I have my kids read aloud during "Read to Self". They love it!
Ours came on a CD labeled "Selection Tests".
We have 20 words on our lists. Our last series had 25.
I also have my kids highlight their name on their papers. It really cuts down on the "no name" papers. I do rarely get a paper without a name,...
You should check out "Model Drawing". It's a big part of Singapore Math. I started using this strategy with my kids last year and they loved it!...
Don't forget Cursive writing too!!! :)
I also have my kids highlight their name before they turn in their papers. It really works well.
Hey, loves2teach, what part of TN are you in?
My students love Judy Moody Books and Amber Brown Books.
Have you checked your local Wal-Mart or Staples, or office supply store? Our stores here have the supply lists for each of the local schools.
