You Mean YOUNG!

It's all good! I'm 56 (but don't feel it, just look it!) and have mostly taught intermediate grades my career. I started as a first grade teacher though and found myself back with 6 year olds after...

Dollar Tree

I buy holiday suckers from either Sams (sometimes Ross). Don't forget Dollar Tree for pencils/erasers and other assorted goodies if you have any of those stores in your area! Happy...

Worn right they look awesome but sometimes I have a problem getting them to look right or stay in place! I'm betting you look better in a scarf than you think but comfort is important!

Color Coding

I, too, color coded my tables with bins that matched. That worked really well. I had groups of 4 per table (very small classes) at the most. Have a good year!<!--girl1-->

It seems less is more in first grade because they can be easily distracted by too much. I keep it simple but fun! Good luck!<!--graycat-->

Count your blessings! My room is tiny but in an older building so we have peeling paint, linoleum floor, wobby desks, etc. Takes a lot to make it comfortable for everyone. Your room looks...

No way

We have Breakfast in the Classroom for everyone and that is disaster enough for clean up. I've not met a teacher who likes it. Some teachers let the kids keep their breakfast items for snacks later...

This will be my second year using GoMath. It was relatively a piece of cake to use. I agree the homework page can be challenging to some parents. Good luck!

Ditto Loving First

I was moved to first grade last year after 30 years of teaching intermediate grades. I had the BEST year of my career. Absolutely loved my first graders. What I enjoyed the most was NO STRESS!...

Student Learning Objectives You haven't been out of teaching that long. It's what you've always done but on paper for administrators and for all the wrong reasons.

It's Part of the Day

Love Third Grade

I, too, went from 5th to 3rd this year. It was a change I will admit BUT I love it more than I thought I would. The expectations are higher but that is a plus. Reading is a struggle for some but...

I try to use a kid friendly reading log. I have the parents sign it only ONCE a week, not every day. I also have an option under minutes for 'no opportunity' because in the real world, schedules...
