What is your max class size for the year? Is that number based on a virtual or in person classroom?

Don’t know yet. We know kids will be split M-T will be last names A-L. TH-F will be last names M-Z. My largest class at this time is 28 kids but that could change. In the past, the rosters have been equally balanced between last names (have a class with no surnames A-E but have a ton of S names). The district only expects 10% to stay home. So ideally it would be about 13 but I envision have classes of 5 to start the week and 20 to end the week.

*disclaimer* I work in a really small district! We’re adding a new section to every grade (except mine 4th because it’s a small class) so that we can have between 11-12 kids in a classroom. Our absolute max allowed with the size of our classrooms is 14. My room is integrated and has 13 next year but we have myself my co teacher and a 1-1 aid. It’s not clear if teachers should be counted in that 14. The other 2 sections are 16 and 15 so I’m wondering how this will all work 🤷‍♀️. Everyone in the school with a teaching degree basically has been moved to a classroom teaching position. Waiting for that meeting where admin talks to teachers to ask my 67 and counting questions lol!

Also we’re going back in person 4 days and 1 day will be virtual for a deep clean!

A max of 16 students M-F for elementary

MWFTR alternating days for ms and Hs

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?

Daycare has given my kiddo a nickname, that has now stuck 3 years later. I had politely asked them to use his real name 2 years ago when I first noticed it. Walked into the classroom today and heard 3 different kids call him by the nickname. What do I do here? Say nothing and hope it stops naturally? Say something again? Do I sound crazy being annoyed by this?

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.
