2nd Grade

Special Education Minutes

My building does heavy in-class support. We don’t call it co-teaching, bc there is no actual “say” in planning. But each special education teacher also has self-contained classes plus tutoring hours...

I think that is insane. But, if you have to do it, my guess is that the magnified scrutiny of those outside of the school is contributing to the hair trigger implementation of unrealistic...

Who’s the Boss?

Administration has decided that e-mails and the district messaging system - while previously it was a fine system, because the contacts were automatically recorded - are not enough and so now we must...

I would also set a visual timer for their work time, not necessarily that they have to finish it that quickly, but because it’s a visual representation of their time...and sometimes understanding how...

We have been encouraged to talk to each other and ask for help. We’ve been encouraged to share tips when we come across them. We are navigating this together and we need each other’s support to do it...

We have admin jumping in and out of our classes all the time. Half the time I don’t even see them until the notification pops up that they left the meeting. They are just making their presence known...

Teaching second grade, our team created weekly homework folders so every child had a set, their weekly practices pages, and resources in one folder. They took it home and back each week.

First, take a step back, a deep breath, and work on changing your attitude to a more positive viewpoint. Try to think of what GOOD things these students bring to classroom first. I know when you have...

Isn’t it funny how they take all the time in the world to complete an assignment but want you to drop everything and grade it?

I update my grade book once a week per district policy. You’ll have...
