They're supposed to

Student teachers often completely take over the teaching when the regular teacher is gone in our state, Iowa. This is expected if they are far enough along in their time with the class. However, a...

maybe......

I had a terrible "foot year" in 04-05. It all started with a broken little toe in July and progressed through several other problems until a podiatrist finally diagnosed a stress fracture in my foot...

Plasti-Tak

Plasti-Tak is a common brand and easily found in supply catalogs as well as at discount stores. It comes in white (pretty worthless), blue (somewhat more useful), and yellow. I never buy anything but...

Long way to office

My room is waaaaay far away from our principal's office, and she is often out of her office for meetings, staffings, observations, etc. She is very accessable when in her office, but e-mail makes...

Troll chant

This is not original, but it is fun for 2nd's and could probably pass as "dance" unless you have very strict rules to follow in your selections. In order to keep the beat steady, I always lead. It...

Music teacher here

Yes, I have a few behavior problems, but they are mainly dealt with in K and 1st by the student spending a few minutes in the "time-out" chair. If it is a "group" problem, we might stop our class...

Another muisc teacher here.

I am another one of "those" who are easily distracted by music or even by other people talking when I am trying to concentrate on something. We rarely do individual written work in music class, but...

to Linda 257

Feel free to use the song lyrics, Linda! I've also heard the Days of the Week song and also find that a good "borrowing" of the TV tune. My 1st and 2nd graders have been having fun reading, singing,...

It's YOUR class, but.....

First of all, I feel for you in having to teach in the classroom. Been there - done that! Since you are actually the "teacher," not an associate or student teacher, it was your call on class control,...

Have it

I purchased it a couple years ago for use in kinder music classes. All I really needed was the main Jazzles CD. The song sheets, coloring sheets, etc. all came off that for printing in pdf form when...

Ten Out of Bed

Your theme calls to my mind the book TEN OUT OF BED, by Penny Dale. It's a take-off on the song "Ten in a Bed," but it isn't a song. I just Googled it to get the author and found several listings, so...

Wash them?

Mine can just be washed with soap and water. They look sort of like old-fashioned black board erasers, but the part that does the actual cleaning is some sort of fuzzy synthetic material. I squirt...

Thanks, Reb!

Thanks for speaking up for those of us out there who are part of the obviously-much-hated "specials" group! If the classroom teachers in my building are as negative about me and our other specials as...

It depends

If you are replacing a retiring teacher or one who used school-purchased materials, you might find a selection of supplies for setting up your room. Otherwise, there's a good chance you'll be on your...

"Skinnamarink"

"Skinnamarink" is a darling song for K's when done with actions. It doesn't use the word "caring," but it worked well for us at the K level for that trait in character ed. and in our spring concert.

At 40

I had braces for the second time at about 40 years of age. Mine were only on the upper teeth, so that helped, but I've known other teachers who had them on both upper and lower teeth. As for the...
