happy girl

That was my first thought! Why does she feel the need to broadcast her complaints all over Facebook and the media, rather than having a respectful conversation with something who actually works at...

independent work

I agree there has to be a balance. We're not allowed to take a summative assessment on anything other than independent work.

We test for five consecutive days. On testing days, we test from about 8:00-11:00, so I don't think my students could handle any more than on test a day.

If I only used my school's adopted instructional materials, I'd be twiddling my thumbs all day. The few things we have are almost useless.

If I were new to the district, I wouldn't cause too much...

We only have a nurse one day a week (at best). All of the responsibilities end of falling upon the classroom teachers.

I think it is insane that there isn't a full time nurse on staff at every...

Their personality and teaching style would be way more important to me than age. Some of my best teacher friends ever were about 20 years older than me.

Could you use an author study? I typically focus on Patricia Polacco and Eve Bunting's books for this standard. I know the books aren't technically in a series, but Polacco's books typically feature...

Student surveys are a part of my evaluation in GA. I think it's pretty crazy.

We have no textbooks or consumable workbooks, so I do have to use more worksheets than I'd like. In reading, I use one a week for a quiz, and I'll occasionally use a graphic organizer. In writing,...

Here's my flow of the year. I kind of wish I could teach geometry after fractions, but gotta love system mandates:) Other than that, I like this progression. I like how everything builds and connects...

For us, there is a huge gap between second and third grade. I have many students drop from straight A students to making lower grades. This is in no way a criticism of second grade teachers, because...

lit circles

I haven't seen an article, but I remember reading something about it in his updated book this summer. In the book, he didn't say the roles hinder the talk, but the forms and sheets that go with...

If you contact TpT directly, they'll help you out. I had trouble opening zipped files until they helped me.

I'm going to try KidBlog this year. I plan to use it as an incentive for students, and they'll write their reading responses on the blog. I honestly haven't played around with it yet though.

Sale Prices

As a customer and a seller that makes me so upset! I know that big cooperations do it, but it's still wrong in my eyes. I hope that maybe it's a mistake in some way. Maybe you could send the seller a...

We have a very strict district grading policy, so I don't have much wiggle room.

We give and record formative assessments on all practice work, and these grades cannot be counted toward a...

Surely this is a joke! Maybe a play on prescribed curriculum? I absolutely cannot image anyone actually doing this. I googled the program, and their YouTube video...

It took me about three months to learn to do that, and that's working hours everyday. I'd say you're ahead of the curve!

school supplies

School supplies are definitely a hot topic. When I first started teaching, we were given $50 for supplies, sent home a supply list, and asked for a $20 donation (per family).

Now, we're not given...

It bothers me so much when I hear anyone criticize teachers, but it especially upsets me to hear teachers talking negatively about teachers. We work way too hard and put up with way too much to tear...

Studies Weekly

I use the GA version, and the reading is difficult for my students at the beginning of the year. However, the content is exactly what we're supposed to be teaching. I think it's a great way to...

I think that's how it worked for us too. The only scores they looked at for my student gain portion of my summative score was reading, and I don't teach reading either. I'm not sure if it was a state...

I hope it's okay if I reply to this thread, because I try not to mention anything TpT wise here:)

I'm the one who made the bundle/grammar units, so if you have any questions let me know. I did...
