It’s the second time when i’ve seen your site. I can gather a lot of hard work has gone in to it. It’s actually good.

Wow, I have only been here a few minutes and I’m excited to click around more! I teach high school Spanish (this is my first year) and I’m hoping to find some good behavior management tools for older students! Things get a little difficult when you’re only 5 or 6 years older than some of your students. Thanks for sharing!

Next year our 2nd grade team will be a tri-ad when we departmentalize. This is our first year to departmentalize. I an trying to find a “conduct chart” system that will accommodate multiple classes. Does anyone have any ideas on how i can show my kids behavior in class?

Have you tried Class Dojo? That makes it pretty easy to manage multiple classes.
