Curriculum Corner

  • Listening Centers: Did you know you can save a YouTube video as an MP3, burn it to a CD, and use it in your listening center? Well, Craig Robinson figured out how to do this! Use the website YouTubetoMP3 to do this!
  • Writing Centers: Instead of running off tons of paper and having kids start over each day, Rachel Salda has page protector packs where she stuffs the worksheet, the marker, and the eraser in one packet. This way kids have ONE thing to carry or handle during transitions!
