Started hearing things last year

Our admins began discussing this topic last year. They didn't use the word "mirroring" but framed it as a discussion on autonomy. One of the conclusions we were supposed to draw was that we should...

Gift for baby nephew

My nephew will have his first birthday soon. He is the third child, and they have accumulated way more "stuff" (toys etc.) than they can possibly use. We are close, though, and I would still like to...

Can't see that

I just read Wonder in summer school with kids entering sixth grade, and I think they were the perfect age for it. I couldn't see reading it with third graders. Even if they comprehended the basic...

Movies related to Wonder?

We've been reading the book Wonder with my sixth grade summer school class. It looks like we are going to finish a couple of days early, so I've been trying to come up with a fun culminating activity...

I've asked them not to

I've already just told them I don't want my eyes dilated. They look at you funny, but then they get over it. I don't think it's really necessary to have it done every year, at least not at my age.

I have it

I do have their credit card and have gotten rewards a few times, even though I only purchase skirts and accessories there (tops are so cute but don't fit me well). I would say it has been worth it...

I remember seeing that site

It's a fun site, but how it would actually help with classroom management is beyond me. It rewards noise - it's way more fun to make the balls bounce by being noisy than to just let them sit at the...

Joining a gym?

My family has never been much into fitness, but in my twenties I've started jogging and sometimes cycling a few times a week to stay in shape. Sometimes I get bored, though, and I've been thinking...

Any benefits to LinkedIn?

I've gotten a few invitations to LinkedIn. I'm not job hunting. Are there any other benefits to having LinkedIn for teachers?

Deciding whether or not to bother with it.

Not sure

I see the point about grading according to the standard, but I also think that PE is a unique situation. Think about the kind of effort an unathletic kid would have to put in in order to...

4th Grade word work?

I'm teaching 5th grade summer school this year for struggling fourth-graders entering fifth grade. I normally teach middle school, so I don't have a lot of accumulated resources for this age group.
