We're very excited to announce the winners of the TeachHUB School Spirit Contest and Spa Giveaway that wrapped up yesterday.

School Spirit Contest Winner

In a real nail biter that came down to the final moments, the Roof Campers pulled out a victory in the School Spirit Contest with the Academic Super Bowl trailing just a few hundred votes behind. They both put up impressive numbers, both topping 11,000 votes. In fact, there was such a last minute rush to vote that they nearly crashed the site.

Congratulations to Daniele Clark and Spicer Elementary of Haltom City, Texas whose Roof-top sleepover fundraiser inspired the TeachHUB community to come out in droves on their behalf!

Daniele's Winning School Spirit Contest Entry: 

Announcing TeachHUB Contest Winners

Every year I take the whole 5th grade to an environmental camp. In order to take everyone I do lots of fund raisers… Last year, we had a coin contest, for every $200.00 the students raised another teacher was added to the group of who was going to spend the night on top of the school. For an additional $50.00, Rosie the Dog stayed up there too. (All the roof campers are pictured above)

Announcing TeachHUB Contest Winners

The firemen took us up on the ladder and put us there for the night. We stayed up there on a Thursday night and had to go to school the next morning. Thank goodness, that Friday was hat day… We ALL needed a little more coffee and Sonic drinks that day! But I can tell you that was an experience the students never forgot and they have asked us to do it again! You will see on the pictures we had a live web cam all night long!! (view from the roof).

Danielle and her fellow roof campers will recieve $100 to fund the extracurricular activity of their choosing. I'll follow up with details on when available.

Thanks to the other finalists and everyone who entered the School Spirit Contest!

Congrats to David Andrade and Kelly Lonergan, winners of TeachHUB's latest rounds of giveaways and contests!

David Andrade of Central High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut won the $250 Classroom Supplies Giveaway. He's using the money to replenish some much-needed science supplies for the school. On behalf of TeachHUB, happy experimenting!

TeachHUB Contest Winners Announced

After two weeks of voting, Kelly Lonergan of Rich Central High School in Olympia Fields Illinois won the coveted "Best Dressed Teacher" title with 34% of the vote!

You can see the top 5 teacher fashionistas here. Thanks to everyone who entered both contests and to our five finalists.

After Thanksgiving, we'll announce TeachHUB's Happy Holidays giveaway - a treat for ALL members. Be sure to check back for details!

Kelly's School Fashion Tips

As far as fashion tips, I am a big believer in being stylish AND comfortable when in the classroom.  A couple of things I think are really important are number one- shoes!!  Now I love stilettos a great deal, but TeachHUB Contest Winners Announcedwalking around a classroom where kids leave books and bags (not to mention feet sticking out) on the floor can be disastrous!  I think every teacher should invest in a couple of good pairs of flats.  Whether they are Nine West or Tory Burch (my personal favorite) having a good pair of flats will guarantee comfort while being on your feet ALL day long.  A good pair is worth the investment.

My favorites right now are a bit of an investment, but worth every penny. I'm actually wearing them in both pictures I submitted to TeachHUB.

My second necessity would be a few nice cardigan sweaters.

A) they go with anything

B) classroom temperatures fluctuate a ridiculous amount.

Just today it must have been 40 degrees in my classroom, but last Friday it felt like a sauna. I have a few basic cardigans (my favorite this year are the J.Crew Forever Cardigan- plus teachers with an ID get 15% off!!!) in a few different colors. That way if your cold, put on a comfy, yet very fashionable cardigan and when your cold, just put it on the back of your chair.

Congrats to David Andrade and Kelly Lonergan, winners of TeachHUB's latest rounds of giveaways and contests!

Big thanks to TeachHUB's bloggers for sharing their experiences in the classroom, thoughts and useful teaching tools with us all, especially with such busy teaching schedules themselves.

If you haven't had a chance to get to know our bloggers, now is the time. Here are my favorite posts of the year:

Classroom Tales from the Bronx

by the policy-pondering Phil Tabernacle bringing us insights from his NYC charter school

Strengthening the Weakest Link

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearWhile watching a PBS school documentary, I was struck by a question that one of principals asked her teachers, something along the lines of, “write down the name of your weakest student and what she or he specifically needs to work on to get back on track.”  

Judging Students by Their Covers

As part of an independent reading unit at our school, we have explicitly instructed students to judge books by their covers. In fact, looking at the front and then reading the back cover are steps 2 and 3 out of five when deciding what book to begin next. 

I began to wonder if subconsciously we are teaching our students to judge based on appearance by giving them this quick protocol for selecting a text. Then I started thinking about how often I do the same thing with my own classroom.

Teachers, Shut Up Already! (Testing Socratic Seminars)

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearFor years I’ve heard administrators tell me that I’m working too hard. They aren’t referring to my coming in early, staying late, or aggressively calling shotgun on committee seats. They’re talking about the way I plan and execute my high school English lessons.  
 
“Tabernacle, let them do the work. You just guide them.”
 
But they’ll miss that allusion to the King James Bible or Star Wars, Episode IV, I think to myself. They’ll misinterpret the word “wherefore!”

The Many Faces of Parent-Teacher Night

Despite being one of the two nights a year that we are contractually obligated to stay in the building after the final bell rings, I genuinely enjoy Parent Teacher Night… for the most part.

Where else can you find "Parents of the Classroom Stars," "The Hollow Wrecking Ball," "The Talker" or "The Wake-Up Call"? 

Science Under the Microscope

by our subject-specialist Paul Cancellieri who brings fresh perspective to the profession

The Spark of Teaching

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearWhat makes humans different? Being teachers and loving it!

While watching a panel discussion to promoteAlan Alda's forthcoming PBS documentary, “The Human Spark,” the moderator asked each expert to summarize what he or she felt was the single characteristic that most clearly makes humans unique.
 
My favorite answer came from the hilarious Alda.
 

Science on the Cheap

The phrase "in these current economic times" has become a bit of a cliche lately, but that doesn't change the fact that our lives as educators will be changed for some time to come.
 
As science teachers, supplies can be more expensive than in other subjects. Here are some simple ways to reduce the financial burden of teaching science.

Top 5 Worst End of the Year Gifts

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearAs this time of year rolls around, I have to admit to getting a little excited about some of the gifts that students and their families give in appreciation for a year as their science teacher. But with all things, the good comes with the bad...

 

In no particular order, and with appreciation for the effort and expense that goes into giving teacher gifts, here is my top five list of gifts that I would rather never receive again.

Jack of All Trades, Master of Science

For me, any holiday season has always brought one of the strangest phenomena related to being a Science teacher.

 

I am both perplexed and amused when it happens. Surrounded by distant relatives around Easter ham or rubbing elbows with newfound friends during a heated egg hunt, it inevitably gets out that I am a Science teacher.

The Chalk Talks

by It's Not All Flowers & Sausages-author Jennifer Scoggin with her elementary expertise and witty wisdom

Filled to the Brim 

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearDo you ever have on of those “I totally rock” moments when you step back, look around the classroom and realize that your kiddos are just fully engaged in their learning? (And then you pat yourself on the back because, most of the time, nobody else will.)

Maybe it’s my ego that’s brimming over, but I have recently had that feeling and it is addictive!

Staging the Teacher Robot Revolution

In my previous teaching life, and by that I mean in my heinous first job, I was forced to work with a scripted curriculum that made me feel more like a robot than an actual professional.

 

Let me paint a picture for you. This is how a math lesson went in my first grade classroom:

Put 'Em to Work with Classroom Jobs 

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearHopefully, at this point, your year is chugging along nicely. You and your friends have settled into your routine and you’re off! It’s time to learn!
 
So what happens when you’ve been so engrossed in your teaching that it’s suddenly five minutes before the end of the day, you have a million odds and ends to take care of and nobody has their backpack yet? (Hint: the answer is not “freak out.”)

This is the time that you truly need to rely on your little friends to help you get it all done.

No Use Crying Over Sharpened Pencils

As I get closer to the start of another school year, I feel that anxious knot in my stomach leading up to the first day back.
 
It could have been all the sugary margaritas I drank while eating bon-bons with my feet up on the coffee table catching up on the latest episode of Oprah all summer, as all we teachers do, but I think it was back-to-school anxiety.

Ed Tech Made Easy

by Cheryl Oakes who always has the latest in useful teaching tech tools and 2.0

Become an EduVideo Expert

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearHave you ever considered becoming a videographer? Well, with a Flip video camera you can shoot, edit, produce and publish all in one afternoon.

Normally, I won't endorse a product that you have to purchase, but I am making an exception with the Flip Video. This little camera is just the perfect tool for so many teaching activities that the payback, as they say in the commercial, is priceless.

Now, each of these activities could be done with a traditional camera. The Flip just makes it much easier to upload, edit and share your videos.

This Week in Rap

Rap music, you get crunk with it, right?
 
Maybe not, but many of your students know and love it. Here is a way to use their music to engage them with weekly news and current events.  
 

 

Your Personal Learning Network (PLN)

Best Teacher Blogs of the YearDo you feel isolated in your job? Are you the only one trying out new technology tools? Do not fear! I have some great suggestions for you, they are easy, free, very welcoming and supportive!
 
You can exchange ideas with other teachers right here on TeachHUB.com, on the discussion board or by becoming a member of the TeachHUB community.

Here are 3 of my other favorites:

  

Doodlebuzz: Drawing News in the Classroom

How many of you have a newspaper delivered to your school or classroom daily, weekly, monthly?

With Doodlebuzz, you can access hundreds of newspapers from around the country based on whatever curriculum or topic you want.

Now that you've had a chance to "meet" our teacher bloggers, share your favorite teacher bloggers and blog posts in the comments section! 

Big thanks to TeachHUB's bloggers for sharing their experiences in the classroom, thoughts and useful teaching tools with us all, especially with such busy teaching schedules themselves.

 

If you haven't had a chance to get to know our bloggers, now is the time. Here are my favorite posts of the year:

Share Your Favorite Teacher WebsitesAs a new feature on the site, we'd like to let teachers share their favorite websites for school, whether it be for


  • lesson plan ideas
  • learning games
  • amazing blogs
  • grant and donations sites
  • online ed tech software
  • any site you just love and think other teachers would love

A few of my favorites are:

TeacherLingo

This is an everyday stop for me to reaad the latest teacher blogs from across the net. You can upload your blog from other sites too, so get your blog on TeacherLingo and share in the fun!

Brainpop

Brainpop features animated videos on a range of topics, mostly K-8 but some higher up. There's also a teacher community with supplemental lessons and ideas on how to make the most of Animoto's videos.

They also have a ESL beta page worth checking out!

eSchoolNews 

This ed news site focuses on ed tech, with the latest developments, trends and studies in learning styles.

Animoto 

With a quick photo upload, you can have a slideshow video with titles and music in a few minutes. It's a great way to get students attention and appeal to visual learners with little effort.

“Animoto is a magically-easy way to grab attention... and create new visual contexts.”— Joyce Valenza Ph.D

Jeopardy Quiz Game 

This one I haven't used yet, but my friends are all about it. It's quiz software online, so you can fill in review questions and make your jeopardy game. You can also search previously-made games that fit your unit.

Unlike the powerpoint versions, this has sound effects, scoring and is just really fun.

Please post your favorite websites in the comments sections!

$250 Classroom Supplies Giveaway Looking for Teacher Giveaway Ideas

David Andrade of Central High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut was the winner of the Classroom Supplies Giveaway. He used the money to replenish much-needed supplies for the Science department.

Fantastic Field Trip Giveaway

Looking for Teacher Giveaway Ideas

Lisa Koski of Trillium Academy in Taylor, Michigan and her class used their winning field trip funds to visit the local apple orchard.

 
"It was quite cold and rainy, but we had a blast!  The kids learned more about the life cycle of an apple tree and products made from apples.  They also loved sampling the apple juice and donuts, of course.  Before they left the orchard, they were allowed to pick apples off the trees and pumpkins from the pumpkin patch.
 

Our field trip budget is extremely limited.  We are very appreciative of this opportunity to do some hands-on learning at the apple orchard." ~ Lisa 

As we wrap up the Holiday Lesson Plan Giveaway, I want to thank everyone who spread the word and got so many new teachers involved in the TeachHUB community.

 

Now it's time for some new, fresh fun. We love giving back to teachers with things they need, want and enjoy.

 

So the question is: what should our next giveaway be?

My New Student Blog Project

This semester, I’m trying out a new project for my writing class that could be interesting. I’m inviting my students to start a blog about anything they want (within reason) in an attempt to get them excited (or at least relaxed) about writing. Hopefully, they’ll love it and keep it going even after they finish the class.

 

 I’d love to get some feedback from anyone who’s tried out blogs in the classroom.

Since they’re adults, I luckily don’t have to worry too much about the privacy issues of your K-12 students.  

 

As with any assignment with this much freedom, this has potential to shock me by:

 - how amazingly impressive and creative students can 

 - how much of a disaster this could be, OR

 - how zero people choose to participate

 

If you’d check out the assignment and share your thoughts and/or advice, I’d really appreciate it!

 

Create Your Own Blog Project

To help you become more comfortable as a writer, I invite you to write about something you love… on your own blog. A blog is like an online journal that makes it easy to publish your own writing to the internet.

 

Topic: Anything you’re passionate about, though I will be reading it, so make sure it’s appropriate. You could write about sports, parenting, movies, your profession, or anything that you love.

 

Requirements:

·         Let me know what topic you’ve chosen before you start.

·         12 total posts of 200-500 words once a week (Must be weekly, cannot post 12 entries at the end of term.)

·         Goal of each post: Write and support an assertion.

o        An assertion is a single sentence that declares an idea that should initiate a thought or argument. These are the kind of sentences that will make up the theses of your essays.

o        Examples:

§         If you’ve chosen The Bulls as your topic, you could write about what trade options would improve their playing.

§         If your topic is movies, you could write a movie review in which you explain what makes the movie a success or a failure.

·         You must provide me the link to your blog. 

 

Getting Started:

I’d be happy to help you as you set up your blog. Here are the links to two major blog sites. Set up an account with one of them. Contact me if you need extra help!

www.blogger.com

www.tumblr.com

 

Extra Credit: You can earn up to 5% credit to your final grade.

So what’s your blog project predication? Share in the comments section!

Since we launched the TeachHUB resource site for K-12 educators last April, we’ve made a lot of big changes to **hopefully** make TeachHUB as useful, fun and teacher-friendly as possible.

 

I wanted to let you know about theses changes and ask for your help and advice as we continue trying to make TeachHUB a valuable resource for you and your fellow teachers.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

The revamped Teacher Recommendations page should make it a lot easier to find and share you favorite things.

 

You can now click through tons of the best Teacher sites with a brief description, recommendation from a teacher and a grade.

 

We’ve also added an on-site Amazon Teacher Store –

That way, you get Amazon’s low prices, but all front-page items are recommended by teachers and the categories will give you much smaller haystacks to find your needles!

-         Grade-level specific

-         Subject-specific

-         Ed Tech

-         Grade-level books

-         Teacher Organization

-         Coaching

 

Please check it out and send me your recommendations!

 

INSIDER DEALS

-         Discounted Masters programs - we’ve arranged through universities around the country that meet one-night-a-week at local schools,

-         Reduced Price on Pop Culture Lesson Plans – now only $9.95 from $29.95

-         Members-Only Deals Coming Soon: we’re also working with other education companies, authors and websites to get members exclusive deals.

 

My question to you is: what are you looking for deals on? We’ll track down your favorites and get you a discount. Just ask!

 

 

ON-SITE PD

With school and district budgets tightening, teachers have told us they aren’t being allowed to pick their own professional development days, schools won’t pay for it and sometimes, they don’t even have the budget for a sub if you pay for your own workshop.

 

This means that most professional development is moving to in-school PD, which takes the choice out of your hands and into administrators.

 

To get your voice heard, recommend topics and speakers to us AND to your administration. We post the top teacher-recommended topics on the Professional Development page. We can also help your principal find the best teacher to tackle that topic.

 

 

OLD GOODIES

We’ve still got all the TeachHUB staples –

  • daily featured article
  • latest teacher blogs
  • featured Pop Lesson Plans
  • YouTube video writing prompts

But now you find the latest on the homepage.  

 

Don’t forget to visit these fun, but sometimes forgotten features:

Share classroom advice, stories or just chat on the Discussion Board

 

CONTESTS & GIVEAWAYS

The new contests and giveaways should be rolled out next week. One hint: you may want to get out your pom-poms and spirit stick!

Please share any recommendations you have in the comments section! Thanks for visiting the site and for your help :)

Since we launched the TeachHUB resource site for K-12 educators last April, we’ve made a lot of big changes to **hopefully** make TeachHUB as useful, fun and teacher-friendly as possible.
