Teaching Extras… what an amazing section. However, when searching for words to accurately describe it (minus “amazing”), I was at a bit of a loss. More correctly, I was at a loss for concise articulation that wouldn’t make my English teachers bow their heads in embarrassment. Somehow the “all the fun, miscellaneous, finishing touch pieces that you need to outfit your class and daily lesson plans section” just wasn’t doing it.
But that’s exactly what it is — and more.
The Teaching Extras section is a treasure trove of items, from book marks to recipes and field trips, that help bring your lesson plans and classroom to life. In addition to versatility, one of it’s great features is that the materials are relevant year round. Here are a few ideas to try out:
• Newsletter Forms – summarize the year’s success or future plans
• Student Portfolios – display themed-documents or special group activities
• Classroom Signs – perfect for creating classroom learning centers!
Whether you’re starting up or winding down, it’s an opportune time to explore our Teaching Extras. We hope you enjoy all this section has to offer.
