Re: 2nd grade math problem

4th grade teacher here. Obviously, I can't speak for all teachers, especially 2nd grade teachers, but it's my understanding the intent of this type of question for a 2nd grader is to figure out the...

Re: How bad is your vision? And do you wear glasses or contacts?

20/200 at the last check-up. Contacts during the day and glasses in the evening gets me to 20/20. I hate that I'm losing my close focusing ability with contacts or glasses although it gave me an...

Re: Would this rule bother you as a parent?

I teach 4th grade (9 and 10 year olds too) and I let them go if they ask. However, if they ask during a specific teaching moment, I ask if they can wait a few minutes until the important part of the...

Re: Ballistic Missile Emergency Alert Mistakenly Sent To People In Hawaii

I've seen this simulator before. It's a fascinating yet a very sobering experience to try out different known nuclear bombs, especially on your hometown. The bombs that his Nagasaki and Hiroshima are...

re: 27 dead and 30 injured in Texas church shooting [Bonus Apparel Discussion]

As I watch the various news programs report and dramatize the shooting, I can't help but think the next mass shooter is watching this coverage right now.

Re: Anyone have the Roomba iRobot?

I bought one for my Mom but it was a Monoprice version for $99 (Black Friday sale). I bought it mainly for dog hair on her hardwood floor and it works pretty good. However, it does not work well on...

Re: Looking for a simple point-and-shoot HD camera

Are you doing formal, sit-down interviews or something more like vlogs? If you're doing more formal interviews, I would highly suggest getting a camera with a mic input. Being able to hear voices is...

Re: Star Wars: Battlefront (2015)

I played a little today for the first time since the new DLC. I didn't use the DL-44 since I was playing bigger maps on Walker Assault but I did notice fewer people using the DL-44 and more people...

Re: When was the last time you used a pencil?

I use a pencil (mechanical) for taking notes all the time. I prefer them to pens because mistakes can be easily erased. I also teach 4th grade so I'm up to my neck in pencils almost every day.

Re: Lawyer advice needed regarding car accident

What a nightmare - sorry this is happening to you. I know it's too late now but I would suggest installing a dashcam on your next vehicle.

Re: Suggestions for a "mid" level point and shoot camera (under $500)

I'm seriously considering mirrorless too. The Sony A6000 is quite impressive but the lens selection isn't nearly as good as Nikon (or Canon).

Re: Small rock hit my windshield...

I got a new windshield from Safelite and they did a very good job with the installation. I was able to get OEM glass too even though a rep on the phone spent a good 10 minutes trying to explain to me...

Re: Suggestions for a "mid" level point and shoot camera (under $500)

Yeah, the lens did slow way down once zoomed out to 100mm. However, I rarely found myself shooting zoomed out that far. The great majority of the time, I was at 28mm.

Another possibility is the...

Re: Suggestions for a "mid" level point and shoot camera (under $500)

I shot with the Panasonic LX-3 for years until the Sony RX-100 came out. I initially thought the lack of 24mm wide would be a deal breaker but got it anyway since the sensor and lens quality was such...

Re: Good Notebook PC for $200-300?

For $200 to $300, you'd probably want to look for a used laptop. However, for $300, you could get a pretty good Chromebook (the Toshiba Chromebook with 1080p screen is a great choice) and just stream...

Re: Things Done In School When You Were A Kid That Wouldn't Fly Today

As an elementary teacher, I'm frequently working one on one and face to face with individual students so I don't think it will have that effect. I just have to remember to switch it off when I'm...

Yep, I wear an amplification system when I teach my fourth graders (I wear a microphone hanging around my neck and there's a speaker in the back of the room). It allows for my voice to be heard from...
