What Worked Well Wednesdays!

Today I am working with my friends over at Kinder Tribe to bring you a blog post about what worked well in my room last year!

One thing I love using in my classroom is interactive books!  My students tended to get board with reading on their own and when they would finished with activities early they needed something to keep them more engaged, this also kept the majority of students out of trouble!  Interactive books were a lifesaver for me and the kids loved them! 


Interactive books are not only a great way to keep students engaged but also a great way to practice reading (nursery rhyme books), learning how to dress for the weather, categories and so much more!  Here are just a few of my favorites!

These books went great with our nursery rhyme units!

I loved adding this to our farm units! 

Here's a fun one to teach students how to dress for different weather situations.

A great differentiated learning book (2 books in one!) to teach categories! 

These are just a few that I have used. I also have shape interactive books, money interactive books and so much more! I plan on creating more interactive books this year to go along with more areas of the curriculum. There are so many fun ways you can use interactive books in the classroom and the kids love them!

  8. These are really great! I love the idea of practicing categories- we take it for granted that they will know these things, but sometimes they don't! Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. Yeah categories can be very difficult for speech delayed students as well as special education students

  10. I really like this idea! We use a form of Daily 5 now and I have trouble finding low level books for the kids. I can see them being able to really read these independently and enjoying it! :) Thank you for sharing.
