One Child One Conference

I am not sure of the entirety of the situation, but the two cannot be in the building at the same time from what I'm told. I'm not sure if there is an official restraining order, or just a history of...

I was hoping to have someone there, but the conference is my last one of the night and our social worker is only there during regular school hours. The principal may be able to pop in, but can't stay...

I'm nervous about letting the students read them on the rug because they're part of our (brand new!) reading program and I don't want them to get ripped. I've allowed students to do this in the past...

Alternatives to a chalk ledge?

The way our rooms are set up, there isn't a ledge for me to use. Most of my board is taken up with the smartboard :/

My reading program came with about 15 big books. I hate them. I don't know how to store them. I have a hard time physically holding them to read them. I'm very close to just looking up youtube videos...

Like Marci said, I would just keep it short. I eliminated calendar this year because I didn't have the physical room to put it and because the students got quickly bored with it. I did notice a...

From Kindergarten

I taught Superkids in Kindergarten and combined it with Daily 5 pretty effectively. I have not taught the program in 1st grade, so I don't know how it differs.

As for the Daily 5, I would always...

Not seizure

I highly doubt it's seizures. I've had students with seizure issues in the past and it's a different kind of staring.

Mom has talked to the doctor as it pertains to his inattentiveness and at this...

Math Activities for Early Finishers

I'm getting to the point in the year where my gap in math has increased as far as speed with facts. This has led to some students finishing their math in 5 minutes and others needing a full 20.
