Sometimes teachers just need simple solutions to keep kids paying attention.

Teaching Tip: Keeping Students Engaged

“How do you keep students engaged during reading and math lessons?” I have an old school way of doing this, which may or may not work in your classroom, but it’s always worked for me in my 3rd grade classroom in the past.

Have you ever tried cooperative learning and it was mass chaos in the classroom? But, I worked on a fix and it made all the difference for me.

Cooperative Learning Group Work Roles Made Easier

I don’t know about you, but when I first started to learn about cooperative learning and group projects, I was pumped at the possibilities and learning that could happen! So I went to school the next day so excited, put my class of third graders in groups, and gave them a project. I was enthralled with what I thought I would see happening right before my very own eyes! Yea…then reality happened.

I have a quick video that shows you an idea that I adapted from one I saw being used during cafeteria duty. Just change it up a bit, and use the same idea in your classroom when having small group work time!

Student Slang for Teachers

I’m sitting minding my own business when my son comes in the door from the school bus and says, “Get wrecked.” I immediately thought he meant that the bus had gotten into a collision with something else and panicked. I suddenly realized that I am out of the running for the coolest mom in the world. I’m starting to hear lots of words and phrases I am not able to place. I figured if I am feeling that way, perhaps others are too and maybe teachers need to be schooled as well.

"I teach a split grade and I usually teach my students for 2-3 years in a row. This makes coming up with new art ideas a little tricky, especially around the holidays.  Thanks to Pinterest I am able to find new ideas (and pin them!!) but I needed a way to organize and keep track of the art lessons I taught, when I taught it them and what I used."
