Teacher Toolbox Linky

Hello, Friends!

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,
