Kidspiration In The Classroom

We’ve got new books in the library.   Kidspiration in the Classroom for Reading, Writing, and Math.  The books have tons of lesson plans on how to use Kidspiration 3 for instruction.  Remember – Kidspiration is one of the most powerful tools we have for non-linguistic representation (you remember Marzano?).  The books come with a CD which has a pdf file of the lessons on it.  I have also placed a copy of the files on the media drive (y: drive).  If you need a refresher on how to use Kidspiration, let me know.  I would be happy to sit down and go over it with you.  If you would like me to co-teach a lesson using Kidspiration, I’m sure I can find or make an appropriate template for your class.  If you question the use of Kisdpiration for instructional or  remdiation activities, tak a look at this case study published by Inspiration.  The case study tells how a teacher at John Tyler Elementary (here in Portsmouth) is successfully using the software application.
