Much Too Much To Do....

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Resources for Teachers at the End of the School Year on TeachersPayTeachers.
Stress? What Strrrrrreeeesssss?!

I want to tell you a quick story, and you might think it is a work of fiction, but every word of it is true..... when I first started teaching in 1989, teachers were given four to five days AFTER the students' last day to pack up their classroom, do their cum folders, close out their IEPs, book and furniture inventory, report cards, plan together for summer school or next year, group students by classes for the following year .... 

SERIOUSLY, nothing was removed from the walls UNTIL THE STUDENTS LEFT.... imagine that, you didn't have to pack up and possibly move your classroom while school was still in session, you didn't have to do report cards two weeks before the last day, you didn't have to close out all your student files a month in advance ..... I know, CRAZY right?! We actually were able to TEACH until the end of the school year, throw a party and then hug & kiss them good bye on the last day!

If your school district is like my last one, everything has to be done before the last day of school because you have to turn your keys in and administrators have to do a walk of your room and your paperwork needs to be turned in and and and and and...the list goes on. It is not your admins' fault, it is the school board that thinks, "Let the teachers work on their own time, during nights and weekends, to do all those tasks. Teachers don't need PAID days after school is over...." Sadly, free labor, is free labor and usually it is the students that suffer the most. As a mom, this trend saddens me, but as a teacher, it is real life and things need to get finished during student contact hours.

I really enjoy creating resources that are engaging, yet still fun for a primary student. Lately, I've created many Color Your Answers with a Spring and a Summer theme. Depending on your grade level and your students' abilities, you can give them a page a day or bind them into a mini-book that they can complete individually as they have extra time. These color by code style pages are excellent at keeping your students engaged more than putting another video on to watch. There is nothing better than having your principal walk in and everyone is reviewing math until the very end! I hope these resources give you some time to get all your end of the year chores finished in time.

Tuesday Teacher Tips: Reminding Students About Pull Out Classes


Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Tuesday Teacher Tips: Reminding Students About Pull Out Classes and a Free Printable.
Tuesday Teacher Tips: Pull Out Classes
Every Tuesday Michelle, from Teach 123, and I will have a new installment of my favorite post, Tuesday Teacher Tips!
This week's tip is about helping the students in your classroom that leave during the day for some sort of pull out class.
There is nothing crazier than the first week, or even the first month of school. The larger your class, the harder it is to remember where everyone needs to be and at what time and what day. Yes, many schools follow a "push-in" method where the Special Education Teacher comes to the classroom, but there are still Speech classes, Gifted classes, OTPT, medicine after lunch, and the list goes on and on. 
While it is your responsibility to make sure every student is where they need to be, it is also your responsibility to TEACH! 
What's a teacher to do?
One of my favorite tips ever is to put a little personalized clock on the student's desk who have to leave. You don't need to worry about privacy and embarrassing the student, the other students know that child leaves every Tuesday and Thursday for Speech classes at 1:00! They all love to know each others' business and if you are having a year of Busy Bodies, give them all a clock. Then ask each child what time do they want their personalized clock to show. Recess? Lunch? Dismissal? Then everyone has their own clock and you can tell the little Busy Bodies, "You have your own clock, mind your own business!" :) Sweetly, of course! You can even have a Room Mom or Parent Volunteer come help you one day. It takes a little bit of effort up front, but it will pay off the entire year when your students don't miss their pull out classes, while you are busy teaching small groups, etc.
