"Each book in the series is organized around four activitiy-based sections: Relationships, Organization, Assessment, and Reliables (R.O.A.R.). The authors show how to build successful and respectful relationships, establish a safe and organized environment, involve students in their own assessment, and use tried-and-true activities (reliables) to keep students engaged in the classroom. The authors' best ideas are presented in two 3-book sets - three for primary teachers and three for intermediate teachers: * Practical Ideas to Start Up the Year: for when you are just getting to know your students * Practical Ideas to Spark Up the Year: for the middle of the year when you need to get yourselves and your students "fired up" * Practical Ideas to Wrap Up the Year: for the end of the year when you are wrapping things up."--Publisher's website (www.portageandmainpress.com).
