Anchor Charts

You have seen them on Pinterest, on teacher blogs, but how do you create effective ones that help develop and enhance reading skills? This workshop will examine the what, why, when, where, and how of creating and using anchor charts in your reading classroom. These will serve as instructional tools to teach literature, informational, and foundational reading standards and serve as mental models for increasing student achievement. We will explore a variety of anchor charts and analyze the critical components of effective anchor charts. As part of this class, we will read and examine the research that supports anchor charts as a 21 century skill in the reading classroom. We will also focus our attention on creating interactive anchor charts that can be utilized in your reading classroom to deepen levels of student comprehension. Join fellow colleagues for getting a jumpstart on ideas for creating and utilizing anchor charts in your classroom for the upcoming school year.

Flipping Your Classroom towards Inclusion and Differentiation Needed for All Students

Each year WE ARE SURPRISED with a new group of students ready to build our very own "school family". We all have very inclusive rooms placed together with differing abilities, development, readiness, and behavioral needs. We know academic expectations are huge and we also know that social/emotional and behavioral support in organizations, strategies, and support are needed in a classroom as we think about the differentiation needed by all students. Is it possible to make this happen? Can social/emotional practices and support be included in a classroom with high academic expectations? YES! In this course, we will talk about the various needs and behaviors of all students and how we can make our classroom support the needs of all children through classroom management ideas, visual support, areas in your classroom that support children, and many other tools, props, and resources that you can put in place immediately to give you, as a teacher, more support. Remember that there are more students in need, we are more inclusive than ever, expectations are high, and we have to find solutions to help together.

Guiding Our Classrooms to Interactive Connections, Small Groups, and the 2nd & 3rd grade teachers in Support of Children and Teachers

We know there are moments that we meet in large group learning connections needed--YES! We also know there is research that supports how children learn and move. We also know that for many of us we are in classrooms with higher ratios, less resources, and less support in general but still have to make it all work in needed BALANCE. How in the world do we make this work? HELP! We will discuss why small, guided groups are crucial and how to make programs like Daily 5/Literacy, Build/Math, and Centers/Stations come to life in what to include, what it looks like, and just how to make it work visually. We will also touch on interactive notebooking for young children and the process of portfolios and data notebooking to support this balance needed for classrooms. Your classroom can be the 2nd and 3rd grade teacher you need in support!

Using Primary Source Documents in the ELA and/or Social Studies Classroom

Participants will explore ideas and reading strategies for empowering teachers and students to discover the mysteries found in historical documents, including primary and secondary sources such as: photographs, graphic representations, maps, and other historical documents. These documents help create a visual link to the reading and learning experience. Through the visualization process, these documents serve as a trigger, helping the brain recall the strategy, procedure, genre, or skills taught in the lesson. This simple instructional aid fosters student independence and depth of knowledge. Educators will leave with "tools" and resources to effectively integrate primary sources into their reading classroom so that students can expand their knowledge of the world around them.
