How do your students move for Daily 5? How do you know where they are supposed to be? I've seen clothespins on a box and magnets on a board. I would love to see pics.
First Grade Teachers
tomorrow I begin my first teaching job, it is first grade and I have had no time to prep. School started almost 2 weeks ago I need ideas for classroom management and math centers. Any help?
Does anyone use Fundations in 1st grade? We are piloting it in our district as a tier 1 for all kids as our daily phonics program. Trying to figure out how to set up classroom w/ all individual tools?
What kind of behavior systems do you use in your classroom? I teach 1st grade. I’m tired of using the folder/calendar system with 🙂/🙁 and a prize box. Any ideas?
How do you handle it when the kids just want to gather around you and chit chat? I feel so pressured by all the things that need to get done that I have to ask them to tell me later. Ideas please!
For those of you looking for easy extra income, you can teach English to Chinese kids online. If anyone is interested, email me at more
I am wondering if anyone has tips to ensure students are on task while I do a small group. No busy work... must be ela standard driven.. my kiddos seem only on task a little- one hour daily
