In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features three novel strategies that come from Amy Schwed and Janice Melichar-Utterâ€™s terrific book, Brain-Friendly Study Strategies, Grades 2-8. The strategies are designed to help children practice 6-letter, 7-letter, and 8-letter spelling words. Give these ideas a try in class with your students or at home with your children.
A few months ago 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.
