I keep reading about gamification in the classroom. Is this a good idea or silly?

I would recommend starting with a unit and seeing how it works for you! I’ve definitely seen success with gamification! Especially in regards to kids taking time to practice a skill to earn a badge!

I've had some success with it, but it definitely takes some effort on your part to get it set up and then some trial and error to work out any problems. Also, if you have enough tech in your room (laptops, iPads, etc.), I highly suggest Classcraft, https://www.classcraft.com. There's a free version to start with, and the paid version doesn't cost too much each month. It can really help with gamification in the classroom and I've enjoyed using it myself.

Am I the only teacher who doesn’t have family or friends willing to help with their classroom? I’ve moved rooms every year for the last 5 years and I have a large family and lot of friends, but no one is ever willing to help. I told my mom today that it really hurts my feelings, as she declined my request to help as she simultaneously asked ME to help do something for my sister’s house. I explained I’m always there when people need me, but I feel let down when I’m in need. Anyone else?

We're returning to the classroom! I haven't taught live, in a classroom, since Friday, March 13, 2020. Ack! This is also my first full year as a teacher. I have four of my students and 3 students from the younger class coming to my hybrid class for three hours M, T, Th, F, starting this Thursday. Any ideas? Tips? Rules? I have lots of ideas, but figured I should pick the experts' brains, rather than freaking out and spinning my wheels. I'm feeling very high anxiety today. Thanks!
