As teachers, we all strive to get our students to really think about the skills we are teaching them each week. Sometimes with how much we have to plan for in a week, it can be difficult to remember to spiral those skills during intervention, morning work, or literacy centers. Or maybe you had a really good activity you used last year, but you can't seem to find where in the heck you put it...it's ok...you can admit it's true....
