Subway Art!

Have you ever really stopped to think about what catches you eye? What you find interesting? What you stop to look at? or Take a double look at? Even more so, have you stopped to think about what may further engage your students and keep them interested? Well, if you haven’t heard about it or ever seen it, you must check out Subway Art. Just like our previous post about Wordle, Subway Art is quite similar in that it’s a bunch of cool, interesting words about any topic – be it an occasion, holiday, event, etc. You write the words horizontally, vertically, diagonally….you can even add pictures, borders, etc. You can choose any font, any size, any color! It’s all about what catches your eye! It is definitely one of the coolest things that I have ever seen! You and your students will love it! Check it out below! There is SO much more where that came from – you will be surprised! Check back here often…tons more to see!

Character Education & Religion

How is one able to incorporate Character Education & Religion?  How do we make our students more socially conscious?  At the bottom of this post, you will find a Language Arts lesson plan which incorporates the Catholic religion, Catholic Graduate expectations, and Character Education for Grade 7 students but can easily be adapted for younger and older grades.  Collaboration is the key! Hope you use it in your classroom.

Our first reader appreciation giveaway is now open!

Thanks to our loyal readers!

We published our first post on May 12, 2012, so I guess we’re a couple of days late for our one month “blogiversary” (but better late than never, right?!).

When we first discussed starting a teaching blog, we were excited, but nervous at the same time…would anyone read our blog?  Would anyone find it interesting or useful? Would we even figure out how to “blog”? We’ve learned a lot in the last month, but one of the most important things we’ve learned is that we have some awesome readers!  In only one month, we have almost 100 followers! THANK YOU SO MUCH! We have readers from all over the world…Japan, Italy, USA, UK, Iceland, France, Indonesia, and, of course, our fellow Canadians!

We are so appreciative that you take the time out of your busy lives to visit our blog and read our entries.  We hope that you find the content on this website useful to your classroom practice, as our objective was to create a website by teachers and for teachers where ideas and resources can be shared and discussed.

We are giving our wonderful readers a little gift to show our appreciation! We will be drawing for TWO $10 gift certificates to Teachers Pay Teachers!  We decided this was a good choice since anybody anywhere can use this gift certificate to download teacher resources of their choosing!

How can you enter this giveaway?  Please use Rafflecopter to enter as many times as you would like (max 8)!  We only ask that you leave a comment in this post to let us know a little bit about you!  Are you a teacher?  Where are you from?  Tell us something about you please!
