Teaching since Fall 2001 – 3rd year in 2nd grade

I am a loud person from a loud family. The immediate part of my family numbers about 50 (Sis, her family, Aunts, Uncles, 1st cousins and their kids). Controlled chaos is normal, and multitasking is normal.

 

What does this have to do with school? I have 25 computers but most classes are around 18 – 21 kids. I see no reason for that many computers to sit idle all day. I’ve told teachers – send kids that need a computer when you run out in the room. As long as they can be pretty independent, and our 3rd – 5th graders are they are fine. I got “oh I don’t want to bother you,” It would be too distracting. Finally at the 6th six weeks they are sending kids. YEA. Hopefully the lesson will stick and next year they will send kids throughout the year. For Successmaker, for research, to type, to blog , to reward kids. We have the equipment, the kids respond and learn – USE THE EQUIPMENT.
