No idea, but...

I think this is a pretty good idea if it's implemented correctly. I have no clue how to effectively implement it with first graders because it seems like it would just be way more work on the...

Thanks, jen_nup!! That makes me feel a lot better about this! I know that I really just need to wait until they get the materials to us. They've already purchased the materials, so it is what it...

Discovery method

I try really hard to teach my kids to think about things and form their own understandings (TRY being the operative word there. LOL Sometimes, I do get frustrated because we go over the same things a...

The Great Mail Race

So, this has almost nothing to do with actually teaching the states and capitals, but I had my fourth graders participate in "The Great Mail Race." (Information here:...

I read something online (maybe Pinterest? I don't know lol) about the highlighters. I was going to mention that, but two already did. I don't do that in my classroom, but it seems like it would...

As for the test itself...

I will staple this scoring sheet to the test. I still circle every misspelled word on their test, but they get points for having the parts of the words that I was looking for. They don't lose...

Sure.

Here is an example of one of my "rubrics" if you will. It's not perfect by any means, but it works for what I'm doing. This one is for a group that was learning to differentiate between CVC words...

Heard of it, but not used the program

I haven't used it exclusively... Of course, I taught it to my kids as a strategy for writing, but it was not a "curriculum" for my writing block by any means.

I taught in a district that was...

Parent Volunteers

I have been tossing around an idea in my head for the last few weeks, and it seems like it would be brilliant - but at the same time it could turn into a complete nightmare. What do you think? Keep...

I use it...

with my Firsties. I like it, and the things that the kids learn from word sorts and talking about those sorts can't be replaced by simply "giving" them the information. I have spent the last two...

Scott Foresman/Pearson Reading Street

Oh. My. Gosh! My last district adopted Reading Street, and it was AWFUL!!! I left the district before they adopted the CCSS, so I don't know if it aligns well with that, but the basal itself was...

I suppose if we were avid coffee drinkers in this house, we wouldn't really like the Keurig either. As it is, I sort of love ours. DH only makes coffee "when he thinks about it" and I don't drink...

I definitely think "unfriending" was the way to go for you! Perhaps you could send her a private message in a few days (give her some time to cool down a bit). I was a beginning teacher what feels...

I tell mine the same thing, and they're pretty good at *reading* the words (some of them do still forget about the silent e when they are reading words, but they know the deal when I point out the...

I'm with Hariasa...

I tell mine the truth. I've never said "we have to hide because people kill people" (which I'm sure Hariasa doesn't use those words either), but if they ask, I won't lie to them. We had a lock down...

I, too, liked the show. I did wonder if she was a singer or dancer at first (lol), but I liked the performance and the effects. And having Destiny's Child back together for even just a few brief...
