We are also piloting studies weekly for SS. I like it BUT feel the vocabulary and reading level is a bit tough for many 4th graders. I am supplementing with many of my own teacher created materials and things I find on the web. I also find that I need to modify the online quizzes quite a bit. You?? Would love to hear your thoughts???

Need some advice. I was asked to apply for a senior digital marketing specialist role (the lowest title I’ve applied for, looking mid-senior level). I applied and they offered me the position, but are telling me I need to start out at the regular specialist level. To me, if I interviewed for the senior title, and I can clearly do the qualifications needed since you offered me the role, I should have that title. Thoughts? Supposedly the reg. specialist role is senior in their org. structure.

A warm recognition to all teachers who have become HEROES during this time of need for our communities. You truly are HEROES! ❤️. Keep being awesome...we’re almost there.


Is there anyone on here that uses the Pearson reading series MyView. just need a little help

I’m in need of some morning meeting/ community building activities for Flipgrid or during Google Meets. Ideas?


Even though life/ teaching isn’t normal right now- we still need to provide as much “normality “ for our students as possible. What is the funniest thing that has happened while teaching during hybrid or DL ? Make us smile. 😊


Good luck with the beginning of the year you awesome 4th grade teachers!! Go get em! You are amazing, intelligent, and flexible. You CAN do this!

What reading curriculum does your district use?

For those of you doing DL- what activities have you done that have been fun and engaging?


Welcome! 12 days left of school for us. The countdown begins. What are some tricks you do to your room so it’s somewhat ready to go before school starts in the fall?


Hello...anyone can provide assistance with a 4th grade student struggling with reading. The student currently has an F in reading and the parents want to get at it early. Thanks in advance.

How are you preparing for this school year. I’m ready to work on back to school stuff!


Something new I learned. Our first week is almost over. Everything went really well. However, you definitely can’t hear students well with masks on- and you absolutely can’t hear quiet students at all with masks on. 😳😄 What did you learn? Hope you all had an amazing week.


Does any one use Wit and Wisdom reading? I am looking for PowerPoints, Slides, Reaources, etc ...


Congratulations everyone! You made it to MEA break!!😄 I hope you have a restful break...or if you’re like me- get two extra days to plan for the rest of the trimester.


What are you finding that is important to your 4th graders right now? I’m finding that just spending an extra few minutes with me one on one -sharing something they have or did during our Google Meets is important. The uninterrupted attention is what my students are craving.


Let’s hear your stories. What has been successful for you so far this year and has brought a smile to your face? What has been the biggest challenge with DL, hybrid, face to face, or teaching/ life in general?


Hey 4th Grade teachers! What are some of the online tools/platforms you used during distance learning that you really liked? We use Schoology as the main platform in our district. I also used Flipgrid and ClassDojo but I heard ClassKick was better. Anyone use this before?

Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!


Just curious to hear when everyone has their first with kids or if you have started already. In Wisconsin we start after Labor Day (September 4). Last day is June 5

Has anyone found a mask that you really like? Can you share where you got it from please?
