My school has a fleet of iPads available.
..and no one on the schedule. Translation: no one knows what to do with them.
Nor do I, but I want. So, education: do you have ideas to share?
I’d suggest Alchemy (mixing elements like fire and water game) and the Where’s My Water/Where’s My Perry apps (solving puzzles with water). Does anyone else have any ideas?
Back to school
So, how would you introduce yourself to your new students at the beginning of the year?
Assembling a new teacher care package
Now that the gelato has arrived, I don’t have to stick close to home.
Since my BIL’s girlfriend is going to start her first teaching job in two weeks, and she has no idea what will be in her classroom, supply-wise, I thought that I’d put together a bag of useful things that she might not know yet that she needs (so meta!).
She’s going to be teaching ninth grade physical science, and she lives locally, so I don’t have to ship things anywhere, I can just deliver the goodies next time I see her.
So far my list consists of:
- Expo dry erase markers (with pretty colors, not just red, black, blue, and green)
- Sticky notes
- Chunky pink erasers
- Pencils and pens
What else should be in her new teacher care package?
Automatic pencil sharpener, mug for hot drinks, smiley face stickers, a diary/planner, staples, paperclips, pritt stick. Any other ideas?
