I can’t believe the school year is almost over. I always find this time of year a little stressful as I try to accomplish all that I want with my current class at the same time my brain is racing with ideas to try for next year. Part of this process for me is to reflect on my current classroom set up: what worked, what needs to be tweaked and what ...

I love using anchor charts in my classroom! They are a great way to introduce a new topic or document student learning. To keep my students engaged while creating anchor charts, I make them interactive by using sticky-notes. While creating an anchor chart, I pass-out sticky-notes for students to write a response on. This way, students aren't sit...

  Did you know that you can create pins that don’t have links to websites?  We all know that we can use Pinterest to preserve great ideas that we find online, but how about using Pinterest to make a “filing cabinet” of the great ideas and projects YOU have had?  This would make it easy to come back to your ideas from year to year, as well as to...

Hey teacher friends!  Here's to hoping your testing season is wrapping up now and that you are looking toward the sun (and possibly) summer sand!  As the year is starting to wind down, I thought I would share a pretty cool resource called TikaTok!     TikaTok allows teachers to download digital templates that their students can then turn into ...

  Hello Organized Classroom Readers,   It is Kristy from the 2 Peas and a Dog blog. One of the things I started this year was using Twitter to communicate with students and parents about homework and upcoming assignments, tests and events.   Here are some great ways to use Twitter in your classroom:   The great thing about Twitter is you...

  Each year a student is in school, they should learn about 3,000 new words. I know this sounds like a huge number, but this does take into account words such as drive, driven, drove. Research indicates that by the time a student is in the fourth grade, they should be introduced to the 20 most used prefixes in the words they will encounter th...
