Virtual Teaching Expo Question and Answer

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the Teaching Tips Expo. I had a great time sharing with you several ways to make learning fun. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below. I'd love to hear from you.

The other speakers that are presenting today are phenomenal, and I know you'll learn a lot of awesome ideas from them. If you haven't grabbed your expo. ticket yet, you still have time to purchase one and receive $50.00 worth of items in the virtual goodie bag. (Expires at midnight Nov. 12)

I'm still a little embarrassed from my webcam's microphone magnifying my s's by like 100 percent! Sorry about that. I really do talk normal. I promise.

Super ideas Tamara, thank you!! I teach a second and third grade loop and am currently in the third grade year with the same students I started with at the beginning of second. I have been feeling like I am hitting "that wall" with my students and perhaps they are hitting it as well because I feel as though we are making little progress lately. It is so easy with all the pressures of curriculum, standards, schedules, etc. to lose track of the fun piece. I am excited to implement some of your ideas next week. Thanks again!

PS. I thought you sounded great! Not a huge emphasis on the S's here. :)

Thank you Mrs. Lavoie for your comment. So glad I could offer you some ideas. I have hit that wall almost every single school year so I needed to learn how to get over it (or even around it). ☺

You sounded just fine Tamara!

Thanks for all the great ideas. I feel that I'll be soooo much better prepared when I finally get my own classroom.

And now I know what to do in case I see a wall starting to form :)

YES! The fun component is so huge and I'm so thankful to have your tips as ways to keep me refreshed. I can definitely do the things you mentioned all year long and my kinder boys with lots of energy will greatly benefit from them (right along with everyone else). Thanks for the great tips!

Great presentation girl! I try to incorporate games, but I've been a bit overwhelmed. However, now you've inspired me and I'm planning on making some more games for my class. Love the chess info! I would love for my kiddos to learn chess!

Awesome Jennifer!

And your presentation was wonderful! Thank you for sharing your solutions on how to make RTI work for teachers who already feel overwhelmed with so many demands.
