Interesting Idea

This is an interesting idea... do you think you could do this with less time? I only have 40 minute class periods, so I don't know if there is enough time to teach 2 lessons. :(

Question about the Calculator

Those of you that are in agreement with the use of calculators for your lower performing students, are calculators allowed on the state exams?

How do teach them all?

I teach math to a huge range of abilities all in the same class. I have some students that can't tell me which single digits numbers are even and which are odd. And they sit in the same class as...

How did you tell them?

I am 13 weeks pregnant and barely showing, but I already have students asking other teachers if I'm pregnant. I've only told a few close friends and plan on telling my principal after we get back...

Think Sheet

I agree... do not enable her to continue being a drama queen. I too have used the idea of writing down what they are feeling. But I ask them right away to write it down... I have a pile of Think...

Check System

I agree... never get loud... you're just giving them a reason to get louder. If it's the entire group that is talking, I start adding time to the clock. I will write ":30" on the board without...

My Division Family

I haven't come close to decimal division yet either. We are still working on just long division... especially with 2 digit divisors.

I teach division using a division family.

We are a 6-8 building and we have six 40 minute blocks during the week for academic subjects. "Exploratories" (gym, tech lab, art, music, etc.) have two or three 40 minute blocks during the week. ...

Clip Chart

Have any of you ever used a clip chart for behavior management in 6th grade? It's something I think I'd like to try but I'm not sure if it'll work for this age. Or if our 40 minute blocks are...

A Behavior Management Plan

I like this

I like the idea of having parent contact on both ends. While I have had good parent contact, it's not sometime I've ever had students work towards. I can definitely see it as something they would...

Still keeping our fingers crossed!

We haven't made it for math in 3 years and we still haven't heard yet what the status is for this year. It makes me so nervous, since I was hired last year to help remedy this situation. I really...

Clip Chart in 40 minute class???

I love the idea of the clip chart expecially the part of being able to raise the students up after being moved down. And I really like that every student is addressed individually at some point. My...

Clipboard + Homework Dilemma Form

I too use a clipboard system, although my system is much less involved. If my 6th graders have their work, I leave the box blank. This means that they get full credit for the assignment, 2 points. ...

I have always used Do Now's. I teach 6th grade math and I usually post a few problems from the previous lesson's topic as review. Then, as students are finishing up, I ask a few students to write...

I agree

I too can't stand the electric pencil sharpener. I have a manual crank sharpener in my room and my 6th graders don't like to use it. I also have 1 small individual sharpener near the trash can that...

My thoughts

Having taught 7th grade math in the past and 6th grade math now, first I have to say that I'm sorry that last year didn't go so well. That being said, I would be totally fine with you wanting to...
