February 27, 2016

BrainPOP is one of my favorite tools for teachers and I’m excited to announce that I was recently named a Certified BrainPOP Educator!

Make-a-Map provides students with a space to organize their thinking and show what they’ve learned. Students can use Make-a-Map to prepare for a writing activity or to aid their thinking as they explore a new topic.
