First one was the worst

I had the shot one afternoon. Took my mom for some eye surgery early the next day, and passed out in their office. Not something that has ever happened before or since. Still don't know if it was...

This assessment is often mis-used.

Think of it as an individual assessment for each child to help you guide their reading instruction and to help group like needs together in reading groups. Yes, unfortunately, in order to really use...

This might help you get started

I used to use these to help with geography lessons, back when I had freedom to teach the standards in whatever way I chose (the...

Could you use Google translate?

It would be time consuming, but it would probably not be too bad. Since the words are simple nouns the translation shouldn't be too complex. Use the copy and paste feature built into the Translate...

You've got some great suggestions here

I just wanted to add that the book The Kissing Hand, by Audrey Penn, has been helpful for some younger kids. I don't know whether it would be appropriate. Just thought I would mention it. Books...

Hang in there and take your time

making a decision. The first few years of teaching are hard! It does get a little bit better over time. You have had the misfortune of starting what is a very difficult job to begin with at a time...

I agree about Cynthia Rylant!

She is definitely one of my favorite authors. Some others a six year old might like are:
Iris and Walter, a series by Elissa Haden Guest
Houndsley and Catina, series by James Howe
Pearl and...

I'm so with you

I can't even make a phone call with my husband in the room. I am terribly nervous about speaking on the phone. I don't know why. I have to psych myself up to pick up the phone and call. You are...

I can't remember for sure. Either Sheryl Crow or John Meyer. Either way, we'd have some guitar playing happening!

Each weekly was a full week's work for us

We did a read through on Mondays, usually teacher directed, where students numbered paragraphs, identified/highlighted key vocabulary, and found the main topic of each paragraph.

Tuesdays were...

Not sure I'm there yet.

It feels very strange to see the e-mails from school and not have to pay attention to them. They haven't removed my name from the distribution list yet, so I'm getting all the notes about procedures...

Just thought I would share this recipe

It is a fave at our house. We are watching carbs, so rice isn't on our diet. This recipe is very tasty.

Taught for years at a school

that didn't release the lists to teachers until the afternoon before Meet the Teacher the next morning. It always meant a mad rush to label everything before the parents and kids arrived. And it...

Definitely not a designer here

but I kind of agree with the previous poster. I would keep painting of the larger pieces of furniture in something relatively neutral like your gray, and then add the teal in softs and smalls that...

A visit to the doctor might be in order

He may have had a small stroke that weakened one side. Of course moderate strengthening exercises would probably be what was recommended anyway.

Family Medical Leave

is NOT just for people with children. You can qualify if your doctor says that you have a medical reason for not working. It sounds as if you have that. And, if on that leave, they have to hold...

I know this isn't much help, but you do qualify for a Family Medical Leave and could take a year off to see how things fall out and return to a position next year. You would however, not get paid,...

I retired this week

I had planned to work for three more years. (I was also in the DROP program.) But no matter how much I enjoy teaching, I enjoy living more. I am a high risk person, and would have been working with...

We just got a draft copy of the guidelines.

We are in a hotspot for Corona right now. Planning on back to school as usual. Parents can opt for virtual school, either county or state based. Masks are "encouraged" but not mandated. Kids will...

In my experience with autistic students

phonemic awareness is often a problem. He is not unique in this regard. I have had students that could read pretty much anything put in front of them, but couldn't spell cat. I don't have any easy...

I can't settle into any planning

I usually have a project or two that I work on over the summer to prepare. But, I can't seem to focus on anything at all. Just doesn't seem worth the effort to prepare something I may not be able...
