A Solution to Help Learn the Letters and Sounds!

individual-chartsOne of my best teaching solutions for helping children with their letters and sounds was my Letter-Sound Wall Chart. The Letter- Sound Picture Individual Charts for each kiddo is equally great. Each kiddo has their own chart to  correlate with the Letter Sound Wall Chart.  Once the kiddos learn the picture sound cards from the wall chart they can use the individual charts for more practice throughout the day.


A practical way to include all the memories of a school year!

Have you ever wanted to come up with a practical way to include all the memories of a school year? I know I did.  I wanted a way to organize, and keep  memories for my kiddos and their parents. I also  wanted it to be a way I could chart professional growth as in a Portfolio.  With all the demands in the classroom, it was getting harder and harder to accomplish a memory/portfolio.



My Best Writer’s Workshop Tip

One of the best things I ever did in Writers Workshop was to introduce topic cards.  My kindergartners seemed to have trouble coming up with ideas for writing.  I found it was difficult for my kindergartners to come up with the stories.  I would model in a mini lesson with a story or topic, but there still needed to be something else to help the kiddos come up with writing ideas.  It needed to be a picture, a visual piece.
