economy system

I've been using an economy system for 6 years and I love it. They get paid for attendance every day, for the classroom jobs they have, returning permission slips/weekly progress reports, getting...

Buzz (from Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire)

Behavior

One of the best things I've done for this is Morning Meeting. This is where we talk about/role play/use games to build the community we want to have. Then I use some of Whole Brain Teaching...

Bridges Math

We had some classes pilot this program last year. Unfortunately, we started mid-year and quickly found out that that was very difficult to do. This year we are starting from the beginning so I...

The Very Last Time

The Very Last First Time is about an Inuit girl who goes down under the ice to collect mussels for the first time by herself. We end up using the phrase "very last first time" a lot!

read aloud

I have a whole group meeting area in my room where kids sit on the floor, on bleachers, stools, special chairs, etc. I do read aloud there, just as I did in primary. I try to read a novel for 15-20...

seating for a combo

I teach in 4/5 and I mix the kids up. My student desks are in groups of 4 and I have two 4th and 2 5th graders at each table. I like the feel that we are a whole class for most of the day. It...

Spellling

I use Words Their Way for spelling with my 4th/5th grade class. After the initial assessment I put them into ability groups. I can usually work that into 4 groups. Then I give the direct...

Morning work

I would definitely have them read independently. I encourage my students to read in every available free moment (in addition to our reader's workshop time). Not only is it a valuable use of their...

Genious Hour

A colleague and I did this last year and will do it again this year. We have 4th and 5th graders. Being able to choose what they want to learn about is a new concept and many had a hard time with...

5th grade classroom/road trip again

Mrsblueberry, I love that you have tables instead of desks. I did that in primary for 27 years and LOVED it! When I moved schools and went to upper grade, I didn't have the option. Your room looks...

Transitions and music

I still use an ipod on a Bose dock. It has plenty of volume and the ipod charges while it's on the dock so I never have to worry about the battery.
I have playlists for movement, writing...

Classroom economy 2

Most of my economy system I got from Mrs. Renz's classroom blog, but I've seen that classroom economy site, too. Both have lots of great information.

Classroom economy

Everyone in my class has a job that gets a salary. They have to apply for the job, listing their top 3 choices and I make the final decision as to who does what. They get paid $10 for each day they...

teaching a 4/5 combo

I'll be starting my 3rd year in this combo. It would be interesting to share thoughts and ideas. I could have gone to 2nd or 4th but chose to keep the 4/5 because I like it!

stipend for combo classes

Our district pays $1500 per year to teachers of combo classes. It's not much, but at least they recognize that the teacher needs to compensated for teaching 2 curriculums.

So sorry to hear about all the drama. I don't see it as typical for 4th grade, though. It sounds like just one of those groups that everyone hears about as they move through a school. Have you...
