    Fascinating information about Memorial Day and Veterans Day is presented in an easy to read, organized format. Students will summarize this info in unique Venns and timeline fill-ins. Went straight to the source while researching this topic and interviewed a historian in the "birthplace of Memorial Day" (Waterloo, New York).

    FREE summer reading for you and your own children

    Get ready to be entertained while you educate your children.  Woody's World -the story of a boy during the Great Depression is a fictionalized account of my father's escapades growing up in Princeton, New Jersey, as his family went from comfort to poverty in a few short months.  Beginning with his carefree life with his friends, Woody's World takes readers on a trip through 1929 and 1930 as Woody evolves into a responsible member of the family while his father travels away from home to find work.  Sometimes his adventures are a bit dangerous, sometimes involve political commentary as his friend becomes hurt by Jim Crow Laws, and at other times they are funny. Picture an overturned train loaded with live pigs while Woody tries to bring one home so he can have real meat for dinner - yes this actually happened! In fact 90% of the events depicted in this book actually happened.  See my listing for a complete list of topics covered.

    I offer this FREE to my teacher friends for your summer enjoyment, but also so you can see how this might be used in your classroom.  I have developed a complete 8-week learning guide for differentiated instruction that will help you to develop interesting plans and activities for your students.  The learning guide is available HERE.

    After you run this valuable resource through your board (if necessary), the paperback books are available directly from me for $8.00 each plus shipping.  For more information, contact me through my store, All-American Teacher Tools (click on Ask a Question) - just trying to eliminate spamming from my email this way!


    FREE MISC. LESSON - “Today in Tutoring Freebie”

    by MrsTech
    1st - 8th Grade

    In an effort to communicate with parents, I always send home a "Today in Tutoring" note so that parents know what we covered. I also like the ability to remind them when the next tutoring session is and if there is anything they need to know about. This is a PDF document that prints two per page.

    Got a second grader going into third grade? More than likely, they've already been introduced  to the concept of multiplication. To keep the concept from "washing away with the tide like a sand castle", use this beachy fun Read, Draw, Write resource to firm up their understanding of multiplication as equal groups. Teachers...this would be a nice little packet to send home with the kids for the summer.

    FREE MATH LESSON - “Free 5 Little Speckled Frogs”

    by Differentiation Station Creations
    Pre-Kindergarten - 1st Grade

    FREE Five Little Speckled Frogs
    Interactive Story Book and Frog Manipulatives
    Everything is available in Color & B/W!!

    - This is an interactive storybook to go along with the song, “Five Little Speckled Frogs”.
    - This song is great to help kids count down from 5. Use the interactive storybook with frog manipulatives to practice one-to-one correspondence and numeral recognition.
    - Use this book in a shared reading format. Students can practice reading the book and identifying known words in the text.
    - Place the book in a center to allow students to continue reading, counting, and interacting with the text.
    - As we count backwards and lose a frog in each verse of the song, students are practicing subtraction!
    - It is fun and builds literacy skills and number sense!
    - Use the bottom page as part of the book, or as a counting mat! 
    - Everything available in color and black & white.

    See my blog, Differentiation Station Creations, to see it in action!
