I'm so glad

We don't have one of those locally, or I would be in my car heading that way now!

I hear your frustration. I guess the real question is do you have a choice? It was mandated to us, and I felt very similarly to you. I was a successful teacher with great scores, and I felt if it...

It's hard without training

I really like the UOS (ducks the tomatoes being tossed in her direction)

I didn't at first - it took a lot of reading, a great week of training, and participating in the Facebook groups to help me...

I love . . .
polka dots - they are such a happy pattern
Floral patterns in deeper colors
Stripes with a vest or cardigan
Brightly colored or patterned pants
Metallic shoes and my leopard flats...

I feel you

Very little is more tiring. I've spent more time than I care to count over the last few years. I take a survival kit of my tablet and charger, snacks and bottled water, and cough drops (hospital...

I think it's a tough situation

When you really want to do something and the schedule won't allow it. Morning meeting is a cornerstone of Responsive Classroom, and you need 20-30 minutes for it first thing. I'm lucky that my school...

I'm in the 98% path

No school on Monday for us, and yes, the traffic was noticeably heavier this morning!

Me, too!

I love this book, and I really hate they are making it a movie. This will probably be my last year with it as well - I'll move it to a book club choice next year.

I made it!

Isn't it amazing what you find when you're decluttering? I started back to work yesterday, but I had finished all my summer projects. It's a great feeling!

Using RIT dye on seat sacks help

I have a class set of denim seat sacks, that after six years of use have faded. I would like to dye them, but I'm concerned about the dye bleeding off on to my students uniforms. Anyone have any...

I love my instantpot


While not instant it is faster
For example, pulled pork in 70 minutes, pot roast in 90
The biggest benefit to me is that once you press start you can walk away

This is what I do

Furniture first, like everyone else - then it starts to feel like my room.
I plan out my b-boards at home, so I can just hang them up when I get there.
Then I do any cleaning/dusting as I set out...

I'm in!

I've got one more week of uninterrupted summer, and that should be just enough time to finish the big purge and organize. This will be the first summer I've actually accomplished what I set out to do...

Time is the big issue

I have 125 minutes to teach ELA (reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary) and Social Studies. I've tried different things over the last six years, and I still haven't settled on something with which I...

No centers/rotations in RW

It is my understanding that in reading Workshop, the teacher presents a mini lesson (no more than ten), there is some brief guided practice, and then kids read. Eyes on print reading, no centers or...
