The Go To Teacher

Today I want to say a huge thanks to my dad, Bob Willis. He served our country in the Vietnam War. He's my hero everyday and I am very grateful to have such a great role model. Now on to math! As we've moved into the Common Core the rigor has increased. With the increased curriculum you start to notice some areas that may need an extra OOMPH! My students are needing the OOMPH! in balanced equations and fact families. And I figure a party always gives me an extra OOMPH! so they are all party…

Writing Hooks: Bold Beginnings Freebie

The state writing predictor test is almost upon us. With that in mind, I happened upon this post at Two Writing Teachers blog. They do what is called "Slice of Life" posts. If you are a writing teacher or you just need some kind words of encouragement, you need to stop by this blog. You can pick up a FREE copy of my PowerPoint on my TpT store that was inspired by that post. Do you have any activities or tools to teach bold beginnings?
