There's just no way

I teach Kindergarten. There is no way we can start the school year distance learning. I'd vote for just holding your kid back a year instead of doing distance learning. Zoom calls would be a hot...

Same as others

We take all of our kids (usually around 100 or so) and for each student we write down behavior, test scores, and overall academics. We also make lists of 'do nots' like 'do not put this kid in same...

Sbkangas5

Not Go Math, and our program only suggest 11 lessons for topic one. So 2 weeks and a day if we're following the curriculum. They decided we needed even more time for some reason. There's definitely a...

Welcome to the kinder team

I LOVE it. I don't think I'll ever be as happy in another grade as I am in kindergarten. We truly are like a separate little world.

Some things to remember:

- the kids really, truly, are...

I'll put it this way...

I hate the phrase "teach the curriculum with fidelity."

As a funny anecdote, Admin at my last school said this frequently when we met to go over 'action plans' and meetings with 'data analysts' to...

Am I the crazy one here?

Had my first mild disagreement with my team today. Honestly, I really need a gag sometimes, but in my defense, it wasn't an argument just a debate over time lines. But it was in front of admin, so in...

No point

Really, other teacher just wants writing to go along with the Three Little Pigs. Couldn't tell you why it's so important, but I'll pick my battles.

I ended up going with this idea + sequencing so...

Three Little Pigs

Help! I need to come up with writing plans for either "The Three Little Pigs" or "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs."

Honestly, I'm lost. Personally, I don't like prompted, sentence starter...

Honestly

As someone who grew up in southern CA, I agree with them. Shark attacks are extremely rare - she's more in danger of dying in a car accident driving to the beach. My only hesitation would be to first...

I feel you

That's happened to me before. I have tricky veins and can only donate from one arm usually. I had a nurse insist on trying my other arm once and that happened. She poked me a half dozen times,...

Is anyone else not doing weekly zoom sessions?

I keep seeing posts from teachers even in my own school about their daily zoom or google meetups where they're teaching materials and handing out paperwork daily.

I've been sending a weekly email...

Principals appreciation day

I have a question! Would it be weird to send an email to my P for principals appreciation day?

I transferred to this new school in January. I hated my last principal and left almost every meeting...

Should I collect loaned books?

I have a set of old readers from a reading program. I didn't buy them, they were donated to me by the library which rejected them because they're decodables, not AR. It wasn't a complete set and...

This might be odd advice

But if this continues to be an issue I'd suggest being upfront in your interviews about a bad reference.

My first year teaching was at a school the initially looked great but slowly wore on me for...

A lot!

- Not really working much. No zoom allowed and district has advised to only contact families once a week. So a LOT of free time.
- I feel like I can focus on my health more. I'm trying to lose...

Yup

That's my city and man are people peeved. Theres now a petition for her resignation. I definitely do not want to be a test subject. Not to mention the fact that this is my city and normally I love...

I'd say I'm pretty fiscally conservation

but I really wish the government could declare a rent and mortgage freeze nation wide. Students wouldn't have to pay rent and landlords wouldn't have to pay their mortgage. It can be like the entire...

Yup

I agree with the others and have the same experiences. Zoom isn't allowed and even if it was, I'd have minimal engagement. I email weekly, gave parents a list of resources, and FaceTime or call...

That's rough, having 2 principals would suck. Two different people to impress. But on the flip side, you have two chances to make a good impression! Also, how rude of that speech path. I'm the same...

I think I messed up pretty big

So I transferred over to this new school in January. LOVE IT. Minus this whole distance education thing, which for my district just means emailing or calling the families once a week to make sure...

Panicking about grade book

Shelter in Place

From what I've heard, grocery stores and essential stores are still open but residents are supposed to stay in homes. I wonder how they're going to enforce that.

Should I stay or should I go? (Nananananana)

Definitely have to sing the title, by the way.

So I was planning on taking my puppy on his first camping trip this upcoming Spring Break (April 6-13th). I finally decided on camping at the Valley...

DOn't go in

I would say I'm a decently selfish person. I don't like when others like co-workers or admin ask me to do things that aren't my responsibility. If a co-worker told me this though, even if I wasn't...
