LANGUAGE ARTS – “Scooping Words With One Open Syllable & One Vowel – Consonant -e Syllable”

Grades 1-3

by Reading on Strawberry Lane

Scooping One Open and One V-C-eScooping One Open and One V-C-e -2

Scooping a word is the same as dividing the word into syllables.
Syllables can be divided by saying them orally or by using a pencil and paper. If we orally divide a word into syllables, we usually clap the word out. For example, if we orally divided the syllables of beside, we would clap out ‘be’ and ‘side,’ and that would be two claps. If we divided the syllables on paper, we would place a slash between the ‘e’ and ‘s’ in the word ‘beside.’

So rather that placing a slash, there is another way to show the number of syllables in a word, and that is to scoop the syllables. This is how that would look: b e s i d e. Not dividing the word with a slash avoids the look of an extra letter in the word, and it also avoids the idea of students thinking the word has only one syllable since there is just one slash. With the idea of scooping with the finger or with a pencil, students can feel and see the scoops which in turn matches the number of syllables.

This packet contains 64 task cards that allow students to practice
scooping words with one open syllable and one vowel-consonant-e
syllable. You will notice that quite a few prefixes are open syllables.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Sometimes I Feel Green”

by Lynn Hubbell

Pre-Kindergarten – 4th Grade

 

Sometimes I Feel Green

 

“Sometimes I Feel Green” is a social narrative which introduces and explains the concept of behavioral escalation to students, based uponThe Incredible 5-Point Scale, a strategy created by Kari Dunn Buron and Mitzi Beth Curtis.

This short story, which includes a number of visual supports, breaks down and presents concepts to students to help them become better able to recognize, identify and manage their emotions. Coping strategies for appropriately managing strong emotions are also introduced within the text.

“Sometimes I Feel Green” can be used as a part of a plan for implementing IEP goals targeting emotional regulation or included as a proactive strategy in a behavior support plan for teaching prosocial replacement behaviors. While the content area is highly relevant within most special education classrooms, the material it covers makes it valuable resource within the general education setting as well.

LANGUAGE ARTS – “Scooping Words with Two Closed Syllables”

Grades K-3

by Reading on Strawberry Lane

Scooping a word is the same as dividing the word into syllables.

Syllables can be divided by saying them orally or by using a pencil and paper. If we orally divide a word into syllables, we usually clap the word out. For example, if we orally divided the syllables of polish, we would clap out ‘pol’ and ‘ish,’ and that would be two claps. If we divided the syllables on paper, we would place a slash between the ‘l’ and ‘i’ in the word ‘pol/ish.’

So rather that placing a slash, there is another way to show the number of syllables in a word, and that is to scoop the syllables. This is how that would look: p o l i s h. This way not dividing the word with a slash avoids the look of a misplaced letter in the word, and it also avoids the idea of students thinking the word has only one syllable since there is just one slash. With the idea of scooping with the finger or with a pencil, students can feel and see the scoops which in turn matches the number of syllables. 

This packet contains 64 task cards that allow students to practice scooping words with two closed syllables.

Simply print and cut along the guidelines. One idea is to print on card stock or on colored paper. Laminate and use them again and again and keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.

Canada Themed No-Prep Printables for Literacy Review (and kids’ thoughts on Canada Day)

Blog Post - Fun, NoPrep Canada Literacy Activities and Canada Day conversations with the little people!

Hello my friends! Here in Ontario, we have one week left of classes. At the end of the school year, I like to take some time to discuss Canada Day with my students. For the age group I teach, their perceptions of Canada Days past can be quite entertaining:


That Fun Reading Teacher's student - funny quote on Fireworks #kids say the #darndest things! That Fun Reading Teacher's student's view of #Canada's beginning

Canada Day is clearly a memorable experience for even our youngest students, whether it be of fireworks, time with family or friends during the day. Whether we are retelling a story that we have read together, creating our own adventure, or discussing a personal experience, there is a logical sequence of events and words that match: first, then, finally (or whichever vocabulary you have decided to use!) (For a post about using the 3 part graphic organizer with young students, and a freebie, click here!)

Here is a fun Canada Day story that started orally with a reading buddy who helped sort out the three basic story parts before the pictures were drawn (and was duly thanked!)

Canada Read and Write and More - Graphic Organizer

These no-prep printables come from Canada Read and Write and More, the first set of what I have started to develop as a series. Here is the Canada themed and Canada Day writing paper:

LANGUAGE ARTS – “Scooping Words with Two Closed Syllables”

Grades K-3

by Reading on Strawberry Lane

Scooping a word is the same as dividing the word into syllables.

Syllables can be divided by saying them orally or by using a pencil and paper. If we orally divide a word into syllables, we usually clap the word out. For example, if we orally divided the syllables of polish, we would clap out ‘pol’ and ‘ish,’ and that would be two claps. If we divided the syllables on paper, we would place a slash between the ‘l’ and ‘i’ in the word ‘pol/ish.’

So rather that placing a slash, there is another way to show the number of syllables in a word, and that is to scoop the syllables. This is how that would look: p o l i s h. This way not dividing the word with a slash avoids the look of a misplaced letter in the word, and it also avoids the idea of students thinking the word has only one syllable since there is just one slash. With the idea of scooping with the finger or with a pencil, students can feel and see the scoops which in turn matches the number of syllables. 

This packet contains 64 task cards that allow students to practice scooping words with two closed syllables.

Simply print and cut along the guidelines. One idea is to print on card stock or on colored paper. Laminate and use them again and again and keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Fluency Progress Graphs”

by MsJordanReads

Do you have students who need regular fluency check-ups?

Visual representations of growth and progress are powerful influences on student motivation, and allow for opportunities of celebrating growth as readers!

These Fluency Progress Graphs are perfect for monitoring of oral reading fluency progress! Each week students can read a passage and the teacher or student can graph the progress of words per minute (wpm) on the chart! You can make it a line graph or a bar graph, you decide the format and fill in your own numbers (on the line or in the boxes!).

**Use these graphs in conjunction with my FREE “What is Fluency?” Student Reference Sheet

Different versions of these progress graphs are available as part of a larger 70-page fluency unit called “Fluency Boot Camp.” Check it out in my TpT store (link below)!

LANGUAGE ARTS – “Phoneme Subtraction”

Grades K-2

by Reading on Strawberry Lane

This fun print and play activity will help students master the skills of phonemic deletion/subtraction and reinforce phonemic awareness, which is the ability to hear the smallest unit of sound. Students will read a word and then subtract a sound thus creating a new word. 

Also, this activity targets initial consonant blends and consonant digraphs such as bl, ch, cr, sm, th, sh, and more. There are two game boards (colored/black and white versions) and 92 task cards designed to engage learners. You may use this game board or any game board you have. Or just use the task cards alone, and the student with the most cards at the end wins.
