Icebreakers

High interest novels

I suggest the Bluford series. They address issues of interest to students such as peer pressure, romance, gangs, and other contemporary issues. The reading level is not very difficult. Plus the...

one addition

The previous poster is on point: the rules are the same all the time. I would suggest you strive to word them in a positive tone. An additional rule would be to keep personal electronics turned off...

been there myself

My experience with students of this age who have reading difficulties is that it is a hard row to hoe. Hopefully you will have some literature that the students will have an interest in. This kind...

Twitter

Using technology in the classroom

I've been out of the classroom a bit over the past few years. I am about to get a job in a private school with NO technology to speak of (no interactive white boards, only a teacher computer in the...

DO tell more!

I would love to know how to get my students to WANT to read. In all my years of teaching I have never experienced kids in great numbers WANTING to read or willing to read independently. What is...

a few comments on your list

Brian's Hunt is a sequel to Hatchet, which is often read in 6th and 7th grade. I wouldn't recommend this for 4-5 unless you've read Hatchet. The Chocolate Touch is a cute read and there are many...

CAFE for middle schoolers

There was a thread--and I wish I could locate it--that was about changing what CAFE stands for for middle schoolers. The acronym would stand for different activities more appropriate for more mature...

Top Chef Just Desserts

I've been watching it today on my DVR--I caught 3 episodes! That Seth was kept as long as he was because he brought the drama, but I guess he just wasn't stable enough to keep going--too bad,...

In the Middle Book Talk

So sorry to jump in so tardily, but by serendipity, I purchased this chestnut resource last May for a mere dollar. I have not been reading it though because I had 2 other books I wanted to read to...

teaching 7th grade language arts.

This is my first time teaching 7th grade and it's been a long time since I taught LA. Are there any pet projects or novels you like to read? Any hands-on activities you do with your students or...

Teach Like a Champion

I am reading this book this summer. It is pretty heavy reading and comes with a DVD to see actual champion teachers doing the techniques. Lemov lists techniques that teachers should practice for...

oops!

I didn't notice until I posted that the recipient is a student teacher! In that case, I would give a more lavish gift as some have suggested. Also, if there is a book you really believe in that the...

gifts for a man

I would never buy any teacher a mug or bag since most teachers have plenty of both. I stick with consumable gifts for almost everyone. I go to Bath and Body Works and select hand soaps and...

that your situation is one a lot of people are experiencing. You put a human face on a national problem of unemployment. Here's hoping that things pick up soon for your family.

Yes...

Luckily for me, my husband is also a teacher. We hope our kids will find alternative careers that aren't in education. That won't be hard to do considering how teaching is so down-trodden these...

You know that song, "If you're happy and you know it?" I use that tune and sing "Put your...

that jury duty might be a nice day away from the students too. You might be able to read a magazine in the holding room for an hour or two. You might get selected for the jury and have to miss...

then I feel that the custodians are just shirking. I would ask the custodian that you think is supposed to do it if he knows what is going on and get the 411 from horse's mouth. I don't think you...
