This pyramid shows the effectiveness of certain teaching methods and student retention. Lecture at the lowest, 5 percent retention and teaching others as the highest with 90%. No more lecturing students, they are only holding onto 5% of the lessons you teach! Include more student led instruction where students learn on their own and allow students to teach other students.
Print-practice sign-in sheets freebie! My daughter's preschool teacher uses sign-in sheets to help keep track of attendance and give the kids practice printing and spelling their names. She used to make these BY HAND, writing out each name six times, five of them dashed! I used my computering skills to make Adobe Reader do the work and save her precious time! You can get these print-practice sign in sheets for free in my TpT store.
Free! I made this editable print-practice sheet for a colleague of mine who teaches kids with dyslexia. Enter any text you want, then print. The traceable text is smaller than what you would find on similar print practice sheets for lower grades. I use these myself for high school students whose print is so bad I couldn't read it. It made a difference, and seeing the look on their face when I handed it to them was priceless!
