I'm pretty sure

the parents know about it--it is very hard to hide. I had a nephew doing the same thing to the extreme. He always pulled out his eyebrows completely. They dealt with a psychologist about it, and...

Preamble sign language

I teach them the preamble in sign language. They love it, and the sign language helps us understand the meaning of the difficult words and memorize it. They love to go home and show their parents....

I'm tired, this is funny.

It has been a hectic week with my 35 students--21 of which are boys <!--giggle-->. I love boys, but these are a handful! Anyway, on the way home I go through Wendy's drive through to get food for...

Sounds good

It sounds like the Read 180 plan our local junior high uses. Not sure, though. But I think it sounds like a great idea.

Pen Pals

Pen Pals wanted

I teach in Utah and have 35 fourth graders. If anyone is unlucky enough to have approximately that many students <!--giggle--> I would love to be pen pals. I prefer someone from a different area or...

3 students

per side works out OK. They are pretty long tables. In 4th grade I still use the 3rd grade size chairs. If I used the bigger chairs, it would be a really tight fit. If I had a smaller class I...

is my policy. 2 math worksheets per week to review what we've learned the previous week, reading, math facts, spelling if they need it. I like the idea of letting them use 10 minutes of class time...

3D was great!

The whole movie was great! I paid for 3d because the other showings were sold out, and I was happy I did. Some of my family is seeing it in regular today. Maybe we will compare notes! Loved it!

Large Classes

All our 4th grade classes last year had 33 or 34 students--we will probably have at least that many next year. My class size has gone from 24 - 34 in my 7 years of teaching. Crazy! I like the...
