Another Trick to Conquer Place Value

I love place value. . . I think everyone should. . . but alas. . . not everyone does and not everyone understands it as quickly as we'd like them too. 

I found this great post and I thought I'd share it with you too, just in case it would work for you and your kiddos. 

Marcy from Saddle Up for 2nd Grade (and she is from Texas, wouldn't you know!) has a great way to get your kids up and moving in order to learn. Click HERE to find out more about it. I hope you love it.

More Sight Word Practice Ideas

Two years ago I subbed in my daughter-in-law's kindergarten classroom. That was a real stretch for me! But I did survive and am alive to tell about it. 

Learning sight words was a huge undertaking for many students. I just came across a great blog post that shares some good quality and easy ideas to get those kids to practicing with their sight words. 

If you click HERE, you'll go to Surfing Into Success's post about them. 

Even if you're not a kindergarten teacher, I think you could use this with some of your student's who need extra practice.

Help to Get You Ready for This Fall

Many of you will be starting school soon. If you're from Michigan, most of us won't start until the day after Labor Day. . . It's the law. . . however, some schools have been granted waivers so they can start before. 

Anyway, I found this neat post about 6 Things You Must Do Now to get ready for next year. I think if you read it, you'll find some quality things here.

How to Organize Your Library

If you are like me, you have a ton of books in your classroom library. But do you have them organized? Do you like the way you have them organized? You could read The Teacher's Treasure Chest and see how Ashley organized her library. I think you'll like it. 

(This is a repost from earlier this year and it has a giveaway at the end. . . so just skip over that part.)
