Anyone here do Scholastic book orders in their middle level classrooms? How do you get it to work?

I staple a “wish list” template to each book order for each student. It generates a conversation between students and creates excitement which in turn means more books are purchased. I’ve had more participation this year than ever before. I also only send them home every other month so as not to overwhelm families.

I agree with New Jersey. This year I am using the book orders to give every kid a new book each month. Did it last year and it was great

How do I respond to an observation score of a II in an area where I feel the score was unwarranted? I scored III in all other areas. The score was a II because I had students working on Google Classroom & was finishing up emails before I transitioned into the classroom reading. It’s the week before midterms, and I have duty for 20 minutes of my 50-minute planning period in 1st. I have to respond to these emails in a timely manner & all students were working diligently on the first assignment.

Is anyone else returning to fully in person learning? We have been hybrid/synchronous since September, which has been very hard and not very effective. They want us to have all Kindergarten students come back in March. I want to stop live teaching over google meet all day while also teaching my students in person at the same time, but there is not enough space in my classroom for safe distancing, not enough space for movement, and sitting at a desk all day is not appropriate for K kids!
