I just got brand new iPads for my classroom and need to find some apps that are appropriate for my prek students. We just went back to remote learning today. Does anyone have app suggestions?
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.
This is my Bitmoji classroom for distance learning - activities that can be done with it include 1)scavenger hunt for different websites around the room 2)finding new websites for the classroom 3)how the link to the classroom should be designed. Have fun exploring
Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.
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!
I’m student teaching and I’m completely stressed out. I’ve been in an elementary classroom as a TA, but this is way different.
I am trying to build my quiet area in my classroom. I am having a hard time finding things that I feel are appropriate for this area during this pandemic. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please and thanks!!! :)

Anyone in D.C. or Baltimore looking to connect IRL? I grew up in central MD, lived in NoVA for a while, moved out of the area to other parts of the East Coast+West Coast and am back here for now.

It saddens me that this little bowl is always the quietest one! I'll try and throw some crackers in. I've recently set up www.honestwork.org to inform workers about ethical issues their company might be contributing to and what they can do about it. Anyone here ever raised ethical concerns about their employers impact on the world, and successfully changed it?
Additional Posts in First Grade Teachers
I am wondering if anyone has tips to ensure students are on task while I do a small group. No busy work... must be ela standard driven.. my kiddos seem only on task a little- one hour daily
How do you handle it when the kids just want to gather around you and chit chat? I feel so pressured by all the things that need to get done that I have to ask them to tell me later. Ideas please!

Kerplunk, Horse Race, Connect Four-all used for whole class behavior management. I also do a house system in my classroom. 4 houses and they are divided into each. Houses gets points based on certain behavior/expectations being met/going above and beyond
Assign two students to “be the teacher” during quiet independent work time. While every student is working and you are working with a small group, your two helpers work & periodically watch the class. Most of the time they can do this directly at their seats. While working they just periodically will scan the class to see who is on task and quiet. But if the class is really struggling I announce that they are allowed to walk around periodically to determine who is the mystery student. This really has an impact and gets the class quiet rather quickly. At the end of small group work time you ask your helpers to announce who were the mystery student leaders who were working quietly and on task. The chosen students get a treasure from the teacher!
Class vs teacher points
Class dojo all the way! No consequences for dojoing down. Top 4/5 earners each week get a ticket for the weekly treasure box drawing and lunch with me the following Monday. I never display their points and I tell them discreetly during transition times when they're lined up. "I'll only tell you your points if you're standing quietly!" goes a long way!
Keep a roll of tickets on hand like you would use for a raffle. When a student is working especially hard, showcasing expectations, or going out of their way to be kind, write their name on a ticket and drop it in a bucket. Pick from the bucket for special helpers, small prizes, getting to sit in a special place, etc. It has worked really well with my kiddos.
Class Dojo and Whole Brain Teaching.
Class dojo, and rewards based on points. Another thing is brain based rules. I don't know why it's called that, but we have motion s for each rule, and if somebody is breaking a rule I will show them the motion. My other students have picked up on it, and use the motions to remind peers.
