing, so I'll try to keep it brief;)

We give two types of grades: formative (1-4), these grades...

Other than bedbugs, that sounds like my school:( I have been miserable this year, because of how disgusting our building is. There is absolutely no excuse for unsanitary schools, but no one seems to...

so sorry

I am so, so sorry to hear this.

I agree with sending home a letter and letting parents discuss it with their children at home. I'd probably check with my admin first, but I imagine that's...

Math Facts

A.) How do you determine multiplication facts proficiency? - Our district's rule of thumb is that students should be able to solve a multiplication problem within 3 seconds. Whenever I give a timed...

I organize my in folders by subject. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could have folders in the Purchases section of the site and organize our purchases there?!

This has really become a problem for me, because I'm not able to do what I know is best for my students. I feel like I have two options. I can either teach the way I know is right and slow down...

I had no idea that some state tests weren't time. Ours is timed, and now that we have constructed response questions, it caused HUGE problems for us. I had MANY students not finish the test, because...

morning work

I use Evan Moore's Daily Reading Comprehension. I shrink the pages and print two days on a page and place it in students' morning work folder a month at a time. I love the types of passages and...

Wow, I cannot believe that a principal would think that was a good idea. If I was D, I'd be heartbroken and would have a hard time ever returning to school. Does that not break confidentiality laws...

Last year I was blasted on Facebook. The next day, I called the parent and said, "It's been brought to my attention that you have concerns over Susie. I hate to think that there are any issues that...

That was my first thought! Why does she feel the need to broadcast her complaints all over Facebook and the media, rather than having a respectful conversation with something who actually works at...

We test for five consecutive days. On testing days, we test from about 8:00-11:00, so I don't think my students could handle any more than on test a day.

If I only used my school's adopted instructional materials, I'd be twiddling my thumbs all day. The few things we have are almost useless.

If I were new to the district, I wouldn't cause too much...

We have no textbooks or consumable workbooks, so I do have to use more worksheets than I'd like. In reading, I use one a week for a quiz, and I'll occasionally use a graphic organizer. In writing,...
