Mark your calendar now for the Rock One Sock campaign. It’s a simple way to show your support for missing children and their families. Between May 21–25, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is asking you to take a picture or video of you and/or your students wearing one sock. Share that image on social media and your class could win a $500 gift card. Get the details at RockOneSock.org and click on Schools.

Would a little grant money help fuel your classroom programs? Find out how to apply for a $2,500 grant from Farmers Insurance and vote for others in the running. Up to 180 teachers receive funding, and five teachers receive grants worth $100,000. Learn more at farmers.com/thank-americas-teachers.


I think my all-time favorite read-aloud is a little book called Baby Danced the Polka. It has drama, it has intrigue, it has a dancing polka-dotted pig. What could be better?

  1. The Ghost Next Door, I read the beginning of school and every chapter ends with a cliff hanger so students can’t wait to come the next day and hear the next chapter.

  2. Elmer and the dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett – I am reading the series to my kids now. A teaching partner told me about it and I thought I would see what happens and the kids are eating it up. Love when a book, even better a series, draws them in.

  3. It has to be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I still get goosebumps every time Charlie finds the last golden ticket.
