Three different suggestions

I have three possible options for you. One is more about addressing behavior. I read and attended a workshop by Jim Fay. If you are not familiar with him you could try his book "Discipline with Love...

I totally agree

I am one of those people who enjoys having a theme when I start the beginning of the year. This year the colors happen to be navy blue and green. I collect a variety of things I already own and use...

I use scrabble squares cut out of paper. We brainstormed 4 things the students would enjoy as rewards. The are spelled out in tiles and laminated. When things go well, a student's name is drawn...

computer ideas

There are a couple of math websites that my school uses. They provide for a large range of abilities. The first is IXL and the second is Moby Math. I also have my class working on Reflex for fact...

Mr. Peabody's Apples

This is one of my favorites to use the first week of school. It is a book for children written by Madonna. It is about jumping to a wrong conclusion and starting a rumor. The message is that even...

I love this site too! It can be made to fit any schedule and divide into as many or as few sections as you want on a daily basis. It can be pulled up on a computer or iPad and used in daily form to...

I still do both for grades

We have been doing our grade book online for years now, but I still keep a paper one too. It is faster for me to write them in the book and then enter the week's grades on Friday. I take a...

A few ideas

Hi! First of all, welcome back to teaching. I love fourth grade. I can't really help with the tickets etc. because I don't do anything like that with my class.

A few books that I like to read...

Me Too!

I end up choosing the kids over pacing requirements as well. It is not a popular call, but how can kids be expected to want to learn anything new if they have been lost on the last 3 things that...

Class Calendar is an option

Some years my class makes a class calendar. We print out template pages for the calendar page and a page with a frame for a picture to match each month. The students are divided up in groups and...

My Dream Job :)

I would love to teach math for most of the day, however in our school I would have to teach it to 7th and 8th graders and that does not make it quite as appealing to me :)

We did have an hour...

I have a body that has a lot of experience in this area. There is definitely a difference between a Men's 2XL and a Women's 3XL. For me, it is the difference between whether I can wear it or have...

Congratulations on the new baby. What an en exciting time for you! I guess I am wondering why members of the staff would be "reporting to you" about how awful things are. That does not seem very...

My pleasure

Sometimes shifting the attention away from themselves is the trickiest thing they have to work on all year. Have a great Thanksgiving break. Hurry up and relax :)

For several days

you might want to try having them use a yellow highlighter. Before they actually start the problem have them highlight the numbers in the top row that are smaller than the numbers in the bottom row....

For something different

from the usual around the world idea, we started to have the 4th graders do something for the students in each of the younger grades. It took some long talks over diet soda year one, but we plan to...

It's not you

It sounds to me like you have gone out of your way to be friendly. I would say that the problem is not yours, it is theirs. I don't think you should give 2 people the power to make you feel bad or...
