I said I would elaborate more on my favorite websites for teaching, well Flocabulary.com has been my favorite for years.  It has only gotten better.  I teach ELAR and Social Studies and it has me covered with all my subjects.  And it is so funny when I pull my kids for small groups and they start rapping the songs to me saying we learned something.  🙂   They are continually adding new skills in reading and covers all the way up to high school so if you need a hook, brain break, or use it to teach a lesson you are covered.  I have used it in my lessons and the vocabulary as my word study during my literacy block.  I use the grammar videos to help enhance the lessons I have already taught and use the activities as guided or independent practice.
