Multi section caddy

You know those plastic shower caddies, that have a large section on one side, and two small sections on the other? That's what I use in my KG class. I keep markers in one section, pencils, in...

different sharpener

For my kids I will usually just use that sharpener that is made for fat pencils, it make the lead a little less narrow and sticky outy (not a word, I know).

Sometimes I also try different...

Sleepy Babies

Know what I do with my little sleepy babies? I let them sleep! I mean, really what else am I supposed to do? And I'm happy to pull out my Teacher Bear on any administrator who complains.

Not Terrible

We use it at our school (though thankfully that's all we use), it's not terrible. It has a good "student profile" page that details exactly which skills they need to work on and are ready to teach....

We do a lot of practice in whole group time. We review our voice levels (not nearly as cute, we just have voice 0, voice 1 (whisper), voice 2 (small group), voice 3 (whole group), voice 4...

Great thoughts!

I really liked your idea of alternating days, that's something I hadn't thought of doing. It would allow the little ones to start getting a good foundation in math, especially first semester, while...

1x per week

50 minutes on Fridays
Of course, I work in a small K-12 school, and there's only one teacher. High School and Jr. High have it multiple times a week, but elementary is just once.

Fading rewards

My school used Class Dojo, and one of the points that they can get is for "getting started quickly". In the beginning I give out a lot of points and make a big deal about this "Oh wow, I see Mary and...

Jack Hartman is a favorite

My kids LOVE his videos! I thought he was so cheesy, but I can't argue with the kids!

The first grade teacher used Go Noodle a lot, which she says works really well with her active class (12 boys...

I wish!

1. We do "rest time" the first semester for about 30 minutes around 1:00. Which by second quarter turns into quiet play time for most of the kids, but a few still do want to rest.
2. It's a full day...

Start by asking!

If she's anything like me, she's probably so busy keeping things going that she just isn't thinking about it. I recommend that you just ask!
You could ask, "hey, I noticed that Joey and Anna are...

Combining Pre-K and K

So, I teach in a small private school, with a very high number of ELL's (like, 90%). We really want to offer a Pre-K class, but just don't have the space. The idea being that it would help the ELL...

Saying no...

That's a big one for me.

After the first semester of my second year I learned that I have to say "no" to myself when I want to work seven days a week.

Not set in stone

We start with a story, and do a mini lesson around that (like ordering events, talking about characters, etc-usually pretty simple in the beginning)
Then we do a water/take off jackets break

I would start by putting child locks on some of those cabinets if you can.
