Teaching With a Mountain View: Independent Reading Response Anchor Charts I'm excited to share these anchor charts with you! We have been using these for quite some time now, and my students are becoming pros. A lot of the time, I do have students answering specific questions, but depending on the assignment, I will also have the students use these anchor charts to begin their writing. When we came up with these prompts (I guided them...heavily!)
School Year Calendar 2015 - 2016 Freebie When I was teaching, I searched and searched to find the perfect calendar to use with my students, but I just couldn't find one that I liked. I needed 8 1/2 x 11 portrait-style pages that would fit in a 3-ring binder, and I also wanted large blocks for writing in the dates and events. Eventually I gave up the search and decided to make my own. To create more space for writing on the weekdays, I made skinny blocks on the weekends.
Readers absorb less on Kindles than on paper, study finds A new study which found that readers using a Kindle were "significantly" worse than paperback readers at recalling when events occurred in a mystery story is part of major new Europe-wide research looking at the impact of digitisation on the reading experience. The study, presented in Italy at a conference last month and set to be published as a paper, gave 50 readers the same short story by Elizabeth George to read. Half read the 28-page story on a Kindle, and half in a paperback, with readers then tested on aspects of the story including objects, characters and settings. Anne Mangen of Norway's Stavanger University, a lead researcher on the study, thought academics might "find differences in the immersion facilitated by the device, in emotional responses" to the story.
Kindergarten-First Grade Calendar Notebook We started our new school year this week, and it’s gotten off to a great start! This year, I have a 3rd grader, a 1st grader, an Early Kindergartner, and a Preschooler (2 1/2 yo who is itching to “do school”). Earlier this week, I posted the Preschool Calendar Notebook that I am using with my K4 Kindergartener. (And she loves it! It’s her favorite part of school so far!)
