Looking for recommendation on apps for math centers

We are a pretty low tech district. We will be getting 6 ipads to share among 4 classrooms (K and 1st). I would like to use these in my math centers, but I have no idea what apps to ask the district...

At the beginning of the year I find peer pressure to be best. In my current class at least half the kids are major talkers. So, each day we have talked about how if I can't get through the lessons...

We are always doing a lot of movement - to their seats, back to the rug.

I get right into academic work, but in very small chunks. I have made the mistake of...

Using Scholastic News for the week

So, I am quite guilty of having piles and piles of Scholastic News (or Time for Kids or whatever else my school system decides to order) pile up on a back table in the room. I want to change this.

I have been of 2 minds on this

When I started, I spent whatever I wanted. I couldn't really afford that, but I had a vision I wanted to make happen.

I don't regret the spending, but I can imagine someone might.

I am so sorry! What a ridiculous situation.

My son's preschool uses those

But I am not sure where they get them (the mead marble cover). And they are pricey too! $5 each at least.

I found these that seem very interesting to me.

A checklist you keep right at the rug

So one thing that is very powerful for me is keeping a fresh classlist at the begining of the day at the rug. If there is a call out or other disruption I pause, look for the name and then make a...

I think that you are handling things as best

as can be expected.

It's not that she gets it wrong. Or wrong a lot. It seems like it is because she is rude and humorless. And apparently intimidates a lot of people, but can't be direct with...

Nothing

Every year I think "Has enough time passed" and every year I answer that "No." I don't want to answer questions about such a senseless thing.

I wish we didn't have snack. It's almost always unhealthy stuff and really unnecessary calories. BUT there is no way that is going to fly at my school. There is a real "mothering" spirit around here,...

What sort of present would be appropriate in this situation?

For the last few days a retired college has been helping transform my room. We were there today from 9 to 4 and will probably be there tomorrow around the same amount of time. It is possible it will...
