Teaching Tip of the Week
In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. At the beginning of each school year, I have my students set 3-4 individual reading goals, and together we set a class goal - to become quality readers. This class goal involves following the six recommendations listed on a “Quality Readers” chart that I share with my students and that we later sign during a special ceremony. I describe these six recommendations in the video. Give these ideas a try in class with your students or at home with your children.
A couple months ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the “Teaching Kids” channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' " Each 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.
If you are interested in being notified anytime I upload a new video, please add yourself as a subscriber to my channel. If you have any suggestions or requests for new videos, please feel free to contact me.

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.
