Alison from Eberopolis: Teaching Reading and Writing with Technology has a linky up that I thought was a great way to see what other teachers are using in their classrooms.
Here are the linky rules:
1. Share a product that you've made that you couldn't live without.
2. Share a product that you've purchased that you love.
3. Share something from your wish list that you're hoping to get for next year.
So, something that I made...
I created non-fiction posters to use in my classroom. We refer to these all the time. My students would constantly use them when he did non-fiction scavenger hunts. This year, we had the students create non-fiction books about a topic that they knew all about. I can say that my students are "non-fiction experts".
Something that I bought that I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE are these imagination prompts from Sarah, First Grader at Last. My students loved when I added these to the writing center. They would finish their work early just so they could pull these writing prompts out. I can't wait for Sara to make the rest of them. Like I said, I LOVED these. They were amazing!
Last, I have Rachelle, What the Teacher Wants, Common Core Checklist in my wishlist right now. We adopted the common core standards last year. This year, I feel more confident in teaching them. These checklists will be just what I need to document when I taught the standards and assess my kiddos. Love these! She has them for every grade level. Check them out if you haven't yet!
Lots of love,
