This February we’ve cheered more than 20 Milestone Achievers to date (and still counting) — Far out!

I’ve been sharing some fun facts through the month as well, so here’s one: The month of February can pass without a full moon. This last occurred in 1999 and will happen next in 2018. But not this year, and these next 9 Fantastic February Milestone Teachers know it because they burned the midnight oil to bring you top-notch resources.

9 Fantastic February Milestone Teachers


Science Stuff

1. From Tennessee, Amy Brown is the mind behind Science Stuff

Try her: Common Core Task Cards for Any Science Informational Text (6-12)

Her tip: “The most versatile product in my store is my set of Common Core Task Cards. These 75 task cards can be applied to any type of science informational text. They can be used with multiple grade levels and in any science subject area. I developed these with the idea that I needed something to help with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in my classroom, but I quickly realized that I could use the task cards for so much more. I now use the task cards for pre-lab write-ups, homework assignments that involve reading the textbook, current event articles, and as a way to organize and study notes.”

Our writing journals support a variety of writing styles including: expository, descriptive, narrative, creative, and beginning poetry skill practice. When our students seem to get really enthusiastic about a certain topic, we like to extend a journal entry into a more formal writing assignment that can be added to a student portfolio or displayed on a classroom bulletin board.”

7.  Julie Bochese from Florida is Common Core Kingdom

Try her: Word Problems Second Grade Common Core 2.OA.A.1, 2.NBT.B.5, 2.NBT.B.7

Her tip: “You can use this product all year to reinforce 2nd grade Common Core math standards 2.OA.A.1, 2.NBT.B.5, 2.NBT.B.7. I use the larger poster problems for students to work on with groups, then the full sheet problems for students to work on independently. Splitting the problems up into types helps reinforce the different types of story problems. The problem solving process is integrated throughout the whole packet to help students internalize how to solve problems accurately.”
