Calling All ImagineIT Teachers

What did I do all day?? I worked on the final parts of my Professional Growth Plan or PGP. I have my final meeting next week when we come back from Spring Break. So my focus this year was on higher level questioning. I started at the beginning of the year writing questions here and there for all subject areas. I wasn't too happy with the results so I started only writing questions for reading. My goal was to get a whole set complete by the end of the year. Well ta-da...I did it! I have 5 questions for each lesson of ImagineIt, yep all 6 Units! If you are an ImagineIT teacher please feel free to pick up the document and use it for youself...

Click here to get the 8 page document with all 6 units!

I wanted to share the way I organized all these great questions...

I found this note card organizer from Target. I used white labels I also got from Target. On the front of each tab I used a label that says the unit and the theme. On the inside of the front tab I used labels to show all the stories in that unit.

Sorry for the blurry picture. I couldn't get the camera to focus. After each tab I placed 5 note cards, for the 5 lessons in each unit. I used rubber cement to glue down each of the questions from the document. It looks like this:

I am so glad I got this done. I hope some of you can use this. Just a reminder that I have a chance for you to get free April Math Centers on my previous post. Make sure to check back on Thursday because there might be a little surprise for everyone!

GIRL...these are fabulous!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I looked through them briefly and I think with Open Court the units are switched around, but I think they have basically all of the same stories. You ROCK! Oh, and I love your glittery name too...so fancy:)

Bling! Bling!

Okay, I'll hunker down and read this and actually put some thought into it after I can stay out of the bathroom for more than 15 minutes. This bug is BAD.

Hugs to you!
