I love papermate flair felt tip markers. They last a long time and have many different colors.

Take the child aside

I have several students like this in my sixth grade classroom this year. One of my students came to school smelling of urine on a daily basis. It made it very difficult to even instruct him because...

I checked out the site, looks good, I've heard of it before. But it also looks like the price has gone up. A years' subscription in $25 now. Although there is a way to use it for free, but without as...

I don't

but my daughters school, which is Montessori, still teaches and requires it. She's learning cursive in preschool. I like and hope they don't take it away. It's a dying art.

Last month I took a 2 week math pd and each day we had hw. Each morning we were given 20 minutes for "homework tables". Where basically students talk in groups and work through homework issues...

I've taught 7th and 8th

for the past 2 years.

1. I'm not familiar with WBT, but whatever you use be fair, firm, and consistent.

2. I didn't use rewards or incentives. I didn't want my students always expecting prizes...

I was thinking that I would maybe add a news article illustrating a current event. Perhaps some current student work showing what students are learning in class. Then maybe a scientist spotlight. A...

I had a really rough last year too and while I haven't blocked it completely out of my mind I remember just enough good things and just enough of the bad stuff to get me excited about this school...

just and idea

Give them frequent pop quizzes on specific items you told them to put in the notebook. Sometimes allow the the quizzes to be open notebook. When they complain they don't know it, tell them "It should...

You and the baby come first

I taught during both of my pregnancies all the way to the end. And I had terrible morning sickness each time. I would have to run out the classroom to throw up. I threw up every morning before...

Don't grade everything

My first two years I made the mistake of trying to grade everything and it was just way too much work. I ended up sending a lot of stuff to the "circular file". Now that I am only teaching science I...

Show it off!!

Thanks for asking this! I'm going to pull my diplomas out of my box and hang them in my classroom. I think it would be a great encouragement for the students and it also gives them another way to...

I like it. Too young for my students but it looks like a great way to integrate science into the morning routine.

We are in the process

Our school district did talk to us at the end of this past school year. Only the reading and math teachers have to start teaching the common core this year. They are supposed to slowly integrate the...

Thinking more about it more

Last year our school also showed assessment scores, but by grade, in the hallway. Teachers did not have to put it up in the hallway. Our school only had two fourth grade teachers, I taught math and...

I think it is ridiculous that they want you to display this data in your class. These schools are getting a bit silly about this data "stuff". Some of it really just makes no sense. The display is...
