I have taught forever (seems like) --really over 30 years. We have tried writing workshop but my kiddos do not want to write anything. All they can think to do is ask me how to spell. I have gone...

There is also a great booklet that we are allowed to copy at Carl's Corner. We use this and place it in a folder each year.

We use journals beginning the first day of school. I know that in our Kindergarten classes they begin with one color word. They make a small sentence: I see a blue ball. Say the sentence together....

I like this idea--my younger sister told me that at some of their church classes awards were given out. Each child received a "folder" containing their awards. They then took the folder home and...

You could actually go through the drive-through service (if offered) and complete a withdrawal slip. You will probably have to present ID but it should not be too hard. Just tell them you need to...

All I can say is AMEN, grace slick!!!

This year I have done Daily 5 but on Fridays we do centers after our weekly tests. The students look forward to this and it has seemed to satisfy their need for "centers". I also have 3-4 students...

spelling test

I count off 1 point for using capital letters and reversals UNLESS the reversal is another letter--then I count it wrong. I found that if I let it go, they keep doing it that way. Usually I am more...

I spent Friday afternoon after school moving my students out of groups. Yes, it looks like old times again but I, too cannot stand the constant chatter. We will see if it helps.
