Teachers – Our National Treasure

By Teachers.Net News Desk • May 8th, 2017
Happy Teacher Appreciation Day to you, one of our National Treasures! Thank you for the good and important work you do every day. There is too rarely adequate acknowledgement of the dedication and excellent work done by you, the educator. So, enjoy Sarah Powley's essay and be sure to share it with colleagues (and those outside the profession who need an education about what teachers do).


Happy Earth Day PRINTABLE Piggyback Song Sheet

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Apr 9th, 2017
Children celebrate the Earth’s Day with this upbeat song piggy backed on the traditional “Happy Birthday” tune. They could sing to a globe or depiction of the earth, or each might hold his or her own small inflatable globe (available from Oriental Trading Company).


PRINTABLE Earth Day Song: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (Piggyback tune)

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Apr 9th, 2017
Reducing the amount of waste and trash, reusing rather than discarding, and recycling materials in order to cut down on consumption of resources, are all integral to the Earth Day theme. The song is piggy backed on the tune “The More We Get Together.” Children could use the circular hand-around-hand gesture (the motion used when singing “This old man came rolling home,” which is also the signal used to call “traveling” in basketball) as they sing the word “recycle.”


Earth Day Piggyback Song: We’ve Got the Whole World in Our Hands

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Apr 9th, 2017
This traditional song is especially appropriate for use during Earth Day theme activities. Children can pick up individual globes to hold up while singing "We've got the whole world in our hands," or pass around an inflatable globe. (Oriental Trading Company sells small inflatable globes for a reasonable amount.) Other props might include baby dolls for the "tiny babies." Use hand gestures indicating everybody "here" and everybody "there." Note: Repeating a relatively short song is effective, especially when performing for others, providing more opportunity for participation by the performers and more prolonged entertainment for the audience. Consider inviting audience participation for a second round of singing!


Changing Students’ Perspectives of Rigor

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Jan 10th, 2017
When I began writing Rigor is NOT a Four-Letter Word, I wanted to hear what students would say, since they are the ones who are most directly impacted by the decision to increase rigor in the classroom. I asked, “How do you feel about rigor, or challenging work in school?” I received over 400 responses from students in grades two through twelve. Their replies reflect the tug-of-war of negative and positive perceptions.


Classrooms of the Future – Imagine this!

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Jan 1st, 2017
It is fun to imagine the future, especially when we hear about the latest advances in technology and learn about a possible future where trips to Mars become commonplace or cars become driverless. So with all these wondrous inventions, we might ask ourselves – what are the technological changes that will affect a classroom of the future? Here are some technology advances that might have a big impact on education.


Classroom Labels – When They’re Damaging Rather Than Helpful

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Jan 1st, 2017
In today's classroom, students bring a wide range of exceptionalities to the table. Having these well-defined categories of exceptionality will ultimately help us move towards a more inclusive teaching environment. These categories allow teachers to clearly differentiate what the individual needs of a student are and how best to cater to these needs. The more precise categories we have, the better able we will be in pinpointing what type of exceptionality the student has and what the best course of action is to help this student.
