So proud of all the Unified track athletes, and especially my Jenna! She’s touching the trophy... to the left of it with a gray sweatshirt! She participated in the long jump. She absolutely loves being a part of this team!

Yes! Probably next year I’ll switch it up and do six at a time and rotate those six every month. It’s been on my to-do list for over a year, finally wrote the grant to buy a lot of them!

Bottle caps and stickers make for easy organization for our morning rotations. Partners switch each day. Board games and cards can choose to make a group of 4, or stay in pairs. I jinxed myself today... it was loud! 😂

I am the same way! Partner work is often times a choice the kids have, and I pull one stick and they pick a partner. I tell my students that life is about learning to work with anyone and everyone. And, they can make it work for a short term assignment.

I’m still so amazed at how quickly kids come in and get actively engaged in a task! The noise level of 28 is also greatly decreased! Hands-on, collaboration, communication and fun! What a way to start their day!

I recommend reading books regarding teaching Reading. I also recommend following and her Global Read Aloud group. That will help you find current books that are being used with fifth graders. Good luck and have fun!

When the session started, stated "we want to walk toward our teachers." Now if he signs HB 1253, it's "we want to walk toward our teachers and shoot them with pellets in training." Please VETO HB 1253!

And, we want a permanent solution, not a short term fix.

Teachers need to vote for their best interests! When it come to state level, they need to back candidates that support public education. Public Education support should be their only focus. I feel many of my conservative teacher friends do not vote in their best interest.

Yes! Let’s at least open up the discussion. My teenagers report to school at 7:30. My elementary students are 9:00.

Finally started morning rotations that involve problem solving, cooperation, and creativity. Thanks to a grant, I was able to buy quite a few games. Took some time to train kids with procedures and expectations, but it’s paying off!

I am really trying to do more collaborative work. So, they learned a lot about making a plan, delegating, and staying on topic! I had to clarify and correct a few things, but overall very impressed with their slides and presentations.
