This is a great reading chart to have in any grade, including 4th - 8th grade classrooms! It is a chart that talks about goals students have for their reading and when they achieve different steps they can move up on the poster. I think it would be a great incentive in the classroom for kids to want to read more! I would probably make mine a little more colorful and creative, but I love the idea! by MOSCARDO

So...I read it because just about every 4th & 5th grader I know has read it/is reading it. And they love it...which means, more often than not, I'm going to love it too. Which I did. I might have loved it even more had I not already known how great "Wonder" is from all the rave reviews, but nonetheless, such a great book with well-written, multi-dimensional characters.

Reward/Incentive Idea~  This bucket of Dum Dums can be used to reward students for reading milestones, good citizenship, or whatever goals you set.  The twist it that some of them have a black dot on the base of the stem.  Students who select these earn a special, extra reward such as an eraser, being line leader for the whole next day, or whatever privileges you choose.  This is a great way to ramp up whatever incentive program you may already by MOSCARDO

I have purchased five of these machines to use with 4th thru 8th grade beginning sewing students. This machine has shown to be sturdy and all around easy to use with kids. I have sewn many different fabrics and used many different stitches with great success. It is very easy to wind a bobbin and thread. Over the last two years, no complaints at all. by gayle

Integrated Strategy Units in 4th & 5th Grade: Reading notebooks are a great substitute for strategy sheets for fourth and Fifth graders. This notebook allows them to record their thoughts and feelings toward the book, ask questions, consider changes, experience problems, and analyze characters. I love that it is called a reading journal and not a reading log because it makes the journal more appealing for students to express themselves. by SCmom2

Susans Free Comparing Monsters - an Activity for I Need My Monster There are a variety of great language skill building activities that can be done with any book you read in your classroom. On the way to understanding complete story elements and construction students need to be able to describe characters and settings and to compare and contrast two or more of each. I usually begin a discussion of comparing and contrasting by having students use two shirts they can see in the classroom at the time two students; anything they can visually reference and find familiar. We then apply the same skills to comparing the characters in the book. A great book for comparing and contrasting is I Need My Monster by Amanda NollandHoward McWilliam I created this comparison chart for a student of mine. I hope you find it helpful too. Just drag it to your desktop and print. Have fun and Keep on Talking! Find me at Kidz Learn Language by graciela

Making Thinking Visible with Interactive Bulletin Boards. This is a great strategy to use for inquiry based learning and works in many grades. I have tried it with first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade and fifth grade. It allowed for s student's voices to be heard and seen and increased engagement. This strategy provides opportunity for critical thinking in the elementary classroom. Great for 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade and up! by bernadette

I like my whole group clip chart, but I wonder if this would help a kid who is really struggling with behavior, to have his/her own. Or maybe a black and white copy of it that they can color in where they are at. It could have four copies of the chart too to show where they were throughout the day but breaking the day into fourths.

This is a COMPLETE mnemonic unit on eighty-four Greek and Latin roots that are in thousands of English words. By the time your students are finished with this unit, they will have memorized the meanings of these eighty-four common Greek and Latin roots. As a result, they will be able to figure out the meaning of thousands of English words. I made it about five years ago for 8th graders. Been using it ever since for a variety of grade levels. by Hasenfeffer

I also love the more practical reasons for this bottom of bed perch. It makes a great place to lounge while reading a book, watching TV, or having a midmorning snack, just add a small table and ottoman for a little vignette. One of my favorite suggestions, especially to those who have children or grandchildren is to use a sofette, at the end of the bed, which can double as a sleeping area when they are not feeling well. by marisol
