Non-Standard Measuring with Kahoot

We are working on Non-standard Measurement in First Grade.  So I created the Kahoot Game below:
                                                Non-Standard Measurement
Put the link for the game in Google Classroom.  The kids just click on the link, add in a code and choose a nickname.   They love Kahoot!

Enjoy :)

So I am going to use Screencastify this week with my kiddos.  I want them to record themselves reading a story on their chromebook.  Throughout this year, I plan to have them use this tool to document their reading progress and I can use these recordings at Parent Conferences or even in IEP/RTI meetings.

Common Curriculum Planbook

Image result for quotes about lesson planning

So I found a wonderful online planner this summer and I LOVE it!!!  It is a planbook that can be shared with as many teachers as you want.  It allows for real time collaborative lesson planning and it is Free.  I am mentoring a first year teacher and this online tool is a wonderful resource for sharing ideas.  There is a pop up CCSS section and you just click the standard and it is in the plan.  All your electronic resources can be easily inserted into the lesson along with photos of exemplars.  Teachers can insert comments on any part of the planner.  Here is the tool bar and all of the gadgets.  Enjoy :)
