My Heart Map. Students create a heart map in their writer's notebook as inspiration for their writing. 3 important people, 3 hobbies, 3 important places, 3 memories, and 3 important things. They will always have something to write about for a personal narrative.
Use two colors for name calling sticks. Flip the stick after you've called that student. Brilliant!
LOVE THIS! Design your own iPod touch - include 10 apps - explain each app and how it relates to the story - create a colorful iPod
VERY COOL WEBSITE. enter the dimensions of your room and the things you want to put in it... it helps you come up with ways to arrange it. Pin now, look later.
Good parent visual for parent/teacher conferences -- and for the kids!
"Myth #1: High school English teachers sit around all day reading and discussing great literature, and crafting Romeo and Juliet lesson plans. Truth #1: High school English teachers sit around all day reading Sarah, Felipe, and Nick's crappy essays. English teachers have no time to read, except in the summer. In fact, if you love reading, become a Math teacher." So true.
