My daughter has just started teaching and year 3/4 class and I am feeling very proud !
So my eye picks out anything with new teacher or anything that could be useful to her.
Here is one such site , entitled 5 Things to Do on Your first Day of Class. It has suggestions for how to
- Greet Students
- Set Rules
- Team Building
- Grab Your Students’ Attention
- Assess Prior Knowledge
Maybe you could use some of the suggestions during the year?
Following on from my last post, passing on what I have learnt from Kelly Rexine’s blog, he posted about some Maths apps that I thought could be useful as our school is getting more and more into ipads.
Although if they all cost to buy, the apps will need to be very good to purchase and install on multiple devices!!
