Digging Deeper:  Writing about Reading in our Reading Notebooks!

Blogger

Hello everyone! Are you counting down the days until spring? I know we are! The students are getting a little touch of "Spring Fever" so I am trying to balance the wiggles we are experiencing with our need to really dig "DEEP" into our content. The Common Core really is asking us to push our students, and as I have been really working to immerse myself in the CCSS and the "intent" of it, I realize that there are few things that I think we need to keep in mind as we move forward. Perhaps you…

Great poster to encourage active, critical, and engaged reading.

An Amazon Listing Cumulative Novel Project!

An Amazon Listing Cumulative Novel Project! - Teaching with a Mountain View

It’s no secret that I love a good cumulative novel project as an assessment. I usually spend the entire novel brainstorming how we can sum it up! Sometimes the projects are a miss (you don’t get to read about those!) but sometimes they are great successes. Like the character project we completed for Rules or ... Read more

I {Heart} Notebooks 2.0

your curly co-captain, Suzanne We have been blown away by the number of people who have checked out I {Heart} Notebooks! So in honor of over 1,000 page views, we bring to you the sequel- I {Heart} Notebooks 2.0. Last year was our first year to use interactive notebooks. Before school began, we found ourselves with the desire but no direction, so we made it up. Overall, they were a success, but we did learn some tricks and additions that we've implemented this year. As you know, I'm a…

FAST Characterization: Great for student writing and for analyzing characters in class novels

Characterization

I LOVE this easy four-square characterization organizer: The character's name goes in the middle of the page, surrounded by four squares that include the characters Feelings, Actions, Sayings, and Thoughts. This graphic organizer will be great when reading novels to better understand characters and for student writing as they develop their characters.

I was looking for good "starters" to ignite discussion in my classroom.  Am thinking about creating these and then laminating them and taping them on each student's desk.

Accountable Talk

Literature Circles Made Simple- a blog post with lots of suggestions for organizing, running and assessing using literature circles.

Literature Circles Made Easy

I love using literature circles, or book clubs, during my guided reading groups! I love them because they make lesson planning simple, they give me the opportunity to introduce new authors and series to my students, they give my students the opportunity to practice skills learned in a mini lesson and most importantly...the kids LOVE them! They cheer when it is their day to meet with me and they grumble if we have to cancel due to assemblies or fire drills. Having my students get excited…

Frog and Toad

Fun with Frog and Toad and a 100 Follower Giveaway! A Little Freebie, too!

Woah! The last few weeks have been crazy! I am very excited to be back to blogging because I've got some goodies to share and because it is so much easier to do on my fancy new laptop! (May my old one rest in peace:). A few weeks ago, I feared that with the loss of my laptop, I may have also lost my Frog and Toad unit that I'd been working so hard on for our Arnold Lobel week. Luckily, I was able to scrape together some bits and pieces of my unit to do with my kiddos before our Spring Break…
