Really tired of getting 7th graders reading at a 3rd grade level.
Not because I don’t want to teach them and help them. But because I don’t know why they have not gotten help reading before now. It gets a hell of a lot harder to get struggling readers to read as they get older.
Also, our school doesn’t have a remedial reading program.
apparently there are jobs out there where employees leave at the time their contract says and don’t do anything extra. and they don’t get called selfish for doing this. i don’t know what kind of job this is. it sounds appealing.
Hi. I'm about to start subbing English. I was wondering if you have any advice for someone who looks much younger than they are. Thanks :)
When I was a sub. And very young. I would tell kids what they were expected to accomplish, and that I would be writing the teacher a note about what I assigned and how the students worked on it. I usually let kids chat quietly while they worked unless teachers said not to. I think being very clear about your expectations is always the key to a successful class.
Guys- this year my classroom has…nothing. Nothing to make it special. I am spread very thin financially right now and cannot afford to spend my own money on classroom decor and furnishings. Over the past few years I have built up my classroom library and established reading workshop in my classroom, but I need some furniture.
All of my rugs and chairs have either broke or become disheveled. Having a warm, comforting environment is so important for Reading Workshop. Please consider donating to my Donors Choose project to help furnish my classroom to enhance the Reading Workshop experience.
I know not everybody can contribute but if anyone can, I would be so incredibly grateful. Five dollars would be an amazing donation— for real. It is so hard to make reading a habit for 7th graders— but having a special, comfortable reading space in the classroom absolutely will help make it possible!
