I spent a couple of days in Atlanta last week and spent a lot of time at EDexpo! Bloggers spent the day checking out each booth and at the end we picked our Top Ten Products! I’ve linked everything up, but check out EDMarketDealer first! I think that every teacher and principal should go to this. I learned so much and discovered amazing products that I now can’t live without. Not only did I fall in love with great products, but I was able to spend time with some amazing bloggers. This was such a fabulous experience!
I have been using this all week in my classroom. You just place the number or letter onto your iPad to complete a problem or word. The iPad recognizes that particular number or letter, which makes this so magical to students.
This game helps your kiddos learn those tricky sight words. There are color-coded sight word cards, sentence flashcards, and books. Each color has different level sight word cards and sentence flashcards. I have also been playing this all week with my small groups. The kids think that this is such a fun game and they have learned so any new words already.
This is a fun word game that includes a box of word cards that you use to create sentences. You pass out a set number of word cards to everyone playing. These cards stay upside down. Someone starts by flipping their card to start the sentence, the next person flips their card over and continues the sentence. You go around adding to this silly sentence until someone can’t think of a sentence or runs out of cards.
These are great for those kiddos who need to touch something while they are focusing on another task. They can be mounted to different things and can be washed! They can be mounted right where they were after washing too!

But try to look objectively at your teaching. Step into whatever discomfort you might feel—and ask yourself, honestly, why you’re feeling that way.
This work isn’t easy. It takes time and patience and a relentless commitment to being critical of ourselves and the systems around us. I have often caught myself falling into bad habits, and I must continue to work actively to decolonize my own assumptions of what is considered valuable.
While these questions are structured in list form, inclusive practices cannot be reduced to a checklist. For example, an inclusive curriculum cannot be achieved by simply checking off a list of diverse authors and texts. Instead, inclusive practices must infuse every part of our pedagogy.
Asking ourselves these questions is a necessary first step—yet it is only a step. The real work begins when we take action." -Tricia Ebvaria
Our kids NEED to know numbers in many different ways. Some groups just do the 1-5 version of these activities. Some do 1-10 with tallies. To push this group further, they took shapes and dot patterns and ordered the numbers greatest to least. SO MANY WAYS TO DIFFERENTIATE. This is easily my favorite number sense pack. bit.ly/numbersensepackFB... See MoreSee Less
