I recently discovered a site called First Book Marketplace. If you’re at a Title 1 school you can buy from them at extremely discounted rates.

I like to hit up retiring teachers or those leaving the district. Also, when libraries clear out their old material you can usually get free or cheap used books.

Twice a year my library hosts a used book sale. I have a tremendous amount of gently used novels for fairly little out of pocket expense.

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

If you get word that the fall will start out online again, how many of you will look for another career path? It’s one thing to end a year online, but to START one and actually teach with fidelity seems like a whole different beast.
