Welcome to my blog site. This year I will be teaching 4th grade ELA/SS. I'm excited to embark on the new changes approaching me. I'm always looking for new ideas to get students engaged and eager to learn. I hope you enjoy my blog. Please leave comments or ideas.

Summary Check

This is a cute idea that I got from one of the instructional coaches a couple of years ago. I found it in my file folder and thought it would be great to use in our literature study we have been working on. The students have been reading "A Dog Called Kitty". They have enjoyed this book so much. I hope I don't boo-hoo when Kitty gets hurt. Anyway, I will be using this neat Summary Check tomorrow after we read a chapter. A summary check is very easy to make and if anyone designs a better one please pass it to me!

Students are to write the check to me! LOL
They are to write 2 sentences about the beginning, middle, and the end.
They had a lot of fun pretending it was a real check.

 Next, the students glued the check into their packet for
"A Dog Called Kitty". Great Assignment today!

  1. Oh, it's a CHECK check! I LOVE it! I thought it was just a check of what we've learned, but this is SO much more useful. Can I get a copy?
