Magical Product Swap

I had the pleasure of teaming up with another teacher to swap products we have featured in our stores.  Kelly Malloy is a third grade from Nevada, a teacher-seller on TpT, and a blogger at
She shared her capitalization packet with my class.  Capitalization is such an important skill for my third graders in the beginning of the school year.  It is essential for them to know and recognize the proper use of capital letters.  Her very detailed packet walked the students step-by-step through the variety of ways capital letters are used.  There plenty of opportunities for student practice.  We used the ELMO document camera to display student work, and review the answers in our packets.  Thanks!
This capitalization packet is available in Kelly's store for a bargain price of $3!
I have created a free powerpoint that links directly to the skills in Kelly's the capitalization packet.  There are slides that direct the students to practice in their capitalization packet.  You can download the free capitalization powerpoint in my store, and then head over to Kelly's store and pick up the capitalization packet from her there!  It is a great way to practice teach capitalization skills to your students!

Classroom Accommodations and Modifications

A team of teachers and I are leading a workshop on classroom accommodations and modifications in a few weeks.  I would love to know from all of the teachers out there what websites, blogs, books, or other resources you have found that are truly beneficial for working with children with special needs.  I have some of my favorites, and I'll be sure to post in a few weeks when we compile our bag of tricks.  I would LOVE to hear what teachers across the country use as fabulous references.
