Ingredients for good writing...I teach the kids to look at the word alliteration...it begins with ALL. I tell them that with alliteration several if not ALL of the words in a phrase or sentence begin with the same consonant sound. We practice a few tongue twisters.

So true! We must adapt for the student! Everyone has different learning styles!
Children are born capable of learning... This is the saying I read for two years in grades 5 and 6. I have two of the most awesome teachers who inspired me to teach, and this is the philosphy in which I teach.

great idea in teaching kids b and d
teaching letters B and D
This elementary school teacher and mom of three's blog is really cool because she comes up with creative ways to build literacy skills and great ways to correct common spelling and reading mistakes. This specific pin is a great example of practicing the correct formation of the letters b and d. Often, young children struggle distinguishing between the two letters because they are similar in shape and sound. Letter reversal is common for kindergartners so this activity would be great in the classroom. Shelley Xu examines the impact of New Literacy Studies (NLS) on literacy development. This activity fits in well with the concept of multiliteracies. Multiliteracies involve alternative modes of learning such as visual, gestural, and spatial. This activity relies on all three of those things - the students are creating visual representations of the correct letter formations, the students are using their hands to make the letters, and the students are practicing spatial relations between different letters. I would definitely use this activity in my classroom to help students learn their letters and how to read them.
Great idea for kids who reverse the letters 'b' and 'd'
teaching reading- letters "b" and "d" good idea
Cute idea to teaching "b" and "d"

Laminate and use a dry-erase marker on the sticky notes. Use for writing or summarizing narratives. (Post Its, Sticky Notes, English Language Arts, Anchor Chart, Grammar) ALSO use with story map characters, setting, etc
This graphic organizer is great for teaching students to summarize when a story has a strong problem and solution. To make it a more effective anchor chart, there should be a title and an explicit explanation of SUMMARIZING at the top.
