The Inspired Classroom

I've enjoyed wearing many hats throughout my career... university level instructor, elementary and middle school teacher, middle school administrator, staff developer, technology instructor, independent consultant, & adult educator. In my classroom, I embrace a differentiated workshop approach. I've also enjoyed extensive study in brain-based teaching & learning and utilize these principles as the foundation for all my teaching. I love inspiring others to see their amazing potential within!

Compare/Contrast Super Hero Venn Diagram Kit

Compare/Contrast Super Hero Venn Diagram Kit

Kit contains 2 templates... use the Batman/Superman template to model the process with your class (I shine mine up on the smart board for all to see, while they're recording the information on their own page). Then, I've included a blank template for students to practice the skill by independently comparing/contrasting 2 comic book characters of their choosing. Provides quick and easy assessment data!

Transition Words for Elementary - Temporal Words - CCSS Aligned: 2.W.3, CCRA.W.3

Transition Words for Elementary - Temporal Words - CCSS Aligned: 2.W.3, CCRA.W.3

SUPER simple, super effective Transition Words poster for writer's workshop! I hang the poster in my classroom, and also make a copy for each child to add to their writer's workshop folder. I've also included 4-to-a-page mini-posters if you prefer a smaller graphic. On the day I introduce transition words in my mini-lesson, I have my students take out 1 or 2 finished pieces of work and use a highlighter to circle any transition words they've used already in their writing. We then discuss and compare "what transitions we're using already" and "what transitions we'd like to begin adding to our writing pieces." Super simple, and super effective! As always, wishing you Happy Writing!
