Styrofoam Sheet Calendar!

Recently I got my hands on a large piece of styrofoam sheet from a furniture store and did not know what to do with it. Then, thanks to pinterest, I saw these beautiful wall decor and immediately I began thinking of how best to use this idea in my classroom decor.

  4. Styrofoam balls come in a variety of sizes and make an appropriate base for do-it-yourself Christmas ornaments. You can select fabric of any texture, color or print to cover the Styrofoam balls. Folding the fabric and pinning the squares to the ball will create a jagged, pine cone-like effect that is seasonal and attractive. Once you complete the pinning, simply attach fishing wire and an ornament hook to the ball to finish the project.

12 Common Reading Errors and How to Overcome Them

Reading is the act of making meaning from the printed word, symbols or pictures in one's environment. Children are often taught to read formally using a multifaceted approach which involves word recognition, comprehension, fluency and motivation. As they grow and as their reading exposures increase many begin to struggle and are soon left behind if they do not form meaningul connections. Teachers must be able to find those who have not quite gotten the hang of reading and to make attempts to assist them.

How To Teach Creative Writing To Young Children

Teaching children to write creatively is not something that you can complete at any one particular grade level. It involves a series of planned situations and activities that gradually lead to independent writing. From as early as preschool a child's writing begins to take shape as he learns to interpret print. As he grows his understanding of that print is translated into a greater command of the language. Essentially, as he progresses through the grade levels his writing unfolds as a more personal stamp. As a teacher my goal is to d evelop the writing skills  of my students. This means that I must slowly direct each child to writing independently. To do so I must model good writing, write with them collaboratively, guide their efforts and allow them to work on their own. These stages are summed up under the following headings: Modeled Writing Shared Writing Guided Writing Independent Writing 1. Modeled Writing In this initial step I must
