Teaching Tip of the Week
Over the past few years I have uploaded approximately twenty instructional videos on YouTube. These videos range from 1-6 minutes in length and deal primarily with academic tips and study strategies. I am excited to announce that I have re-designed my page on the site, and I am officially re-launching it as the “Teaching Kids” channel. All of my new “Teaching Kids” videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
This week’s Teaching Tip features my first new video since the re-design, and it is called “Teaching Kids to Transition Back into ‘School Mode.’ ” Click here to watch.
If you are interested in being notified anytime I upload a new video, please add yourself as a subscriber to my channel.
In this short video I share a few tips to help parents ease their children's transition back to school. Topics include re-establishing routines, re-focusing on academics, and shopping for school supplies.
This tip is also part of a “Back to School Sweepstakes” in which Volunteer Spot, a website that helps teachers coordinate with parents and volunteers, is offering entrants a chance to win an ipad and $500 for their favorite school. If you are interested, click here to visit the group's Facebook page.

Teaching Tip of the Week
Teaching Kids How to Get "Unstuck" While Writing (Teaching Tip #106)In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features two effective strategies that help children become “unstuck” while they are writing. The first of these strategies is a familiar one, while the second is less well-known and a bit more novel. Try these ideas in class with your students or at home with your children.
