Do five and six year old kindergartners eat pencils? Seriously… I think I sharpen 50 pencils per day!🤣

With all of these changes and teaching live 3 or 4 times a day how are teachers supposed to have time to assess students? Most of the assessing is done one on one

How the heck can I teach a kindergartener over the computer? It's all hands on in my class for the first couple of months. I have made and bought so many manipulatives but I can't send twen… more

What kind of Earth day activities are you posting for next week?


What apps/platforms are you using to live video chat with your students who are distance learning?


What are some good Math curriculums? We have McGraw Hill but are looking for a switch

What are your routines for cleaning up after indoor recess?? My class gets so energized and loud during this time, and as they come to the carpet they are still having lots of sillies 🤪

Is it fair for divorced parents to take up two parent/teacher conference slots? I don’t think it is. I would love to hear your thoughts about this and how it os handled at different schools.

I have four girls in my class that talk to each other NON STOP! It is so disrespectful! They talk right over me and even begin talking again before I even finish my sentence asking them to stop! Help!

Anyone taught kindergarten or elementary schoolers and then made the switch to middle school? I thought it’d be nbd, but middle school is a different beast. They keep testing my patience. Any advice?

What do you take for grades in your class/school/district? We have so much fun exploring and make great growth, but I find our hands on activities, while meaningful, are hard to quantify. Any ideas?

I was told to give one students “food rewards” when he does what he is supposed to do. I will only do this if others on task gets the same reward. Non-perishable, kid friendly, bite size food ideas?


I want to do anchor charts with my class, but I stink at drawing. Who here does anchor charts and lack drawing skills? How do you do yours?

I just got a long-term sub position (~4wks) to kick off a new kinder class. It’s my first time with public school Kinder, and I am NERVOUS! Any tips and tricks for routine and building class unity?

any ideas on how to use these for kindergarten I have about 14 boxes

I have decided to use ClassTag this year instead of Bloomz. I was paying a monthly fee for Bloomz and it was so glitchy


So I hear we are no longer doing go math in the upcoming school year. Instead, we will all be doing envision. Has anyone used envision and what are your thoughts on the program?

That was just a preview…
