Here are links to a few of my favorite sites and sources:
Worlds of Words- One of the best places for strategies and literature.
"In establishing an exemplary teaching and research collection of the best books for young people, we address the need for story to make sense of human experience at home and around the world. At the same time, we aim to develop effective strategies for bringing kids and books together so they can embrace the similarities and differences of people everywhere."
Go Noodle- AMAZING for brain breaks-- relaxation and getting that energy out!
The Classroom Bookshelf-- an outstanding resource for finding new literature and invitations for critical literacy. This is my #1 go to blog.
