Fun idea 💡! Every once in a while I let my student look through my big books. I give them a stack of post it notes and have them mark all the sight words they can find throughout the book. Last year my kids were OBSESSED with post it notes and this was one of their favorite activities. This was a super fun and engaging one!
I printed this screenshot and laminated it for students to practice typing out their weekly sight words! They tally each time they type out each word. This is a fun engaging way to help kids recognize, read, and write their sight words! (I think it’d be cool to add emojis or other options in the future.. we will see)Perfect for a #wordwork station! Jenna also gathered a lot of old cellphones and actually has her students type them out!! Since I don’t have any cellphones lying around- this will do for now :). .
>>what are some of your word work ideas?? List them below! We would love to hear it!

As a self-contained teacher I really struggled with inclusive social skills groups and lunch bunches at the beginning of last year! As a result, I had created social skills strips that I could grab and pick a conversation starter without having to think about it. In it contains 5 SOCIAL SKILLS discussion starter packs that contain engaging ways to get kids talking and building relationships! I even got my students excited for social skills group by being able to pick the topic!
Now, almost all of my students are in lunch bunches, small group social skills, or in some form of social skills instruction. These are also so fun for general ed teachers to use for teacher lunch rewards or teacher time rewards! OR fill that extra five minutes before transitioning to lunch or recess with a quick Would You Rather group response!
Want to get ahead for next year and prevent having to prepare conversation topics that are engaging and fun for kids?

#hobbylobbychallenge having so much fun today PLC'ing and classroom planning with my lifelong friend! She's a beaut! And she has the greatest idea for a classroom theme! She is going to have an outdoor theme- with trees and greenery and flowers! Can't wait to see the end result!
After completing a unit on addition and subtraction we want the children to continue to build their understanding of the connection between the two operations. We have planned an activity first week back using these start, change and result unknown cards. Can be used as a whole class activity or as a silent shuffle in small groups.

Teachers and mommas, if you don’t know about gonoodle, you can create a free account or find some songs on #youtube ! My three year old loves gonoodle songs! I’ve seen it effectively used in moderate/severe special ed through general ed, from littles to high school! #teachermom#teacherhacks
