    how to make whisper phones.

    Fluency #2: Whisper phones--Teacher makes phones from pvc pieces and decorative duct tape. When the child is reading, he or she puts the phone up to mouth and ear and reads out loud in a whisper tone. This allows the student to hear himself as he goes along in the story.

    Teacherific: DIY Whisper Phones. Children use while they read to themselves. Go to the website for instructions.

    Think clouds for Guided Reading groups--kiddos pull when they use a strategy and discuss thinking at end of group.

    My take on the bucket seats. HoME Depot bucket & lid $4. I spray painted over the original writing on bucket with navy blue and stenciled the Chicago bears logo. The cushion is carpet covered with fabric. Great for a kids core. Great for extra teacher storage. Super cute. Super cheap! Email me if you need more details Jcwiakala108@gmai...! GET CREATIVE!

    so timely...had trouble with a couple of "read to selfers" just today!

    Use for different small group tables

    Personalized Reading Boxes

    Use a tap-it light to show think alouds during your read alouds. Tap the light "on" when you stop reading and discuss what the text makes you think. Helps students to "see" the difference between your reading and your thinking. Could also use to let students know when you are not available, during reading/writing conferences, etc.

    Research indicates that three minutes of spinning could quadruple memory tracks among children! A Sit 'n' Spin is not necessary, either - just have kids spin in place in the direction of their dominant hands after learning. You'll be amazed at the results. *PARENTS: If your child is having trouble with spelling tests, try having him/or her spin after studying them. Mothers have come back and told me it is the first time their children EVER made 100 on their spelling tests!

    Great pinterest idea I tried! Students can't interrupt reading groups when the light is on! They love it! Great visual reminder!

    a "sweet" idea :)

    cell phone partners-each child selects 10 names to put on a speed dial number. When you need a partner, teacher calls out a number and they check the speed dial to see who their partner is this time. cute idea
