Get Moving and Learning: Kid's Co-op Linky for April 27

Hello, All,  Thanks joining me and welcome to the Kid's Co-op Link up--the place for you to link up your kid-related posts and check out tons of fun ideas too. Each week I'll be featuring my favorite ideas here too. I'm a teacher, so I'm always on the lookout for some sweet teaching goodies that would work in the classroom. I'm leaning towards insects for next week!

This week, I'm blogging on movement in the classroom. Really, those standardized tests are the worst for our active kids. It's tough being confined to a seat with only two sharpened pencils. In my course titled, The Creative Classroom {My Courses}, I share many ways to get children moving while meeting your goals.

One literacy technique that I just love is dramatic reading. It's really simple. As you read a picture book to your students, invite them to stand up and act out what you're reading. This is so fun when you read picture books with a science connection. Your students get to get up and move and move like a butterfly or swim like a fish. And.... even high school students can take a moment to act out what they're reading. It's a way to improve comprehension. Check out the Get Moving Linky Party to find more ideas for getting our kiddos moving.

This week, I'm featuring three bloggers who linked up to the Kid's Co-op last week. I choose these three because each one illustrated that learning doesn't just take place while students are sitting behind a desk. Truly, the world CAN be our classroom.

Be sure to visit these great blogs.

Beautiful Somehow shares how little children can do big things. They learn lots just hanging up items on a clothesline at their level.

Then in, Preschool Projects we see that movement is fun, and a little bit of ribbons can lift the mood. Check out this blogger's crafty directions too.

Finally, in Taming the Goblin, we learn that W is for Woodland Walk. I couldn't agree more. All teachers should take their children outside. You may just be surprised how many woodland animals you can find just outside your classroom doors. {Check out my Woodland Writing Craftivity}

Just add your link below and if you link up, add this Kid's Co-op badge to your site to show your support. I'll be looking for more classroom inspiration next week and I hope to feature you. Thanks!


Enjoy and thanks for joining the "school" at Sweet Tea Classroom!
