It’s tough to write a blog for teachers in the final days of June. Some of you have been done with your 2012-2013 school year for almost a month. Some of you are looking at your last few days. Retailers are blatantly guilty of starting their back-to-school promotions. And we will not give you even a day of respite before you attend your first summer PD workshop.
So instead of asking you about the tough subjects (like last week’s inquiry about fixing education budget shortfalls), I’m going to ask you a few simpler questions. You can answer as many as you’d like. Everyone who responds gets an A+.
– How much antibacterial hand sanitizer is enough for your classroom?
–When is the right time to start talking with teachers about back-to-school?
–Grade your students’ cursive writing.
–Grade your own cursive writing.
–Do you read books mostly printed on paper or mostly on an e-reader or tablet?
–Glue sticks or classic “white liquid” glue?
–At what age should a child have his or her own smartphone?
– What’s the best name for a class pet?
Enjoy the remainder of your June!
