Anchor Charts for Writing

If you would've asked me my thoughts about using anchor charts in the classroom a few years ago, I would've said something along the lines of them being more appropriate in a primary room--not so much 4th or 5th grade. I've come to learn that anchor charts are just as necssary in intermediate classrooms--and may even be more beneficial--than in a primary room! Anchor charts are very big in my school and the students here have learned to look for them in their classrooms over the years. My…

Lotto, Pigeons & 4 Types of Sentences!

Did someone say $550 MILLION DOLLARS??!! Wow! My brain can't even comprehend what that kind of rich would be like, but like 99% of the US, I have bought my tickets & am patiently awaiting the number draw tonight. A few of us went in together at school, so maybe that will increase the odds. I think the heading " First Grade Teachers Hit the Lotto" has a great ring to it !! :) Anyway, beyond the daydreams of wealth, this Common Core change is something I'm really trying to wrap my brain…

Get Interactive: What's Your Status?

Our creative Westover librarian, Katherine has an update on her latest cool display: Sometimes when I'm reading a book, I feel like I'm becoming the character. Like everything that affects them is affecting me too. A really good book can change the way you look at the world, and make you see life in a new light… And a really good book makes me wonder what the character would say if they could tell me how they're really feeling. That's what led me to ask teens at Westover Branch Library…

Notice and Note

During my school district's implementation of #CCSS, I have been fortunate enough to serve on the District Language Arts Workgroup. In these meetings, we have had spirited debate and discussion regarding not only Common Core State Standards and its implementation, but also the strategic instruction required and the research to support that instruction. While discussing the need for students to actively participate in close reading of texts, I noticed that one of the excerpts of research that…
