by Gretchen Ebright

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

This free download is a list of ideas to get your year off to a great start! I have compiled a list of 20 activities that I use during the first few weeks of school – some of these can be repeated many times through out the year as well. It also includes a list of the 10 books that I like to read in the first weeks of school.
Many of these ideas need no materials or very little materials and little to no prep time.

Please note – this is not a product. This is a compilation of ideas that I have gained in over 20+ years of teaching. Any materials needed will most likely already be found in your classroom.

There are directions for a self control activity, a team work activity, alpha ball game, first day feelings activity etc….for a total of 20!

Free Back to School Literacy Lessons K-2

Hello my friends! Have you started to think about Back to School yet? (Has anyone ever really stopped?)

It’s an exciting time of year, and I always find it easier to sleep when I at least have the first few days planned out – and that involves getting to know my students. I like to find out who they are as people, how they feel about various aspects of school, get a glimpse of their skills, and most importantly – know how they’ll be getting home from school!

Disclaimer: This activity is by no means a guaranteed method of validating a child’s transportation arrangements for one day or the entire school year, but does make a nice introduction to a graphing activity.

 

I wanted to share this ten page Back to School literacy sampler with you, so you will have a window into some of the products I use with my K-2 students at the beginning of the year.

What else is in the BTS sampler?

 

I do not want to ruin the surprise, but I will tell you that this sampler could lead you to more free samples…especially if you like Sight-Word PreEmergent (Level aa) or Emergent (Level A and B) readers with sentence puzzles and fun follow ups. 

Ok, getting carried away now. Almost told you about the crazy fun game I’m making. But I didn’t! 

I will leave you with this thought, however. Start collecting smart phone boxes.

Enjoy summer for as long as you can!

Take care,

Ida Mae, aka


FREE MISC. LESSON – “{freebie} First Day of School Parent Letter – EDITABLE”

by My Happy Place

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

These simple parent letters are designed to help you and your students communicate with their parents about the first day of school. This freebie includes letters for preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade.

This is an editable PowerPoint document. You must have PowerPoint to use this file.

Each page contains two text boxes that you can fill with your own text prior to printing. Alternatively, you can delete the text in the boxes and print the page with no text if you would prefer to hand write your notes.

You can choose to prepare these notes in their entirety before the first day of school by filling the text boxes with information about what you have planned and what you want parents to know going forward.

If you would prefer, you can type a little note in the bottom text box, but leave the top box empty for your students to fill in at the end of the day.

A third option would be to use the bottom box to hand write a quick note about each particular child and how their first day went.

If you have any questions, you can use the “Ask a Question” feature on my store page or email me at MyHappyPlaceTeachingProducts@gmail.com.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Journalism: Beat Sheet”

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

Because it is important for a school newspaper to cover all of the clubs and activities a middle or high school offers, this FREE Beat Sheet presents a succinct way for journalism students to find story ideas they can develop. Sometimes the info is quite brief, i.e. an announcement of up-coming events, so it is summarized in a column set aside for that purpose. Other times, the information sparks ideas for a news or feature piece. The Beat Sheet is an excellent way for newspaper staffs to find ideas and to plan for the next issue. Also, it offers first year students a chance to write for the paper, insuring their desire to remain a part of the journalism scene throughout their high school careers.

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

 

Product Description

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. Rather, it is the masterful manipulation of language that has the power to transform the ordinary and to immerse its reader into the world created by the author.

This HUGE bundle includes:

Each lesson focuses on a different skill set including:

– How to use symbols
– How to effectively develop themes from poetry
– Creative writing
– Creative activities to learn how to analyse

The unit includes a student packet (20 pages), a teacher packet (with 9 complete lessons), and a comprehensive answer key with annotations to poem (with 17 pages). See preview for more details.

– Phyllis Gotlieb – “First Person Demonstrative”
– Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven
– Robert Frost – “Nothing Gold can Stay”

5 – 2 PowerPoint presentations – one multimedia presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) and the second to reinforce the use of imagery and symbolism (19 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

6 – Images to project or print

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Reading and Writing Lesson”

by Stacey Lloyd

7th – 10th Grade

 

 

This complete lesson contains a little bit of everything from reading, writing, language analysis, class discussions and even options for group work.

It would be great as a back-to-school lesson, or as a one off, engaging lesson for a substitute to teach.

CONTENTS

– Three suggested lesson plans for using the resources contained within this product.

– Four unique reading passages which provide brief snapshots into the lives of four individuals on the first day of school (a teacher and four students). As you will see, these stories can stand alone, but they are also clearly and cleverly interwoven.

– Four creative worksheets to help students analyze these passages in terms of grammar, language, content and meaning.

– A one-page handout with writing prompts based on these stories.

PLEASE NOTE: All four passages used in this resources were written by Lara Ferrari: Storyteller, Copywriter, Wordsmith. © Lara Ferrari 2015

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Nonsense Word Fluency BLACKout Bingo Game (Egg to Chicken Life Cycle Theme)”

by Lendahand’s Printables

Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

Nonsense Word Fluency BLACKout BINGO Game by Ms. Lendahand (EGG to CHICK Life Cycle Theme) 1/2 Price for first 24 Hours!
*************************************************************************
Inspiration for creating these games comes from what we are studying or reading about in class. Oftentimes games coordinate with the season we are in and the holidays and customs we are studying! This week the theme coordinates with our continued unit on LIFE CYCLES via EGG to CHICKEN. Although the 100th Day happens only once, we will be utilizing this resource for the duration of the school week!

I love creating these resources because it keeps my firsties happily practicing NONSENSE WORD FLUENCY and I have seen a direct correlation in improved NWF Scores on DIBELS NEXT Tests.
*************************************************************************
Nonsense Word Fluency is no nonsense! Gear up for DIBELS Next using resources that are effective, but fun and inexpensive. The best part of all is that the prep time is minimal for you and the reinforcement of nonsense word fluency is right on target. If you are not sure about BLACKOUT BINGO, try one of my freebies before you buy.

This is up to a six player NONSENSE WORD FLUENCY GAME.
(No pseudo haters here please! LOL! Really if you don’t like nonsense words this is NOT the place to be!)

Includes:
6 BLACKout BINGO Cards
30 Nonsense Word Fluency Calling Cards
More than 60 Bingo Chips

This game is all about nonsense word fluency practice=) This little resource stands to become a game-changer in your classroom.

If you have not yet tried BLACKOUT BINGO,
please do yourself a favor and just do it!
Your Little Bears will forevermore love you for it.
I pinky promise!
If you squeeze it into your schedule and get it up
and going, let me know how BINGO works for you
in your classroom.
(Played like traditional BINGO…just play until the entire card is filled for each player.)

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Sample – Teaching Inferring “What am I?””

by Kyp McLaren

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

Understanding how to make an inference from text is often difficult for children. Children make inferences all the time without realizing exactly what they are doing. It is important to share with them that making inferences is like being a detective. You look at all the evidence or clues and put them together along with their background knowledge to come up with an idea about a situation or problem. This packet is filled with “close-ups” and pictures of 50 different creatures.

How to use “What am I?”:

Use the following pictures on a Smartboard, in small groups or individually to introduce and teach the reading comprehension strategy of inferring.

Begin by having my students look closely at the picture of the close-up. Ask them what they see or observe in this picture? What details do they notice? What do they see when looking “closely”? What might they infer this is, based on what they see in the close-up?

Next, have your students make a list of clues or evidence to support their conclusions about the close-up. Using the clues or evidence, what inference can they make about what this creature is? Have them use their evidence to support their conclusions.

Common Core Standards introduced or covered include:

RL.1 and RIT.1 – Ask and answer questions about key details in a text

SL.2 – Recount or describe key ideas or details from a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media

SL.3 – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 3 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly. (Determine the main ideas and supporting details of a text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally)

SL.4 – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

Any claims of correlation or alignment to the CCSS or WIDA ELD Standards are solely those of Tools for Teachers by Kyp McLaren and have not been evaluated or endorsed by WIDA or the NGA.

Kyp McLaren is the sole creator of this product and is not associated with the entities who created the standards.

The Common Core Standards were developed and written by the NGA. © Copyright 2010. National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers. All rights reserved.”
