I have a period of the day when 1/2 the class goes to band so we also do study hall. Our study hall is at the end of the day so they usually get a start on homework - however, I have had some band...

Us too

It will be interesting to see what people think, we have them and I have the hardest time using them.
I DO have students use them to look up vocabulary words.

Scary stories

Advice please! My students are motivated by the Harris Burdick prompts I gave them, but in about half the stories they are writing the main character dies/get murdered. Not sure how I feel about...

I used the math section of Moby Max. Moby Max rewards students with game time for X amount of work completed - so that was my reward. I did not grade them, but there is a tracking system that...

At this point, QP and I have arranged an exchange, but it sounds like others who have responded might want to set up exchanges.
