Increasing Achievement. Reducing Disruptions. Enhancing Motivation.
Dr. Spencer Kagan (All Grades)
Spencer has done it again! He’s written another must-have reference for all educators. Dr. Kagan has translated the enormous field of theory and research on emotions into a practical guide any teacher can use to make their teaching more emotion-friendly. Not only does he review the extensive research on how eliciting positive emotions boosts student achievement, Spencer provides plenty of do’s and don’ts, ready-to-use student activities, and simple tips to put students in the optimal emotional states for learning. Dr. Kagan introduces us to the Emotion Wheel, a student-friendly way to help our students understand and manage their own emotions. We not only learn why EQ can be more important than IQ to students’ success, Dr. Kagan provides a practical guide to developing the facets of EQ, including student self-knowledge, self-control, motivation, and empathy.

New!Win-Win Discipline MiniBook
Dr. Spencer Kagan (All Grades)
Win-Win Discipline is Kagan’s transformative approach to student discipline: Instead of seeing a disruptive student as an obstacle to teaching and learning, Win-Win Discipline sees the disruptive student as an opportunity for teaching and learning! Rather than punishing disruptive students, we use proven Win-Win Discipline strategies so students learn responsible ways to meet their needs. This MiniBook provides an overview of the essential elements of Win-Win Discipline, including proven preventative procedures, step-by-step strategies for the moment-of-disruption, focused follow-ups, an ABCD system for identifying disruptive behaviors, and a differentiated 7-position system to identify the needs of each disruptive student. Perfect for teachers, administrators, and schools who want a quick overview of Kagan’s approach to discipline where everyone wins. For a more comprehensive reference guide, see the Win-Win Discipline book. 144 pages. 5" x 7" MiniBook.

Communication, and Cooperation

Rob Jutras and Rachel Treaster (Grades 3–6)

New!Cooperative Learning & Science
Stefanie McKoy
Inspire the next generation of scientists! The science standards inform us what key concepts we should teach our students across four science domains. These books have ready-to-use activities and ideas focusing on those core ideas in Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Engineering and Technology. But the standards do more than tell us what students should learn, they call for scientific practices including communication, collaboration, inquiry, and problem solving. The activities in this book are all based on cooperative, interactive structures that have students work in pairs and in teams to build, deepen, and apply their science knowledge. Through interaction, students explore science at a deeper level and have more fun doing it! Stimulate students’ interest in science with these ready-to-go, engaging activities.

Team Numbers Class Set of 10
This is a great little tool to manage student teams. Each team receives their own self-standing table tent with their unique team number. A pop-up number makes it easy for everyone to see every team’s number. You can tape them down on the team table, or leave them loose so teams can use them to visually communicate when they are busy (blue side) or done with their team task (pink side). They have so many uses in the cooperative classroom: Call on Student #3 on Team #5 to share with the class. Have Team #7 present next. Send all Student #2s to the next team to ask their new team a question… Team Numbers work great with TeamMats to manage student and team numbers. With 10 team numbers in this set, you have enough for 10 teams of four students. MNT • $9
