## Problem Solving Journals Rock!

I like to use problem solving journals with my kiddos. This is a journal that they use only for problem solving. I use a small 8 x 7 journal with blank pages that I order through our district print shop. I like this size because it gives kids a good amount of space to “show their work” for each problem. They do one problem per page and I find this helps them focus on the problem and to do their work in a neater, more organized way that is easy to read and understand. Once I have taught students how to use the journals, I have them solve one or two problems every morning as an entry task. I prefer journals over worksheets for several reasons: I don’t like the cost or the time it … [Read more...] about Problem Solving Journals Rock!

## Simple Common Core Checklists

I designed checklists where all the standards and students fit on one page. One page each for reading, writing, language, math and speaking & listening. Five pages altogether! Here is a sample of … [Read more...] about Simple Common Core Checklists

## Why You Should Get Yourself A Set Of Learning Targets

Many states are still using the Common Core State Standards even though the federal government has said states can choose their own standards now. Things could always change again, but until then here are some ideas to consider when choosing a set of Learning Target posters: They should be language that kids, teachers, administrators and parents can understand. They should be visually interesting and easy to read from a distance. They should be well organized and easy to use. They should be made with common materials most teachers have on hand. Not ink hogs, keep color printing cost to a minimum. They should have the standard’s code number on the front … [Read more...] about Why You Should Get Yourself A Set Of Learning Targets
