Increasing this awareness, will also support students’ ability to manage certain reactions. These activities are intended for students in 4th through 6th grade, but could be used for grades above or below with some modifications. by julie

I wanted leveled readers but did not want to pay for them.  I printed a ton of leveled books from reading a-z.com, had my assistants color them, laminate them, and put them together.  I then lined each level with different color/types of duct tape and stored two levels per basket which is why there are two types of duct tape on them....poor man's leveled readers! by ginger

It's a funny thing being a veteran blogger - I get asked almost daily how to start a website. I honestly love helping people get started and am truly fascinated at the potential that is available to each an every one of us via a simple little website/blog. In a lot of ways the playing field has been leveled with big media companies and bloggers. You and I now have the ability to reach just as many (if not more) readers than big media sites with our humble little blogs.... by graciela

In our unit about plants, this pumpkin investigation could be utilized to teach students how to look at different types of plants. They would describe the outside, count how many lines there are, describe the inside, and count how many seeds there are. It would be a fun way to get students involved in plant observations. by ophelia

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

Using Mentor Texts to Empower Student Authors. Like many schools, we are now using the Danielson Framework for Teaching to advance teaching and learning at my school. Grounded in a constructivist approach, we are striving for high levels of intellectual engagement among our students based on student-initiated inquiry. This is a mouthful of Danielson-speak (specifically addressing 3c, if you were wondering,) for a teacher-as-facilitator, student-centered classroom. by mari
