The Cone of Learning from the 3rd slide is for a lesson on study skills that I used last year and plan to do again. **Edit (8/6/12 7:30 pm) I just found out the Cone of Learning has no basis in research. Debating if I should white out the percents or toss it entirely.
I also found these two comics:
All of the pages in color I printed at Staples (I don't use enough color ink at home to justify the expense and the one color printer at school is sooooo slooooow). So of course, I walked around and bought a few things while I was there!
Penny folders (limit of 10, even for teachers) for homework- trying a binder system this year that I'll share once I have an actual plan. My favorite pens for half price. Tape since I'm planning to do foldables and flappers that will need to get taped into the binders. Sheet protectors also half price, one per student to use as personal dry erase boards.
