It seems like everywhere I look I find inspiration and new ideas for next year. Last spring I read The Daily Five and though I can't fit it all in with the reading program I am required to teach, I've decided to at least do read to self, and possibly read with a friend.
Then I found Teacher Tipster's website and started watching some of his amazing (and somewhat wacky at times) videos. He does a finished work binder with sheet protectors. I'm going to use that idea next year. I can't decide whether to use his one breath boxes or the excellent Whole Brain Teaching Super Speed 100 stuff. Decisions, decisions.
Speaking of Whole Brain Teaching, I began incorporating some of their management system into my teaching last year. I had used 1,2,3 eyes on me forever, but once I got used to class/yes, I found it easier and much more effective.
Of course I
General Teaching Stuff
Science and Social Studies
Arts and Crafts (includes music)
Teaching with Technology
This one isn't all teaching, but it's pinterest stuff I've tried
And one more: Educational Videos which are some videos for students to watch, and others for me to watch good teachers teach.
You may notice I have a . before each of my teacher board's name. I did this because I pin most often to my teacher boards and I wanted them to come up at the beginning of the list so I didn't have to scroll down so much. This way they're always at the top.
Well, I think that's enough for today. I'll try to get some pictures going again soon.
