Does anyone teach grammar anymore? Parts of speech? Kids can't use vocabulary correctly in a sentence when they don't know difference between noun and verb, etc. Also way to decipher unfamiliar words.

Does anyone else feel like they have to rush through their curriculum (and stuff they love to teach) to make room to prepare for standardized testing drills? It's maddening!

I have some good students who just do what it takes to get an A-- nothing more, nothing less. How do I motivate them to do more?

My students are so stressed over upcoming standardized tests and I can't blame them. I'd be stressed too! I don't remember taking so many when I was in school. How many did you have to take?

Do you have students who rush through their tests and get bad scores as a result? And then when I ask them later what the answer is, they know it. Solutions?

Are you mostly a happy teacher this year? Can your students tell when you're not?

Which animal best describes a middle schooler? I think a squirrel- fidgeting, curious and sometimes fiesty. 😂

Don't be the teacher you had as a student- be BETTER!

I have to cringe when I hear other teachers mispronounce my students' names. I try really hard to get it right because I remember when teachers mispronounced mine.

Happy Friday! If you could have a teaching superpower, what would it be and why?

Do any of you teach multiple grades in one class? I teach ESL 6th-8th because of our small numbers, but it's a HUGE pain when it comes to scheduling and keeping track of grade-level activities!
