Each one of us from time to time needs a 'little something' to boost our class. The following simple lesson ideas are designed to lead into or re-enforce a lesson idea. Since not all of our books are from the same vendors, I decided to list them by time periods. If you have a lesson idea, play, or hands-on assignment that you like, send us a copy to help other teachers around the state. Remember that the material shared here is only a guide. None are perfect solutions for every problem or every classroom.
