Touchtronic Letters and Numbers for iPad

Who has a student who enjoys using manipulatives? Silly question, right? Do they like to use the iPad, too? Would they benefit from additional practice with CVC letter patterns or number sense? Then you simply must check out the Touchtronic Letters and Numbers from Junior Learning! I loved playing with the Touchtronic manipulatives last month!

The Power of Attention

Let me tell you a story about a student. For today, I will call her Quanisha. Trust me, that is not her real name . Quanisha looks like any other student, but everyone says she is mean. Before Quanisha begins in your class, you are warned by 3 teachers.  Watch out for that one. She always causes trouble, and is mean to the other kids.  You get introduced to her social worker, who fills you in on Quanisha's situation: the gaps in housing; the absent parents; the constant trouble in school; the rebellious older sister.

Top 10 Educational Products at ED Expo 2015

I had so much fun last weekend at the 2015 ED Expo in Atlanta.  First of all, I was able to connect with amazing bloggers from around the US. Our task,  give our opinions about products. It was amazing.   I arrived late, well really, I arrived *just* on time, but then we got lost. Can you believe it? There were so many cool things to look at, and so many exhibits, that we got lost. Thankfully, my fellow bloggers guided us to the back left corner (instead of the back right corner!) and we were set to go. Bloggers were handed a pen and a piece of paper, numbered 1-10.
