How do you deal with grammar? I'm looking at getting back in the classroom and I don't want to just do workbooks, but I don't know how else to handle it. I'll have lots of technology access if that helps.

girlwithalessonplan:

There are games you can do, such as grammarbytes.com as practice to supplement any drill down.

But, to me, grammar is like the “math” portion of ELA.  You have to practice it for them to get it.  And then the theoretical support is writing more.  

Another easy thing to do is have daily grammar as a bell ringer.  Kids come in, see an explanation and a couple of problems to do while you do attendance, and you go over it.  It shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.  

The US budget is like a 1st grader playing Oregon Trail. Spend all the money on ammunition so you can shoot at stuff, then wonder why your wagon is falling apart and everyone is dying of dysentery.

Principals in U.S. Are More Likely to Consider Their Students Poor

The phrase “soft bigotry of low expectations” is inevitably associated with George W. Bush, who used it frequently. But whatever your politics, the idea has undeniable merit: If schools don’t expect much from their students, the students are not likely to accomplish much.
A new international study, set to be released Tuesday, argues that the United States has an expectation problem.
