Your Opinion, Please!

Good afternoon! Apparently I just can’t stay away from blogging for long periods of time. I might have a blogging problem. 😉

I just wanted to drop in quickly to get some feedback from my followers. If you have time, I would like you to respond to a couple of questions.

1. What products do you wish you had to promote learning in your classroom–as in a downloadable product?

2. What could you use to help prepare your kiddos for their upcoming tests? Task cards? Quizzes? PowerPoint presentations? Worksheets? Daily skill review? Bell work? And what subject?

I’m done creating writing task cards–for now–and would like to create some products that would help you and/or your students in these upcoming weeks to help them need up their skills. Leave me a comment with your wishes, and if I can help you out, I’ll get you yours for free. 😉

How does that sound?

    My kids love task cards. What do you use to prepare for the reading STAAR? I would love task cards or any worksheets you have done to help prepare for the reading STAAR.

      I don’t teach reading this year. I teach math and writing. Weird, I know. But…I’ve had requests for some reading task cards already, so I’ll try to put something together. I know kids have trouble with summary, main idea, and inferring. I was thinking about doing a few paragraphs and then using the same paragraph for inferring and main idea. One day you could use one set and then the other set the next day. Summary is harder since I would have to put together a story, but I could use some of the ones I’ve already used for my writing task cards for that possibly. I’ll figure something out! 😉 Does that sound like something you would be interested in? Helpful?

      • Jeanette says:

        Yes, that would be extremely helpful!!! Yes, summary, main idea, and inferring are what my kids are struggling with. Thank you!

  2. The first round of STAAR will be over soon, and I’m ready to dive into research. I’d love to see you make ANY materials that help teach the process of researching a topic from getting a plan, gathering materials, and putting the plan into a product.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Our school will not purchase a text book for ela. For next year, if my scores don’t get me fired, I would love anything by skill or tek. There are a lot mixed skill staar passages out there. We even have a staar maker program but when I want an exact skill type worksheet, nothing is available. My students biggest challenge, besides the two compositions, is finding a sentence that is the topic of a paragraph and then finding a sentence that is a supporting detail. Thank u for the task cards. My students love them.

    I would also like any inference lessons you have found that work really great, since it seems that most of the test covers this very difficult test. :)
