Custodial Parent Issues

First off, let me compliment your professionalism in the face of such a personal attack. If my child were one of your students and had to witness this behavior, I would be so relieved that you...

How I manage

Maryell, I purchase a dry erase marker for each student at the beginning of the year, using the limited funds provided by our district. Then, during the first two weeks of school, I teach them how to...

I haven't seen that, but I've always thought it would be a great idea! If this is true, it will be interesting to see what type of communities they select to work in. As much as I would like to see...

New for next year

I'm excited about tweaking my classroom management a bit. I attended a Rick Morris workshop and am looking forward to implementing some of his suggestions. I also plan to begin a science project that...

I'm so sorry!

Please don't quit! As a classroom teacher, I would be thrilled to have you working with my students. You sound like you're there for the kids...unlike your coworkers. The new teacher will need your...

Holy Cow!!!

We ask for nothing! We have been told to be very careful about asking for anything because parents see this as a requirement. We are a public school, and parents are not required to provide anything....

I wonder...

if the reason no one was at the funeral is because no one else gets off the island. :eek: I believe we're going to find out that there is some truth to what Ben and Locke are saying; that by...

I'm not so sure

Although I like the idea of team teaching, I'm not so sure team learning is appropriate for third graders. What I mean is, take some time to focus on what works for the students, rather than on what...

Lodi 3rd

I am in California and have never heard of the Surplus Textbook Warehouse in Sacramento. Can you tell me more about it? What is the address? Is it open every day or only occasionally? Can anyone...

I agree with your response and am glad you are encouraging the OP to take action. However, I'm a bit concerned about your statement that My personal experience is quite the opposite. Many parents...

Perfect Example

In my opinion this is a perfect example of why a general ed. setting is inappropriate for this child. In a general ed. classroom, students are expected to be able to sit through a test session...

field trip nightmares!

Nightmare #1
Last year we had scheduled a trip for our 120 third grade students, along with about 45 adult chaperones. The trip was to have been an all day experience. When the buses were a half...

Elapsed Time

I've created a daily schedule for our class and a bunch of questions based on that. For example,

*What time do we begin Guided Reading?
*How long is our math time?
*Draw a picture of a clock...

Only 9 more years

My husband is a firefighter and will retire in 9 years at the age of 58. I'll also be 58 at that time and plan to retire with him. We plan to travel quite a bit and in between trips I can sub for...

Such a sad day

I went to the funeral of a friend and colleague today. She passed away very suddenly while on Spring Break. She was in Las Vegas to get married, and collapsed from a heart attack. She died in her...

Disney Vacation Club

I was curious if any of you are members of the Disney Vacation Club? It's a timeshare opportunity offered by Disney. My husband and I just recently became members and I'm very excited, but a bit...

I looped from 2nd to 3rd and loved it! However, it was not my responsibility to inform the parents; it was the principal's. He sent out a letter telling parents that their student would be assigned...

Okay, the third strategy...

The third strategy I implemented quickly and with great success is the increased use of sign language. I was already using a few, but the conference gave me confidence to add more and realize that it...

Oops...I said three strategies

I just realized I only shared two strategies. :o

I'll try to get the third one later. I'm prepping for a field trip with 180 third graders today. My mind is a bit scattered.;)

Three simple strategies

True on so many levels

Although I haven't felt the push to exit our special ed. students yet, I'm sure it's coming. You're absolutely right about policies such as this causing harm to our students.
Wouldn't you think a...
