Hello everyone! I am so interested in developing centers for my 5th grade math classroom. I'd you are a math center guru, I would love any suggestions, recommendations, or examples of what works and what doesn't work! Thanks!

With covid we can’t do centers, but hopefully we’ll be out of this soon.

I'm thinking for the future. And I'm hoping to take this conversation and adapt centers virtually if necessary? Just any thoughts for a first year teacher? Thanks! (BTW, new phone with new autocorrect tendencies - sorry for all the grammatical errors!)

I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present!

Just curious...What does it look like in your building when there are no substitutes available anywhere within the district's pool? Are you combining classes or having teachers cover an hour during their plan period? Do counselors, building administrators, and other "specialized" positions rotate in to cover the classes that are without teachers? It has become a daily challenge to staff our classes this year and I feel that the burnout rate is going through the roof!

My school has decided to bring all students back and put them all in the classroom. I have 29 students with the potential of 32. I don’t feel comfortable with this. We are supposed to try to keep 6 ft between isles, but in the row of students they are desk to desk. So shoulder to shoulder 6ft or less. Face to face is about 2ft, and some are much closer....... does anyone else have this going on at their school?

Does your school have a hat/hood rule?? I just don’t really see the point. I do not care at all if a student wants to wear a hat or feels inclined to put their hood up. What are everyone else’s thoughts? Should I care about this? I feel like I have bigger fish to fry this year!

Our school instituted a district wide 50% floor/grading policy. If you give a student an assignment and they do nothing, not even write their name, or turn in a blank sheet of paper, they get a 50%. If they score less than 50% on a quiz or test, we have to mark it up to a 50%. This is the new norm and is causing kids to not do work, or just the bare minimum. It has taken the joy out of teaching and has taken away the accountability of students. Anyone else facing this? What do you do?

Should I wait a few days before I wear them when driving? Even typing on my phone right now just looks strange.
