FREE MISC. LESSON – “Active Classroom Games”

by Diamond Mom

Kindergarten – 6th Grade

 

 

These are some activities that were presented to us at a Professional Development session a few years ago. We played them but we were not given any handouts to go along with them. I made notes of the activities and then gave them to the teachers in the group so they could use them in their classrooms.
As part of our curriculum, we are supposed to provide daily P.E. Since we don’t always have gym time available, these activities help to make it possible to do P.E. in the classroom. I hope you enjoy trying them out.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Addition and Subtraction Strategies for Parents: Base Ten, Number Lines & More!”

by Ms BBZ

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

This is a quick introduction for parents on four different strategies for solving addition and subtraction with re-grouping – base ten blocks, using a hundreds chart, adding on a number line, and expanded form.

I’m using this to send home to parents so they can be familiar with our problem-solving strategies and help their kids – we didn’t learn this way and it’s the #1 thing parents are confused about at conferences.

Death of a Salesman Unit (Complete No Prep)

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Death-of-a-Salesman-Unit-Complete-No-Prep-1610583

 

Death of a Salesman Unit (Complete No Prep)

 

Product Description

Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman used to be one of my least favorite plays to teach. I found it depressing, and I had a difficult time teaching it in a way that was meaningful to students. Then, I created this bundle so that students would not only learn about drama, tragedy, irony, etc. but also think about their own futures, while they are contemplating their post-secondary education. While Willy Loman’s dreams are unrealistic and unattainable, students contemplate their own dreams, strengths, and weaknesses. You will definitely have more than a few excellent discussions when teaching this play.

This unit has been conceived with the teacher in mind. It contains a Student Guide, a Teacher Guide, and a comprehensive Answer Key. All you have to do is print the packages and teach them. It’s as easy as that! I’ve also included two different options for end unit evaluations, which both contain evaluation grids and answer key. The unit is, in my opinion, visually appealing and the contents teach analysis of literature.

What the bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.) 
The Student Guide contain 16 pages: 
-Notes on the American Dream
-An anticipation guide
-An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which can, later on, be related to the play.)
-Thematic comprehension questions for each act
-Work on motifs and symbols used in the play
-Work on characterization
-Poem association (Langston Hughe’s poem)
-Notes on tragedy (Aristotle’s definition and modern definition)
-Review notes for students

Answer Key contains 29 pages: 
-Answers to ALL of the students’ work
-Introduction to Arthur Miller
-Comprehensive notes on each scene of the play (to help students understand and appreciate literary techniques used by the author)
-List of themes and how they are developed – Revue sheet
Final evaluation contains three different options:
1) A unit test with answer key. Contains 3 essay type questions.
2) A unit test – paragraph format
3) An essay. Contains essay topics, work process (steps 1…..), an outline guide, and an evaluation grid.

ALL EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS AND INCLUDE A COMPREHENSIVE ANSWER KEY.

The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:
-Includes 8 complete lessons that leave the teacher nothing to do, but to teach.
Lesson 1: Historical context and pre-reading
Lesson 2: Setting and reading (there are specific pages assigned to each lesson)
Lesson 3: Symbols, Motifs and reading the play
Lesson 4: Character chart and reading the play
Lesson 5: Reading – exploring irony and the meaning of the title
Lesson 6: Reading and a look at the difference between modern and classic tragedy
Lesson 7: Theme development and review
Lesson 8: Evaluation (Option 1 – test (answer key included), Option 2 – Essay (evaluation grid, work process, outline included)

The children fill out what they already know about the topic in the K column. Then, the children write down what the want to know about the topic in the W column.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “August FREEBIE – Classroom Management Life Savers”

by The Primary Techie

Pre-Kindergarten – 4th Grade

 

 

I am so excited to share my classroom management tools with you. These have changed the way I do reading groups. These work best with a remote clicker or you can take a wireless keyboard to your reading table. I put it on “slideshow” then go to my group. When the class is working on-task, I click to reveal a part of the picture. When they are off-task, I click the back button and they lose a piece of the picture. The kids are motivated to see the picture completed. There is a sound to notify the class that they have earned or lost a piece. These are SO easy to use and it really helps me focus on the kids at my table.

You can find this and 60 other themes in my Classroom Management Life Savers set. Click here to check it out! 

Click here to read more about these management tools! 

I am passionate about making school as fun as possible. Follow my store to see what I come out with next!

Product Description
NEW: You can now download this unit in Word format to customize and save it. All documents are available in PDF and Word formats.

One entire month of planning done for you – I dare you to enjoy Shakespeare.

I love teaching Shakespeare’s plays, and I want you to love it too. I’ve been teaching and improving this unit for over ten years. All of the thinking has been done for you. I love annotating my plays and books. I’ve taken all of the annotations made in my play over the years and incorporated them in a guide to help you guide students and help students understand. Many people (including teachers) get overwhelmed with Shakespeare because of the language. This unit has been created with the student in mind. The activities are thorough, but simple enough for students to understand and enjoy the play.

This unit has everything a teacher needs to teach Hamlet. Just photocopy and teach. Seriously it’s that easy. There’s no longer a need for hours of research and piecing together bits of information and activity sheets you don’t know what to do with.

This is a whole, complete unit, from scene summaries, important notes and annotations notes to help students understand what they are reading. I have also included an introduction to the play, a student guide, a teacher guide with detailed lesson plans, quizzes, a creative assignment, and tests (all with answers and evaluation grids), and a comprehensive answer key. Everything has its place and teaches a specific skill.

The unit is appropriate for students in grades 10, 11 and 12.

The unit includes :

– An attractive, interactive, multimedia PowerPoint presentation introducing the play (17 slides)

-A Student Study Guide (with activities, Act, and scene questions…) and various activities (14 pages)

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

If you’re anything like me, you just don’t love exercising, no matter how much you try to like it, you just don’t. Of course you want to eat that delicious cookie, ice cream, or chocolate, but you don’t dare because it goes right to your hips and you’ll feel oh so guilty!

Hamlet Scene Summary Visual Notebook

 

 

Product Description
This resource has been created as a substitute for the traditional “questions and answers” method we are used to. As teachers, our goal is to make sure students understand the important elements from the play, but we also want to engage them in a “hands-on” fashion.

Studies demonstrate that Sketch noting and doodling help students retain information and understand concepts better than simply answering questions.

This resource allows students to complete notes during the reading process and use the images and heading provided to help them know what the focus should be on.

This is also an excellent study and review tool.

Included in this resources is: 

-a note taking page for every scene in the play
-a note taking page for every soliloquy in the play
-a comprehensive answer key for all scenes and soliloquies

FREE MATH LESSON – “Decimals | Skills Poster”

by LittleStreams

5th – 8th Grade

 

 

This poster is intended to lay the groundwork for a very basic understanding of how Decimals work, without relying on a comparison to Fractions or Percentages at the very first hurdle.

We think that a student should understand the principles of decimals in relation to numbers which are a power of 10, before comparing and contrasting them with Fractions and Percentages. This way, an understanding of fraction conversion can become even stronger later down the line.

Download the FREE poster right away, give us a rating, and follow us to stay updated with all forthcoming products! We appreciate your time.

Twelve great monthly calendar templates for elementary students. There is a template for each month of the year.

Add these calendars to your math time and teach your students math skills around days, weeks, and months. There are plenty of squares to fill in dates, holidays, and birthdays.

Teach students to keep track of events with calendars.

Lesson Plan:
-At the beginning of each Month have your students fill in the calendar with numbers, special days in the month and holidays.
