STAAR Season is in the air!


STAAR season is in the air! I know! So I LOVE for students to work on stations! One size fits few! I've always changed my stations during "STAAR season". For one big reason: so students have ownership over their own learning and closing their academic gaps they have regarding STAAR. The best way to do that is make stations not only geared for specific TEKS (this should already be done) but to make certain that each station meets the specific needs each student will need.

Sound a bit overwhelming? Well, it did to me once, as well! Feel free to download something I use in my classroom during the "STAAR season". We continue doing station work in math, reading and science, but we are MUCH more specific in what we do. Students focus on what they need, record specific skills they work on and NEED to work and I get to work on small group teaching, specific to TEKS students are still struggling on.

Not everyone needs to be a Tier 3 students to need intervention. This is my plan to meet specific needs each student has. If it can help you, Feel free to download!

Happy Teaching!

Happy New Year


So I'm working on an activity that will allow the students to actually "make" their own lawns with green butcher paper. Everyone will get to make their own and then their classmates will have to actually figure out the area and perimeter of that lawn. Still in progress....... What's on your lesson plans? Download what is below here!

Comprehension Connections and a Foldable (or two)


So my grade level read the book below. It had been a couple of years since I had cracked the book open since we had it at my previous district.

So I put together something you may be able to use if you are so inclined. I pretty much re-read the book, made some sheets for a reading interactive journal, typed up some of the quotes it recommends to use with students and tied a bow on it. Use it if you can. It's completely free. For the download, click here. Goodbye, summer. Until next year! I'll post first day stuff soon. Well, I hope to! Stop by my Instagram to see first day activities! A picture is worth a thousand words....I don't have to write! ;)

Happy Teaching!
