Also….
We are linking up to give YOU some FREEBIES
for Back to School!

School is back in session.
Life gets back into ROUTINES.
I kinda like that. Routines.
WE ARE BACK!
Every year I try to “BETTER MYSELF” in my teaching.
This is my 27th year of teaching GRADE 1!!!
( My kiddos ask me WHY I never graduated…  HAHAHA)
And  so I try to keep up on the newest & brightest teaching trends
WITHOUT  going OVERBOARD!
This year I have impelemented 5  amazing new “tricks” to my teacher “magic bag!”

Write YOUR name!
This sounds EASY enough.
BUT…We ALL know it isn’t!
THEY FORGET…A LOT!
SO…..
Each time we do a paper, a project, ANYTHING together…
I say..” Here is where I write my name. DON’T WRITE MY NAME…”
and they chime back (LOUD)…
“WRITE MY NAME!”
So far…so good!
Call Backs working GREAT!
Entering the classroom.
I greet them on the playground line where we line up.
( 5 minutes BEFORE the bell rings..BEST 5 minutes EVER!)
We smile, chat a little, and then…
EVERYONE get out your homework folder and Read at Home folder (Books)
HW in your left hand…RAH in your right hand!
And..we walk to the door.
As they walk in…
Homework in the HW basket, RAH in the RAH basket, Backpacks on the shelf!
(No more getting into backpacks at the door!)
No one ON THE GROUND looking for something as the whole class walks in!
We put stuff away & sit down to work.
ONE MINUTE OR LESS!
“HALLELUJAH”
I hear trumpets! 🙂
Ipads…we are a 1:1 classroom.
I AM THANKFUL!
BUT…
25 first graders getting out, putting away, closing apps..
ICK!
2 GREAT ideas…
first …take their picture and use it as their desktop/wallpaper!
No more guessing WHOSE  ipad is it??
AND…
I choose  an extra 2 HELPERS each day.
TECH TEACHERS
Their job is to “pick a helper” ( now there are 4 )
so pass out, collect, stack up, plug into the charging cart, help with apps…each day.
( Sometimes I have to “FUDGE” at least two f them..to make sure there is at least one who can help with the apps.)
They LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
ME too!
BRAG  TAGS!
I love them.
I hate them.
I know…Love – Hate relationship!
LOVE the idea. Made ALL of them.
BUT…my kiddos could NOT open the chain necklaces
BY THEMSELVES!
My plan for independance…just add 25 MORE things for ME to do each day!
NO WAY!
I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THAT!
SO…
I went to rings!
They can open/close them.
Brag Tags fit.
ALL  GOOD…
BUT…
They fill up too fast!
NO WAY will they make it to the end of the year!
SOOOOO…
On the last day of each MONTH ( one so far )…
We take ALL of their BRAG TAGS and beads
OFF of their ring!
WHAT????
Yep. And then I gave them a string.
Good old white string ( NOT YARN ).
They restring their Brag Tags & beads onto their string.
Voila!  Necklaces! To wear home!
AND THEY LOVE THEM!
MORE! MORE! MORE!
They are working like a charm!
LOVE it!
Parent Communication.
I am NOT a fan of teachers using their phones IN CLASS!
It is NOT OK to call a parent while you are teaching.
(We are NOT here to embarass kids, to point them out while talking on the phone, texting, etc)
That is to done at recess, lunch, after school, etc.
So …I have started using
REMIND
on my phone to communicate with parents.
(Go to the app store & download it today! FREE!)
Send a note to your parents
telling them how to sign up.
It will tell you on the app.
You can text parents, one or ALL, without them seeing YOUR phone # AND
You can’t see theirs.
Total privacy!
I send out QUICK texts about minimum days, library books, book orders,etc.
AND
I send out classroom pictures to those families who have joined!
(Keep a list handy!)
After my first picture…I got 4 more families to join who heard about it from the other families!
Not all will join. But much better than sending home a bunch of notes and
HOPING someone reads them!
Loving it so far!
OK..LONG  BTS  POST…sorry.
Here’s a FREEBIE for hanging in there!
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
