Hello Fifth in the Middle followers! I am Julie from The Techie Teacher and I am so excited to be a guest blogger for Diane. Fifth in the Middle has been one of my favorite blogs to follow since I started blogging :)
I have been a 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade classroom teacher and this past year I took on the roll of becoming an ITRT, Instructional Technology Resource Teacher. It seems like a totally different career since I now service 4 different schools and do a bit of moving around throughout the week. However, I get to do fun and engaging lessons using instructional technology all day everyday!
One of my favorite technology lessons that is SO simple yet SO meaningful is my Context Clues lesson. Click the image below to take you to this FREE Google Presentation that I use to get the students to realize the importance of looking for context clues when reading AND using context clues when writing.
