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.
