It is tough for me as well

I just want to prod them along and have to fight over-"helping" them myself. We just have to remember that some kids just have a slower processing speed--some kids struggle with latency issues. Who...

Both yes.

But we always lived in rural areas or small towns and there is no public transportation--even now. I have never lived in a place where there was organized public transportation. Plus we were farm...

Give yourself time and space

I feel that way about criticism too. I know it is inevitable at some point in any career but still hurts when it occurs.

Liken it to having your feet knocked out from under you-- The whack that...

Amended IEP

Hello~~ Is this teacher his case manager?

Did his school have to amend the IEPs to account for the distance learning? Did they change anything? Did they contact you by phone or email to...

I just came on to recommend

that same site. Klarabelle, great minds think alike.

When you do to the word lists, look for the little PPT icon. The ones WITH sound will have a tiny yellow speaker in the corner. The ones...

Display settings

I know nothing about Macs, but even on a PC, there are different displays and different settings within Display.

Essentially, your computer recognizes the SB as a second screen. You need to...

We allow them

We have teachers, students, and parents all wearing them. They are popular around town as well. We are small and rural so we appreciate anyone trying to cover with anything.

It is about the money, Honey!! :cool: Not that you didn't know that. They will claim the equity thing, the IEP minutes are Federal law, "they need a routine" and all sorts of excuses. Bottom line is...

Yes, sorry I didn't clarify~ Yes, it is to be worn with a mask as well.

Our district offered the face shields in addition to masks.

We got this one in our district.

I really like it. All of the SpEd teachers and Speech therapists received them.

So many things have changed since then...

Even the names of things. I graduated college a bit before you. I don't remember anything like that either. Then my career took a turn as well and I ended up doing social work for 10 years before...

Not ANGRY mobs, necessarily

But crowds and sports and concerts. I can see how easy it could be.

I've surprised myself in some moments when I realize how easily swayed I've been.

I have a motley collection

as I have tried many to get the best fit and feel.

I decided I like the ones with the vertical seam in the center best. They don't snug up to my mouth and nose as much as others. I like the...

All along, I have been the one reassuring others that this will all work out. I have been telling people that "I am cautiously optimistic about it." I have said that I am concerned but not afraid. ...

Life skills can be tough but you

can do this. Try to keep stress managable. Language still needs to be SIMPLE. Super simple. If your students are low enough to need this in MS, some of them maybe at the Pre-1st level in academics....

About anything will work

if it is older kids, you can hot glue a pompom on the end of a dry erase marker. The bigger pompoms work better on the regular markers and the smaller ones on the thin markers.

For little kids,...

If the main change

was the workbook and not the stories themselves, just pick and choose between the two editions for yourself. The student copy may be different but you could still use the questions for discussion or...

I plan to leave it all packed up at the

moment. My classroom has hard wood floors. To get them refinished and waxed properly, I had to take everything out and pack it up. My plan is to just get out only what I will need as I need it. ...

Truthfully, I can see both...

No ideas to add

I worry that it is a lose-lose situation for all of us--staff and students--GenEd and SpEd--alike.
