Looking for Literacy Gifts? Great Gadgets For Your Classroom?

If you want to get started right away with recycling old books into gifts, you might turn a book headed for Goodwill into aliterary clock instead. This is a craft project that requires very few skills. The only tool you need is a drill, and the materials for the clock face are from a clock kit found in craft stores or online.

Even if you don't pass this along to a friend, you could use it help your students tell time on an analog clock!

The Writer's Toolbox
This is a "game" that looks like it would be filled with fluffy story starters. Instead, it's got a wealth of creative and thoughtful ways into writing that can pique the interest of even the most reluctant writer. Many of the ideas can be adapted as minilessons, or for use in conferences with students who are stuck.
