As a school teacher or administrator, you’re probably already aware of the issue of bullying in the classroom and the effects it can have on your students’ learning. You’ve also probably noticed how the issue has been highlighted in the media lately, with accounts of bullying leading to horrific consequences for victims and their families.
As a teacher or administrator, you know the importance of reading for becoming a lifelong learner. Not only does reading open your mind, but it facilitates a new way of thinking about and understanding of the world. And these are just a few reasons why reading is so important to education in the classroom.
Organization is key for any student to be successful. Instilling a sense of order in students doesn’t have to be a difficult task, and surely won’t be if you’ve started your class with a morning activity that gets your students in the mood to be there.
You know that the morning is a crucial part of your student’s day and what you do with the morning can shape heavily how your students engage throughout the rest of the school day. Morning activities for students can help them engage early on, and get their minds in a receptive, and receiving state that allows for greater learning potential.
The first day of school for teachers is quite different than the first day of school for your students. First, summer is gone. How? What? Where did it go? Well, time flies when you’re having fun, and we can only imagine just how much fun you had this summer. But that time of year is now behind us, and it’s almost the first day of school for teachers across the country. It’s time to organize for the year ahead, set up your classroom, and get your lesson plans in order.
