Schools, like the Portland middle school noted in this ABC News video, are banning hugs and other physical contact because it is interfering with students’ educational experience.
Luckily, learning opportunities are everywhere, especially in science! read more
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your super power to be? What would you use it to do?
3-5: Your Super Identity
If you were a superhero, what would you want your name to be? Explain why that name would be a perfect fit for you and your super powers. What would you wear? Choose your superhero name and draw a picture of you in your superhero outfit.

Create a new dish that you think would commemorate the holiday. Describe what it is made of and why you think Thanksgiving would be better with your dish on the table.

How did you know you wanted to be a teacher?
It started when I was in the first grade. My parents tell me that I came home from school during just the second week of first grade and told them I wanted to be a first grade teacher just like Miss Peggy. I always wanted to help students learn to read and find a love for learning just like she had done for myself and so many other lives she touched. I actually got to fulfill that dream. I am know teaching first grade at Eagleville School where Miss Peggy taught me.
Many educators might face the dilemma of skills vs. content when it comes to classroom curriculum. With strict state standards in place and limited class time, we are forced to choose between spending more time teaching a wide variety of content, or focusing on hands-on activities that teach skill.
While we must evaluate our students’ work, we also need to develop opportunities for our students to think about their work and use our corrective feedback to develop next steps for meeting the learning targets we have set. read more

Join us on the TeachHUB facebook page as we count down the 12 school days before the holiday break with a daily giveaway to win a chalkboard mug.
Teachers find themselves with five or even ten vacant minutes at the end of class, and they ask themselves, “What now?” While some may opt to allow students additional “study time” or “early homework time,” such a plan usually goes awry, and students begin chattering, antagonizing one another, and generally become disruptive in the absence of an actual purpose.
A better answer to the “dead time” issue comes in the form of Exit Slips:
To keep teachers reflecting on how well each lesson is delivered, we’re trying to implement a new policy of authentically assessing students for any lesson objective we write.
To make these days count instead of countdown, here are a few tips and tricks to keep the energy and learning alive while having some pre-holiday fun.
1. It’s pretty (esp. through the window while you’re warm and cozy next to a fire drinking cocoa).
2. Snowball fights and snowman building
3. Shoveling is great cardio.
4. Snow days!!!!
5. And, finally, seasonally sensational learning opportunities.
It is important for all students to see the power of online collaboration and to learn the rules about collaborating with others.
Why should we not make it a priority to improve our own flexibility as educators and learners at every available opportunity?
Why not capitalize on your students’ holiday spirit with these Christmas and winter holiday activities!
Entering is super easy. All you have to do to win today is “like” our 12 Days of Teaching Classroom Carol.
Choosing the right books to read with or to your students can be tricky. I’ve found several nonfiction books that provide meaningful science lessons and engage adolescent minds equally well.
The following questions and answers concern religious holidays and public education, a subject often marked by confusion and conflict. Teachers and school officials, as well as parents and students, should approach this discussion as an opportunity to work cooperatively for the sake of good education rather than at cross purposes.
They made the store look like a present, a castle and even a sweater. If you could transform your house, what would you make it look like? Draw a picture of your house “dressed up” and write what it is beneath the picture.
6-8: Modernize Traditions for the 21st Century
This is a technologically-advanced approach to a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new store. Think of other traditional ceremonies, like receiving a diploma at graduation, 4th of July fireworks celebrations, passing the Olympic torch, awarding statues at the Oscars or even a wedding. In at least two paragraphs, describe an updated version of the ceremony using technology to add some pizazz.
Here are a few ways to get the most educational value out of holiday favorites.
ओ पापी मानव! क्यों पाप किए जाता है?अपनी ही माँ को तू निर्वस्त्र किए जाता है।पेड़ काट कर तू धरती की लाज मिटाता जाता है।जिस आँचल ने तुझको पाला, उसे फाड़ता जाता है।
जे न मित्र दुःख होहिं दुखारी,तिन्हहि बिलोकत पातक भारी।निज दुःख गिरि सम रजे करि जाना,मित्रक दु:ख रज मेरु समाना।।
- शिक्षा का महत्त्व • साक्षरता अभियान • अभियान में कठिनाइयाँ • संचार माध्यमों का सहयोग
जिस शिक्षा से मिट जाए, जन मानस में फैला अंधकार
- अनुशासन का अर्थ • विद्यार्थी के जीवन में अनुशासन का महत्त्व • दोनों एक-दूसरे के पूरक
संयमशील, सुशील सदाचारी बनने का।यह सब संभव हो सकता यदि अनुशासन हो,मन में प्रेम, बड़ों का आदर, श्रद्धा का आसन हो ।।
- प्रस्तावना • मनोरंजन के साधन के रूप में • शिक्षा के माध्यम के रूप में • निष्कर्ष
चमत्कार विज्ञान जगत् का, और मनोरंजन जन साधनचारों ओर हो रहा जग में, आज दूरदर्शन का अभिनंदन
- समय की परख ० समय के सम्मान से ही सफलता • समय की पालक प्रकृति
है समय नदी की बाढ़ कि जिसमें, सब बह जाया करते हैं।है समय बड़ा तूफ़ान प्रबल, पर्वत झुक जाया करते हैं। ।
तुमको अपनी स्मित रेखा से, यह संधि पत्र लिखना होगा।।
आदत को बोओ और चरित्र की फसल काटो,चरित्र को बोओ और भाग्य की फसल काटो।
