If adults have trouble escaping their bubbles, echo chambers, and media biases, children will have an even more difficult time doing so.

I like to enforce one speaker talking at a time and raise your hand to speak at the beginning of the year. These norms help me create effiency when guiding discussions.

1. Be on time 2. Be prepared to learn 3. Be respectful 4. Ask for help when needed I then communicate exactly what my expectations are in regard to what each statement means. Example: be on time according to school policy means be in room on way to seat. Before this, i have students write down what characteristics they believe exist in a great classroom teacher. This allows me to quickly gather data about what expectations they have of me first.

I like to establish a good clean up procedure

Sponge/Do Now/OPENING activity. This should be review or preview, be graded, and happen in at least the first 5-10 minutes of class without fail. It needs to be automatic by the 2nd or 3rd week of school. Students expect it and know to come in, sit down, and look to the board, projector, wherever. This establishes the learning tone and gives an air of expectation of learning.

My favorite thing this year was hand signals. I made different hand signals for getting water or using the bathroom. It saves a lot of time.

Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉

Hey teachers! Have any of you ever used the program Transmath? It is a math program for secondary students.

I took advantage of Verizon’s Black Friday deals and got myself the new iPhone yesterday. I’m AMAZED by all the neat things it can do. One of my favorites is that you can grab text from a picture and have it read aloud. This would be so helpful for my students with vision needs and those with reading disabilities. When do we think we’ll actually see this technology in the classroom? Can’t very well put “iPhone” on a students assistive tech section of their IEP 😂
