SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS/EARLY DISMISSAL NOTIFICATION
KSD – Channel 5
If you are scheduled to sub on a day school is canceled Julie will call you (unless you receive the schools “all-call” because you have students in the district).
Guest Teachers hear this often. Have you asked “Be Prepared for what?” My reply would be “For just about anything”.

PASSWORD: Choose 2 students to be the “contestants” and have them go to the front of the room and face their classmates. Reveal a secret word (appropriate for students’ abilities) – write it on the chalkboard or hold up a card– to everyone but the two contestants. The rest of the students raise their hands to volunteer one-word clues that might help the contestants guess the word. Contestants take turns calling on clue volunteers until one of the contestants correctly guesses the secret password. The contestant who guessed the password remains at the front of the class; the student who gave the final clue replaces the other contestant.
TIP: Choose words appropriate for your students’ abilities. Words for which they might know multiple synonyms or meaning is best.
