Teaching our students well requires teachers to find extra minutes in the day where there aren't any.
With the lack of time and resources, we as teachers must use both in the smartest ways we can.
Can we include the students in the responsibilities of managing the resources in the classroom, provide academic skill practice, AND make it engaging?
Here was my issue: It was the end of the semester and we needed to switch out the markers from our table spots and centers. Many were dried up and had caps missing. This would take me an eternity to complete on my own, but can I waste teaching time to have the students help me complete this task?
Yes, I can!
Take a peek at this video of how we practiced writing and reading our sight words AND cleaned out our marker containers. This is just one way you can make every minute count!
Thanks for watching!
