4 Great Teaching Inspiration Posters for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning
This is so true. It also reminds me of two of my favorite quotes: 1. "Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care." ~Theodore Roosevelt, and 2. "If you have a child's heart, you have his head." ~Flip Flippen, creator of the Capturing Kids' Hearts program

I love Standardized Tests! Said no teacher ever. This is so true! Although I believe that you must teach what's on standardized test you should make it a point that what you are teaching is important. As a teacher, you should make the content you are teaching relatable to your students' lives.

Teachers Bill of rights: Just as the students have rights, teachers also have certain rights. As a future educator, I have the right to a safe and welcoming environment, be equipped with the tools and materials needed to teach, support from my school corporation, fair and accurate evaluations, ect. These rights allow me to be the best teacher I can be for my students and give them the education they deserve.
The Teacher Bill of Rights :) Amen
The Teacher Bill of Rights :) I can honestly say that where I teach the follow and abide by many of the items on this bill of rights!

Why Can't I Skip My 20 Minutes of Reading Tonight? Use in Back to School slide show for parents
20 minutes of reading a night: Good visual for parents, teachers, and the kids!
Great resources for Language Arts
yet sadly, many of students who read more than 20 minutes per day will not report that reading in their reading log because the children of those parents with a functional literacy level of the T.V. Guide will bully them for it. quit teaching your kids to bully intelligent people, be literate by choice & by example.

Teaching Blog Addict: I'm Done Jar- TBA's most popular post! This is great! Especially if I don't have a space for a fast finishers bulletin board!
I like this idea! -Jar with Popsicle sticks of educational activities for when they are done. I like it with the "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit" rule. ... I currently have a chart with activities and my students can pick one to do, but this has the problem of students who can't decide what to do and are still wasting time.

Cute idea. Quiet critters come out only when it's quiet. Put them on students' desks when they're quiet and working hard.
Wonder if these work? Quiet critters come out only when it's quiet. Love it! I can really see kids working hard to have one sit on their desk.

Ask each child to bring in a small framed family photo...love it! What a fun way to make a classroom feel homey! :) gives students a sense of responsibilities to their parents while at school too!

Student Family Photos- have them bring in a framed photo at the beginning of the year and display them in your classroom . What a sweet way to personalize your room!
Each student brings in a framed family photo... Classroom Community!
Family photos that kids bring in to school. One of the 1st grade classes @ Suwannee had the frames on the kids' desks. I love it! We have our family photos on our work desks, why not the students' desks?
This website has some unique classroom ideas including this one where students bring in a family/friend framed photo at the beginning of the year so they have a little piece of home with them while they are at school. This is especially great for younger students who might be homesick for their first year of school.
Ask each child to bring in a small framed family photo. I have done this before, and it's very meaningful for kids to share their family pictures with the class.

FOR GOAL SETTING! They wrote their hopes and dreams in balloons and attached a picture of themselves soaring with them. Make "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board!
This teachers theme was "Carried away with excitement for the new school year." They wrote their hopes and dreams in balloons and attached a picture of them soaring with them. Take pic of student with digi cam
Carried Away--This teacher used these as informal assessments in a lesson about prefixes and suffixes. However, I like the idea (inspired by another Pinner) of students writing their hopes and dreams in balloons and attaching a picture of themselves soaring with them. Another Pinner had the idea to create an "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board with them! Overall a fun, engaging way to get students to really think about their learning goals for the future!

food web---- food chain Science Notebooking
child pick an animal at the top of the food chain and create a food chain inside its belly. In hindsight she probably didn't need to have the tiger represented (since it was already represented by the drawing). This would fall under 5th grade standards here in South Carolina and I am thinking of how it could be modified to represent fossil fuels in our energy unit.
