What Would You Do? Journal Writing

What Would You Do? is an American television news magazine and hidden camera show

 broadcast on ABC since 2008 as part of the Primetime series. The series is hosted by news

 correspondent John QuiƱones.

I love this show!
Using hidden cameras, What Would You Do? establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business.

A Kid's Guide to Tricky and Sticky Situations. Flat bike tires, forgotten homework, obscene phone calls—more than 70 situations kids could encounter when they are on their own.
I like to use this book to teach life long lessons and to practice daily writing skills. It gives great advice on what should be done in confusing, ambiguous, dangerous, or unexpected situations at home, school, or out on your own. 
I was inspired to create my own What Would You Do? Pack. A blank template is included in the pack so students can create their own scenarios to use with partner writing etc.

Train Your Brain Vocab Building app helps students boost their vocabulary by applying various study techniques. 
There is a Lite Version or a Paid Version ($4.99) of this AWESOME App @ iTunes or Google Play for Education!
I plan to use the Lite version with my advanced 2nd graders. 
This app would be great for grades 2-12!

Train Your Brain Vocab Building app helps students boost their vocabulary by applying various study techniques. This interactive app is designed in a quiz format and covers following topics: 

1. Alphabetical Order

4. Antonyms 
5. Combi-Words 
6. Spelling Errors

The app has over 350 questions that cover over 5000 words. 


On the completion of each test the user is given a summary of questions answered correctly, incorrectly and skipped along with the time taken on each question. Every question can be reviewed and all questions have an explanation of the answer. 


An interactive pie chart displays current progress for each topic. You can touch the different color slices of the pie and choose if you wish to answer only incorrectly answered questions, unattempted or correctly answered questions. This feature is very useful to achieve 100% score in each topic. 

After you have practiced all types of questions, you can take a Mock Test with 50 questions. The Mock Test has questions selected randomly from each topic. Scores for the mock tests taken in the past are displayed in a bar chart. This is a great way to track how you are progressing in mock tests. There is no limit on how many mock tests you can take.
