A Conversation Board Game - This conversation board game is easy to create, but one of the most useful ones I have in my magic bag of teacher supplies. If the ones in the photos here look a bit beaten up, it’s because I’ve been using them since 1992! I have also made color photocopies of the boards and had the copies laminated, so that I can roll them up and travel with them when necessary
Flipping the Classroom - I really want to try this out if I do teach 5th or 6th grade, have some really great ideas especially if I get to have Edmodo! For ELA, would post grammar and vocab lecture videos, pose online reading discussions, and then in class would focus on small group discussions and reinforcing lecture concepts :D

Best Spanish Rice | "I'm Mexican and this is often my go to Mexican rice dish because it's so easy. I do know how to make it from scratch with my family's recipe, but this is fool proof and is quicker and easier to make. NOTE: I've made this with green salsa in place of the red salsa and it tasted equally good."
