I’ve been spending a lot of time at Panera polishing the resources I used
throughout the year to get them ready to share with you! Today I wanted to
share my most recent resources and give you the opportunity to win them for
your classroom! To learn more about these resources, click on the links or
pictures below. 🙂
reading response letters (replacing book reports) and I was completely
overwhelmed by the amazing results! Writing back and forth, I formed a special
‘reading bond’ with my students. From these letters, I knew their likes,
dislikes, struggles, and tendencies as readers. I was able to recommend certain
books for them, help them identify their ‘just-right’ book level, and I could
encourage them to think more deeply about the text they were reading. This
resource is my favorite resource yet, and includes all the materials and tips
you need to implement reading response letters in your classroom.
graders, my teaching cohorts and I were desperate for a more equitable and
faster way to assess student writing. Students wrote at least one On-Demand
piece a week and the grading was killing us. These rubrics were developed to facilitate the
feedback process, as well as allow students to see exactly where their piece
needed tweaking and where their writing was spot-on. A companion to my On Demand Writing Prompts resource, these rubrics are
standards-based and Common Core aligned for 5th grade.
introducing or creating ‘class rules’, these “We
Believe” statements are ideals my class holds
about our classroom, our work together, and the world. Short, sweet, and easy
to remember, these phrases have tremendous power. Within the first few weeks of
school, we discuss (as a class) the implications of these statements asking
“How will my actions reflect these beliefs?” This neon set was made upon
request of some sweet followers based on my original
set that uses a white
background (saving ink) and non-neon colors.
students table numbers, as well as, a partner letter (A or B) is an easy
management tool. These editable
desk labels allow for simple material
distribution, an easy partnering tool, as well as, an effortless way to call on
groups of students. I’ve included premade labels show in the 8 colors below, as
well as, editable labels to meet the needs of your class!
