I don't use readers/writers workshop. In my school, we have AR(Accelerated Reader) , which is a big thing. I am reading Nancy Atwell's new book on reading. It sounds great. I would love to do a...

I'm in SW PA. It was really hot last week but luckily we just got out of school. I had FIVE fans in my room and it really didn't help that much. It was still miserable. The students were totally...

I wouldn't worry about it

When I student taught for my first placement, all st were expected to eat in the staff room. Luckily, there were a lot of us and we could sit together. Our co-ops basically ignored us but we were...

The Grass isn't always Greener...

I understand why you want to leave. I did. I lived and taught all over the world. However, it is hard to be a first year teacher without your family and friends there. Plus, jobs in other states...

Not always possible!

I've come to the conclusion that we can try but this is not always possible. I really need to get to know my students. I'm language arts so I think that is easier. They can write about what...

Similar Problem

In my school, we have about a 35% poverty level. Our principal believes that kids should have no homework or accountability. For instance, if they do nothing all semester, we are expected to make...

Good advice!

Apple annie,

I would love to have your make-up policy. For us, it is our school policy to not take off on late work, do retests, etc. For instance, I have had to accept work at the end of the...

Great post, Windycitybro

Thanks! I love your ideas of the doorbell and timing them. I actually have several timers but don't use them. I also use a bell but it seems like they are not responding to it very well.

The next person who...

First of all, I keep my students pretty busy so they will have homework if they don't finish it in class. That is a big motivation for them to work.

Also, I will say, "The next person who...

I also feel like all I do is work and work and it is still not enough. I spend so much on school supplies that I am ashamed to admit how much. I actually just got back from Staples. Our lousy third...

they will try to keep you. I've worked for several private schools in different jobs. At one, I was going to quit because I wasn't teaching the grades I preferred. The headmaster gave me a raise...

Grade and planbook

I use a planner and grade book to keep everything in. I usually sit or stand at my desk and call them up in alphabetical order. This is while the other ones are copying the warm-up or reading.

Thanks! I probably will just keep quiet...


Why would you assume my "rewards" aren't working? Just curious!

Actually, I have a pretty good plan going. It keeps me from yelling and lecturing. The kids like it and understand...

It's funny because I know next year is going to be SO much better. However, everyone keeps telling me that it really takes three years to really know what you are doing.LOL

No lunchtime work for me!

I do come early, stay late, and work weekends but there is no way I am having kids at lunch! That is where I put my foot down. I really think we need that time to just breathe.
