I can hardly believe how quickly our little chat that could is now a grown up chat that CAN! One year ago, my friend Debbie Clement from Rainbows Within Reach asked me to become part of her group of co-moderators in a new endeavor to help bring educators to twitter in a friendly, helpful format. I am so happy I answered that invitation!
#TeacherFriends Educational Twitter Chat is 1 Year Old, so we are celebrating this amazing milestone with an unbelievable night!
On June 30 at 9:00 EST Former guest Edu-Celebrities will join us for a fun discussion of this past year’s topics, guests, and think about the future too! Of course, in our tradition, there will be PRIZES! And holy cow, what prizes!!! You do not want to miss this chat. You will have an opportunity to sign up to win books, tech goodies, and more! Just take a look!!!
If you would like to preschedule your responses in tweetdeck (try it if you haven’t yet), here are the questions:
As a way to celebrate, I am offering this packet aligned to the 88 Journeys 2014 sight words as a thank-you for all of the support you have given me over the years. In a short while, I will be moving my blog over to wordpress, and it will be bigger and better than ever! I will maintain this blog to make sure you can access the files and posts you may find on pinterest, but new content will begin to be added to my new site. Here is a sneak peek at what it will look like, and I must say I am so excited about this new design!
Stay tuned for a big giveaway when the new site launches!
Now, for the freebie. I use this format to teach sight words each year (thanks to my buddy Cassie, who divided the words into lists that are manageable for student success). I made a few modifications to this new packet, but love how well it has worked for our kindergarten group. I recommend having sets of sight words for each list that you can order randomly each time a student tests over a list. This will ensure they know the words any way they are presented. I have also included links to the sight word slideshows that go with our lists. I use these the first ten minutes of morning meeting every day. This year, my class will begin to do “flipped learning” activities at home, and I plan to use our lists as springboards to investigative learning. My friend Jonna from The Primary Life, http://the-primary-life.blogspot.com/2015/06/follow-me-on-bloglovin.html
has me so excited about the Seesaw app for digital portfolios and flipped learning! I cannot wait to try it with my students.
Here is the file! I hope you will enjoy it very much! Let me know what you think in a comment!! I love to hear from you, and appreciate that you take time to comment.
