Best games for 3 year old?

After 25 years of classroom teaching mostly seconds and thirds, I'm now a full-time "care-giving Nonni" to an active, inquisitive 3 year old! I'm looking for suggestions for quiet-time educational...

If I didn't HAVE to go, I didn't! Be kind to yourself; you've done so much for so long-it's OK to let go...enjoy all your "lasts" and know that retirement is wonderful!

They'll be shutting down as of 12/31/17. They're owned by Blackboard. No renewals, and they're supposed to be pro-rating any accounts owed refunds...bummer!

Sun In

Anyone remember this stuff? You sprayed it into your hair and were supposed to tell everyone "the sun did it"? Turned my hair some pretty unnatural colors!

Hi, Everyone,

Three weeks to go, and it's "pay-me-now-or-pay-me-later-when-'school-hits the-fan'" time!

This is a question for those of you who administer PARCC: does anyone know where I can...

My team posts weekly homework, which I scan on the office copier and upload. The kids also get a "hard copy", but if they lose it or are out, they can download.

We usually put permission forms...

Something to think about...

I can tell that you are far from selfish, and you're concerned about your class. But think of this: what kind of a job are you going to do with the pain you're in? If you KNOW you're going to be...

Get them moving!

My class loves Go Noodle, and asks for it if I happen to get too busy to remember to throw it into my day. They're thirds. But long before You Tube, I had students get up and stretch for the...

Please don't "flame"

Ma Bethany,
All I can say is, "to each her own". No one is asking anyone to "do a lot of that". So please don't flame me.

I don't consider it "mean" to build up a class by making them feel that...

Bless you-that's a HUGE number of third graders! Right now, it sounds as though it's "all of them" vs. "you" can't win with those odds. Can't say that I've had a class that big, but I've had...

Does anyone have the link for downloading Super Speed Math? I was able to download Super Speed 1000 (for sight words) but can't get the whole brain teaching website to cough up the Math!

Considering it

Could it be because EVERY principal would rather have a nice, empty building to mosey into tomorrow?;)


Who plans PD involving out-of-towners during the winter?

I have a group this year that is already "experimenting" with cursive. If I don't teach it, they're going to develop their own corrupted version of cursive! We've used Loops and Groups in past...
