ELA/SS integration

I agree--use the SS book as much as possible for your nonfiction reading. I have been integrating ELA and SS for the last 20 years and I learned that some days you just can't get to it all so you ...

6th grade novels

We do Hoot, Esperanza Rising, and Watsons Go to Birmingham and during the 4th quarter, I do either Crispin (so I can tie in the Middle Ages--I also teach SS) or The Devil's Arithmetic. Last year, we...

non-band kids

We have had troubles in the past with kids quitting band just to have a study period. If a student is IEPed, they of course have a study period in the resource room. It is hard to keep a band...

I have kids who don't take band during the day and am looking for ideas on what to do with them. It is a 30 minute period. I could have them read for AR but was wondering if anyone else had any...

Ancient Civilizations

Look at 'Horrible Histories' videos also--short, funny and the kids get a kick out of them.

CNN Student News

I start every SS class wi the news. I teach 6th grade and the kids know that we start every class with the news. I figure it is the only way some students find out about world events. I just love...

Witty and Humerous

I didn't do it as a read-aloud but my class read "Hoot" by Carl Hiaason earlier this year and LOVED it. Many had seen the movie but the book is different so it was good to compare the two. Funny...

Mummify Hot dog?

I would love to hear about the mummifying of the hot dogs and making the little sarcophagi---sounds fun!
Also---I've done the Village Game as well and the kids really enjoy it and learn.

Spelling in the 6th grade

I spend 20 minutes daily for spelling and vocabulary--using the same words for both. They are also the same words used in the novel we are reading in class. EdHelper has some neat things--you just...

Handwriting banner

My school doesn't push cursive writing either--and I'm really sad about it--nice cursive writing is becoming a lost art. I would put the banner up if you have it. My goal is for kids to realize...
