Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Parts-of-Speech-Grammar-Circles-Superhero-Themed-1919542

 

Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Superhero themed Parts of speech Grammar Circle Unit

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit grammar in with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages and then we would correct them together. It was tedious and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and Learn grammar. Although, this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do other than to facilitate and supervise.

Once these circles have been implimented and students know who their group members are and what they are supposed to do, it is a great prep to leave a supply teacher.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (27 pages)

Activities included focus on:

-nouns
-adjectives
-verbs
-adverbs
-prepositions
-conjunctions
-putting in all together
-correct use of pronouns
-who and whom
-that and which
-who’s and whose
-that and who
-pronoun case
-pronoun agreement
-active and passive voice
-verb tenses (present, past, future)
-verb uses (consistency in verb tenses)

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their own work and learn from one another.

Also included are free Superhero Themed Parts of Speech Posters to decorate your class.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to learn parts of speech.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Why We Can’t Divide by Zero!”

by Scipi – Science and Math

5th – 8th Grade

 

 

One day, a student of mine, a mathphobic to be sure, asked, “Why can’t I divide by zero?” Promptly I gave him the answer that any good mathematician would. “You can’t divide by zero because 0 is undefined. It just cannot be done.” Well, that went over like a lead balloon; so, I knew it was time to sit and down and write out a plausible but understandable explanation that my students could understand.

That is what this two page free resource is – a sequential step-by-step explanation of why you cannot divide by zero. It starts off out by explaining what division is and how it relates to multiplication. It concludes with a simple visual to help the students remember the difference between 0 being in the numerator and 0 being in the denominator.

Is Vacation Over Already?

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

I don’t know about you, but at one time, it was a real downer for me to return to school after vacation. Stress was my middle name, I’d spend time worrying what I was going to teach, wondering about the lessons I’d have to reteach and thinking about that parent meeting scheduled after vacation. I’d get really bummed out the day before until I learned a few tricks I’d like to share.

Are Your Kids Using Too Much Digital Media?

In a long, cold winter, there’s a whole lot of digital viewing going on! Probably too much!

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently changed its digital media standards for children. (You can read about the new guidelines on my Reading Spotlight Blog (www.readingspotlight.com/blog/)

 

Do not underestimate the importance of human touch and interaction! Why not send home a gift of Reading Bingo Games for students to work on decoding words in short, enjoyable sessions with their parents and/or siblings?

 

A small cost for big rewards! Something different, something fun, something helpful for beginning/struggling readers in grades 1- 5, something short for tired and busy parents.

 

Kids will get some individual extra practice that you simply cannot provide in your busy classroom. Reinforce your lessons, or send home games with specific skills that need development for specific students. The ½ price TpT site license makes sending home copies easy.

 

This is a win—win—win–situation for students, parents, and their teachers! There are many Bingo games at my TpT Store: Reading Spotlight. Just call me The Bingo Lady! The games are clear, simple, and easy to use. Here are just a few:

Thesis Writing Activity

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

We all know that the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. This is also the part of the essay with which students have the most difficulty.

When you are able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a work, you are able to write better yourself.

Topic: Is knowledge good or destructive? The subject is interesting, and can be used along with many different types of literature, or on its own.

In this bundle, I’ve included an interactive PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:

-The definition of a thesis statement
-How to write a thesis statement (and the steps to take leading up to the thesis)
-5 examples of thesis statements, where students must identify both the weaknesses and the strengths
-10 slides explaining the strengths in the examples and the weaknesses in the examples
-1 example of a well-written thesis statement, and an explanation about why it’s good.

To accompany the PowerPoint presentation, I’ve included a student activity sheet with a list of all of the examples written in the PPT. (PDF format)

Also included is a lesson plan with details regarding the PowerPoint and activity sheet.

As a bonus, I’ve also included 2 posters listing the 7 essential steps to writing a great thesis. I’ve included an image format and a PDF format for easy printing.

-the first poster measures 70 cm (27.6 inches)
-the second poster, which students can actually read from far away, measures 97 cm (38.2 inches)

Poetry is a very subjective form of art. Some poems you love and others, you hate. What we need to realize is that this is the beauty of poetry. Poetry is not a mystery to be solved.

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Paragraph-Writing-Activity-in-conjunction-with-Frankenstein-2838019

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Very often, students have difficulty with the analysis process involved in literature. Where they not only have to analyse, but now have to apply their newfound skills to a well-developed paragraph, some students become overwhelmed with the process.

This particular activity will focus on both the analysis and writing a paragraph using the PEEL method.

Paragraph writing and analysis are two essential components in essay writing. To facilitate this process, I have created a lesson where students can become more comfortable with the revision process through modelling the proper steps from beginning to end. The lesson includes a modelling of the writing process from understanding the topic to the final draft. See preview for details

This lesson can only be used after students have read chapter 19 from the novel Frankenstein.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Math Workshop: Exit Ticket Poster”

by Spot On Teaching

Kindergarten – 6th Grade

❤ ❤ ❤ Thank you for downloading this freebie! ❤ ❤ ❤

Closure is an extremely important, but often skipped, part of guided math. Students need time to reflect on the strategies they used during work time, ask questions, and discuss strategies with the class. This is also a great way to informally assess your students to guide your instruction.

Assign each student a number. They will write their reflection on a post it note and place it in the numbered box.

Tip: If you teach more than one class, use a different color post it note for each class.

Feel Free to share this freebie with your friends and colleagues!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “RIP Said (Said is Dead) Synonyms Booklet”

by Cinnamon’s Classroom

Kindergarten – 12th Grade

 

 

Need an engaging way to get your students to replace the overused word ‘said’ (often referred to as a tired/boring/dead word).
This free sample of my Boring Words Interactive Notebook and Synonym Booklets Bundle is a FUN way to get students to expand their vocabulary and improve their writing.This free sample includes:
♦ foldable booklet with numerous synonyms for said
♦ “RIP SAID” tombstone
♦ Instructions on how to create a 3D tombstone
♦ Instructions on how to create a mini foldable book
♦ The synonyms within the book are grouped together based on meaning; and the words are illustrated to show this.
♦ The splash of color in each image helps students zero in on the part of the picture that highlights context.
♦ The illustrations not only serve to show students the meaning of a word, they serve to entertain and engage learners as well.

The paid version of this resource includes:
♦ 700 descriptive words
♦ a “RIP Dead Words” bulletin board decor pack
♦ 20+ mini picture thesauruses that come in 3 print options (foldables, small cards, large cards)
♦ an interactive notebook!

Take a closer look at the complete set HERE

The story behind picture thesauruses

I created my picture thesauruses as a way to solve a problem I was having in my classroom. I wanted my students to be more descriptive in their writing, but the traditional resource used for finding better words – a thesaurus – was just not working! Students would arbitrarily select a word from the long list provided, and often, the word selected was used incorrectly (ie. not in the right context).

I began to wonder… how could I show my class that each word in a thesaurus has a slightly different meaning? If only there were visuals to help students SEE the subtle differences between synonyms, I thought.

So I began working on solving these problems… and presto, my mini “picture thesauruses” (yep, that’s a term I made up) were born. Kid friendly! Fun! Interactive! Engaging! Easy to use!!!

How the books are organized and why:

My bundle of mini books (in the complete set) is based on THE 5 SENSES + EMOTIONS because I find that when students describe the look, smell, taste, sound or feel of an object, it just catapults their writing to a whole new level. Using precise vocabulary to describe emotions helps students add some ‘voice’ to their writing!If you want your students to expand their vocabulary, you can download the complete set HERE.
