Does anyone have a list of other texts that can be used with Comprehension Toolkit and Primary Toolkit? I want resources that are not the ones Stephanie and Anne recommend.

Piggy Back

Reading these ideas gave me the idea to hang up posters around the room with a brief title, such as "green as a " and let kids list all the things it could be. Angry as a ..., light as a ..., etc.

How do you use portfolios to track student progress? This is one of the ways we are evaluated in TN.

Time for Sci/ SS

How much time a day do you spend in Sci and SS? I don't want to spend too much or too little. I read the book "Focus" last year and I'm wanting to implement this information.

I'm not sure which grade you are, but if you are primary, Kathy Collins' book (I forgot the name) is a must read. If you 3-6, try "Fourth Grade Readers". It also has great lessons.
