Hi! Do any of you incorporate Montessori concepts/strategies in your public ed classroom? Care to share? Admin is open to it as long as it's standards-aligned.
Cleaned out my room on Friday. Who else worries that they'll NEVER see their classrooms again?
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
I firmly believe it should be a requirement for all administrators (from APs/principals to superintendent) go back into the classroom for 1 year after every 5 years in their current admin job.
We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
I will be teaching Chemistry this year in a modular classroom with no lab area. Any suggestions on a virtual lab option? We have chromebooks.
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
When a question is asked in the classroom:
Does anybody incorporate SAT/ACT vocabulary and question stems in their classes? How does SAT prep look like in your classroom?
If you're looking for something unique to post in your digital classroom i posted an audio field trip to Mackinac Island. https://anchor.fm/josh-h/episodes/Mackinac-Island-Field-Trip-eci0nb
Now that i'm back to the classroom, I realize how out of shape/sedentary I have been and I'm absolutely exhausted. How do I get back my energy/ get back in shape... but gradually bc I'm old!!!!
Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
Has any special education teacher left the classroom to go into admin work? Did you miss working one-to-one with the kids daily?
My district is looking for suggestions on ways to modify our special ed program. Ours is making life hard for our general ed classrooms. Does your district have a model you would suggest?
Any suggestions on science or social studies curriculum to use in a self-contained (setting 4) EBD classroom?

I wanted to be supportive CHAZ/CHOP here in Seattle but I can’t be anymore. This is no longer a BLM movement protest (which I fully support & protest with) but instead is true anarchy. 1 dead & 1 injured (critical condition) this weekend and tonight over 24 shots fired already tonight in the area. When I first went down to this area last week I felt safe, today I went down there & was scared out of my mind. Seattle get your sh*t together.
