Student Resources & Teaching Tips Linky Party

Oh yay!! A linky party for teaching tips hosted by Miss Kindergarten!!

 Here are 3 simple teaching tips:
#1  Build relationships with your students.  If they feel respected & loved, they will work hard for you!!
#2  PLAY MUSIC IN YOUR CLASS!!! (It puts everyone in a good mood!!)
#3  Give your students LOTS of resources to make them successful.  Read below. :)

In case you haven't grabbed my Reference Sources freebie from my TPT store .... here it is!! This product includes 6 mini-posters and a sorting game for commonly used reference sources.  I post these mini-posters in my classroom.  My students refer to them all the time. 
The sorting game was challenging for my second and third graders the first few times they played it, but now they're really good at it.  It's helpful to put a sample of each of the reference sources (dictionary, thesaurus, etc.) next to the game.  Then, your students can look through the books and refer to the mini-posters to help them.
I also just posted kid friendly math reference sheets on my TPT store.  This product includes 4 reference sheets to help students with math problems pertaining to place value, money, geometry (shapes, triangles, and lines), word problems, and measurement.  I put these reference sheets in a 3-prong folder for my students.  This math folder is kept in their desk for the year.

 My students also have writing and reading folders with a variety of reference sheets to help them.  I like folders because they're a resource my students always have access to, but they can be put away.  I LOVE anchor charts, but I DON'T like clutter.  The neat freak in me can only stand to have a few up at a time.  Haha!

This final FREEBIE is a Reading Strategies Reference Sheet.  I put this in my students' reading folders.  I got this idea from a cute pin on Pinterest.  I adjusted the strategies and questions to match my reading curriculum. 
Enjoy,
