Hello and thanks for stopping by!

Today I am pleased and privileged to participate in a brand new Linky Party!  It is being hosted by Christina over at Sugar and Spice every WednesdayShe is all about "everything nice," and wants to encourage you to comment on our posts!  Please tell us what sparks your creativity and share in the conversation!  

Here's my "Picture Question of the Day!"

What is YOUR favorite language arts topic to teach, and what favorite resource(s) do you include in your lessons?

Musical poetry is my passion!  I can't wait to hear about yours!  

'Til then, continue to teach your children well, share your story, and hold a song in your heart!

  1. I love to teach inferencing skills! One of my favorite activities is to throw random items in a bag and having the kids make inferences about the character' straits based on the items. :)

    1. Hi Christina!
      My students LOVE when I bring out my MYSTERY CLUE BAG and they get to be "detectives!" Thanks so much for your new Linky Party and for commenting! I feel so popular!

  2. My favorite thing to teach is writing. I like to use mini-lessons from 6 Traits. Right now, we are working on procedural writing for How to Make Dirt Pudding. I enjoy planning my language arts lessons around a fun monthly theme! This month, it's all about the Earth!

    1. I use mini-lessons from 6 Traits too, Jeanine! If you have not read DIRT BOY to your class, you need to! I love to teach thematically too! I think by immersing my students in one topic, it helps them become "experts!"

      Here is the link to the book! Enjoy!

  3. I also love teaching writing! I love how much kids get into it and love it when you make it fun and meaningful. :)
    My favorite resources are mentor texts!

    1. Using mentor texts to teach different writing skills, comprehension strategies, and figurative language is one of my favorite instructional practices too! Writing Workshop is one of my favorite parts in the school day! Thanks for commenting, Cassie!
