Spelling mistake....

Last week we were studying the "sh" digraph. Our spelling word was "shirt". I asked one of the students to spell it out loud. As you can imagine, a key letter was forgotten when the student...

I teach at a middle to upper-middle class school--not Title I, so can I still put in for a Donor's Choose? I've heard conflicting answers to this question, but have several projects in mind if this...

We did...

To kick off a "green school" event, we read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss--one of my favorites! This book was perfect for the span of ages between K-5 because it can be interpreted on so many levels.
