Part of my job as an academic coach is to provide my teachers with the best resources possible.  Who has time to scour the internet looking for lessons?  Who has time to ensure that each item is actually based in good teaching?

Here's where I come in: I am sharing some of my favorite websites and resources that I use in my own teaching.  Check back often and even subscribe, as this list will continue to grow!

Kindergarten- 2nd Grade Specific Resources

  • Marshmallow Shapes: My kindies have loved building 3D shapes with toothpicks and marshmallows.  This resources includes student recording sheets and cards to help students.  Most of the marshmallows end up on the toothpicks!

  • Pumpkin Teen Number Puzzles: These are from the Stem Laboratory (one of my favorites!).  Cute pumpkins that show word form, base ten form, picture form and digit form.

  • Counting by 5 Space Puzzles: Who doesn't love space?!  These adorable puzzles encourage students to count by 5 by putting the puzzle together!

3rd Grade- 5th Grade Specific Resources
