This is my 13th year teaching. I've had Kinder, 1st, 4th, and 6th grades. Currently, I'm teaching 4th grade in Pflugerville, Texas. I'm having a blast with technology in my classroom including my iPads and Promethean board. I hope to share some ideas here that you might walk away with. Please feel free to share some, too!
Okay....not my first Target trip ever...just my first School Shopping Trip to Target for the summer! ;) See what I found:
I have lanyards that I place my hall passes on. I'm a lil bit of a germaphobe when it comes to the restrooms and elementary age kids - EVEN MY FOURTH GRADERS. I had a girls and a boys pass, but then it got complicated if a girl had the pass and was in the restroom and a girl needed the pass to go to the office. I decided to go generic. I'm going to take apart the grade book and hole punch it into a poly binder so that I can keep my grade slips with each nine weeks.
These are my grade slips:
I cut them up and place them with each stack of papers the students turn in. Right away, I will check them off. Each student is assigned a number the first day of school, so I know #1 is Jonathan, #2 is Logan, etc. Then I put a check mark next to their name if they turned in the assignment. I always have a couple of extra copies for study hall in case someone misplaces their copy.
Next, I will put all these grade slips in a ziplock (stapled) for each of the nine weeks.
