Classroom Management Strategies and other Teacher Worthy Ideas
How many #Professional Development Days have you slept through? Don’t answer that! 🙂
There’s a long list of “terrible/horrible, gruesome” days that we all hope we can live through while we’re teaching each school year. For instance, Field Trips, Days before Christmas/Winter Vacation, Last Days of School, etc.
So, what did I usually do? I usually planned these special days in my students’ eyes. What would they like to be doing those special days with me (other than staying home and sleeping).
My last few years of teaching 3rd grade included a day at a Major League Baseball game in our town. So, what did I do? A week or so before our field trip, we played Baseball Multiplication outside and with bases and home runs! They loved it! And they learned a little bit about the game of baseball, to boot!
Take a few minutes, make a glass of ice tea, sit down, and get ready to laugh so much that it hurts.
