Imagine if you had to spend hundreds of dollars of your own money just to get your job done. That’s how much the average teacher had to spend on school supplies for their students in past years, experts said.
My friends can’t wrap their minds around the money I spend for my job.
Breaking news: Sky is blue. Cats meow. Pope Catholic.
Head Start teachers in my county got $100 bucks for the year to spend on classroom supplies. That’s not even what I spend on tissues in a year.
What about construction paper? Paint? Glue? Crayons? Markers? All that stuff they say I have to have?
It would be great to build these as a class and add to them through the year
Spent this week at a mathematical discussions PD, and I really want to make some sentence frames to put on my walls.
I’ve been researching sentence starters for Maths. If you google ‘Maths Talk 101’ there’s an interesting article on the Scholastic website and a decent number to get you started! Question stems from a book called ‘thinking’ published by ‘The ATM’ are really good for your questioning as well! :) I’m going to put together a blog post next week when I’ve figured out how I’m going to implement it in my classroom this year! :)
