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?
Looking for anyone in the same situation. Self contained classroom (gr. 3,4,5) of 11 students. 2 of the students are on grade level academics but are in my class because of severe behaviors. The 9 other students have be unable to have individual help with academics because these two students take all my time with their behaviors. I have some support but it just happens day after day. Any behavior mgmt ideas that I may have been missing?
I created a ESOL Google Classroom for my school system in 18-19. It was received with a little hesitation from lots of content area teachers and administrators.
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
Our first meet up went so well! Join us for our next one!

tomorrow I begin my first teaching job, it is first grade and I have had no time to prep. School started almost 2 weeks ago I need ideas for classroom management and math centers. Any help?
I am a special education aide in a structured self-contained classroom. Toileting and hygiene puts me at greater risk. I am symptomatic but have used up all my sick days. Is anyone’s admin showing grace in the number of paid sick days or are you docked when your sick days run out? This is why I am inclined to go to school regardless. We don’t have a union.
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
I feel so upset about this. I would be furious as a teacher if I found this out later, but also as a parent I would want to know that a kid brought a gun to my child’s school. How would you feel if your school did not warn you about a student in your classroom having a gun? Also….where the heck are these kids getting guns to begin with?
I would love to start teaching and learning outside the classroom walls. I would like to start working with middle school U.S. SS classes in other parts of the US. I'm in NJ, let me know if interested
Hey! I’m a self-contained teacher for grades K-2. This is my first year at the school I’m currently in, and apparently in the yearbook every year they have a class page solely for the handful of students in my classroom. They do this instead of putting my students in the yearbook page of the class they participate in for inclusion services. I feel like this is extremely wrong and violates some privacy laws. Do y’all have suggestions on how to bring this up with admin and the yearbook director?

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?

Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)
I am moving classrooms, and my new classroom has a bathroom. I’m looking for literature that discusses bathroom etiquette and any other suggestions you might have for using a bathroom in a class.
