Virtual Teaching Expo Question and Answer

 Thanks so much for visiting The Schroeder Page from
The Teaching Blog Expo!
Welcome!  I hope you found many exciting tips and ideas to add to your daily teaching from the presenters today!  I was so very honored to be involved with the EXPO.  If you have questions about my presentation on Beyond Flipping Cards or anything on The Schroeder Page feel free to post below. I would be happy to guide you on your journey in creating independent learners.  Remember...if you are just finding this you still can sign up by clicking the image below.


I also wanted to let you know where to get the sign about children making memories!  I finally found it again:)  http://www.etsy.com/listing/57831022/please-excuse-the-mess-the-children-are
I did want to mention that the stop signs I use in my classroom are not my original idea.  I can't remember what site I found them on several years ago but they work beautifully.  If they are yours...please let me know so that I can be sure to give you credit! 
Click the Stop Sign Below to download a set for yourself!

Below I am posting my behavior reflection sheet that I send home to parents when a student highlights his/her name in our OOPS Book.  I also email them if a student just can't seem to get it home.  Remember this is another way to keep documentation on behaviors.    Enjoy the free download!


Be sure that you grab my Behavior Incentive Smartboard lesson from the Expo's Goodie Bag to use in class while you begin to train your students to work as a team.  There are wonderful goals and rewards for your class to work towards on each page of the file. Remember you will need to Download Smart Notebook on your computer to use it.  You don't need to have a smartboard.  Your students can simply move the pieces on a computer.

  1. I loved your video and I got a lot of good ideas out of it. Now I can't wait until I get my own classroom :)

    One question I had was that after the two weeks the kids had the jobs and then trained their replacements, how long did those kiddos have the job? Do they switch every week?

    I also do something like Project Clean Up but call it Mystery Clean Up :)

    And I love, love, Learn Like a Champion.

    Thanks!

  2. So powerful and empowering for both me and my kinders! Do you find that your students are often more focused on the positive as a result of this type of philosophy? Thanks Monica!

  4. Love your presentation! When you said you zip tie your desks I shouted "That's genius!" When you want to change up where students sit do the take everything out of their desk?

    Also loved the Learn Like a Champion sign. I'm a Notre Dame fan so I REALLY love it!
