TESTIMONIAL FOR INTERACTIVE LEARNING STRATEGIES:
I used the "Lock in your answer" activity Friday with my reading class....struggling readers and writers....and they loved it! They were so cute tapping their desks and "locking in" their answers! We had so much fun! Such a simple idea and yet so effective! I will be anxiously looking forward to volume II. Please let me know how I can get a copy when published! N.

This ebook is a collection of 35+ teacher-developed/kid-tested activities that can be adapted for Grades K-8. The lessons are extremely teacher friendly, with little or no preparation needed. Kids love the upbeat nature of the activities. Reach even the most reluctant learner with "Prove it to Shoot it!" OR "Who Let the Dogs Out?"
There are strategies for vocabulary instruction ("Heads Down, Word UP!" Red Rover, Red Rover: It's All Relative."). There is a section dedicated to comprehension strategies ("Song Summaries," "Stop, Drop and Draw").
The last section has activities for review and practice ("Draw, Spell or Lose," "Deal or No Deal," and a fun game to play with bubble wrap, called "Poppin' Products." ....and who doesn't love popping bubble wrap?)
Reproducibles are provided for activities requiring graphics and/or charts. HARD COPY EDITION ALSO AVAILABLE AT: www.sos4teachers.com. MORE TESTIMONIALS:
