FREE MATH LESSON – “Kindergarten Problem of the Day – April”

by A Turn to Learn

Kindergarten

 

 

Have your Kindergarten students begin practicing mental math with this quick, easy, and FREE “Problem of the Day” routine! I ended up starting this routine as prep work for the story problems that are on the Kindergarten IOWA test… and my kids just love it!

WHAT TOPIC(S) DO THE PROBLEMS FOR THIS MONTH FOCUS ON?
This set, for April, focuses on subtraction stories.
(Scroll down to see the topics for the other months of the year.)

HOW CAN I USE THIS IN MY CLASSROOM?
You can use this however will work best for you! For me, this is a quick five minute routine that we do every morning.

My students really love some of the adaptations that we’ve done, including:
• adding their names into the story (on a rotating basis)
• using turn and talks (to explain their solution to a partner)
• describing their partner’s response (to encourage active listening)

Check out the blog post on the routine if you want to learn more about it!

HOW MUCH PREP WORK DO I NEED TO DO?
All you have to do is laminate, cut the page into four pieces, and go! That’s it!

IS THIS JUST ANOTHER MATH JOURNAL?
You could technically use these problems for math journals if you want, but this routine actually involves no paper and no pencils! If your students take the IOWA test, you know that the test doesn’t allow for students to use scrap paper to solve their math problems, so I use my problem of the day to focus on counting with our fingers and beginning to practice mental math!

WHAT TOPICS DO THE OTHER MONTHS HELP TEACH/REINFORCE?
Each month focuses on a different skill for your students to develop:
• August/September: Counting Within Our Classroom 
• October: Counting Games (Number 0-5) 
• November: Counting Games (Numbers 11-20) 
• December: Counting Stories 
• January: Basic Addition Stories (Numbers on Each Hand)
• February: Basic Addition Stories (Adding On)
• March: Subtraction Stories (Subtracting Numbers Less Than 5)
• April: Subtraction Stories (Subtracting Numbers Less Than 10) (FREE!)
• May: Addition or Subtraction Problem Solving 
• June/July: Addition or Subtraction Problem Solving

CAN I BUY ALL OF THE MONTHS TOGETHER?
If you want to save more than 40% and have a whole year of math word problems ready to go, you can purchase all of the sets as a bundle here:
• BUNDLE for the whole year

Enjoy!

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Poetry-Unit-The-Art-of-Interpretation-No-Prep-1238103

 

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

 

Product Description

Poetry: The Art of Interpretation – is designed to teach students how to interpret, appreciate, and analyze poetry.

There are nine complete lessons (estimated to last approximately 60 minutes), therefore two weeks of lessons.

This complete, no prep unit is a great way to start! This unit includes a student guide, nine detailed lesson plans, two multimedia presentations (no internet connection required), a detailed answer key with annotated poems and answers, and an end of the unit evaluation with a rubric, and answer key.

Just print it and teach it.

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 unit incorporates art to help students understand and appreciate the beauty of words. Also, students will learn how to analyze themes in poetry through paintings and artwork.

This HUGE bundle includes:

Each lesson focuses on a different skill set including:
– Knowledge and manipulation of figurative and poetic language
– How to read and understand (appreciate) poetry
– How to analyze poetry
– How to annotate poetry
– How to paraphrase effectively
– How to use symbols
– How to effectively develop themes from poetry
– Creative writing
– Creative activities to learn how to analyze

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

Poets studied include: (8 poems total)
– Billy Collins – “Introduction to Poetry”
– Anne Marriott – “As You Come in”
– Phyllis Gotlieb – “First Person Demonstrative”
– Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven
– Robert Frost – “Nothing Gold Can Stay.”
– John Crowe Ransom -“Janet Waking”

2 – The student package (Contains students’ notes, poems, and questions) (20 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities (saving you time – 18 pages).

4 – Included is a test with multiple choice questions as well as a development question. All answers are included. (Word format for easy changes)

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

7- An end of the unit creative evaluation, which includes clear and concise directions and rubric. (In a Word document for easy modifications)

– An interactive multimedia Jeopardy game to review figurative language and poetic devices (PowerPoint – no internet required)

– A multimedia PowerPoint on how to read and interpret poetry

The unit has been created in such a way as to simplify the teacher’s life. Photocopy the three packages included and don’t worry about it for the rest of the unit. You literally can begin teaching it without any other preparation.

A total of 43 pages + 64 slides are included in this package.

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. I have done all the thinking for you.

This unit has everything a teacher needs to teach Hamlet. I’m aware that not everyone is comfortable with Shakespeare. Because of this, I have created this unit from my years of experience teaching the play, so all of the thinking has been done for you. 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 activities found to teach the play.
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, 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)

The teacher Guide also includes links to the audiobook (the exact time to cue the audio), AND it includes a list of speaking roles if reading out loud in class)to help with time management and organization.

-18 pages of comprehensive scene summaries and important notes for each scene (annotations for each scene)***THIS IS A TEACHER FAVORITE!

A creative Hamlet Guess Who? Game to help students understand the characters. (What’s fun about this game is that it can be played from the beginning of the play right to the end, and students’ answers will change depending on the act they are reading.) LOTS OF FUN!

-A comprehensive answer key for all questions and activities. (24 pages)

-Comprehension quiz on Acts 1 and 2 in Word format for easy modifications (with evaluation grid) and answer key.

-Mid-play evaluation – The Parody – creative writing and analysis (in Word format for easy modifications – with evaluation grid)

-Summary guide (highlighting the significant events from each scene with important analytical information) – Throughout my years of teaching this play, I have amounted excellent notes and annotations, listing the most significant actions throughout each scene. I have retyped these annotations to help you teach the play, so your students will understand it (and so will you). (18 pages)

-The culminating evaluation includes three different versions of the final unit test with evaluation grid and answer key (in Word for easy modifications)

Includes a total of 109 pages.

FREE Fraction Activity

Looking for a great picture book to help your students understand multiplication with fractions? 

Fraction concepts are often the most challenging for students to grasp and teachers to teach. On top of that, fraction operations can be even more challenging to teach because students are unable to connect the actions of fraction operations with that of whole numbers. Students need a lot of experiences to develop these skills and build a solid understanding of the concepts.

 

One way to help students “see” the action of the operations is by using picture books. My favorite way to teach fraction multiplication is to start with Multiplying Menace. It’s a great springboard to introducing fraction multiplication. Not only will this book help your students “see” the operation, but it will allow students to compare the effects of multiplying whole numbers with the effects of multiplying by fractions.

 

To accompany the book, I created an activity to help students analyze the situations in the book. Click here or on the image to the right to grab a free copy the activity sheet. 

Want to know more? 
Head on over to The Routty Math Teacher website and check out my latest blog post, “Teaching Fractions with Math Picture Books” to read more about Multiplying Menace and learn about Multiplying Menace Divides. Read it here!

 

 

 
Enjoy!

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein 1

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 LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Not Your Grandma’s Book Report: 30 Creative Ways to Respond to Literature”

by Aspire to Inspire Classroom Resources

3rd – 8th Grade

 

 

Turn book reports from drab to FAB! This list of 30 creative alternatives to the traditional book report emphasizes multiple intelligences and student imagination. I’ve also included suggested requirements for these thoughtful–and fun–responses to literature.

********************************************************************************

READY TO INCORPORATE THESE IN YOUR CLASS NOW? UPGRADE!
Buy the Not Your Grandma’s Book Report Bundle, and get everything your students need to show what they know about what they’ve read!

Includes 150+ organized pages of:

–30 detailed project descriptions with requirements
–Graphic organizers for every project
–Templates to create final projects
–Rubrics specifically written for each project
–Suggested uses
–Table of Contents (what’s included for each project)
–Common Core standards references

OR

INCORPORATE THESE INTO A LARGER ELA PROJECT:
Looking to replace traditional book reports with a comprehensive Common Core language arts project that includes these response project ideas? Check out the BIG ELA Book Report Project FULL VERSION.

The BIG ELA Book Report Project FULL VERSION combines reading, writing, speaking, and listening tasks, which engages students and allows them to demonstrate what they know in many different ways. Each part of this project is aligned with an ELA Common Core standard.

–Reading: Students read a book of their choice from a specified genre. Then, they demonstrate comprehension and higher-level thinking by completing two response projects from the Not Your Grandma’s Book Report Bundle.

–Writing: Students also demonstrate comprehension by completing a genre-specific handout that requires knowledge of the setting, characters, plot, problem, and solution. Students are also asked to relate the book to themselves with opinion questions that require support from the book.

–Speaking: Students use their knowledge of the book and opinions with support to prepare and give a 3-5 minute book talk to persuade classmates to read the book.

-Listening: Students demonstrate active listening skills by completing a feedback form for each book talk. Students write down details from each book talk and evaluate whether they would like to read the book in the future.

I also offer a LITE version of the BIG ELA Book Report Project that is compatible with Not Your Grandma’s Book Report LITE.

Your questions are welcome, and your feedback is appreciated!

Teaching the Argument by Solving Mysteries

 

Product Description

Teaching the Argument by Solving Mysteries

This is a great introduction to any literature unit. It teaches students the proper approach to literary analysis, which can be used from grades 7 all the way to 12 in any levels of study.

This mini unit contains 8 lessons that teach students the proper way to form an argument. Many times students will use the right information, but they don’t quite know what to do with it. Through a series of crime scenes, students learn how to collect information (data), collect evidence, and explain how this evidence supports a logical conclusion, all while having fun. This unit teaches students skills that are needed in all literature units.
These lessons allow students to learn the importance of collecting data by taking careful notes, how to select only information that will help support a thesis (or a claim), and how to properly use the information by incorporating pertinent explanations to develop an irrefutable argument.

This is a fun way of learning the necessary skills for argumentation.
The unit contains:

A Student Guide with 12 pages of activities and notes
A Teacher Guide with 8 comprehensive lesson plans and activities
An answer Key with 13 pages of answers and sample texts to help model proper format for students
A downloadable Prezi Presentation introducing the argument and how to develop it.
An end unit evaluation with answer key and evaluation grid 6 pages
Material is available as both PDF and in Word format for easy modifications

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Creating Measurable Criteria for Student Work”

by The Creative Classroom

Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

 

 

As we all know, a major component of the Common Core State Standards is students being able to self assess their learning and evaluating the work they produce. Therefore, it is our job as teachers to provide students with a list of measurable criteria that they can use to self assess their progress towards a learning target. In addition, the list of measurable criteria can help you to create models of exemplary work that students can also use to self assess. This step by step handout will help you to focus on the learning target to identify essential learning and develop how students will demonstrate mastery of the learning target. You can then take these pieces of the puzzle to create clear and specific statements that describe exactly what your students needs to do to master their learning in any subject. There is also a model handout already completed to help guide you through the process of creating measurable criteria.

FREE 5-E Model Lesson Planning Tool

 

Want to know more about the components of a 5-E model lesson plan? 

One of the best ways I have found to teach a good math lesson is through the use of the 5-E model. I love the 5-E model because it allows the students to explore and discover the content on their own before I provide additional information and strategies.

 

The 5-E model also allows me to facilitate the lesson through questioning and assess the students’ understanding throughout the lesson through my observations. While I regularly plan my lessons using this format, I have found it necessary to adapt the format to fit the needs of my students. With that in mind, I will add that this lesson format may take me more than one day to complete and I sometimes complete several explore and explain cycles before getting to the elaboration stage. It all depends on the students!

 

You can get a more detailed look at how I use the 5-E model lesson with my free lesson plan template. It includes a description of each of the five Es and activity ideas that can be used to address each component. 

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my 5-E model lesson plan template.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Interactive Phonics Segmenting Flashcards (CVC) “Mystery Words””

by KB3Teach

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

FREE Segmenting Flashcards: Reinforce letter/sound correlations while practicing segmenting and blending sounds. Common Core standards (RF.K.2d; RF.K.3a)

CURRENT SAMPLE FILE (Short “A”) INCLUDES:
– 16 Mini Interactive Flashcards
– 16 Vocabulary Tracing Cards
– 16 “Write and Wipe” Picture Cards
– Sentence Template
– B&W Flashcards & Vocabulary Set

FOR THE COMPLETE FILE (Short “A”) CLICK HERE:
Interactive Flashcards (Short “A”)
– 32 Mini Interactive Flashcards
– 32 Vocabulary Tracing Cards
– 32 “Write and Wipe” Picture Cards
– Sentence Template
– B&W Flashcards & Vocabulary Set

ADDITIONAL FLASHCARD SETS:
Interactive Flashcards (Short “E”)
Interactive Flashcards (Short “I”)
Interactive Flashcards (Short “O”)
Interactive Flashcards (Short “U”)
Interactive Flashcards *AEIOU* (BUNDLE)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Print one 8.5×11 page per student (8 flashcards per page)
2) Students cut on dotted lines to make individual flashcards.
3) Students use picture cues to fill in the missing letters (mouse/apple/turtle = m / a / t)
4) Students use individual flashcard sets to “test” a partner, blending phonemes into CVC words (c / a / t = cat)

Note: If students are just beginning to learn the sounds of the letters, and are still learning how to segment and blend, you might want to cut the 8.5×11 sheets into two sets (an/at endings) and use them on two different days.

Suggested Extension:
Students read/blend the word, then draw a picture on the back of the flashcard. For more advanced students, have them write a simple sentence using the words in context.

If you’d prefer letter tiles instead of flashcards, I do have a set of “Interactive Letter Tiles” (requested by another wonderful buyer) that includes A-Z tiles, as well as a set of digraph tiles.
