Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom



The original Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom is a perennial best-seller. Teachers everywhere call it the orange bible and turn to it daily to make sure their gifted students are getting the learning opportunities they need and deserve. Since the first edition was published, author Susan Winebrenner has spent eight years using it with school districts, teachers, parents, and kids across the U.S. and the U.K. This revised, expanded, updated edition reflects her personal experiences and the changes that have taken place in education over the years. Her basic philosophy hasn't changed, and all of the proven, practical, classroom-tested strategies teachers love are still here. But there's now an entire chapter on identifying gifted students. The step-by-step how-tos for using the strategies are more detailed and user-friendly. There's also a new chapter especially for parents. Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom has been the definitive guide to meeting the learning needs of gifted students in the mixed-abilities classroom - without losing control, causing resentment, or spending hours preparing extra materials. This eBook is accompanied by a collection of files in a zipped folder.

Bullies Are a Pain in the Brain Bullies Are a Pain in the Brain



Bullies are mean. Bullies are scary. Bullies are a pain in the brain - and every child needs to know what to do when confronted by one. This book blends humor with serious, practical suggestions for coping with bullies. Trevor Romain reassures kids that they're not alone and it's not their fault if a bully decides to pick on them. He explains some people are bullies and describes realistic ways to become Bully-Proof, stop bullies from hurting others, and get help in dangerous situations. And if bullies happen to read this book, they'll find ideas they can use to get along with others and feel good about themselves - without making other people miserable.

How to Do Homework Without Throwing Up How to Do Homework Without Throwing Up



Everybody who goes to school does homework. You are not alone. And they feel just as sick as you do when they have to do it. Trevor Romain knows how horrible homework can be, and kids will see this right away as they page through this book, grin at the cartoons, and smile at Trevor's funny insights. Meanwhile, they'll discover valuable truths and pointers about homework: People who say homework is a waste of time don't know what they are talking about. The best way to get your homework done without feeling sick every time you see it is to just do it. Kids will also learn how to make a homework schedule, when to do the hardest homework (first!), the benefits of doing homework, and more - serious suggestions delivered with wit and humor because laughter makes learning fun.

Summer Succes Series for Students

KeyBookshop.com announces the Summer Success Series for Students, a 12 week series that will highlight resources to help students keep and sharpen their skills throughout the summer and prepare for a successful next school year. A new set of education ebooks will be covered each week, presenting grade level appropriate material.

Research shows that short, consistent practice and review can greatly enhance a students ability to maintain, and even enhance, their skills over the summer months. With no focused work, most students will lose some of the skills they obtained the previous year during the same months. Guiding students over the summer is one of the best methods parents have of helping them be successful in school.

Education ebooks in PDF formats are convenient and easy to use. A whole summers worth of books can be saved on a USB flash drive and carried virtually anywhere, printing only what is needed, when it is needed.

KeyBookshop.com invites anyone concerned about their student's success to investigate the opportunity to give the students the help they deserve. Here are some of the resources that will be highlighted.

CRP9781556528361 (Intermediate, Middle School)
George Washington comes alive in this fascinating activity book that introduces the leader to whom citizens turned again and again - to lead them through eight long years of war, to guide them as they wrote a new Constitution, and to act as the new nation's first executive leader. Children will learn how, shortly after his death in 1799, people began transforming George Washington from a man into a myth. But Washington was a complex individual who, like everyone, had hopes and fears, successes and failures. In his early 20s, for instance, Washington's actions helped plunge Great Britain and France into war. He later fought for liberty and independence, yet owned slaves himself (eventually freeing them in his will). This book weaves a rich tapestry of Washington’s life, allowing kids to connect with his story in 21 hands-on projects based on his experiences and the times in which he lived. Children will learn how to tie a cravat, write with a quill pen, follow animal tracks, sew a lady’s cap, plant a garden, roll a beeswax candle, play a game of Quoits, and make a replica of Washington’s commander-in-chief flag. The text includes a time line, glossary, websites, travel resources, and a reading list for further study.

10 Reasons Why PDF is the Right Format for Ebooks in Education

The introduction of the Kindle has created a heightened interest in ebooks. While there have been a number of different ebook readers available for a number of years, the Kindle seems to have captured the attention of a great number of people who hadn't considered ebooks in the past. While I believe this attention is good for ebooks in general, I believe that for educational ebooks PDF is the best format for overall use. I have put together 10 reasons why I believe this to be true.

1. Comfort - Teachers and students are already comfortable with PDF. The programs to view the files are ubiquitous. Virtually every computer in an educational setting today can open and view them. This comfort level also means that there is little or no training needed for teachers and students to utilize a PDF file to teach and learn.

2. Equipment - Schools have the equipment to view PDFs. As mentioned earlier. It would be difficult to find a computer that can't read a PDF. This means that money for new equipment is not a problem.

3. Cost - PDFs can be created easily and inexpensively. While the professional level programs to create PDFs can be relatively expensive, there are options on most platforms to create them for free.

4. Fonts - PDFs accurately display and preserve the function and beauty of fonts. There are definitely times when plain text just doesn't cut it.

5. Pictures - PDFs do a great job of displaying pictures in color or black and white. A picture can be worth a thousand words. This is particularly true in the teaching and learning process. Sometimes, a picture is worth far more that a thousand words. It is nice to have a format that can handle text and pictures seamlessly.

6. Layout - all the richness of desktop publishing documents in a format that can be shared with anyone. As with pictures and fonts, there are times when the effort and talent used to layout a document needs to be preserved. A well designed document can focus attention and guide the flow of interaction.

7. External Links - bring the resources of the internet to any document. Being able to bring outside resources to a document can add breadth and depth to that may be critical in the instruction process.

8. Internal Links - quickly and easily navigate even complex documents. As documents grow in size, the ability to navigate and locate specific locations becomes more than just handy, it is a necessity.

9. Printing - PDFs can be printed when necessary. While in many cases, the ideal method for reading document would be from the computer screen, there are times when a printed copy is still the best way to interact with it. Worksheets and activities are good examples of documents that work best when printed.

10. Cross Platform - Windows, Mac, or Linux, it doesn't matter, it just works. Educators can use the equipment they already have to bring the flexibility and convenience of ebooks to the place of learning.
