An Earth Day Craftivity

I love Earth and I am sure that you do too! There are so many things that we can do to show that love.One of the things I just love to do is to plant flowers and decorative plants. Well I kinda slowed down a bit over the years, especially when I had all that studying to do. But with that punctuated I think I should aim to put more time into tending to my little old garden. So what do you like about the earth? Think about it!

On April 22nd people all over the world would be celebrating Earth Day. It is a time to reconnect with Mother Nature and her works of art. Our kids must be taught how to continue the trend of caring, protecting and conserving its splendor. For this reason I created two great Earth Day resources. An Earth Day Craftivity and the Earth Day Facts For Kids Mini Book. You can read more about them below.

An Earth Day Craftivity

This Craftivity was created for kids from Kindergarten to Grade 3. In this lesson kids would not only write about some of the things that they can do to honor our precious Earth, but they also get to create a beautiful bear on which they will present their creative pieces. Don't worry there's something there for you too! Included are discussion cards for your lessons and Earth Day bookmarks for you to present to your kiddos!

 Earth Day Facts For Kids Mini Book


This is a little book that explains Earth Day in a way that kids will understand. They get to know about the little things that harm and hurt our planet Earth. They would be able to make a small change so that in the end it will save the Earth bigtime!

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. There are many reasons why the act of reading may be difficult for some, nevertheless, it is important to find the possible causes and to employ corrective measures to help overcome them. In my 24 years of teaching I have used many different reading strategies in my classroom, however, I believe that the most powerful tool a teacher can use with her students is actually listening to them read and individually note their progress.   This article summarizes 12 common errors t

Base Words vs Root Words

In my experience over the years I have come across some terms which have similar yet totally different meanings. It is sometimes so easy to interchange these terms, but, as teachers we need to understand what we teach before we get down to teaching it. One such dilemma is the use of the terms 'base word' and 'root word'. Now don't get me wrong here, it's all the best that we are able to tell the difference, especially in the teaching of the higher grades. However, for the younger kids it may not be all that important to distinguish. A base word refers to the part of a word that is an actual word that can stand alone. Prefixes and suffixes were added to them. The root of a word refers to that part of the base word that comes from another language. These cannot stand alone. As a matter of fact, the knowledge of the root of a word can help older kids with Spelling and Vocabulary. Take a look at the visual below for an explanation using
