Just sharing a few of my doors. You can save them to your phone and use them in your Bitmoji classrooms.
6th grade Social Studies teacher here! 👋🏻 We currently use Inquiry Based Projects for our unit assessments. Any one else do this in their classroom? How do you do it?
I teach a self-contained special ed class for grades K-2, mild/moderate. I have a student with extreme behaviors, including destroying the classroom. My walls have been bare for months because he keeps tearing everything off of them. We will have open house in May. How can I "dress up" my room for open house without him destroying it? Should I collect artwork/work samples, and set them aside until the night of open house?
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.
I am not looking for a fight, but I was talking about this and thought it would be a good place to poll the masses.
Opinions on CRT?
Has anyone had success with using a wireless doorbell in their classroom? Thinking about trying it with 5th grade. Thoughts?
This upcoming year our school district is trying early release every Wednesday. I find it difficult to cover all the standards in a high school math class, and now I am concerned with having to modify/reduce our curriculum. It will take 10-15 minutes out of the period on Wednesdays. Do you think it will change what we can teach? A colleague suggested a flipped classroom. I teach in an affluent area that only spent a couple weeks remote learning for all last year. Thoughts on flipped classroom?
My daughter will be finishing school and in her own classroom for the first time this fall! I'm getting ahead of myself but I'd love to gift her a big basket of things (tools, supplies, etc) she'll need, especially the stuff that she might not think she'll need, along with just some fun things to help her settle in! I'd love some ideas of things you would've loved to receive when you were starting out?
I have been learning how to be more kind to myself this school year with it being my first year teaching in a non-traditional school with little to no training on how to run a classroom, let alone how to run it the way the superintendent & principal wants it to be ran. I have been learning as I go and some parents see it as inconsistency. So this is a friendly reminder for you to take care, be kind to yourself, we are all human and are here to learn. ❤️
I’m a longer term sub, and had my own classroom from Jan. until the end of this school year, due to the teacher moving out of state. I was told I was not getting paid because I am a sub..what can I do
Google Classroom and Zoom was on the fritz all morning. Lord, I have never worked so fast at multitasking of talking to a few students on Zoom, the rest of the students through Go Guardian, texting parents through ClassDojo, and calling parents. I was only able to teach math and science 🤣
Moving to a classroom of assessment capable visible learners. Any ideas for anchor charts on the Art room ?
Anyone signing up for the classroom manhattan GMAT course? Trying to decide what day to have class 🤔
Folks- Are your kids (elem/middle) enrolled in any online 1-1 or classroom type teaching/extra tution ((US or matt be from India) outside whatever school does? My elem kid performance has degraded lately and would like to offer him some help besides whatever time I spend with him. Thanks
What's a rule you are expected to enforce that you strongly disagree with or are indifferent to. Do you enforce it or take the risk? I move around as a tutor and am currently working with a school that has a ridiculously strict formal address policy. One of my second graders refers to me as "Miss Tutoring (my first name)" - it's about the cutest thing ever and doesn't bother me one bit. We are moderated sometimes and I'm more worried about her getting in trouble than me for not abiding.
We're going back to hybrid soon and my classroom is so empty, sterile and sad-looking. How can I brighten it up for my students and to lift my own spirits?
I’m getting my first classroom as a special educator! What are some things that you love having in your classroom (favorite books, favorite activities, posters, decor, organization tools, anything!)?
I am a California teacher looking to relocate. My son is pushing for Boerne. I have spent most of my life in small private Christian schools and loved it! When I moved to public school the large class sizes and trauma/sped students filling my classroom burned me out. I moved to homeschool this year (with my same district) and love it!!! I am curious about teaching in Texas. Class sizes, special ed, private school, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
