2.  Irene Hines from New Jersey

Try her: Functional Folding Fun! Flip-Flap Books And Elementary Lapbooks!

Her tip: “Teachers have been using graphic organizers for years because they are valuable tools that help students organize and understand key concepts. Foldables are like 3-D graphic organizers! I created ‘Functional Folding Fun’ to use in my primary classroom because foldables are more interactive, and especially appeal to my kinesthetic and visual learners. With this cross-curricular unit, students are asked to organize information, compare & contrast, discuss cause & effect, make observations, etc… the possibilities for higher-level thinking and engagement are endless!”

3.  Donna Boucher from Texas is Math Coach’s Corner

Try her: Common Core: Decimals & Fractions Using Models and Manipulatives

Her tip: “When learning a new math skill, kids need to have lots of concrete, hands-on experiences to develop deep conceptual understanding. We sometimes think that doesn’t apply to the upper elementary grades, but it certainly does! This unit, geared toward 5th grade provides practice with multiple models for decimals and fractions. It also includes six pages of instructional notes to help you feel more confident teaching the material and a number of engaging whole-group and workstation activities. We all learn best when we’re having fun!”
