Phew. I agreed to participate in this blog hop/giveaway without giving any thought to it being the first week of school. What was I thinking?! I have just barely survived my first week of school. Check out my store if you are looking for math materials at the 4th/5th grade level that have been modified or differentiated for students with special needs. My best sellers include a SMARTboard TouchMoney file and a Mystery Unit (which includes a SMARTboard file, worksheets, detective application, and MUCH MORE). I also love to have visitors on my facebook page! Stop over and say hi!
Anyway, I wanted to be a part of the Ultimate Middle Years Giveaway because I think that the upper elementary and middle school grades are often left behind in the blogging world. This blog hop/giveaway is a great way to score a wealth of great teaching tips and teaching materials! Now that’s what I call a great way to start the school year!
Your next stop in this blog hop is Fun to Teach’s – Teaching ESL – English as a Second Language Blog. The author is one of my blogging buddies, Lori Wolfe. Her blog is for all ESL and ELD teachers involved in the education of English Language Learners! I found some terrific resources such as resource-based GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Design) strategies, a whole slew of ESL freebies, and links to even more ESL resources. You must definitely check out her Fun to Teach store for more than 120 educational items, ranging from games for place value with 3 digit numbers to games and lesson plans for Spanish preterite past tense verbs. I am looking forward to using some of her materials with my students with special needs (who sometimes seem like English is not their first language ).
Thanks for stopping by (and I most sincerely hope that you find something worthwhile on my blog and decide to join in the fun!). Have some fun discovering great ESL tips over at Lori’s Fun to Teach’s – Teaching ESL – English as a Second Language Blog.
Here’s to Going Back Fully Stashed! (Oh, and stay tuned for some back-to-school pictures and data/IEP progress charts coming soon!)
