I have many goals as a teacher. One is to be more present in the classroom and stop multi- tasking. What are your goals?
I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?
Hi everyone!!! Last year I put together a list of classrooms to exchange valentines with! We mailed 1 valentine to each class and included a picture if we could, and a few things about where we live and things we do!
I currently have 13 classes signed up! The more the merrier!!
We have classes CA, WI, PA, KS, TX, RI, MI, Canada, New Zealand.
I have a form to fill out if you are interested! I will email everyone the list probably at the end of the week if not sooner!
Anyone use edgenuity? I'm starting Monday with students, never been trained, no guidance. Don't know how to set expectations if I don't know. ice breaker ideas? I'm not in my classroom.. media center.
Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice.
I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school.
Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return.
Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
What is the best digital tool you have used in the classroom and what grade level is it best suited for?
I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?
I need some advice! I am a new teacher in a Behavior unit. I have a token Economy in my classroom and a leveled behavior system. Some of my kiddos are not responding to it. They are k-2 students.
What is your top favorite lesson? Mine would be one last year when I had to find the time to get into the classrooms and teach. I led a talk about the Harlem Renaissance and the kids made a jazz collage. It will be much easier with the art room back open.
Hey Coaches! I’m Alyssa, and I’m one of the Community Leaders here at Fishbowl. I’ve been in the classroom for 10 years and a classroom coach for 6 (mainly elementary/Pre-K). Excited to be here!
What kind of behavior systems do you use in your classroom? I teach 1st grade. I’m tired of using the folder/calendar system with 🙂/🙁 and a prize box. Any ideas?
What's one amazing thing you've seen happen in your classroom or school recently?

I just got brand new iPads for my classroom and need to find some apps that are appropriate for my prek students. We just went back to remote learning today. Does anyone have app suggestions?
I bought two kindle fire tablets today. I want to use them in my classroom this year, specifically in my listening station (instead of the cassette+books) how do you use them in your classrooms?
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!
If you’re worried about the classroom climate help with this resource. Helps kids transition back with empathy and equity for remote learners!
I’m student teaching and I’m completely stressed out. I’ve been in an elementary classroom as a TA, but this is way different.
Join us tonight at 7pm!

For those of you having a bad day, consider this:
I’m guessing there are fewer job opportunities for people who choose more specific degrees, but that pay would be higher. Would you suggest a niche path or cast a wide net?
