Welcome Bag

I put together a small welcome bag in a zip lock baggie. I put the attached poem and list in with small trinkets. The kids love it.

No Themes

I have been teaching 37 years and have never had a theme. Neither has any of the teachers I teach with. My room is very cozy and colorful.

Over the years (36) I have done gift opening

in different ways. Sometimes, if the child asks me to please open it right away, I do that. But sometimes, when the gifts come in as kids are arriving from their buses, it may be too hectic to open...

Holiday Break is for family, not homework...

Right before we dismiss for the holidays, I tell my students that I would be remiss if I didn't give them a big batch of homework to do over their break. Of course they all groan, but then I tell...

At my Office Max

the man was so nice that when I asked where the rulers were he helped my fill my quota and then dropped in a few more too. I was able to get my 12 folders and my husband and grandson got 6 each, so I...

I am sure the namecallers are feeling guilty.

I think you are doing the right thing because you are doing what you enjoy. Sometimes I feel like I need to apologize for being all set up and ready to go when the rest of the teachers come in to set...

At my Office Max...

they let teachers get 12 folders for a penny each. My husband and grandson went too and each of them got me 6, so that gave me 24 for my class. Of course it isn't like Staples last year where you...

Our district doesn't do this at all.

My district supplies the things we need and I am sure would disapprove of us asking parents to send in supplies for the class to share. We get tissues from the nurse whenever we need them; paper and...

Does anyone remember...

how much Staples had composition books for last year? :confused: Was it 25 cents? I keep hoping that they will beat the 50 cents ones at Target because I want two per student for Reading and...

My schedule is similar to yours...

and so I don't have the students complete something across the board. I usually place work that needs correction on desks to be done as morning work. Also, students have a weekly poetry assignment,...

Here's how I do things:

1. When a student is absent, I put their name on their test and place it on the side of my large desk. I need to keep things visible or I forget about them.
2. I have a pocket folder for each child...

I do not give gifts to the parent helpers at

Christmas. I give a planter at the end of the year to my homeroom parents. I have never given a holiday gift and I have been teaching many many years.

We have benchmark tests 4 times a year,
