Reading through Genres series and it's on teaching strategies in the classroom. Perfect timing for back to school!
Teaching with a Touch of Twang has an awesome post just in time for back to school on having an interactive open house. You'll want to head on over to read it.
iTeach Third. Back to school friend wanted ads. Get them writing AND building community right away. Genius.
Owl Ways Be Inspired, to get kids talking and working collaboratively.
Lucky to be in First. Want to make more class books but having a hard time coming up with good ideas or the time to create them (or am I just describing myself?) Molly has monthly sets, and her September set would be amazing for the beginning of the year.
Five on the Fifth BONUS! Linda from Around the Kampfire wrote about using this book in her class the first week of school. I kind of want to bust in somebody's classroom at my new school and borrow their kiddos for these activities. Not weird at all.
Hope everyone has a great first day!
