Gifted

I second what Izzy23 said! Read the classics (and do comparisons with modern versions/movies). And definitely follow their interests. - In today's internet-connected world, it's easy to look things...

Absolutely. Like others have said, sometimes one teacher or another is just a better match for a student.



I've had this happen as well. A kid I've been warned about takes advantage of the...

Because there's only one other option, and it's worse?

In my son's first school, there were only two teachers per grade level, and in a couple of grades, they were very different - in personality,...

Don't let it bug you

I personally tried to avoid subbing in my own son's class (unless it was "specials" when he was younger - like art or something where his class only pops in for one period).

But it's really a very...

Library Shelving

I like the idea, but my school librarian use to put these plastic tags in the shelf whenever she removed a book to a "display" like that - so if you happened to go looking for it by author, you were...

I just want to second this!

Not only does it make the end-of-day routine simpler, but it also ensures that kids who are dismissed early for appointments have their homework!

Pack-Up

Pack-up can definitely be the most chaotic time of the day, and everyone is tired, so it harder to handle the over-stimulation.



I quite often have a student who loves the chance to read to the...

Stress Classes

I had one of those classes last week too. I've already vowed to decline jobs for that grade next year.

It may sound far-fetched, but I do think there's a pattern that class years who were born...

One More

I've seen "book Bingo" boards to send home over the summer. - They have different types of books to read, or different places to read, or other wacky things. The kids try to do five in a row.

Encouraging Reading

Matching kids to books is the most important thing. Get to know what they're interested in, and help them find books they'll really like. (And don't ignore non-fiction. - It's sometimes just the...

The only thing I can come up with is that kids tend to have a more relaxed relationship with the PE teacher than their classroom teacher. Because PE is naturally noisy and full of movement, they...

True. We spend so much time telling them they can do anything they want (meaning in a good way - that they can learn anything, or work to become anything) that they take it way too much to heart.

I'm not surprised that numbers are declining, and expect that will continue. I'm sure everyone has their own reasons, but these are why I didn't encourage my own son to go into teaching (even though...

I agree with whiteturtle. It's all about the fear of losing the routine of the school year. But in a way, that's all the more reason to show them you (and the rules) are still there. You did...

definitely rude, possibly illegal

She was way out of line! I might be afraid to make a legal issue of it unless I was prepared to leave, though, in case it made the environment even more toxic.

That said, if you are thinking of...

Communication is Key

Answering as a sub - I've seen the complete gamut from rooms were the sped and gen-ed teachers traded off, to ones where the sped teacher pulled small groups, to ones where she "floated" and helped...

Like sonoma said,

I like the concept, but find many of the kids don't use them. If you want the space for other things, I do like the idea of personal word books.

You could get some cheap 3-prong folders and start...

You can do it

Your answers are already in your post - it's nothing you did wrong! School is stability for these kids, and transitioning to a summer without that is scary. Their behavior is reflecting that.
