Managing Multiple Classes

I teach fifth grade.
But at my school, fifth grade is departmentalized.
So I teach fifth grade STEM.
Every day I have 4 class periods.
Students rotate every 70 minutes, taking their supplies with them.
I stay in the room and teach the same content 4 times.
I love teaching science to multiple elementary classes (sort of like a middle school teacher) but there are some classroom management challenges too! Here are 6 teacher tips for managing multiple classes. #2 might be the best one!


Tech Thursday - SignUp Genius

I'm excited to be linking up with Teaching Trio for Technology Thursday this month!

I've been trying to think of which of the many great resources I wanted to share, and it has been hard to narrow it down. I finally decided to focus on something that I think would be helpful to every teacher - regardless of grade level or subject area.
Tech Tip: Use this free online tool to create sign-ups for everything from parent-teacher conferences to food donations for classroom parties to field trip volunteers. Read about how simple it can be for teachers to create an online sign-up.


Teacher Week - Favorite Subject

I'm kind of sad that the week is over and that this will be the last time I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week 2015. This challenge has really given me a chance to get back into gear. To reflect. To share. To learn about other teachers. To find some great blogs to follow.

But the day has come.
Today's topic is to share what my favorite subject is to teach and why.

Teacher Week - Sanity Savers

Day 4 of Teacher Week.
I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' to share some tips about how I survive my life as a teacher.
I really only have one tip:


Teacher Week - Classroom Tour

It's Wednesday and for today's link up with Blog Hoppin' it's time to take a tour of my classroom!
I know some of you might like scrolling through TONS of pictures, I for one worry that I'm going to bore you with another post that is just like the one on the "My Classroom" tab at the top of my blog. I hate being repetitive - probably because I spend most of my day repeating myself to fifth graders.


Teacher Week - Make Ahead Meals

Day two of Teacher Week and I'm linking up again with Blog Hoppin' to share my favorite "Make Ahead Meals".
Let's start with this.
I'm not the cook in my house.
That's my sweet husband's job. (thank goodness)
He actually enjoys cooking and experimenting with food.
And I love eating what he makes.
It's the perfect combination!
