bread

I don't eat much bread, but when I do, I eat Trader Joe's cinnamon raisin or white GF bread.

A tip with GF breads is to always toast it. It crumbles more easily than other breads, and it holds...

Parent reading issue?

I have dealt with a parent in the past who couldn't read. I wonder if the parent's reading skills are the issue with choosing the wrong bag. It might be overkill, but since you're labeling anyway,...

I'm reading between the lines- conservative Christian?

If so- The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S.Lewis, Christian religious allegory)

I'd ask them first, but there is a Left Behind for kids series....

We are required to be at school. It's weird because we stay isolated in our classrooms and rarely see anyone else.

We're phasing in kids. On Monday, everyone will be F2F in an AM/PM hybrid...

And... open-mouthed chewing

It's really not that hard to get on a schedule. I hate the eating during Online class, too. At least some of my students have gotten savvy enough to turn off their cameras.<!--eyebrow-->

Will retire out of state

We're years away, but DH and I have already decided to move out of state when someday comes.

It's not just housing. It's the ridiculous cost of living and crazy restrictions. I don't want the...

Don't double plan

I don't see how you can possibly do separate plans for in-person and virtual and still keep your sanity.

Keep your platforms and sites simple. Stick to only a few.

You may have to tweak your...

iPads

On my students' iPads, refresh is the issue.

You can also sign in to GC on your device as the student. I've done that to make how-to videos.

Just select your avatar in the upper right-hand...

Basic Prodigy is free, and kids like it.

Apps "don't work" for her child

I agree that this computer/screen time scenario isn't the best, but it's what I've got right now!

So, no, you don't get to find or use paper activities that you can do with/for your kid in lieu of...

Agree- take breaks Online

My fifth graders couldn't handle that ridiculous schedule. We are supposed to provide 4 hours of learning for grades 4-8. It can be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous. I've built in regular breaks...

big student privacy concerns

I feel lucky that our district isn't suggesting this scenario.

These days, many students are hyper-sensitive to correction, and some parents over-react to correction as if the teacher went out of...

Empowering Writers

It's been recommended here, before. I got a couple of free units in the Spring. I wish i could afford it.

one idea

We got here by overemphasizing constructivist pedagogy, even in mathematics. Students shouldn't have to "memorize."

Well, if you have no background knowledge with which to think, how are you...

I think about "behind"

as, well, we're all in this mess.

tasks. i've been spending almost three weeks reviewing place value with fifth graders....

Make sure to tell the students-

NOT to close the Meet. They need to open another tab or app switch depending on what they're using.

Problem solving approach

DreamBox activities are more "use your skill to figure out the puzzle."

I feel like kids who are new to the program might need to know that. There is a way that you can do a lesson as a teacher. I...

Using Teams

One critical piece is the identities that are set at the admin level.

Early on, our students were able to re-start old meetings without us. Check with your IT department that students are always...

Not a fan

I use other materials. Luckily, last year I had combo, so that was my excuse.

This year, not so much. I could get into the pedagogical weeks, but I'll just say that I will have to use some of the...

Hard without personal connection

I'm not sure what to offer without knowing the child, but I think children can often handle more honesty than adults give them credit for.

Keep up the "chat." Introduce a crafty project. Most...

gloves?

We have the same rule about not putting it back in the library right away. We have to put it in a baggie for a week.

The only thing I can think of is that students can only look at the books with...
