FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Smartboard Color Word Mix Up”

by Smart Kinder Kids

Pre-Kindergarten – 4th Grade

 

 

A fun and engaging way for students to learn their color words on the Smart Board! This activity can be used Whole Group, Small Group or individually and is a GREAT addition to your Daily 5 Word Work options. My kids LOVE building these words! Differentiation is key to meeting our students’ varied needs and this activity will allow for your children to work at their individual level.

Level 1 can be used for pre-K and K and first grade students (or struggling older students) to sequence letters as an introduction to color words where students build the color words matching letter for letter against the word on the left.
Level 2 allows for higher order thinking while still supporting the learner with color coded clues.
Level 3 requires the student to use background knowledge, prediction, trial and error, phonemic awareness skills, etc. to build the words correctly using all of the letters.

I hope your kids enjoy this as much as mine do! For more smartboard ideas check out my blog @ http://smartkinderkids.blogspot.com/

The Three Paragraph Essay

Product Description

This is a great way to teach students how to structure their essay properly.

The Three Paragraph Essay is a resource that is best used for novice essay writers. It is an excellent way to introduce the expository essay. The 2-page pdf document includes simple step-by-step instructions to teach students how to write an effective three paragraph essay.

I recommend using this material with students who are in grades 7-9. It is an efficient and simple way of learning how to write a proper introduction, a one paragraph development, and a conclusion that serves a purpose.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Show Not Tell Lesson Plan”

by Thinking Out Loud

5th – 8th Grade

 

 

This lesson plan has two versions. The first version is the lesson plan I used with my examples and the focus skill of verb tenses. The second lesson plan has blanks to write your own example and focus skill. The last sheet is writing stationary that can be used to showcase student work.

I use this lesson plan when my students are writing basic paragraphs with no description.

I have aligned this lesson with 6th-8th grade CCSS (Common Core Standards). I left lines under standards on the lesson plan so you could fill in the appropriate grade level standards.

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 LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Free Multiple Meanings Personal Dictionary”

by Janet Rainey

2nd – 5th Grade

 

 

I have reached some personal milestones recently on TPT and wanted to share one of my students’ favorite activities with my TPT followers!

My students love keeping track of the multiple meaning words they encounter in their readings as well as our daily discussions. I created this Multiple Meanings Personal Dictionary booklet for them when we come across a multiple meaning word that they want to further investigate.

I ran several copies of the multiple meaning template page back-to-back, stapled it to the cover page, and had students glue it into their interactive reading notebooks.

Now, whenever we come across a multiple meaning word of particular interest, we simply add it to our Personal Dictionaries.

Full size pages of the cover page and multiple meaning template have been included in this download as well as an additional booklet cover page if you prefer to not glue it into an interactive notebook.

Check out my store while you are here, and please consider following me for more engaging and educational activities!

Free Contract for Rewriting an Evaluation – Self-Evaluation

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Contract-for-Rewriting-an-Evaluation-Self-Evaluation-1199098

 

Contract for Rewriting an Evaluation - Self-Evaluation

 

Product Description

Contract for rewriting evaluations:

If your experiences are like mine, you often have students asking to redo work or to be given extra credit assignments. Personally, I believe in giving my students every opportunity to succeed. However, the sad reality is that students often decide to rely on our good and gracious nature and choose only to work after the fact. Meaning that students choose to “slack off” and retake the work later. In order to avoid this problem, I have created a self-evaluation sheet that students must complete (in detail) in order to have the opportunity to redo an evaluation. And, based on the students’ answers, the teacher can choose to allow a retake or not.
In addition, I often make students complete this sheet when first receiving a corrected evaluation (even when no retake is possible). It allows students to look at their work critically. In reality, a student who cannot identify his strengths and weaknesses won’t be able to successfully retake their evaluation or to do better on the next one.

It’s been a super useful tool for me. I have senior students who all expect to have 90% averages, which isn’t realistic. This helps me with both students, parents, and administration.

Summer PD: Part 2- Using Observations as Formative Assessment Tools

Welcome back! Today’s post is part two of my summer blog series focused on formative assessments. Last week, I gave a quick overview of formative assessments, the purpose and the importance of them, how teachers are currently using them in the classroom. Then, I offered a new perspective on how we can use formative assessments in the classroom to inform planning and teaching. This new perspective is one that I formed while reading the book, The Formative 5. (Missed last week’s post? See it here!)

Don’t see the video? Click here to see the video version of this post!

In this book, the authors introduce five techniques that teachers can use every day to formally assess their students. These five techniques are in many ways simple but very powerful ways to better understand what our students know and understand about the content and skills that we’re teaching. In part one of the series, I described these learning tools as assessments done with intention and in the moment. As we continue through the series, I would like for us to look at the assessment tools with that lens, both with intentionality and in the moment.

The first technique is observations. I know what you’re thinking, you’re saying to yourself, “Why is observation a formative assessment tool?” I personally thought the exact same thing, but as I read the book and delved more into the section about observations, I begin to understand more clearly. We make observations about what our students are doing all the time, but we don’t always formally record the observations and then take that information and do something with it later. We often kind file it in the back of our minds and utilize it later, but more often than not, we take those observations and just file them for use later. In this case, we’re going to take the observations and we’re going to use them and do something with them immediately.

Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Posters

 

Product Description

Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Poster

Learning goals are important for our students’ education and learning. When we have a goal in mind when teaching, everything else serves a specific purpose, and everything seems to fall into place. As teachers, we are asked to display these learning goals in our classroom, but for me, this wasn’t possible.

With 30 plus students in my class, I didn’t have time to write my learning goals on chart paper or display them on the board. Hmmm… what’s a girl to do?

I created these posters to make my life, as well as yours, easier. This bundle offers ALL of the senior, (grade 12) goals and is in line with the Common Core as well as the Canadian curriculums.

The bundle includes:

A 14-page checklist of all of the learning goals, which can help the teacher keep track of what’s been covered and what hasn’t.

55 Learning Goal posters (8×11) that can easily be posted on the bulletin board or the chalkboard at the front of the class.

These posters allow students to track learn the focus of the lesson.

Three strands are covered: (with the focus of each poster clearly indicated)
1) Reading and Interpretation
2) Writing and Representation
3) Oral and Oral-Visual Communication

It’s teaching made easy!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “I Can Tell the Difference Between “b” and “d” Practice Packet”

by Sara Ipatenco

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

Many preschool, kindergarten and early elementary age students mix up “b” and “d.” Though it’s normal, it’s also essential that students learn to recognize the difference so they’re able to read and spell accurately. This packet, by Sara Ipatenco, can help students notice the differences by asking them to sort the two letters in a variety of ways. Use it as morning work, classroom practice or homework.

Summer PD: Part 1- What’s All This talk about Formative Assessments?

I’m so exciting to begin my 2017 Summer PD series with you today! When I attended the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) annual conference this past April, one of the bestselling books was a new book called The Formative 5 by Skip Fennell, Beth Kobett, and Johnathan Wray, which offers teachers five everyday assessment techniques to inform your planning and instruction. Through the Summer PD series, I will be discussing each of the techniques and offering ways to get started using them in school next August. You can even catch a video summarizing the week’s learning over on Facebook or my YouTube Channel. Ready? Let’s dive right in!

Don’t see the video? Click here to see the video version of this post!

What is a Formative Assessment?

Assessing what our students know and are able to do is part of what we do as educators each and every day; however, the type of assessment we use differs from day to day. Sometimes, we want to assess our students’ understanding of the last unit or set of skills. In this case, we use a summative assessment—a tool that will allow us to assess students’ overall understanding of content and skills. A summative assessment can be a unit or chapter test, district-created benchmark test, high-stakes test, etc. Summative test results are often used to determine classroom or grade-level interventions.

On the other hand, formative assessments tend to be more fluid and vary widely. Formative assessments provide evidence and information that is used as feedback to make changes to the teaching and learning process. A formative assessment, sometimes referred to as assessment for learning, can be anything that will provide the necessary information to inform the instructional practices of teachers.

Thesis Writing Poster

 

Product Description

As any English teacher can tell you, the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. It defines the arguments and orients the reader. Unfortunately, many students have difficulty with the thesis statement. This is why I have created the “7 Steps to Writing an Effective Thesis Statement” poster.

The poster is a step by step guide on how to write the thesis starting with selecting a topic the student understands and walks them through the process until the end.

I am making the poster available in different formats for facility of use in the classroom:

– The first format measures 70 cm (27.6 inches) (easy printing) PDF
– The second format measure 97 cm (38.2) – information can be more easily read from further away (easy printing) PDF
– One smaller poster PDF
– An image format JPEG
