After drafting yesterday’s #TPT post, Summer & I independently went on Land of Nod sprees (sometimes it’s like we share a brain!). This All Solar Systems Go quilt and matching bedding is out-of-this-world adorable! Sure the planet sizes and their orbits aren’t accurately scaled (that would be a big, empty quilt!), but the other details (1 AU in miles, two moons for Mars, many moons for Jupiter & Saturn) and the gender-neutral marketing are enough to win us over.

Watch this space for more deep space decor!

Pokemon Card Student Icebreaker Activity

Just in time for back-to-school!

It can act as a printable or an online editable where students can turn themselves into Pokemon cards! It has a few ‘standard’ questions like “name”, “height”, or “favorite color”, but it also delves a little deeper into student’s backgrounds. Asking them the always telling “which super power” question, or asking them how they plan to evolve in their lives for some minor goal setting. You can turn your whole class into a deck of cards.

Hey everyone! I was looking for something quick & easy for my students to do to introduce themselves (in Spanish of course) & I made this to use as a half sheet and put them on a bulletin board later:

Thought some of you could use it for your own classes. You can download it here for free: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Instagram-Activity-2041442

MLA Rules: The change is here

My colleague most recently shared with me a post by California High School teacher, Laura Randazzo, titled: 5 Things You NEED to Know About the New MLA Works Cited Format which lists some five important changes that the Modern Language Association has made as of April 2016. These changes occur in their 8th edition of the MLA handbook.

Read through her post here including how punctuation in the citation of a works cited change has become easier. Plus, you can purchase her Teachers Pay Teachers  50+ slides.
