Summer Update

Well I think it's safe to say that our personal goal of updating our blog more regularly has failed! However, we are ready to get back into the swing of blogging our new ideas and creations we have been working on while on our leave of absence in the blogging world!

First up... Our new Interactive Root Scrap Book....

We are pretty impressed with how this turned out and really excited to put it to use in the classroom this fall! We focused on 50 common prefixes, suffixes, and roots.  Not only did we focus on learning the meanings of these important word parts but we added a TWIST where there is a different interactive activity to complete for each of the roots. These activities range from creating timelines in CHRONological order, storyline perSPECTives, PSYCHic crystal balls, and many more!

Next...MATH Activities...

Even though we are the Reading Olympians, we have decided to start creating some math activities recently.  This year I have attended many Common Core math professional developments that have focused on teaching and understanding mathematical processes and strategies. It sure did make an impact on my instruction throughout the year with my students' problem solving and higher level thinking skills! In these activities we focused on using different addition and subtraction strategies other an the traditional algorithm.  You can check them out here...


Coming... An Updated!!

We promise to be back sooner rather than later this time!  We have two new items that we have been working on the last couple of weeks!
