Yes, but things are changing here in US

Many of our salaries are based on Union and District negotiated base salaries and then step salary increases. Our private schools do not typically have Union representation. Currently most...

I like to take a combination of curriculum

Thank you, to our good neighbor!

Thank you so much for your much needed support! The morale of many teachers in our country is dwindling. When our leaders say 'failing teachers' and 'failing schools', we are attacked on a totally...

I have implemented something new that

seems to be making sense to the kids. It's called Gradual Release of Responsibility and has to do with "My Turn, Our Turn, and Your Turn".

I have mounted the posters on "stop light" colors of...

I know that it looks

overwhelming right now, but you can do this! If you make one chart every day or even every other day, it will be done in no time! Take it in easy, doable chunks. Make a list and cross one thing...

Sorry, I do not at this time, but this

should give you a good idea of what it might look like (http://www.thevirtualvine.com/123/lit/tasent.jpg). I would remove the capitalization and have the words from the sentences run on together for...

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS! It sounds like you are working on creating 2 nests - one for your little one and one for your classroom of little ones!

I had a very long detailed response typed...

Hi Rth2008 - I had 2 1/2 day groups

Thank you, SueHue! I just

ordered Phonic Pathways and Reading Pathways! It sounds like you use this like a center after teaching the kids, is that correct?

I like your slide blending activity as well. I've always...

Kids need a variety of practice with a

variety of tools, strategies, modalities, etc. What will 'grab on and velcro' for one child will not work for another. Some of what I use includes:

I have a rubric that is one page - still

as with many kinder assessments, it takes alot of time to do them 1:1. Our team chose a story that had clear story elements in it: "Armadillo's Orange" is a good one. There's a clear problem and...
