another thing

Our regular white boards weren't erasing dry erase pen marks. I noticed that the "low odor" didn't erase, but the regular stinky markers were darker and erased easier.

Tests

I think that tests should be to verify that students learned something that makes growth towards a standard. You could continue with Reader's Workshop, but you can give tests on the skills using...

Star reading

This is a test that only tests vocabulary in isolation, so it isn't testing ALL reading skills. It is a good indicator of a problem. Reading 20 minutes per night is a minimum that all sixth graders...

agreed

I can see that you have really thought this out. Your writing was clear and complete. My concern is that after the 2nd sentence most kids will tune it out because it is too long. The reality is...

Welcome to our world

As you discovered, sixth graders can be challenging. That is why people gasp when you tell them your grade level. LOL

It seems that you have learned that "telling" them is not effective. For...

I wonder how that would work for math?

conventions

I read your post and had the same reaction as Queenbee. Teach conventions through reading. There is a really good book called "Mechanically Inclined." The idea of the book is that you take real...

thank you

Thank you for your great ideas. I'm curious about his short story, and will buy that book. I already have Crispin and Charlotte. I'm so glad to get the recommendation about "Something Upstairs". ...

out of time

Just remember that EVERYTHING takes so much longer at the beginning of the year. Eventually, your students will zip through the routines and get more comfortable with the work.

Avi

The author, Avi, is coming to our school. What is your favorite Avi book? I'm thinking about including one of his books as a read aloud this year.

new to me this year

I found a book that relates to my ancient history class. It is called, "Maroo of the Winter Cave". It is a short, action/adventure book that is set in prehistoric times.

I often started with...

not your problem

I would say that it is not your concern, but hers. It won't take long for the kids to adapt to her or her to figure out that this grade level is not for her. I can't imagine how difficult it would...

financing

I'm in WA and I used the conditional loan. It was great. My school actually paid back the state when we got the bonus and we got the remainder. Check with your district. My district also paid for...

meaningful homework

In my opinion, meaningful homework is completing something that is related to the learning of the day and preferable something that can only be done at home. To go along with this idea, I am going...

spelling pretest

In my classroom, the spelling pretest has become an important part of word study and student reflection. No one gets out of taking the the final test because honestly, sometimes you can just guess...

Facebook

It is way to high of a chance to lose a job over Facebook. I do have it, but I'm extremely selective of my friends and would never befriend a student.

wow

I'll never complain about my job again. It sounds like you are a detention officer, not a teacher. I honestly think they need to simply guard the exits to the building and if someone leaves your...

team teaching

I don't have a team teacher, but I can explain. The special education teacher is there because your school practices a "push in" model of instruction. That means that rather than having special ed...

book club

I used to have a small book club after school. We read City of Ember one year. After we finished we watched the movie and then created a diorama. I blew up the map in the book to a large size and...

I'm not sure I remember exactly how this went, but one of my favorite team building activities involved some creative thinking on behalf of the team.

All the kids are on one side of the room. ...

House of the Scorpion

Sorry, I haven't read this one, but it is on my "must read" list. Just my humble opinion, but from my recollection it is a bit long for a class read. I love a long book for personal reading, but...

Definately a "NOT". One of my colleagues purchased those and tossed them right in the trash. Nothing was even remotely helpful. Your best bet is to look at the practice tests and the rubrics. The...

Kmob, you are really amazing with all the extra work you are doing on behalf of this student.

You are so lucky that she was literate in her home language. Many ELLs that arrive in our school...

etymology

I suggest that you teach a word a day to the students. Pull the word apart and explain the prefix root and suffix of each word. Once you do a certain prefix or suffix a few times, it will become...
