In a few months my new book Rock Your Studentsâ€™ World is scheduled to be released. The book includes over 100 classroom-tested ideas, activities, and strategies that incorporate music, movement, and storytelling to improve student learning. In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features one of the bookâ€™s engaging stories, â€œThe Story of Area.â€ The unique personality of Area (pronounced ah â€¢ ree â€¢ uh) helps children understand and remember the concept of area. Try sharing this story in class with your students or at home with your children.
Last summer I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' "
Each of my â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ videos features 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and addresses a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
