I laminated the cards "True" and "Trash" and put them on small tin trash cans, but you could use any two containers. I then printed the number bonds cards on cardstock and wrote number bonds that were true and some that were false. For instance I

I used this with my second graders. Blank forms were kept in one spot for students to fill out. When they were completed, they were handed in to me. I found this form limited the amount of tattling to what the students were really concerned about.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am new to TPT, but not new to education. I have been working in classrooms since 1993. My focus has always been Early Childhood education. I have worked in Pre-K, K, 1, and grade 2 rooms. I have spent the last eight years in first grade inclusion room (minus one move to grade two for a year).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to keep things interesting for my students. I am a firm believer in Multiple Intellingences and try to mix things up. I keep kids moving, thinking, and always working on something beneficial. Busy work in my room is practically non-existant. Also, I just finished my first year conducting Reader's Workshop. I am a converted believer! I am struggling like everyone to balance all of the demands placed on us. It sure keeps things interesting!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nothing official, just the joy, honor, and love of my students!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I recieved my BS in ECE from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1999 and my Masters in Literacy, Language, and Learning from Lesley University in 2005.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I just recently started a blog about Reader's Workshop. Check it out at http://readersworkshopconstructionsite.blogspot.com/
