I start the day by sharing my "RAD" upon which I build our classroom. That stands for "Respect, Academics, Discipline" and I share what each one of those looks like with real-world examples. I really...

Umm... renters pay taxes too.

As a renter, it irks me that people think we don't pay taxes. We DIRECTLY pay the taxes on the homes we live in via our rent payment each month. And where I rent I actually pay MORE than I would if I...

Book reports are fun-

Have you seen the dodecahedron book reports that are on here (do a search to find- or I can send later). I also like General book reports on a book of their choosing.

One thing I love during testing time is...

Having each student sign up to be the "resident expert" for our class. They get to sign up on the whiteboard for a time to present to the class any lesson/project/idea. I've had the most amazing...
