Yes it is too much too soon! My school does not allow any free imaginative play. All centers are strictly standards based depending on either math or literacy.

There is a lot that is being put on our children in K, but most people do not realize the RSA law starts in K. Unfortunately, they are tightening the law in regards to stidents in K. That data is reported to state.

Yea it is too much too soon. My school only has 30 mins of blocks/choice time and 30 mins of recess. Everything else is academic based. My students are expected to write (mainly using inventive spelling for now), read at an F&P level of at least D, and have a good understanding of many math concepts before 1st grade. Kids who don’t sadly are held back another year

It's the same with my district and it's sad. Kids can't be kids anymore, and who knows if anyone will actually listen to us who believe it's too much.

I can manage my classroom better if I don’t respond to emails outside of office hours. This gives my mind a break and by consequence refreshes me for the next day. It also sets a boundary.

Our nurse has an email group of our states school nurses that she can bounce ideas off, or ask questions etc. Is there anything like that for secretaries? Teachers are keen to share how they handle things in their classrooms, but every school does attendance, has messages that need to be relayed thru the day, all these things going on, I just always wonder how it's handled elsewhere. I took this position two years ago and I don't like "This is just how it's always been done".

Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener.

There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.

I'm assigned to teach an 8th grade Modern Film & Literature elective F2F -- I've been teaching online with an established curriculum for the past two years, and I'm a history person-- not so much a literary guru, or modern for that matter! :)
Does anyone have suggestions, course outlines, or an online classroom/website I could review?
I have tons of 'resources' but I'm not entirely sure where to begin.
(At-risk, below grade level population)

Many thanks!

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!

Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year.
Have a wonderful school year!!
God Bless All❤️
