Gallery Walk of Writing = A Great Experience!

My students and I are extremely lucky to have our Reading Specialist, Mrs. Seminara, visit us twice a week to work on writing using Lucy Calkins' Up the Ladder Program!  One of the activities involved doing a writing gallery walk in which students had to opportunity to read and comment upon their classmates' writing:

Still in School Next Week ~ ?

If you're lucky like me, you'll be in school until next Friday looking for educational and fun activities.  I just wrote a blog post at my Conversation From The Classroom with some FREE activites:


Storybird = Writing on the Computer = FUN FOR ALL!

I recently discovered Storybird which is a FREE web site that offers kids the opportunity to write picture books or poems on the computer.  

Now that we have Chromebook carts, it's so much easier to use the computers.  First the kids work on Lexia or Freckle which gives the kids reading and math practice.

After 20 minutes, the kids can make Powerpoints on Google slides or head over to Storybird.  The kids LOVE to write and create on the computer!


Ivory Ella = Excellent Shirts for an Excellent Cause!

If you're tired of spending a LOT of MONEY for famous named shirts, head over to Ella Ivory where you can purchase elephant-themed clothing and jewelry at a more reasonable price point.  In addition, the company donates part of the profits to Save the Elephants and other charitable organizations:


Do you have any fun suggestions for holiday activities or gifts?  Please let me know in the comments!
