Every Day Counts

Our district uses the Every Day Counts calendar math program and I really, really like it. It is something that would require funding to buy (not sure how much it would cost for one teacher set) but...

First thing in the morning

It depends on how your schedule is structured, but I have had a lot of success meeting with my lowest students first thing in the morning. Our morning routine is really independent, so after I have...

You might be able to do a lot with songs and pictures too! The book Comprehension Connections by Tanny McGregor talks a lot about introducing comprehension strategies through more approachable texts...

20 a day

I am lucky to have a chunk of 20 minutes between recess and specials this year. I had this same chunk of time a couple years ago and it was perfect for read aloud! This year I am going to also use...

Hanging?

Could you hang something from the ceiling to cover them? Maybe like a clothes line with student art or something hanging strategically over the circuit boxes?

Words Their Way

Our school also switched to Words Their Way and it has been really smooth to implement, well received by parents, and most importantly-effective!

The main "textbook" for Words Their Way explains...

Yes!

I have used pocket charts for a variety of things (word walls, CAFE menu board, student jobs, phonics dance, daily schedule, lesson objectives, etc.) and that is what I love about them most! ...

Here is another

Attached is what my grade level gives students the first day. We talk through each item that morning and I feel like it really sets a nice tone- especially the eraser and rubber band. Several...

Phonics Dance and Read Aloud

Every day when the kids return from recess they start immediately on the Phonics Dance chants (short,catchy chants about different phonics chunks). It is a student job to get everyone's attention and...

Pocket Chart

I am also using a file folder size pocket chart to keep incomplete work, but instead of buying a 32 slot one, I bought a few 14 pocket ones. My thinking was that they would be located around the...

Math Workshop

From Reading to Math is a great one for applying what you know about effectively teaching reading to math.

Awakened by Angela Watson was also a perfect summer read for clearing out any negative...

High Interest, Low Level Book Suggestions

I am a third grade teacher, but am tutoring a little guy who just finished first grade. He is reading at a mid-first grade level and has already declared that he "hates reading."

I am not very...

Their responsibility

I dread the pencil situation too! What has worked best for me is to totally make this their responsibility. At the beginning of the year I give each student a ziplock to put their pencils in. They...

Fccr

The FCCR website has a lot of great activities to help with these skills. You may want to start with some of the K-1 activities and then move into 2-3 activities depending on the student's level. ...

Agreed!

I agree with the above posts- don't overload yourself going for a special ed certification if it isn't where you see yourself working. However, you did mention one of your possible hopes would be...

Ask 3 Before Me

It may result in more student conversation which could create a whole separate issue, but I know teachers who have the "Ask 3 before me" rule. You could also consider giving each student an assigned...

A couple favorites...

The Geronimo Stilton series is wonderful (although the levels are inconsistent across the series... I think it ranges from N-P). I think the Cabin Creek Mysteries series is also around an O. It is...

Songs

"Firework" by Katy Perry and "The Grinch" (perfect this time of year) are loaded with examples of similes and metaphors. Thinking about what she means when she says "You're a firework" really helped...

We also do an angle hunt with the letters in our name. They use an index card corner to have an example of a right angle and then check the letters on their name tag for each angle. Somehow it...

Practice in hallway

One of my favorite things about teaching angles is how easily it can be reinforced during that "dead" time in the hallway while waiting for specials or a bathroom break.

Early on we do a lot of...

Thanks!

Capitals

Another trick since they usually seem to know the capitals for B and D is that if you "add a bump to a b you get a capital B." Adding a bump on top of a lowercase d looks wrong to them (most of the...
