Teacher has created long list of cartoon Pixar (and other) shorts to be used to teach reading strategies. She also has graphic organizers to go with them....Totally and completely amazing! What a great way to get (and keep) the kids' attention!
Technology Up to Speed: Movie Shorts and Reading Strategies
Such a simple idea for Greek and Latin Roots!!! Posting the root word wheel outside of my door, it acts as a “Password” as my 5th graders enter into my classroom. Each morning, students lead a simple, 3-5 minute activity working with our root - recording it, listing it, picturing it, chanting it, and teaching it.
