I love mine too! I attach the button to my lanyard so the plus is that it is always on me. My kids know to instantly stop & freeze when they hear it. Very effective. I don't use it all the time...

We used Saxon many years ago. I didn't do the morning meeting portion of it and we followed the lessons but sometimes you can easily combine lessons. I rarely ever used the worksheets either. Once...

Handwriting & Phonics

How do you teach handwriting? Do you combine it with phonics instruction? I think I'd like to but the two don't match up. I teach handwriting by teaching common strokes together (letters with long...

Thank you :)

I love these discussions. Thank you for sharing. I agree that most teachers do a lot more with their "calendar time" than just discuss "today is, yesterday was, tomorrow will be." I had some...
