You Oughta Know Blog Hop. Ideas every teacher "oughta" know!
I'm participating in my first blog hop with Mrs. Mcclain! When I taught writing one thing that DROVE ME CRAZY, seriously crazy, was when my students weren't writing (go figure). We've all been there... you know that place right after completing an awarding winning mini-lesson, giving explicit directions, and checking for understanding. You think everyone is ready, but when you say go, a few students just sit.You oughta know that some colorful pencil toppers could be the end to that. There are three different toppers: Green = I am good to go Yellow = I am okay for now, but could use a check-in soon Red = I need help The key to using these is the level of ownership (and competition) you put on the students. After checking for understanding and letting them know who I would be be conferring with, I would do a final sweep for questions and then say "Green Goes Up," which is the cue that everyone in the class should be using a pencil with a green topper. Before saying "Write!" I build a little excitement by noting "Last period had all green and yellow for the first 13 minutes, but I believe this class can go fifteen minutes, WRITE!" Students know that the moment I say "write" the clock is running. My middle schoolers loved competition! When I worked with a student or small group I could always look up and know where my writers were, which was really important to me. The toppers are big enough so that teachers can quickly scan around and see every pencil. The goal is to keep pencils moving throughout independent writing time! #greenismydream The red pencil topper has a little checklist of things to do while waiting for help, which should reflect whatever you want students to do. In my writing class I emphasized planting a new seed in their Writer's Notebook, silently reading, reviewing their notes, and making sure they have a specific question/thought. If students were reading when I arrived, I would spend two minutes talking about what they read because my students sometimes liked to fake read (that's a post for another day). Lastly, I stopped enabling kids from having questions or comments like "What should I write" or "I'm stuck." Students had to be precise with what was holding them back. I know that some teachers like to do an "Ask 3 Before Me," but during writing class I want students writing and not disturbing others. USAGE TIP: Laminate them! Well those are my two cents... Hope you liked it! An InLinkz Link-up
￼ This has got to be one of my favourite link-ups ever!!! I'm linking up with Jasmine over at Buzzing with Mrs McClain again and a whole heap of other amazing teacher-bloggers. This month I'm sharing an idea with you that I can totally, hands on my heart say, wasn't mine! I'm pretty sure I saw the idea of having a Mystery Reader on another teacher-bloggers Instagram and loved it! If you need to inspire a spark of interest in your children when it comes to reading or if you, like me, have a class of kiddies who are desperate to read at story time then a mystery reader is for you! It is such a simple concept- 1. Ask who would like the chance to be a Mystery Reader- it is an optional, fun experience 2. Put names into a pot/ bag/ hat and draw one out each day 3. Secretly let the child know that they will be the following day's Mystery Reader- I put a note inside their home reading diary so they don't find out until they are at home and can share the fun with their family (obviously I know the children who won't get this experience at home so I pull them aside and let them know before they go home) 4. Set aside a time every day where the children close their eyes and the Mystery Reader can then come up to the reading chair ready to read 5. The children then open their eyes with gasps of 'ooo, ahhh, I thought it would be you!' And the reading begins! THAT IS ALL! My class love it- they choose a book from home or our class which they feel comfortable reading and get sooooo excited for each other that you could hear a pin drop whilst the story is being told! The rules are simple- 1. If you don't want to be one then you don't have to be 2. Keep it a secret Our class love it and I'm sure yours will too! we've even had adults from other classes and the school caretaker be one! Mystery Reader is most certainly one of the best teacher shares I have spotted and I couldn't resist sharing it with you today! An InLinkz Link-up
Writing is my favorite subject to teach, and writing workshop is my favorite program. I have 2 books I use to get me started each year. They're my "bibles" of writing workshop for early elementary grades. I always begin by watching Eric Carle read The Very Hungry Caterpillar on his website, then watch his interview about using big, bold colors in his books. We look at pictures of his studio, and link that to our classroom tools we can all use to be authors, just like Eric Carle. My kiddos love the fact that he began writing when he was 5! I've taught this lesson with 1st-5th graders, and they all love it! Different age groups take something different away from the videos, so they're well worth the effort, no matter what age you work with. I make anchor charts with the procedures, tips from authors, and other ideas found in one of my "bibles". I also make anchor charts with spelling strategies. We add to all the charts throughout the year. The whole idea of writing workshop is for students to work as authors, making books, sharing their books, and using their classmates' books in the class library. At the beginning of the year, I make the books. As the year progresses, students begin to put books together themselves. These are some examples from my first grade class. Some students need a little help coming up with ideas, so I leave out a menu choice for them. To celebrate this blog hop, I'll offer my Writing Menu as a freebie for a week. An InLinkz Link-up
I'm blog hopping with an amazing crew of teachers-bloggers to bring you another edition of You Ought Know - a blog hop about classroom essentials that you just HAVE to know about! I have learned so much in the past two monthly blog hops and I'm sure this month won't disappoint! You can read about Whole Brain Teaching here and Weekly Paragraph Writing here (and don't forget to keep on hopping from blog to blog for more great ideas and tips.) This month, I am writing about a website/book that I found that gives amazing tips on classroom management. We all know that classroom management is very important for a successful year, but sometimes, we struggle a little bit to achieve that dream classroom we all want. It's time to meet Michael Linsin, his blog and his book. Oh man. I can go forever and ever about the amazing way this man has changed my classroom management skills. He talks about not undermining your role, taking charge of students behaviour, how and when to intervene with students and, what I consider the most important facet of a dream classroom : how to set your routine and being consistent. He also makes it quite clear that as a teacher, you must be a storyteller, you must make your classroom FUN and interactive. This is part of your job, and will make things run a lot smoother. I read the book a few years ago, and I do find the book is worth every penny, but if you can't justify spending any more money (which I don't blame you!) then I strongly suggest reading through the articles he posts. There are many! I don't usually sign up for many newsletters, but this is one that I love receiving! Here's an article on How to Have Effective Classroom Management. And yet another one 6 Things You Must Do On The First Day Of School. In fact, there are 8 articles on the first days of schools! To browse through them all, visit his website here. You can follow Michael Linsin and Smart Classroom Management on Facebook as well. And there you had it! My classroom essential tip for the month of August. I hope you find it useful!

Looking for some terrific teacher blogs? Check Corkboard Connections.
One way that NCAEE carries out its mission is to help elementary educators find great resources on the web. Over the last year, the number of teacher blogs has exploded! Do you know how to find great blogs and follow them? Google Reader was an old favorite for organizing and reading blogs, but Google Reader is no more. However, there are many other blog feed readers that make it easy to follow and organize your favorite blogs. One that I recently discovered and really enjoy is BlogLovin. To follow NCAEE - It's Elementary on BlogLovin, just click the link below. You'll have to set up a free account, but that's easy to do. The next step is finding great teacher blogs to follow. I can help with that one! I've discovered dozens of fabulous teacher blogs over the last few years, so I decided to host a Blog Hunt link up on my Corkboard Connections blog. I invited the bloggers I know to link up their blogs so that others can find them easily. Just click on the Blog Hunt icon and you'll hop right to that blog post where you can hunt for great blogs to your heart's content! Just a word of warning ... be sure you have several hours to tackle this project because you are bound to get lost in these terrific teacher blogs! By the way, if you're interested in learning how to create your own teacher blog, be sure to attend the 10th Annual Elementary School Conference in Greensboro on October 20th - 22nd. Several bloggers will be joining me on Sunday afternoon to present a session called Teacher Blog Boot Camp. You'll learn everything you need to know to get started, and if you bring a laptop to the session, you might get your own blog started before you leave! Register for the conference now to take advantage of the early registration discount. Hope to see you there! Laura Candler is the current President of the NC Association of Elementary Educators. She's retired from the classroom where she taught grades 4 and 5 for 30 years, but she's still active in education. Laura is the creator of the Teaching Resources website, and she is the author of numerous books and ebooks for teachers.
Do you miss Google Reader yet? Have you jumped on the Bloglovin bandwagon? I have - and I am so glad I did! I can follow my favorite blogs - and I have them all sorted into categories, so I can prioritize my reading. Love it! If you haven't yet set up a free account - why are you waiting? :) If you didn't import all of your favorite blogs from Google Reader, you may be trying to remember all of them, and figuring out how to follow them all. Or maybe you're just looking for a few new great blogs to follow! For this reason, I've joined Laura Candler's Blog Hunt. Be sure to check back often to find new links to great blogs. If you'd like to follow Love. Learn. Teach. on Bloglovin, just clink the link at the top right of this page. It's that simple! I'm adding this to Laura Candler’s blog hop to find other great education blogs. Click on the button below to follow along or on the linkies under the button!!
I just joined Bloglovin, and am wondering why I waited so long!! LOVIN' the home page - set up in a super easy-to-read format. Posts you've read become greyed-out, or you can mark them as read, or LIKE a post so you can find it easily down the road! This is an example of the homepage: Since Google Reader is about to be removed for good, sign up to follow my blog with Bloglovin so you don't miss a post! While you're here, why not check out some of these other fabulous teaching blogs! Be sure to view the Link-Up Guidelines at Corkboard Connections before linking your blog! An InLinkz Link-up
Yay, you are still reading this little ol' blog of mine. :) Laura Candler over at Corkboard Connections is hosting a blog hop to help readers find other elementary school blogs. I want to join in on the party too! Now I personally signed up for Bloglovin' and I really do like the set up (especially when I'm reading on my phone). I like to be able to remember a blog post by just clicking the "heart" shape. It keeps things nice and organized. If you are new to visiting me, just look to the right where it says, Follow via Bloglovin'. The button is over there. :) When I'm on the "real" computer though I read my blog feed through Blogger.com. Honestly I didn't know what was going to happen when Google Reader went away (since I thought it just imported from Google), so I was nervous checking in yesterday morning. It's still there though, so I'm still reading it. :) On the real computer I tend to pin things to remember specific posts. You might have noticed... Anywhoo... check below at the list of blogs participating in this blog hop and see if there is someone else that you want to get to know better. Have a great day!

Who would've thought that the hardest part of the school year for a teacher isn't actually preparing for the EOGs but is quite possibly a whole nother (like that southern coming out) preparation instead... field trips! I'm in charge of my grade level's one big field trip this coming year and I thought I had gotten lucky and not drawn the short straw (IST rep or Science Chair) but who am I kidding. What in the world have I gotten myself into?! The school year is still a month away from starting and I'm already stressing out about this epic field trip. This task would be much easier if I could narrow down my decision on the destination. The reason why I am jumping into this planning head first is because the Target Field Trip Grant applications start on August 1st and I want to make sure that I have my grant proposal completed before school starts back and life gets hectic once again. Target offers up to $700 to help fund educational field trips to those lucky applicants who are chosen. I teach 5th Grade in NC so I am looking for a field trip that will not only fit our standard course of study but also keep us within the state lines. Science seems to be the subject to go to when coordinating field trips with curriculum so I've come up with a few ideas but I would love to get your input! Where have you taken your students on a field trip? What destination do you think would be perfect for the 5th Grade? I'd love to hear your ideas! Thank you in advance, The Penny Pinching Teacher
Yes, I know that the back to school specials have now been going on for several weeks and I've not quite kept you as up to date as I did last year. But that was partly on purpose because I was holding out for the best deals. Staples frustrates me in more than one way but the biggest is the fact that they set a minimum purchase on their penny deals... and I'm not spending $5 just to get 10 items for a penny. But man do I love me some Office Depot!! This week is my favorite penny deal: pocket folders (with and without fastens!) If you are a teacher, you can get 30 folders each visit instead of the typical limit of 10. I drag my mother along, of course, because she also works for a schools. We hit up 2 stores today and bought 120 folders for a grand total of $1.24! Now you cannot beat that. I'll definitely be going to get 30 more each day this week only because I pass an Office Depot on my daily deposit route for my summer job. **You can never have enough folders and your friends will love you if you share!** Mom and I also stopped by a yard sale quickly after church and I hit the jackpot with a purchase of 6 Expo Dry Erasers for.... wait for it..... 50 cent! With the Beginning of Penny Sales, (and a Happy Wallet) The Penny Pinching Teacher
My classroom is not overly decorate for the single reason that I hate clutter; but I have managed to create and borrow ideas for strategy posters to decorate my blank white wash walls. These posters not only look neat and nice on my classroom walls, but they are constant reminders to my students to use their strategies on a daily basis. The reading strategy which I modge-podged last year is TURNS. The steps are: 1. Read the TITLE and make a prediction, 2. Read and UNDERLINE key words in the questions, 3. READ the entire passage and use strategies, 4. NUMBER in the passage where you found your answer, 5. SELECT the correct answer. The math strategies in the following picture are borrowed from a co-worker. I also created another math strategy for solving multiple choice questions. CUPS... short and sweet and to the point. The steps are: CIRCLE the numbers in the problem, 2. UNDERLINE code words, 3. PICK a strategy, 4. SOLVE. What are some strategies that have made it to the walls of your classroom? With Acronym Happy Walls, The Penny Pinching Teacher
