Using Self-Created Digital Books As Lesson Openers: Hooking Students From the get-Go
     If you read my last post, you might have noticed that I am dabbling in digital story telling (I know, I am on the late train for this one!). I have recently just created my own digital book to read to my class on the first day of school. The purpose of...

Digital Teacher Tool- Sticky Notes
           Recently I stumbled across a virtual tool that I am excited to start to use in the classroom. It is not anything complicated or difficult to use, but a tool that we teachers are already familiar with, just presented in a new way: sticky notes! Ye...

Using Essential Questions to Teach the Wee Wittle Ones
                                                         It is commonly thought that our little guys can't handle essential questions. They are too young. They are too immature. Wrong, wrong, wrong! Since taking a course in Understanding by Design I have be...

Creating a Positive Classroom Climate
      I have been interested in building a positive classroom climate since I first started teaching. My interest originally started because the school districts around me served a challenging student population. Though life would prove to take a very diffe...

First Day Read Aloud- A Digital Book About You?
    As I was making a list of read alouds that I want to be sure to read during the first week of school, I began to fantasize about a read aloud that depicted me! Okay, this sounds very egocentric, so let me explain. I wanted to read a book about my own fe...

Effective Strategies to Making the Most of the End of the School Year
     It's that time of year once again. That time when we realize we have almost made it to the finish line. That time when we begin to feel the exhaustion from a year full of learning, laughing, caring, and maybe even some crying. The time when some of us ...

Class Meetings: How I Started
      In the past I was not very consistent with how I managed my class meetings. I conducted them very irregularly. Essentially, I would conduct class meetings as issues came up. This meant that we had no real routine, day or set time that we would hold cl...

The Power of Assessments
      I am really focused on assessments as I think about this upcoming school year. The idea of assessments and how we use them has been one of interest for me for quite some time. What are assessments? For whom do they serve? How should we use them? The a...
