Click to go to free bundle!
I have to be honest and say that I don't spend much time watching basketball (sorry!), but when some collaborators came up with a fun way to follow the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament (AND offer some free products), I thought it sounded like a great thing to do! 

Our collaborative group, "Tools for Teaching Teens," (Brittany Naujok from the Colorado Classroom, Technology Integration Depot, Math Giraffe, Leah Cleary, History Gal, and myself) has put together a set of brackets to go along with the tournament! Each basketball team has been connected with a set of resources for middle school and high school teachers, and you can get some of these resource for free! Here's what you can do:

1.  For now, you can go here to download your free kickoff package.  The free bundle includes 6 resources, in different subject areas.

2.  Check out the "Mayhem" brackets here and root for your favorite items! (Some of these are high priced items from our stores).  When the tournament champion is crowned, the winning set of products will be made free to EVERYONE, not just one lucky winner!

3.  Follow our pinterest board for a many ideas and blog posts, all for teaching teenage students.

4.  Check out the links below to get acquainted with the whole "Tools for Teaching Teens" team!

5.  Remember to come back at the end of the tournament, to see which set of great resources made it to the end!  You will be able to access a free download of the paid items by re-downloading the original freebie bundle - at that time, it will be updated to include the winning paid resources!  May the best products win!

Differentiation and the Brain - Introduction

It's summer-time and time to get some reading done! Myself and my Tools for Teaching Teens collaborators are going to read and review Differentiation and the Brain, How Neuroscience Supports the Learner-Friendly Classroom , by David A. Sousa and Carol Ann Tomlinson.We will each be reviewing different chapters, and those blog posts will be linked together as we go. If you're interested in learning more about this book, check back and follow the links to the different chapters:) I'm going to give a quick review of the book introduction here, and then later today I'll be reviewing Chapter 1. According to the authors, differentiation is brain-friendly and brain-compatible! They describe the rise, fall, and rise of differentiation, starting with the one-room schoolhouses, where teachers taught all subjects to all students, of all ages, and HAD to differentiate - there was no other way! As the country's population grew, public schools grew, and students were separat

Love to Doodle (and a freedbie)

Exponents Color by Number For most of my school life as a student (and even as an adult, during PD), I have really liked doodling! During lectures, would help me focus, but also give me something to make me look busy, so I wouldn't get called on in class! I always hated being called on and almost never participated voluntarily:) I liked to draw cubes, rectangles, squiggly lines, etc, and color in different parts of the doodles. Download this freebie:-) I really wanted to make some color by number activities. Since I am not good at creating actual pictures, I decided to make my color by numbers similar to my random drawing/doodling. My Exponent Color by Number is most similar to my past doodles, but I thought it was a little too random, so I started using actual shapes. The Integer Operations Color by Number (freebie), as well as most of my other color by numbers are more structured, but so much fun for me to make! Computerized doodling! Anyone else
