We have been out of school now for a couple of weeks AND we just received the news that we will have a new principal next year.

Motivate students to read with QR Listening Centers

My students love hearing their favorite books being read. They love to hear them over and over. This is also a great way to get reluctant readers to read by listening to familiar text. So familiar that they begin to know how the story goes. Last year I begin making QR codes for their favorite books in the reading center. This was so popular that students were racing to the reading center so they could grab their favorite book and listen. So I decided to create a whole listening center dedicated to favorite monthly read alouds.
I am amazed how they listen to the same stories over and over, but this also makes my teacher heart so happy because I know I am instilling in them the love of a good book. Now that's exciting.
I also wanted to check on their understanding as they were reading. At the end of each week for their Friday reading check up, they choose one book to retell, character analysis or BME. This listening center has been a game changer for checking their comprehension. Sometimes those struggling readers are not reading up to grade level standards so they can struggle with retell. However since using these QR listening centers, students are able to listen many time during the week and month so they are able to concentrate more on their understanding.

What are your top 3 things to get during the TPT sale?

It's that dreaded time of year....back to school sales. We don't want to acknowledge the school supply aisles in Walmart and Target but it is unavoidable. Well the TPT sale is one sale you can get excited about (8/1-8/2) Whether you are a TPT'er and you have clipart and fonts in your cart or you are a classroom teacher your eye on those math centers or cute classroom decorations. Well I want to give you the top 3 favorite things from our store that will help you start the year off right.

We are so excited about our first bundle! This is a year long growing bundle that will be finished in a few weeks. Bundles are expensive so during a sale these are a must have. The awesome thing about these mystery pictures are there are two ways to make them.
Just for stopping by....Grab this freebie and let us know how your kiddos like them!

Are you a techie teacher? Well if you aren't using these QR codes listening centers will make you look like one. The thing I love about these is that they are created in safeshare. That means no ads or pop ups. Students scan and it takes them directly to their video. This August pack has some great back to school titles. This pack includes activity sheets to check for understanding and keeps students on task while staying focused on reading skills.

Last I am so excited to use this with my students our first week back. Kids love sticky notes and tic tac toe...so why not combine the two!! WE did for our newest product Sticky Note Tic Tac Toe. Students will work with a partner to play tic tac toe using addition and subtraction facts. Instead of X's and O's, they will record their answer on a sticky note and place it on the board. You need 3 right answers in a row to win.

Happy Shopping!! Please share your go to resources for back to school. Would love to hear from you!
