As a TPT Seller, I often get asked if my resources are editable. Often, they are not. Clipart and fonts are sold with licenses that often do not allow them to be used in editable resources, which restricts my ability to make resources editable. However, there are ways...

As a TPT Seller, I often get asked if my resources are editable.
Many times as teachers we end up trying to plan for a week at a time (maybe two if we are lucky), and rarely have time to consider any sort of long-range planning. If this situation sounds familiar, my advice would be to take time (sooner rather than later) and do a deep dive into your standards.
Teaching your students to effectively participate in this process makes determining the learning needs of your students easier. Once you know the learning needs of your students, you can differentiate instruction.
From my experience, I know things I have done that made my lessons less accessible, but I wanted to get ideas from students, too. (Luckily, I have access to students through my kids.)
As I love to read and have many fond memories of books from childhood, it makes sense that read-aloud time was one of my favorite things in the classroom.
To help everyone kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves, I am holding the Summer Fun Challenge from June 5 to August 6.
With targeted interventions and a supportive classroom environment, these students can begin to feel successful, which in turn helps motivate them to try.
As students with poor reading skills fall farther behind, they tend to avoid reading, which weakens their skills and compounds the problem.
BalloonPop™ is self-correcting and self-paced. As students play, they are returned to the question to try again after an incorrect answer.
Review is good for students – but only if they are engaged and actively participate. Enter test prep games.
If you had taught my kids in middle school, you might not have even realized they both struggled with reading.
Let’s talk about a few ways we can teach students how not to stress over tests.
I’ve seen how high-stakes testing has affected kids. We have kids who are so stressed out that they’re throwing up on their tests.
This week, I thought we should discuss strategies to use when different types of test questions are given to students.
As teachers help students prepare, we need to make sure that they not only feel comfortable with the material but also with taking a test.
Hello! I’m Amy Mezni!
- I believe that students need to be the leaders of the classroom. Even third graders are old enough to be held accountable and to take responsibility for their learning.
- I do not believe that kids were made to sit in seats. They need to get up and move around.
- Differentiated instruction is a must. I use guided reading and guided math groups to meet the individual needs of my students.
- Helping a student to discover their love for reading is a privilege that I never get tired of.
- School should be fun! We party in my class!
