Empathy and Digital Citizenship
I can only speak for myself,
but I bet that many of us have not even thought about speaking with our
students concerning using good manners when commenting on that blog
post, or stating opinions on social media sites.  Not only do our
classes need to be educated about online etiquette, or netiquette
but they have to learn to be careful about what kind of information they share online.
 For the Love of Bookmaking
November . . . the time of year when students are starting to get antsy for Winter Break, yet it’s still not close enough. Teachers are tired, parent conference time and report cards are here, the time change has made it darker earlier. . . Bookmaking is the perfect solution for reinvigorating your students’ writing in any content area!

Our family has a reunion every year at Thanksgiving time. We are
scattered all over the country (actually all over the world) now, but
each year as many as possible try to meet up for a banquet cooked by
professional chefs (yay!) rather than by any of us.

 The value of learning about number lines
 Number lines help your students to learn skills they will need for the rest of their lives. Use these tips all year long!

Gentle Rebellion 101: A Teaching Story
By Tracy Willis of Mossy Oak Musings

 “Once upon a time, there was a fearsome dandelion fighter. Every week, he rode a 20 horsepower mower across an immaculate lawn… a lawn manicured so carefully that when the neighborhood association whipped out its Home Depot measuring tape, no matter where they measured, his grass was exactly 1 1/2 inches tall… ”

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – Layers of the Earth!

By:  The Owl Teacher

Grades 2-5

An earth science unit would never be complete without first discussing the three layers of the earth!  Most students know a thing or two about these layers.  They know the center is the core and it’s hot!  They know the crust is where the land is.  But why not see just how much they know?


If you head over to this page on my blog (found here) you will find this cute cut and paste freebie for your students!  They read each strip, then cut it out, and glue it under the correct column!  How fun is that?  Isn’t it nice to have a different activity related to the layers of the earth that is FREE!?!

Happy Teaching!

Prime Factorization Task Cards – Freebie

These task cards are great to help support students with Prime Factorization. My students always need a ton of extra practice with this skill.  Here are free task cards that I made to use this fall.





You can find these cards for free HERE!


I place task cards around my classroom, give my kids the response sheet that is provided, then they walk around the room answering the questions.  They will love it.  One thing that I’ve found is that task cards really help differentiate between high and low levels of learning.  The high students will get to answer all of the cards.  The lower students, you can take time and walk with them helping them.


Thanks for viewing!
