Thanks again for the replies! I found out that I will actually be teaching 3rd next year, as I was originally told. There was a bit of movement that confused things for awhile. So I guess that will...

Thank you! :)

Thank you for the input! You are all so helpful!

I am still waiting to find out about my final grade level for next year, but you've made me feel a lot better about 4th being different from 5th. ...

Possibly switching from 5th to 4th...what's 4th like?

There's a chance I may be switching to 4th grade next year. I've taught 5th for 4 years, and before that, I taught 1st for 2. I absolutely loved 5th at first - the independence, the literature, their...

Benchmark :(

Yes, yes, yes. Finding your post was so helpful to me because now I know I'm not alone. I actually ran the LBJ speech (second short read) through Word's text level and it was an 8.2!!!! I'm at a...

Yep! This is my fourth year using it as a read aloud in 5th grade, but it's going to be my last because of the movie, which makes me sad! :( But I am excited for the movie, and I'm especially glad...

Classroom Library

If you had to guesstimate, how many books do you have in your classroom library?
1,577. I'm using Classroom Booksource for the kids to check books out this year, so that's a current count. That...

I really don't like reading logs. I think they're largely useless, because avid readers find them tedious and those who don't read as much will probably grow to dislike it even more because of them. ...

I have a long last name, but my kids can say it, and they could when I taught 1st, too.

Teach them how to say it, but then be gracious with them. I personally cannot roll my r's, so I probably...

For the past 3 years, I've commuted about 20 miles, which took 25-45 minutes - longer in the afternoon than morning.

I'm switching schools next year. I'll be commuting 1 mile! There aren't even...

Envision Math?

I just got hired in a new district, and they use Envision for their math curriculum. I'll be teaching 5th. My previous school (where I also taught 5th) used My Math. I taught using Envision before...

I'm not in a portable, but I have had tables

I used the plastic book bins from Really Good Stuff (expensive, but those suckers have lasted me 4 years and are still holding up!) for all their stuff. My kids only had math textbooks, so these went...

American History books

Agree with so many of these. The Roanoke picture book by Jane Yolen is GREAT - my kids eat it up! They also love The Salem Witch Trials book by the same author - it's another "history mystery" book....

A 45 minute lunch that's half and half recess/lunch - so that recess ends up being about 20 min. Also, a 20 min afternoon recess. So they get 40 min total. At our school, K-3 get three recesses a day...

Time off

Never. My DH sees how hard I work. He's of the view that I deserve the vacation. He's never resented it. We get enough flack from the public about our vacations; I couldn't deal with it at home too.

Well, this probably isn't very helpful to you (sorry), but we're self-contained. Departmentalization in elementary is extremely rare in my area.

I love my Kindle Paperwhite! It's so easy to use and I can easily read it in all kinds of light - total darkness, outside on a sunny day, etc. I use my Kindle every single day.

I do buy books if...

I read it out loud in 5th toward the end of the year. I definitely would not read it to 3rd graders, and probably not even 4th. I think it's better for the 5th-8th crowd. It's a very dense read with...
