Middle School BB

Hello! I also teach middle school (came from primary as well) and I've found the kids really still love have a "decorated" classroom. Like previous posters said, I also use fabric on my boards. ...

Bb

I've always used my bulletin boards for student work. I only have two small boards (each is 4x4). I put black fabric (that I bought at Walmart) and cheetah border (which matches my theme). Every 3...

Try it!

Love, love, love being a middle school teacher! I taught elementary (PreK-3rd) for nearly 5 years before making the switch last year and I was pretty hesitant to do so, but I love it! I definitely...

flocabulary

Search for "flocabulary" on YouTube. They have their own website as well, but the videos are free on YouTube so I find them there. The kids really enjoy them.

Short Stories

I absolutely second what a previous poster stated. . . short stories! The kids love them and you can teach MANY skills for each story.

Some short stories I (and my students) have loved in the...

It's hard!

Sometimes you need to come at it from the opposite side. Find one or two students who ARE following directions and doing what they are supposed to do and reward them. Make it worthwhile too. Give...

All Year Subs

We are about to start our 3rd week of school and we currently have a day-to-day sub in one of our classrooms (middle school). She is expected to do lesson plans and even showed up for our Open House...

Divergent

Divergent is a great choice! The movie is in production now which may get some students excited about reading the book. You could tie it in with many short stories that have that dystopian element...

Do it!

I taught elementary for 5 years (Pre-K through 3rd) and made the switch to middle school ELA last year. I love, love, love it! I was hesitant about this age group but I know I am a true middle...

Super Cute!

Love the theme! You obviously spent a lot of time (and money!) on your room and I know your students and their parents will appreciate it!

Sleep

I'm the same, I NEED my sleep. I turn in anywhere between 10-11 depending on my day! I should be in bed right now because tomorrow is a long day with Open House at 7 PM.

K-8 Center

I teach at a K-8 Center (we actually also have Pre-K) and I love it. We are actually at 2 different campuses (long story). Pre-K through 6th is at one and 7/8 is at another. We have all our...

Of course!

This lesson was generated from a presentation I was lucky enough to see from a woman named Anna Jordan, so she really gets the credit! I just took her ideas and ran with it! I actually went to a...

Mask

I don't actually have written directions for the students for the mask assignment. It's more of a class discussion. When we talk about what different colors can symbolize, and when students start...

Easiest way to start is by getting garnet colored fabric for all your bulletin boards and then using gold border to trim it all out. If you have any Seminole memorabilia, bring that into the...

Jeff Anderson's Mechanically Inclined is AWESOME! It's a grammar book that isn't preachy and is written by a REAL teacher. I was lucky enough to meet him and hear him speak this summer at a writing...

Mask Extension

Also, I like to start off with the mask because you can use it later when doing character analysis. For example, when we read Tell Tale Heart they will create a mask for the narrator of the poem. ...

Middle School

Here is my syllabus, I'm attaching it as a PDF because of the font, but I'll also include it as a word doc. You'll have to play around with the font so the tables don't shift.
