I’ve been given this award by Patty Rutenbar over at Second in Line. Thank you so very much!
The rules say that I have to highlight five other new bloggers and pass this award on to them. I am a follower of so many blogs. I enjoy learning so much from so many different bloggers. The blogs that I have decided to highlight are:
I am sure all my teacher friends are rushing around trying to get their lovely babies ready for “The Test”. My students will be taking their last Discovery Education Assessment this coming Thursday. We are off on Monday and Tuesday, so that only leaves me one day to review before “The Test”. I have created a review Power Point that can be used to review for a reading skills test for 5th, 6th, or 7th grade. I plan to use it to hand out tokens exchange for the correct answer. At the end of the class, students with at least 15 tokens get a piece of broccoli (candy). The students really try and pay close attention when they know broccoli is up for graps. I hope this helps in your prep time for “The Test”

A very dedicated educator has created a fabulous site for Reading Street users. Mrs. Lewis’s site has resources for grades K-6th. The site has great Power Points aligned with each story. The site also has links to Spelling City pages that are aligned with each story. The site also has links to center materials, whole-group materials, small group materials, and many printables. The resources are endless and are from many different teachers. I have used this site many many times for my classroom and it has saved me so much time.
Another great site for the classroom is Internet 4 the Classroom. The website has resources for grades K-12. The site has lesson plans, interactive websites, test prep, daily dose of internet, and teaching training. The site is free and lists on free websites (which is what we love). The resources are organized by grade, subject, and skill and is very easy to navigate.
The site also has a great free summer program. Students that have access to the internet can login to the site and practice skills over the summer. The information is the sent to their mentor (the teacher) to keep track of and to use to prepare for the next school year. I hope you enjoy!
