Accountable Talk Bubbles

   We have been working on accountable talk in our classroom. To help the students remember their accountable I used the Accountable Talk Speech from The Caffeinated Teacher. They are free which is so awesome! I printed them on colored paper and posted them around the Smartboard. 

                I can really see a difference during discussions, and the kids seem more confident when they discuss the text.

Uploading More Choice Boards!

       If you are a fan of choice boards, I have a large selection of them for Reading Street for the 5th and 6th grade here. I'm currently uploading new choice boards for the 5th grade Journeys series here. I also have other great resources to go along with the Reading Street series with the choice boards. I'm working on Journeys and will be uploading weekly, so be sure to stop by often to see. Hope everyone is staying warm!

K5 Learning

            K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students. I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program. If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their open invitation to write an online learning review of their program. I'm going to be posting about how I use it in my classroom and how helpful it is with helping my students.
