I feel we have to approach education with the determination to affect each and every one of our students. The mentality of achieving "success" after reaching one child isn't enough.

Teacher Resource Book Reviews

One of my favorite books is called Teaching First Grade by Min Hong. It's a very easy read. It tells how she sets up her class at the beginning of the year. Other chapters are on Homework that Works, Parents as Partners, Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, and End of the Year. Although your teaching style may be very different, it's interesting to see what works for others, and it often spurs good ideas of your own.

I really like the book Four Square The Total Writing Classroom by Judith S. and Evan Jay Gould. I also have the book Four Square Writing Method by the same authors. The first one has some great activities for working with words. Some things it deals with are adjectives, helpless verbs, using a variety of words, etc. I haven't had time to use a lot of the activities but am looking forward to. The second book teaches writing using the organization of four squares. I like it too!
