If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I use The Letter Factory to help my students learn the alphabet. This DVD set is great because it includes a set of flashcards. I currently have two sets of flashcards. I display one set and use the other in a variety of other ways such a CVC spelling or letter identification. How do you teach the #alphabet? #notanad
Another school year has come to an end. What I’ve learned in my two decades as an educator is that at times, it is all about me. My positive or negative energy trickles down to my students. I’ve found that it’s my mindset, attitude and preparedness influences how our day, week or year will go.
For the past month, I’ve been tweaking my classroom arrangement to make it work better. One thing I did was to organize my closet spaces. My desk is now tucked into a closet that I had previously used as storage. I organized, purged and reconfigured. (Swipe to see.) Go to my Highlights to tour the space.
Summer Reading #bookstack. I’m hoping this stack goes to our #freelittlelibrary being installed this summer. #yareads #middleschoolreads
While I know many of you are on vacation, a few of us are still going. #twomoredays @astrobrights
It’s our last week of school. This is our #bookstack for the week. I tried to choose books that shared a common message; one of beauty and acceptance.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I’m a big fan of having a #lighttablefun. There is so much you can do with it. I like to have mine up against a mirror. (Swipe to see.) I love the additional #sensory experience. Most of these items are from @lakeshorlearning; including the light table.
There is something amazing about #kiddrawing. We made these “picture frames” by adhering the kid drawings using #modgepodge onto ceramic tiles. I hot glued a binder clip to the back so the tile could stand.
