Union helps

Are you in a union? If so, check to see if they have seminars for soon-to-be-retirees. They'll answer lots of questions, and let you know what your benefits are for your state (we can't draw both...

Box

I keep the boards in a box at the front of the room, and they help themselves...they are responsible for bringing in their own markers (part of the school supplies list which, thankfully, our school...

Write a Book!

If you pull this off, you should write a "how-to" book! I'm frugal, but this goes "above and beyond". Just wondering, is this a school-wide thing? Do you have a PTO that can help? Are you allowed...

FOSS...for now

We have FOSS Matter and Energy, Water, and Structures of Life. Our school system is beginning to look more closely at CC, so that might change. We have to ramp up the time we spend teaching it, so...

Donor's Choose, Too!

Donors Choose funded mine, and rather quickly! Several other teachers in my building also got funded. We got an Adesso NuScan, which we use every day.

Tables!

I've finally done it: made the switch from desks to tables in my third grade classroom. The kids have lockers outside the room, plus a personal "bin" (type used for guided reading room/library sets)...

File Box

I have a hanging file folder box (plastic, with a lid) that I keep on the counter. They go on sale around tax time at Staples and Office Max. They're nice because you can stack and store them!

Depends...

We just got it this year. The K-2 folks don't like it at all, but the 3-5 crowd really like it (I teach third). Getting the training to use it makes a ton of difference. Unfortunately, we were...

Nope!

Regular schedule, lunch at the same time. But we were able to flip Math to the afternoon, so we got the basics (ELA and Math) in without losing anything. We have specialists late enough in the...

Union

If you have a union lawyer, I'm assuming you belong to a union (not all teachers in all school systems do). Your union president should know what the rules are about observations and videotaping. As...

Ttqa

My kids are taught to TTQA (Turn the Question Around). I find it keeps the kids focused so that they can dig in and support the answer with facts from the passage.

Please Stay Clear!

From whom are you "receiving complaints"? You are out; no one should be discussing anything classroom-related with you. I certainly hope it's not parents! If it's other teachers, I'm amazed that...
