Classroom resources collection

Here are ten resources that I plan on using in my future classroom. The lists helps promote an effective learning environment in order to accommodate the different needs of all students

One Big Heart: A Celebration of Being More Alike than Different by Linsey Davis, Lucy Fleming, Hardcover | Barnes & N...

One big heart is a book about kids celebrating that they are more alike than they are different. This book as a range from different skin, hair, and eyes in a multitude of colors to different personalities and interests. I would choose this book to put in my classroom library because it demonstrates that not one person looks the same, but every person has things in common with another person making them the same. It demonstrates to the students that they should celebrate not only their differences but most importantly their similarities. ​

Understand the Basic School Rules

Understand the Basic School Rules with this WonderGrove Kids animation. I will use this video on the first day of school to help remind my students what is expected of them. I will choose to use this video rather than me telling them what is expected because this video will grab their attention which will lead to them wanting to listen and learn rather than hear their teacher talk.

Trusted Teacher Resources, Lesson Plans and Worksheets for Grades K-12 - TeacherVision

TeacherVision provides teachers with expertly curated teaching resources and printables across all subjects for grades pre-K to 12. I like the website teacher vision because no matter what grade you are teaching they have activities, assessments, book guides, classroom tools, daily warm-us, and so many more things for you to use as a teacher. You just click on the grade you are teaching and you will find everything you need.

For Parents | Reading Rockets

This website is great for parents to better understand what their child needs to continue their academic growth at home. The website has tips, videos, and informational activities for parents to either do with their children or do by themselves so that they can better understand and help their child in what aspect of their learning that they may be in.

Different Learning Styles | Time4Learning

Being able to identify a student learning style is one thing but actually know how to help them better understand how they learn and ways to help them is another. This informational article will help teacher, parents, guardians, aunts, uncles, etc. learn what their student or child needs to help them better understand and remember the material that they are taught.

All About Acceptance (song for kids about accepting others)

For elementary aged children they are only around people that are the same as them at home. Once they enter elementary school they are around children of different race, religion, and beliefs, and it is important for them to learn to accept others even though they may be different from them they are all still special in their own ways.

ABCs of Kindness by Patricia Hegarty

The ABCs of Kindness is a book with a diverse "cast" of children that show everyday acts of kindness and generosity through many different illustrations. This book has a different act of kindness or generosity with every letter of the alphabet. I would choose this book to be in my classroom library, because it helps kids understand the concept of empathy and compassion for every person. Whether they have disabilities or are a different race this book includes everyone. It not only helps the students learn their alphabet but also teaches them valuable life lessons. ​


The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson

This book demonstrates that there are many reasons that people feel different. It encourages children to find the beauty in their own lives and to share it with the world. Maybe it's how you talk or look, or where you're from; maybe it's what you eat. It shows that it is not easy for some people but once they do take those first steps to being comfortable with who they are they start to realize they aren't the only one. I would put this book in my classroom library because it lets those students that are "different" than most of the class start to feel heard and can relate to something and possibly look up to something. Then they can start to feel comfortable with who they are as a person and know that they are loved by many people around them.

IXL | Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Spanish

IXL is the world's most popular subscription-based learning site for K–12. Used by over 11 million students, IXL provides personalized learning in more than 8,500 topics, covering math, language arts, science, social studies, and Spanish. Interactive questions, awards, and certificates keep kids motivated as they master skills. I would provide this website for my students to have access to have at home to be able to continue working on activities like we are doing in class. This also gives the parents an opportunity to be apart of their Childs academic success.

This manual goes through the roles that school counselors, social workers, nurses, special education professionals, administrators, teachers, and other school personnel have in helping children. This includes recognizing, reporting, and preventing child abuse and neglect. The manual also has many resources such as child protective services, The role of professional child care providers in preventing and responding to the child abuse and neglect, and the role of first responders in child maltreatment cases.
