Thanks for your suggestions to join other groups. I'm glad that I have found a group of teachers that share the same idea of what a class should be like. I'll be looking forward to share ideas with you.
Thanks for the warm welcome! I look forward to exploring MC Pop more as I try to wrap my head around being a 6th grade teacher - thanks for the group suggestions. I hope your surgery and recovery go well.
Thanks for your response. I'm a newbie at this. I have a lot of resources I'd love to share-I'm just not sure where. I have compiled a list of over 500 websites for 5th grade Science teachers. I have aligned them with the Ohio Content standards but they are also grouped by topic. I have favorites that I use on the smartboard, to collect lesson plans and websites for students. I have them on a Word document and would be willing to email them to anyone who's interested. Thanks again.
My husband, sports fan and literary fan, just told me about this site run by Bill Simmons of ESPN that features Dave Eggers of McSweeneys. Thought it might be something MC Poppers would like: http://www.grantland.com/.
Hi Ryan, I just read the post about STEAM. While I'm not a math or science teacher I do teach literature and art. I have taught a middle school elective class called GeoArt for those who'd like to create art but don't consider themselves "artistic".
