    Supporting High Needs Students in your Language Arts Program

    Supporting High Needs Students in your Language Arts Program

    What should you do with your struggling readers during guided reading?
     
    This is something that can be pretty daunting, especially if you’re in a junior classroom and you have a huge range of abilities in your class. 
     
    It’s important to remember that you will have different types of students in your classroom, and your strategy for supporting those students is going to look different depending on their academic profile.
     
    In this episode, I am talking about three different types of learners who may be working significantly below grade level in your classroom and how to best support them in a guided reading lesson.
     
    Different students need different types of support, and that’s okay! It doesn’t have to mean a lot of extra work for you. It just means you need to be familiar with those students and what they need. 
     
    Once you have your strategy figured out, guided reading lessons will be no problem at all. That’s why I am helping you get it figured out in this episode! 
     
    If you need a strategy to help your struggling readers, tune in!

    Getting Started with Guided Reading in the Junior Grades

    Getting Started with Guided Reading in the Junior Grades

    Do you need help with your guided reading sessions? 
     
    If so, I am excited to be sharing a complete plan for you to schedule your guided reading time in your junior classroom. 
     
    In this episode, I am teaching you how to set up your guided reading, and I am dispelling some myths about how to structure your guided reading time, especially as it pertains to junior grade levels. 
     
    I know that not all of your students are at the same level, and you need a schedule that can adapt to that. Guided reading should be a tool for you to use to assess your students’ progress, so let’s make that easier for you! 
     
    We’ll talk about what guided reading is, what its purpose is, and how to make it work for your students of all different levels. 
     
    If you could use some help getting your guided reading time set up, I’ve got you covered in this episode.

    If you’re lucky enough to have already been given your schedule by your principal, I have some tools to help you figure out what each of your periods is going to look like.
     
    In this episode, I am walking you through the process that I follow to plan out the subjects in my schedule according to the time requirements that we have for each subject. 
     
    By the end of this episode, you will know how to plan out your week to make sure that you are fitting everything into your teaching schedule.

    What Makes Canadian Teachers Unique?

    What Makes Canadian Teachers Unique?

    Have you ever found the perfect resource, only to realize that the jargon won’t work in your Canadian classroom? 
     
    Being a Canadian teacher can be kind of a struggle because so many resources are geared towards U.S. classrooms! 
     
    Nine years ago, there was a lack of Canadian teacher voices online, and that's when I started my blog, Madly Learning. Fast forward nine years and Madly Learning has grown to something that I am so proud of. The community that has developed around Madly Learning is the most amazing community out there. Thank you for that!
     
    In the spirit of that, I am talking about what makes Canadian teachers different from other teachers you see online in this episode.
     
    I also have something super exciting that I want to announce to you, so stick around until the end of the episode for that!

    How to Level Up Your Science Lessons Using Inquiry-Based Learning and Universal Design

    How to Level Up Your Science Lessons Using Inquiry-Based Learning and Universal Design

    Do you spend hours trying to come up with science lessons that are engaging and not boring? Do you end up just using worksheets because you don’t know what else to do?
     
    In this episode, I am showing you how you can use inquiry-based learning and universal design in your science lessons. By the end of this episode, you’re going to have a whole bunch of ideas for lessons that go beyond basic read and respond worksheets. 
     
    Believe me when I say that you can have a fun, engaging, rigorous science program that is easy to plan, prep, and run. Inquiry-based learning is great because it is easy for the teacher and works for all students regardless of skill or ability. 
     
    Sound too good to be true? Trust me, it’s not. You just need to know where to start, and I’ve got you covered. 
     
    If you feel uninspired or lost and you’re not sure where to start when it comes to science lessons, tune in and take lots of notes!
