Freedom in the Classroom
By Retta London of Rainbow City Learning

Teaching kids about freedom and keeping it simple.

By Marypat Mahoney of Just Add Students

Giving students choice on what they write about and the mode in which it’s written puts the power back into students’ hands. Not only that, but in the real world — our students will be writing letters of complaint, business proposals, notes of condolence, emails to explain or convince, blog posts to explain opinions… the list goes on. So, how do we do that?


Stars & Stripes

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

When I think about July 4th, I think about our American Flag and what it represents. I asked my class what this day means to them. A young boy stated, “It’s when you get to see fireworks. This is one of the responses I expected, so I asked why do we have fireworks? He just shrugged his shoulders. Another student responded and said, “To celebrate our Independence from England.” Great answer I told him.

Language Arts - "10 r-Controlled Games & Activities"

by Amanda Trump
Grades 1-3

This unit is a package of 10 activities and games that are designed to make it easy for students to learn to read r-controlled syllable type words. There are 6 syllable types, and r-controlled is one of the six types. These syllables are called –r-controlled because the –r is in control and the vowel is out of control when sounding out the word. Instead, of the vowels making their normal sounds, the –r decides for them what sound the vowel is going to make. Reading and spelling r-controlled words require visual memory and experience. These games will teach students a few consistent tips to remember when reading these kinds of words. There are five -r-controlled vowels--ar, -er, -ir, -or, -ur. These five vowel spellings make 4 different sounds. The packet includes 75 -r-controlled words cards and the following 10 games: 

1. Climb a Tree 
2. Grow a Centipede
3. Football Frenzy
4. Dominoes
5. Uno 
6. Clear the Board 
7. Snail Shell
8. Wild Animal Race
9. Checkers 
10. Circle Out
