As teachers, we all want to promote lifelong reading. That's a given. How we DO that as teachers, grade levels, and schools tends to vary.
One of my absolute FAVORITE reading strategies to teach is Point of View. Students really begin to think deeper about literature! Understanding character is the building block to so many other skills.
See a collection of mentor texts to share with your students that I blogged about over at I Teach Third! This collection is perfect for many grade levels and sure to match the many interests within you classroom.
Hi sweet friends! I'm only a day and a half into my Thanksgiving Break, and I am LOVING this time to get refreshed! AND…..get all of my lists GOING! I've got
- Grocery lists (Low Country Boil for our alternative Thanksgiving dinner this year) and…
- My online shopping lists are going by the DAY! I'm al title addicted to Jane.com right now.
- My Back-to-School lists to squeeze in all of the academics before Benchmark Testing & have some fun along the way!
So, I was super excited to join in the FABULOUS ladies at The Primary Pack a super fun linky!
I've got some BIGGIES on my list this year!I'm really hoping to gift MYSELF with a new laptop! I've worked SUPER hard this year to help with the extras for my TWO kids in college! I've been using my school-issued Mac Air…which is a DREAM, but teachers do not have Admin rights! It is so frustrating! AND….I might have filled it up by linking up my Google Drive to it. Just maybe…..
I'm also hoping that my sweet hubs will catch the hints I've been dropping about some Hunter Boots for this winter. I may live in Alabama, but honey…it gets cold and just stays WET! Our parking lot always seems to have several inches of water. I've already had to change my shoes and wear slippers in my classroom TWICE and it's only November. Dear daughter says they're kind of heavy' heavy but…Hey! won't that my my steps on my Fitbit WORTH more?? I just love how cozy and SASSY they look!
Do you think he'll take the hints???? Any helpful advice?
The TOP two products on my list are these two beauties!I've joined a new team this year, and they really love doing a huge unit on Tall Tales! Can not WAIT! I already have Rachel Lamb's awesome unit, but I think this set will complement that one perfectly! Hope King is super talented!
My class this year is just WAY too pokey with the cutting and pasting in our math INBs this year. We just finished up the addition set of this No-Cut series by Teach Clubhouse, and it was just perfect! Now…I'm hoping to snag a sale! I'm pretty certain some CLIP ART will wind up in my final purchases, too. Oy! The addiction!
