 I am in a good mood because: 1. Today was the second day of the entire school year I had in my classroom alone, no students. Finally, got that work done I cannot accomplish with them in the classroom! (Besides the time I show up early or stay late to prepare for my weekly lessons) But I got to do some house cleaning! 2. I am wearing this bomb nail polish that has put Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" in my head on repeat. I can't even lie to you... I have really enjoyed seeing my nails sparkle on my document camera. Is this weird? Probably. 3. Mardi Gras is right around the corner and Holy Word I am ready. Unlike most of you, Southern LA did not get the snow day breaks. Whaa. Regardless... I am ready for my 2 days off. Ready for New Orleans, the parades, the Mardi Gras Ball, the beads. And mainly ready to paint my face with glitter, wear my purple/ green/ yellow feathered Mardi Gras boa and dance in the street. And yes I do plan on doing all of that.   And to top off the Mardi Gras celebration, "The Park" always does a parade of Pre-K- 1st Graders.... SO CUTE! The kids drag their mini shoe box floats and throw beads to the rest of the school. Best day.  Anyways, since I had so much time in my classroom today, I didn't have much to take home! So, I decided to upload my Journaling Sticks for you tonight :) Click Here Seriously guys, these sticks have been such an awesome tool! I have seen such creative writing taking place at the writing station! The journal topics really have gotten those juices flowing for my kids. Also, at the end of the Journaling Topics document are Quiz Questions (Who are the characters, what is the setting, etc.) These are a great tool to use during small group time. *There are 33 Journaling Topics and 15 Quiz Questions. I printed mine on Avery 1"x 2 5/8" (30 labels per sheet, Template 5160) Afterwards, I cut them down to fit on the large popsicle sticks.  * And to top off the night, I finally figured out how to reduce my PDF sizes. About time.

Supporting ELLs in the Science Classroom: Part II

Science Sentence Stems for ELLs-- You can have some standard sentence stems that are used for many classroom activities, as well as sentence stems for particular activities.

Science Sentence Stems as support for your ELL students. Help them with the vocabulary and what you're looking for in their science journals.

Science Sentence Stems: these are a good support for your language learners. Have them write them in the front of their science notebook, or create an anchor chart. Use in other subjects too. Introduces and reinforces the academic language.

Science Sentence Stems-- supporting ELLs and early readers in science. This would make a great anchor chart!

I love having sentence starters for ELL students. Not only is this a great idea for science, but for every subject. This is also good for students who aren't ELL. Sometimes all you need to do is give a student a sentence starter and the rest will flow more easily.

What was life like before Pinterest? How did we live without all of these fantastic ideas all nicely organized in one place?? To think I rejected it for so long!  When I did finally come around my life changed (a little dramatic there).  Just when you think you've seen it all, you can find something new on Pinterest! Today I'm linking up with Ashley over at Just Reed for this fun 10 Pin Linky. Love this idea of sharing top 10s from Pinterest. I've included the original source if I had one. My pet peeve is when I find a great idea and it's not linked to the original source. I always check where the pin links back to. Do you?? Here are my top 10 Reader's Workshop Pins. 1. The Thought Bubble from A Teacher's Treasure. I know my kids would love using this during class discussion or partner work. 2. I ❤❤❤ sticky notes. My kids use them during reading time everyday, so this idea caught my eye. Mrs. Prince & Co. created these great activities to accompany sticky notes.  3. This Pin comes via Instagram. The students find crazy, fun facts while reading informational text. They can post their fact if they can show the teacher the text it came from. I can see myself creating a book basket of Fun Fact Books! Love it! 4. Sorry I couldn't get a full screen shot of this next Pin, but you can get the idea. I'm eating up as much info as I can on close reading. 5. From Cafe 1123, is this strategy for starting a reader's notebook. 6. Great alternative to traditional biography book reports. Love this wax museum idea from Cottage on Blackbird Lane. 7. Simple graphic for identifying main idea from First Grade Wow. Notice the use of sticky notes!  8. More sticky notes! Here is a great bulletin board idea where student can recommend books to their classmates.  9. If I can learn about new books to share with my students, it is a must Pin! 10. My bloggy buddy Jessica at Ideas by Jivey shared this anchor chart from Pinterest. It helps students see the various levels of thinking as they read. It guides them in writing better sticky notes. Thanks for stopping by today! Visit my TpT Store today and tomorrow for 20%!  Enjoy your 4th of July!

Writer's Notebook Writing Ideas

writing notebook ideas

A Writer’s Notebook is an essential part of the Writing Workshop model in the upper grades. I also believe that every teacher of writing needs a writer’s notebook. Mem Fox says, “If you are not a writer, you will not understand the difficulties of writing. If you are not a writer, you will not know the fears and hopes of the writers you teach.” Below are just a few of the entries in my writer’s notebook. I will add student samples as soon as I can get them photographed and uploaded. | 6-Traits Resources
