It's not a stupid question at all

but I'm not sure how to answer it. RC in first grade does not differ greatly from RC in other grades.

I use a lot of RC structures to help my day run smoothly and to create a classroom...

This has happened to me too...

and in those cases, I make sure the child understands that "taking a break" does not mean you get out of doing work. When a child is abusing the take a break chair (ie sitting there for entirely too...

I see nothing wrong with this

I have a similar policy. Obviously if there is an emergency, I make an exception. I made this policy (as I'm sure you did) after I had tons of students asking to go when I'm teaching and then I...

that's a tough one!

in the case of the child refusing to go to time out, I would probably then use a buddy teacher time out. I, like you, have also have that backfire on me (the child refusing to go), and when that...

Where is this research?

I too wanted to give up spelling tests this year. From personal experience, I don't feel they're very effective and are a time suck more than anything. So this summer I spent quite a bit of time...

Worry not...

I have been using RC in my classroom for 3 years now, and rest assured that my management has only gotten better using it! I'm not saying my class is ever perfect, but my class is far from out of...

Logical Consequence

I think it's ok to give these children a logical consequence even though you haven't explicitly taught them in class yet. My thought would be that if the students are fighting at recess, they need...

I would start with...

The First Six Weeks of School. It doesn't include all the RC components, but it explains the most basic ones, and it explains how you start the year. Good luck incorporating RC into your classroom!!

I don't think there's a particular right and wrong, as in you must do XYZ on the first day and this or that on the second day, etc. However, I think you're right to phase in different aspects of...

Paper...

I would recommend using paper instead of composition books for 2nd grade. Like the pp, I also use lined paper with a picture box at the top and my students keep their work in a two pocket folder. I...

Yeah, parking in new york is not easy. You either have to have substantial time to drive around and look for a space or be willing to pay for a garage. If you google "nyc parking garages," you can...

What about...

using rubrics? You could create rubrics that list the various skills you've been working on throughout the year and during a particular unit. At the end of the unit, you could grade each student...

These all sound too familiar!

This didn't happen to me but one of my teacher friends once had a parent ask if a character (like a person in a costume!) come to the classroom for their child's birthday! My friend was smart (and...

partner reading

I do not start partners right away, but I start them before the end of my first unit (I focus on routines during this unit, so it makes sense that we would practice partner reading during this time)....

Ready Freddy

I read a lot of the Ready Freddy books last year, and my kids LOVED them. The best part is that you can get them for like $1-$2 from Scholastic book clubs!

so my thoughts may not help you. But I usually assess my kids' writing using a rubric. At the end of a unit, I look over all their writing and fill out a rubric (complete with teacher comments)...

my understanding is that guided discovery is to give kids a chance to get excited about classroom materials and explore their possible uses. You can explore non-standard uses too! Like when...

Interactive Modeling

My best advice is to take everything VERY slowly and teach EVERY ROUTINE. I think most first year teachers (especially in primary grades) tend to assume that once you explain something routine-wise,...

responsive classroom

I mostly adhere to a responsive classroom approach (read Teaching Children to Care if you're not familiar). One thing I do that's separate from this is send a behavior folder home (i got the idea...

I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for in terms of long range plans. I have all my reading and writing mini-lessons in a word document. I don't do D5 - I do reader's and writer's workshop,...

I don't have them do it either
