"Quizlet.com might help with getting your kiddos to practice the terms once they've been introduced. There are a few different games they can play. My kids like to compete for the best times/highest scores."

Lesson Study Project

We can collaborate together to build a lesson together, teach the same lesson in our classes, observe (with tech) the lesson being taught, and critique the lesson in order to make it better.  This is the basis for lesson study.

First Unit-Human Geography and Vocabulary Help

How do you all tackle teaching this much vocabulary at the start of the year? I would love some ideas and resources if you have already found what works best. I will post my lessons as I finish them as well. See More
