“Marching” right along — we’ve got an impressive baker’s dozen TpT Milestone Teachers to announce this week. We’re so excited about all the strides these Milestone Achievers have made and hope you’ll check out their resources and consider following them.
Something else to consider: Think about becoming a premium seller and attending the first ever TpT Conference in July. The speaker line-up and session offerings are sure to wow and inspire all who attend!
13 Magnificent March Milestone Teachers
Her tip: “Save your valuable time and print this ready-to-use main idea activity! Students infer the main idea by reviewing sets of themed picture cards in bags.”
Her tip: “Coordinate graphs are a fun sponge. Keep it fresh with seasonal themes, and use similar graphs of different levels for differentiation. This pack offers both. Bonus: Students who struggle with computation often find this type of activity engaging. It’s a nice way to draw these students into math.”
Her tip: “Using common household items: paper towel rolls, cereal boxes, etc., challenge your kids to be engineers — designing & then actually building a bridge for cute little gnomes. Aligned with the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) engineering standard for grades K – 3.”
Her tip: “Roll and Read Fluency Phrases are quick, easy, and perfect for my 1st graders to practice building their fluency! We do these in small groups, in Word Work, and I send them home as well!”
Her tip: “This product is a great way to practice inference with a variety of activities. Kids will have fun figuring out mysteries and learning at the same time.”
Her tip: “Students need lots of practice with phonics skills. I love to reinforce reading skills using hands-on activities and centers that align with various phonics patterns. Keep your students engaged in meaningful practice and save yourself valuable time using these printable activities ideal for center work, small group, or intervention. Just print and go!”
Her tip: “With all the testing, time is tight at school, so I try to integrate as much social studies into reading and writing as possible. My kids loved this unit because it gave them some voice and choice, and some real life connections with our local government! I was able to use this unit within reading to do a reader’s theatre, in writing to write informational text in our own class newspaper, in math to learn about graphing, and in social studies to dig down deep into the government. I think cross-curricular learning is a great way to make connections and it is super helpful to my EL students too!”
Her tip: “These Common Core Writing Posters will help to remind your students of the steps to follow for Narrative, Opinion, and Informative/Explanatory writing. Students benefit greatly from a print-rich environment!”
Her tip: “Help your students prepare for state testing with these three activities. My students have enjoyed making the paper folding activity over the past two years. Use the testing tips included or modify to fit the needs of your state/district. Follow up with a game of ‘Testing SMART Bingo’ and have your students review important tips and strategies in smaller groups with the ‘Test Success’ board game.”
Her tip: “You can use the entire unit as written to teach fractions to mastery, or pick and choose lessons, games, and activities to supplement your current curriculum. I chose this product because it’s my best seller and I’m using it in my Washington Heights classroom right now!”
Try her: March Reading Log and Response
Her tip: “I am constantly using my Monthly Reading Log and Response Packets. My March packet is full of responding pages for fiction and nonfiction. I use these responding pages in whole group, and in Guided Reading. It’s the perfect way to differentiate during Reader’s Workshop because students can respond to a book on their level. I can choose basic response pages for struggling learners or make it more challenging for my high flyers! I love that I have them right at my fingertips. My kiddos love filling out their reading logs and rating their books. It’s a great way for me to keep track of their independent reading!”
Try her: Life Cycles and Living Processes
Her tip: “Don’t just teach science in your science lessons — make it a part of your literacy stations! This unit is excellent for partner and group opportunities. Experiments are perfect for partner stations. I just model the stations at the beginning of the week and then they move around the room throughout the week working on the activities while I’m doing guided reading groups.”
Her tip: “My morning work packets will brighten your students’ day with an affirmation: ‘I am the energetic and bright…’ or ‘I am the highly intelligent…’ Aligned to the Common Core, each packet builds on the one that precedes it. All are seasonally themed and include a morning hints page to allow students to independently review their work, while learning other important skills. These are great to use for your morning meeting!”
