FREE MISC. LESSON – “The Lantern – Reduce Tattling With This Classroom Management FREEBIE”

by Core Inspiration by Laura Santos

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

One of our challenges as teachers is to help students learn the difference between tattling and reporting. Often, students who tattle simply need an outlet to be heard. Rather than spending time after recess sorting through playground woes, have students record their concerns on a piece of paper and place it in The Lantern.

This management tool invites students to write or draw about their concern rather than sharing with you verbally, giving you time to address playground issues at an appropriate time. 

This FREEBIE includes:
– Tips for setting up The Lantern in your classroom. 
– Printable posters to cozy up The Lantern nook in your classroom.
– Link to my blog post about using The Lantern in my elementary classroom.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Daily 5 Check In Freebie Smartboard – Winter Theme”

by Smart Kinder Kids

Pre-Kindergarten – 4th Grade

This colorful Winter inspired Daily 5 Check In SmartBoard is sure to get your kids excited about Daily 5 and will help them to learn how to make choices!

There are five slides to use for check in. You can use just one or use the different colored ones for different days or rotations.

Teachers can track their students’ whereabouts in the room and ensure that all stations are being used and that students don’t repeat stations. 
Files can be saved by day, for the week or over the course of the year by using the “Save As” button and saving them by their date. You can also clone the page and add to different color backgrounds for different days of the week or different rotations.

Instructions are given in this file on how to input student names into the boxes. Once you have done this one time, you will have the names to copy and paste throughout the year for all sorts of Smartboards including attendance, lunch count, class graphs, etc. There is also a link to my blog to learn how to do screen shots if you want to learn how to ensure names don’t accidentally come ungrouped.

I do custom orders so if you have a special theme or would like me to enter the names for you please email me at smartkinderkids@yahoo.com

Thanks for checking out my work. Hope you enjoy it! Follow me on my blog at
http://smartkinderkids.blogspot.com/ 
so you can learn more about using technology in your classroom to advance student learning.

***IMPORTANT NOTE*** Please remember that if you are having technical difficulty grouping, ungrouping, cloning, doing screen shots etc as you start to personalize your files that these are issues you campus technician can help you with or you can email me to help you, however, these are not grounds for leaving a poor feedback. Learning to use Smart Notebook software can be difficult and frustrating at first until you get the hang of it, so please seek out help if you feel something is not working correctly as there is often an easy fix. Thanks!

Please also note – this is a Notebook file for use with Smartboards. I believe there are ways to convert these files to other formats however I do not know how to do this and therefore you would need to ask your campus technician if you are using a different type of board to see if it is compatible.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Feelings Journal”

by Mrs Beattie’s Classroom

2nd – 5th Grade

Thinking about how we feel and focusing on the positive aspects of our day can be huge motivators to write. We can provide our students with the opportunity and motivation to do this by encouraging them to think about the most positive parts of their day, and helping them to let go of some of the smaller problems they’ve faced.

This package contains five different journal page options (in both genders, and with a Canadian spelling option included) that can be printed a page at a time or bound into a diary as seen in the thumbnail photos. I hope you and your students enjoy using this!
