HOARSE voice

Hi guys, Happy WInter Break to you all! I have a growing problem. I use my voice a lot and have always made read-alouds extra fun by using a wide variety of cartoon-like voices for the characters...

SHort Xmas Videos or Cartoons

I've signed up to be a story-reading elf for the children who can't afford to buy tickets for the winter festival at our school. The problem is that my voice is not going to cooperate. I need to...

I, too, am a NBC teacher

SO much work, so much joy! Congratulations to all of you who also passed. The last time I was here, I was stressing about taking the test. All the best to all of you!

thanks for your opinions

I'm still on the fence about this. The thing is, MOST of them "got" it. When they Pair Share / Retell, using our Anchor Chart, they mention the theme. I've noticed that this class is quick to pick...

opinion: re author's purpose

My first graders and I read a safe-pigs version of "The Three Little Pigs," followed by the full-on version, in which the wolf eats the first two pigs and the pig ultimately eats the wolf. After we...

Breaks--awesome!

I'm been doing this, too! AM SO GLAD THAT SOMEONE ELSE IS DOING THE SAME!!! I'l drive them SO HARD for 40 minutes, and then give 4 minutes to just "chill," walk around the room, talk to a friend,...

I feel like a monster

My class of first graders really DO try hard and they are learning by leaps and bounds. ALthough I keep telling them that I'm pushing them so hard b/c of how smart they are, I worry that I'm too...

Math

i love this question! DO you offer them many opportunities (like on rekenreks, or playing simple games) to subitize? We' ve adopted Mind Institute's program called ST MAth and I love it because it...

i truly sympathize

It absolutely sucks to be in a position in which you are neither respected nor trusted. My advice is to do what you know is right (when no one is looking) and pretend when they are. It puts you in...

Incentives!

I printed out a lot of "Behavior Bucks." If students arrive on time, have homework, and their Homework Folder, they start the day with 3 dollars. (An assistant passes these out.) If they are late,...

first graders ROCK!

I'm a career firstie but, as a result of budget cuts and ill-timed decisions, I wound up in third two years ago, and second last year. But NOW, I'm back home, in FIRST! It's so fun to watch them...

Just Right Books

I always seem to have a group of books that slip between the cracks! I label these as "Just Right Books" with the question, "Can YOU find one?" I give a mini-lesson about using the 5 finger...

Cgi!

I am going to try and incorporate CGI, as well. Rather than fully implement it (as I haven't had the training), I want to implement it for the CCSS about adding and subtracting within 20 (fluently...

Has anyone incorporated C.T. Fosnot's "Contexts for Learning Math" into Common Core Math Instruction? If so, how is that working? Which unit did you start the year with?

CCSS Balanced Math Organization

I'm making all these math games for the "workshop" part of my Math Block. This is my first year doing CCSS. I'm thinking of "biting the bullet" and organizing the games by Kid-friendly "I Can"...

Great Idea!

I'm stealing this idea and using it throughout the year, after Read-Alouds. We'll log our opinion of the author and/or illustrator, back it up with evidence from the text, and leave it in the...
