I am the LS Psychologist and I tend to write down language used by teachers that pops for me. I tuck it away in my brain and pull it out when I think it might be useful for another teacher. Today I heard one teacher use the "U has a kickstand" mnemonic and I promptly told another teacher this idea as it totally fit for the problem she was describing. The original teacher over heard me and asked her peer "does your student also mix up U and N?" The student does, and she offered a great idea to keep them straight. I wonder if I could start a word wall for teachers on a bulletin board outside of my office which we could all add to? That way, students see that teachers cooperate and that teachers are life-long learners. Maybe those techniques would stick a bit more when when students see how much we appreciate teachers use of creative problem solving techniques.
