I've used Classcraft, but not as completely as I would have liked. I find it works better with some classes than others.

Classcraft is awesome! My son's hs English teacher uses it!

My 8th graders and 10th graders get super into it. My seniors are harder to convince but I think if you play it up and lean into it I think it will help. The kids really like the quests function and we did lots of boss battles to review for tests.

I forgot to mention in my previous reply that I also regularly use escape room and breakout scenarios. I've even done these as testing and exams.

Kahoot is an amazing classroom game

Opinions wanted-Does randomly calling on students using a random generator create an emotionally safe classroom? I had a very quiet class last year where no one wanted to answer (Precalc) and I called on the students randomly and that caused anxiety among some students. I want it to be safe to answer, but of course I don’t know the students previous classroom experiences with other teachers. What are your best practices?

Feeling very down today. In my 10 years of teaching I have had furniture thrown at me, students destroy my classroom, call me a F@&ing B!+@= to my face, & more. But we are always able connect at some level. I get those "tough kids" year after year because I am good at building positive relationships over time. These same kids who would fight with me, would fight *for* me in a heartbeat. But this year is so different. They will steal from me and lie to my face with zero remorse or care. Over it.

I have a suggestion/ things you want me to know box in my classroom. Today one of my students put a note in the box saying her mom lost her job and she feels bad because she is the poorest student in the class. She said the other kids have cool things and she is poor. I want to help her but don’t want to offend her parents. Any suggestions?

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?
