Hocus Pocus...Keep Them Focused!

We all know that teachers have magic powers.  From eyes in the back of our heads to super-sonic hearing, we are a talented bunch, I tell you!  But this time of year, spring fever has hit, and with the end of the year in sight, we all need a little extra magic to keep us going!  So, in the next few weeks, I’m joining with my favorite intermediate teachers to put a little extra magic in our lessons and keep students engaged.

We will be swapping resources that will be just what we need to keep our students engaged during the final weeks of school.  We want to share our finds with you in a fun way – a 2-part blog hop giveaway!

Today, we present Part 1, with each blogger introducing the resource they selected to keep their friends engaged and learning in our final weeks together.  Then, over the course of the next two weeks, we will be using these resources in our classrooms.  On Sunday, May 11, we’ll be back to report on how well these resources kept our students engaged!

As we wrap of the school year and prepare for the state assessment, I will be reviewing the standards that I have taught this year.  I am excited to incorporate Kelly's Spring Themed Graphic Organizers. I know the kids are really going to enjoy using these attractive organizers as they review.  It will certainly make a daunting task a little more fun and engaging.  :)
