Blog On Fire

I'm so excited to have received the Blog on Fire Award! Thank you Denise from Sunny Days in Second Grade. I have to tell you seven interesting things about myself because of this honor. I have decided my blog will only be about teaching ideas and not a blog about my personal life. I am making an exception for this award, but this will not take the place of my weekly teaching idea. So her goes:
1. I'm terrified of cats. I think it's because I watched the movie "Strays" when I was a kid. 2. I love to make lesson plans. I would rather plan for lessons than watch TV. 3. I’m obsessed with finding every education board on Pinterest. I have found almost 500 so far. 4. I once taught reading in prison. 5. I ride a motorcycle with my hubby. 6. My most embarrassing moment was when I was a teenager and had a wardrobe malfunction on stage. 7. Washington and Oregon are the only two states in the U.S. that I haven’t visited.

Here is a bonus teaching idea for you. This is an anchor chart I made with my students to teach transition words for writing.

  1. Thanks for sharing! This is a great comparison that I think my kids will catch on to quickly!

  2. You're welcome and I'm so happy you like it. It seems to really help my struggling students.

  3. Nice article! I will bookmark this site ASAP.

  4. Congratulations Selina! Hopefully this year or next time your blog can be more amazing and receive the award again.

  5. I FINALLY made this for my classes. I actually had each group create one color of the stoplight before combining them to one big chart! THANKS!

    1. That sounds fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing.


  6. This is a great idea! I made it for my class. Thank you.

  7. This is a wonderful tool to use with the students. Can I use the traffic light made by your students for one online activity my partners and I are developing? Thanks in advance for your contributions and answer.

  8. Great! Thanks for sharing the information. That is very helpful for increasing my knowledge in this field.
