Ever heard of Reading Rockets? It is a website committed to helping young and struggling readers build fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills.
I recently came across an article on their website with 103 'things' to do before, during, or after reading a book. The 'things' are a variety of creation, singing, & acting, with a dash of imagination mixed in. I can easily see how these could be great activities to put in centers or send home for parents to do with their children. I can already imagine the cute little cards that all of you creative teachers will make with these. :)
We introduced you guys to a lot of stuff today including Kids Search/Searchasaurus, Blabberize.com, MakeBeliefsComix.com, and BigHugeLabs.com. I hope it was beneficial to you all! It was an honor to be invited again by Ms. Roberts!I've attached handouts for our topics to this post. Hopefully they will help you as you eventually get placed in classrooms.
As you get back into the groove of things this school year, don't forget about setting up your students on SumDog. That's assuming that they haven't asked you twenty times already on when they can start! :)
To help you out, SumDog has created some VERY helpful videos that walk you through what to do. The topics include:
reset your password
invite other teachers
manage students and classes at the start of the school year ( <-----GREAT ONE TO WATCH!!!!)
set skills for your students
Check these out (from home) to see what you can do to have you class practicing those math skills in no time!
