This interactive Flash puzzle helps children develop number sense and an understanding of our decimal number system. A 0-99 square has been cut into 11 irregular pieces which the user re-assembles. A printable (pdf) version is included along with questions for Getting Started and a Teachers' Resources page with implementation suggestions.
Scaling personalized learning at the district level may seem like a daunting task, and it is. But when the right conditions are put in place, schools can move beyond pockets of excellence to a truly personalized approach for every student. Building a vision with district stakeholders and creating a culture of innovation where everyone is encouraged to try new things and learn from failure while ensuring the transparency required for each person to understand their role in pursuing that vision are the foundation for aligning all aspects of the system behind your district's vision for personalized teaching and learning.

This is a lesson plan that will help educators teach Kindergarten students about 2D and 3D shapes, how to identify, sort them and design their own using marshmallows and toothpicks. Assessments and Rubrics are included to assess students on identifying, sorting, and designing 2D and 3D shapes.The image used in the Image Title was a screen shot taken from the Youtube Assessment that is linked to the lesson plan.

Teachers have taken many steps to address the social and emotional needs of their students. SEL skills, however, are often taught in a way that’s isolated from content-area instruction. Students may begin their day, for example, with a morning meeting or advisory class, or they may participate in a mindful moment.
How can schools integrate social and emotional practices into academic instruction where they can have the greatest impact on learning? Here are three simple strategies for making SEL a part of the curriculum.
High school students benefit from meaningful relationships with adults at school, and teachers can foster those ties in little ways every day.
The goals of OpenSciEd are to ensure any science teacher, anywhere, can access and download freely available, high quality, locally adaptable full-course materials. REMOTE LEARNING GUIDE FOR THIS UNIT NOW AVAILABLE!
This unit on weather, climate, and water cycling is broken into four separate lesson sets. In the first two lesson sets, students explain small-scale storms. In the third and fourth lesson sets, students explain mesoscale weather systems and climate-level patterns of precipitation. Each of these two parts of the unit is grounded in a different anchoring phenomenon.
To pique students’ curiosity and anchor the learning for the unit in the visible and concrete, students start with an experience of observing and analyzing a bath bomb as it fizzes and eventually disappears in the water. Their observations and questions about what is going on drive learning that digs into a series of related phenomena as students iterate and improve their models depicting what happens during chemical reactions. By the end of the unit, students have a firm grasp on how to model simple molecules, know what to look for to determine if chemical reactions have occurred, and apply their knowledge to chemical reactions to show how mass is conserved when atoms are rearranged.
Students figure out that they can trace all food back to plants, including processed and synthetic food. They obtain and communicate information to explain how matter gets from living things that have died back into the system through processes done by decomposers. Students finally explain that the pieces of their food are constantly recycled between living and nonliving parts of a system.
Over the summer Eric Curts updated and added some great posts and one of them was this great post about some very helpful hacks for Google that will help with your productivity and organization. I personally love #4 on the list.
Teachers can create positive learning experiences for students that combine assessment with agency, opportunity, and community building.
