9 Out of This World October Milestones
Her tip: “My students love putting on their detective hats and going to town on this project! They have so much fun ‘getting into character’ that they don’t even realize how much math they’re doing to solve these mysteries. I have even made my students Mystery Detective Badges to wear while they complete the project.”
His tip: “There are many sight singing books on the market. Modern technology and TpT have made it possible to offer a 21st century way to learn to teach this subject to your beginners. The PowerPoints contain 27 weeks of 10-15 minute lessons. You’ll find sight singing and rhythm examples, ‘bell ringer’ activities, assessments, and direct links to video teaching tips for each lesson as well as video links of Mr D actually teaching the lessons to his beginners. And much more. Have a great time teaching this difficult subject to your beginners! Your students will be begging to play ‘Forbidden Pattern!'”
Her tip: “Use these coping skill cards to make an idea ring to help students calm down when they’re upset. Just print, laminate, hole punch, and attach to a ring — and you’re ready to teach child-friendly calming techniques! Keep a file folder of intervention progress monitoring forms nearby so you can grab one and document interventions in a matter of seconds!”
Her tip: “This 40-page workbook gives your child a hands-on interactive learning experience. Who, What, When, Where, and Why Skills: 48 ‘WH’ Questions. ‘WH’ definitions with activity to complete. ‘WH’ Story Recall. Answer the ‘WH’ questions for each story and sequence the events of each story. Pictures with up to six questions to answer about each item (verbal or written task). This Cut & Paste ‘WH’ Workbook 1 is a must for teaching ‘WH’ skills to your child or students. It’s a wonderful workbook for any child, especially those with Autism, PDD-NOS, Asperger’s, and/or Speech Delay. The reproducible black and white pages are great for classroom or small group instruction.”
Her tip: “What do you do with students when they’re already excited about a holiday? SCIENCE! Hands-on science activities are a great way to keep kids focused during these crazy days! Keeping students engaged with hands-on science integrated into holiday activities helps rescues the day and turns it into a fun and productive month.”
Her tip: “Student engagement increases when music, movement, and games are incorporated into learning. This Adjectives Unit includes an original song, games, literacy centers, and writing prompts, which address multiple learning styles.”
Her tip: “Differentiation in your foreign language classroom is easy when you use stations!”
Try her: Social Studies Essay Writing!
Her tip: “Essay writing in Social Studies can be very difficult for students. This packet of tips, dos, and don’ts covers everything your students need to know for writing a document-based or thematic essay! I spend two to three days going over this entire packet with my students. Then I print in color, laminate each sheet, and keep it posted in my classroom for my students to view year-round!”
Her tip: “Give children every tool you can to help them succeed and they will!”
