behavior management

For a while at least, try an old method like a clip chart or similar. I still use one and it works well for me. Have the children clip up or down on the chart according to behavior. Those who clip...

Constitution Week

I enjoy teaching during Constitution week because I pull out all kinds of replicas that I've collected during trips to Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg, Mt. Vernon, etc. to use when teaching. The...

Fountas and Pinnell phonics

Who uses it? Do you like it? Do you do a Daily 5 type program? We were "ordered" to use this phonics program this year, but are struggling to implement it into our existing program. Upon...

Interested!

I've never done this before, either. This is my last year before retiring. I'd love to do some fun things like this to make this last one memorable. I have a class of 19 in Texas.

Big kids and Easter baskets

We just set a family rule with my boys, who were the oldest of the cousins, that Easter baskets ended when they became teenagers. This year will be my nephew's last--he'll turn 13 in May. I do...

Can I get an AMEN!

I moved down to 2nd from 3rd last year. Hated it. Still do, but the move was out of my control...another story for another time. This year's bunch is a LOT more immature than last year's. I use...

I use interactive notebooks.

I taught 3rd grade for many years, and used interactive notebooks there with success. Last year when I moved to 2nd I found that these teachers had been using them, too, but not as extensively. My...

Timed tests

I do take grades on timed math fact drills. I actually take two grades and average them, then record the average. The first grade is for the problems completed before the timer went off. Then I...

Sometimes it's just that way

I am an old gray mare, in my 35th year of teaching. My assistant principal/math interventionist/LONG time coworker covered my math class last week while I had a doctor's appt. After I returned she...

Vistaprint address labels

I've used small address labels from Vistaprint as customized stickers for years. I just reordered some I made a few years ago that have a hippo on them and I put "Hip-Hippo-Hurray! You made an A!"...

Journeys

While this is my first year in 2nd grade after many years in 3rd, I've used the Texas Journeys for a couple of years. Not a great fan. The stories aren't bad, but we are an Accelerated Reading...

penpals

I teach in a small, rural, Title I school in East Texas. I would be interested in being penpals, too. We average 18-21 students per class, mostly low-income, about 10-15% Hispanic/ESL children that...

3rd grade career

I, too, have spent most of my teaching career in 3rd grade--the last 26 out of 32 years to be exact. I've always felt I found my niche here--you have low level kids who come in actually working on...

Cscope

We also will have to continue to use Cscope. We will use the scope and sequence mostly. Our district wants to be able to track progress by using assessment results with DMAC. Don't know how this...

A different award

Somewhere in the dark corners of my file cabinet, I seem to recall filing a similar idea to the sundae one, but this used tacos instead. Each fact group was a component of a taco--meat, lettuce,...

high reading level

I seem to have at least one child every year that can read that high, so it's no longer a scary thing. Just because a child CAN read at that level, don't expect them to necessarily WANT to. I had...

pencil problem

I really haven't had pencil problems in the last couple of years. Can't really say why, though. Every morning my students are supposed to sharpen 2 pencils (though 3 would probably be better). ...

death of a parent

I've had to deal with this issue a number of times. As for the children in your class, unless they personally knew this mom, it seems to be pretty much "out of sight, out of mind". They are still...

Book suggestions

I have to agree with Ms. KKD about Divergent--great book. Can't wait for May 1 for the next one.

If you like that sort of teen/young adult fantasy genre, I recommend Jame's Patterson's Witch and...

STAAR review

We are using the Gail Fuller book, too. We also have been using Motivation Reading this year. The stories are harder, which we are hoping is more in line with STAAR.

For our last few weeks we...
