I've loved them so far...

but I think it's crazy that we are grading them for the 4th nine weeks. It seems unfair to the children.

2nd grade

Currently teaching this in 2nd grade- it's a struggle every year! They don't ever see analog clocks so they have no background knowledge. Then they never use it so they forget it by the next grade!

Atlanta area

The job he is looking at is in Atlanta, so I guess we'd live close to there. I looked at a school district in Alabama but they don't publish salary schedules and said that there was no guarantee of a...

Georgia Incentives?

Nothing has gone through yet, but my husband has been looking at some jobs in Georgia. Do any of the districts there pay an annual stipend for National Boards? I think the state does if you certified...

This was my class last year! No major behavior issues, but I felt that 75% were ADHD and the rest of them couldn't concentrate with that mess, so they didn't try. Some years are survival years...

I used black and white copies and the directions don't say anything about it not being allowed, so I would assume it is fine.

I used multiple goals and different goals for different students. I...

Suggestions?

While I have to use LC for my whole group instruction, I get a lot more freedom in my small group instruction. However, I am a youngish teacher so by the time I went to college, we were not really...

Ugh

We have had it in our district as a resource for a few years. It has always been something we should be using, but this year we got the "if we don't see the anchor charts from her or you won't use...

C2 woes

Teressawac, are you going to redo C2? I didn't certify the first time by two points. I got a 1.5 on C2 so I decided to redo that. I got a 119 the second time around when my C2 score went to a 3.0....

Same here

I felt exactly the same way! I blamed the scorers and spent a long time thinking about how I thought I should have certified. Then I talked to people and read everything and focused on one section...

At my school, students are sent home if they have live lice in their hair. I would ask a nurse (if you have one) to see what the protocol is for your school. If they do send them home, I'd call the...

One year

I would definitely not suggest doing all of the components in one year. It is definitely not impossible, but I think that if I had given myself more time to focus on either C2 or C3 I would have...
