I was really excited about the opportunity to review My Teaching Library. My kids are more engaged in learning when there is an activity or notebooking page to record what they study. I was delighted to find so much more than I expected.
Materials are available for grades PreK-12th,. Educational resources are sorted by grade, subject, and miscellaneous resources.
- Language Arts
- Character Education
- Social Studies
There are so many resources that I initially found it best to sort by grade and then subject. I was truly amazed by how much is available, and that new materials are frequently being added.
I looked at all the grade levels the site offers and wished I would have had this when my children were younger. I was concerned I wouldn’t find much for my older kids, but that was not the case.
Materials we used:
My daughter enjoys writing, but frequently complains she doesn’t know what to write about. I’ve added The Writing Center The Writer’s Block to our home classroom. The title page and instruction ideas cards are designed to fit on each side of a box that would contain the 86 writing prompt cards suited for 3rd-6th grade.
I laminated the sheets and put the instruction ideas on a ring instead of directly on the box. I also chose to print select pages of writing prompt suggestions that are more for higher grade levels. I did keep a couple of basic prompts for fun. I can’t wait for her to pull out, “Describe the best teacher you’ve ever had.” In fact, I may assign that one to my high school boys as well.
My son insisted I print him a copy of the Transcript of the U.S. Constitution. He occasionally quotes from it when writing current event reports. The complete transcript is available and includes amendments 1-27.
My daughter and I are avid bird watchers. It’s a favorite winter activity as the birds frequent our feeders. She is enjoying the wonderful Audobon’s Birds Coloring Book. Although it offers 80 species, I’ve begun with printing the common winter and early spring birds for our area. She’s trying to accurately color them without having to check her field guide.
