Get a number for grandparents

I would call dad or mom and describe the behavior you are seeing. Ask them for a contact you could reach during the day in case his behavior becomes disruptive again.

The mute all button is made...

Watching their screens

We can see their screens when they are logged into their school devices. I have blocked YouTube a few times for individual students. Freaks them out when it suddenly stops working.

Sorry this has happened to you

I keep reading of situations like this. Do the parents even realize they are the reason their child’s teacher has to quarantine? Do these parents realize they are the reason their child’s whole class...

Never voted in person

I think that is a legitimate concern.

When I started voting, I requested an absentee ballot since I was away at college. The practice then, so long ago, was to keep a voter on absentee status...

I mute all on a regular basis. I tell them they need to be muted unless talking since it can create too much feedback if they are all unmuted. I have one that doesn’t seem to realize he constantly...

In person

The time you have them in person is so valuable and definitely should not be wasted on independent tasks like that. If they can do it at home, it is probably not something to waste your/ their time...

College apartment

My daughter is in an apartment this year - it is definitely not luxury!

I have it for my daughter’s phone. Started using it when she was in middle school and she was staying after school for activities or hanging out with friends more. It was really good for when she...

Live meetings

We were encouraged to do at least one zoom meeting each week. We had to coordinate schedules with all teachers in the school so sibling meetings did not overlap. I did two each week. Never saw more...

It seems like parents try this one on you every year. You would think they would learn.

I expect my daughter to advocate for herself. I have made it a point to make sure she understands that it is...

Out of my comfort zone

My school planned one. These kind of events are totally outside of my comfort zone as well. However, I knew a lot of my students would be looking for me. I even was stressed about how to decorate the...

Boundaries and Consequences

Kids need consistent and firm boundaries- especially those with difficult home lives and or trauma. It has become an epidemic of sorts where student behavior gets worse due to well meaning (maybe)...

Did you give her a consequence? I almost always add my own consequences on top of whatever admin may give - especially if I feel admin let a kid off too easy.

I have used many activities from FCRR and do like them.

I guess my frustration lies with the required curriculum materials that are used for intervention in my district. It seems like students do...

Reading intervention - ideas needed

What are the best reading intervention materials you have used for phonemic awareness and phonics?
I am not happy with what my district uses and need ideas.

Although you only have them for 30 minutes, I think you should give them a consequence. Along with ignoring their lack of participation, you should definitely separate them so they are no where near...

At one school I have worked at we had a discussion about read alouds at different grade levels so teachers could avoid using the same books and students would be exposed to a larger variety of books...

This! The problem is not what they want to call the kid, it is in the mother's reaction. I have changed name tags before when I have found out that the child prefers a nickname or whatever. It's...

Response to question about pressing charges

I think it would depend on who the student was. From how the student was described, I probably would not since they are already dealing with a lot. I would, however, insist on having a talk with the...

Be gone

Take a few last minute sick days. Most likely there won’t be a sub. Let admin deal with it.
