Keep it

I don't use the top of my desk as a desk. It has student mailboxes on top, so it's sort of like a table with enough room for 2 students to work. It faces the wall, so I can still use the drawers. I...

Find something in common

I often find that these kids feel like they can't relate to you. Try to find something in common (sports, movies, books, puns, etc.). Then try to spark a short conversation with them...

Yikes!

That is a rough start. I can only say that if you keep your expectations high, they will eventually rise to meet them as long as there are clear, direct consequences for being disruptive. I read...

Correct

Singvogel is exactly right. You can use the basic features which was all I really needed, and it remains free. All the bells and whistles cost money!

Math Success Story

Letter Writing

Instead of sharing everyone's ideas aloud, you could have them write you a letter. This way you learn more about every student and you can share a few each day. Teaching With a Mountain View...

Edm

I went through the program and tried to align it to Common Core standards. I found that many of the standards are found on the add-in pages like 320A or 120B for example. Some teachers were skipping...

Interactive notebook

I spent about $50 on some interactive notebooks by Lovin' Lit. I loved them, but now I am only teaching math this year. So, I don't know if it was worth it for 1 year of use. If I was still...

Great ideas!

Thank you so much. I found stickers on Amazon!
It's not a new idea by any means, but we want to eliminate taking days and days to prepare for quizzes. So we are going to break each unit into a few...
