FREE MATH LESSON – “Roll, Say & Keep: Christmas Style”

by Jungle Learners

Pre-Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

Christmas Roll, Say & Keep

How to play: cut out the cards and place one card on each square on the mat face up. One child rolls the dice, and has to say the answer of the card on that spot.

If they get it right, they get to keep the card, if it’s wrong, they leave it there. It’s then their partners turn.
Play continues until all the cards have been taken.

I also included a blank set of cards in case you would like to add whatever concept you need at this time with your kids.

I know you have a lot of choices on TpT from a lot of talented sellers. Thank you for taking the time to consider my product. I would love to have you follow my store to be notified of future products and freebies!

Let me know if you have any questions and have a wonderful day!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Speech Therapy Artic Sight Words /Z/ final position (Homework/ Games/Flashcards)”

by Karen Pritchett

Pre-Kindergarten – 4th Grade

 

 

Freebie for now! /z/ sight words for speech therapy. A great way to combine articulation drills with academics. (Great for observations!)

/Z/ Final position sight words packet includes:
12 Final /z/ Sight Word Flashcards
1 Final /z/ Game Board (color)
1 Final /z/ Game Board (black & white)
1 Final /z/ Data Sheet for Homework

This set is similar to my other phoneme sets, but it is a smaller packet. There are not really many sight words that contain the phoneme /z/ in the initial or medial position. This set is available in my sight word bundle in my store.
Save with R, L, S, & Z bundle!

In an effort to combine functional/academic activities with traditional
articulation therapy, I decided to start using sight words. I searched through Dolch and Fry sight word lists to find the words I thought were the most important. I tried to avoid words that had too many syllables or blends that might be tricky for children who struggle with articulation.

Simple ways to help kids communicate their feelings!

5 simple ways to help kids communicate their feelings! #feelings #emotions #kids #socialskills #specialeducation #regulateemotions

When kids are comfortable with communicating their feelings, they often end up communicating what they most deeply need.  When their feelings are validated, the groundwork for self-regulation is being put into place.  And so, fitting emotional literacy naturally into a child’s life early simply makes good sense.

Here are 5 simple ways to help kids communicate their feelings:

 

1. Communicate feelings yourself (and encourage role-models to do so, too)!

Kids do what we do. They observe and experience how the adults and role models in their lives identify, accept and manage their own feelings and the emotions of others, and use what they have processed as a  basis for their own beliefs and practices.

Whenever we, the grown ups, can use language including “I feel, I felt, I remember feeling, etc.” we are making a deposit into the emotional language banks of the children in our presence.

Many people find discussing feelings and emotions difficult, and the toughest part can be starting the conversation. The good news is that the first conversations about feelings do not have to be personal!

 

2. Read stories!

Even in kindergarten, there are children who are already uncomfortable about discussing their own feelings.  I have yet to meet a little person who is not willing to hear a story or watch something on YouTube!

I have been developing the Dealing With Feelings stories since 2013, and frequently use them on my iPad when needed, providing students with a line-art copy to color. The characters in these stories model emotional literacy on a level that kids can relate to.

Dealing With Feelings Storybook lessons: Relatable characters model how they identify, accept and manage tricky feelings! Printable color and line-art, gender specific, growing series!

Dealing With Feelings Stories: I simply say, “Would you like to hear a story?” and allow the child to discover connections to the character as we read.

 

(We all know how motivated we are to discuss something we’re uncomfortable with!) Listening to a story is often calming!

There are so many amazing feelings / emotions books available today, that I have a Pinterest board dedicated to them. Check it out:

Many of these stories are also read-aloud on YouTube!

3. Provide pictures showing feelings / expressions!

A child who wants to communicate his or her feelings but does not have the vocabulary to say how he or she feels, can point to a picture s/he relates best to.

Picture dictionaries often have a page dedicated to feelings, which can be bookmarked with a sticky note. Years ago, I made a feelings bulletin board with my firsties from photographs, newspaper and magazine clippings.

Having posters in the classroom is most effective when done appropriately for the group you have. Keeping it simple with fewer posters for younger children is recommended to avoid overwhelming the kids, while lining up multiple posters in older classes can be be especially useful to students who are writing about feelings.

I like to display these half-page feelings flags where kids can point to them. The posters below are full-page size, but are also included as playing cards in the set.

I like to display half-page feelings flags where kids can point to them. The posters shown at the bottom are 8 1/2 x 11 pages, and are also included as playing cards in my visuals, tools and activities set.

 

Earlier in my teaching career, I used feelings pictures for individual students on a ring, but have found that (like visual schedules) in recent years, increasing numbers of students benefit from them being posted right on the wall (and the rings are easily misplaced)!

 

4. Feelings scales

Feelings scales can be used for an entire class or for individuals. In the photo below, the kids’ names are on clothes pegs, and the feelings scale has been printed on thick card paper and laminated.

 

Feelings scales like these make it easier for kids to communicate their emotions without saying a word. Students can answer "How are you feeling?' by simply pointing to a picture, or with the slide of a paperclip, button or placement of a clothes peg. #feelings #feelingsscale #emotions #selfregulation

Feelings scales like these make it easier for kids to communicate their emotions without saying a word. Students can answer  “How are you feeling?” by simply pointing to a picture, or with the slide of a paperclip, button or placement of a clothes peg. (The button slider pictured in the top middle doubles as a fidget toy!)

 

I’ve used feelings scales with individual students. They are especially helpful with kids whose frustration moves into raging anger quickly, and lose control.  With a feelings scale, a child can make it clear to themselves, and others, when they are becoming frustrated, so that measures can be put in place to prevent further escalation.

5. Work ‘feelings talk’ into daily routines

  • Have a star student? If that student is trying to share something with the class and is interrupted, how does it make him/her feel?
  • Discussing the calendar, an upcoming holiday? How many people feel excited about it?
  • Celebrating a child’s birthday? How does it feel to be the birthday child? Is it normal to feel jealous that it isn’t your own birthday? 
  • Getting close to outdoor time? Have an over-exaggerated, humorous gripe session about the most frustrating part of getting ready for home!

FREE MATH LESSON – “Christmas Place Value 100s Chart Mystery Picture Activity Freebie”

by Kiddos and Crayons by Jordan Piacenti

1st – 2nd Grade

 

 

Practice place value with a fun Christmas themed puzzle. Students will practice place value by identifying numbers through base ten blocks, expanded form and tens and ones on their answer sheets. Then, they use their answers to color a 100s chart to reveal the mystery picture (santa).

Each worksheet shows a two digit number in either expanded form, word form (i.e. 6 tens and 5 ones) or as picture of tens and ones blocks. After students solve the problem and write the correct number on their worksheet, they find the number on a blank 100s chart and color it a specified color. When they are done they will have revealed a fun mystery picture.

This activity works great as a math center or a fast finisher. It can also be used as a whole group listening activity by having the teacher call out the number of tens and ones for each problem.

Classroom Rules Poster and Instructions

 

Product Description
Free Classroom Rules Poster and Instructions

It sounds very idealistic to say this, but it’s true. From personal experience, I assure you that simplifying your rules will simplify your life.

At the beginning of the school year, when it’s time to introduce the class rules I show students this poster and read the three words. Then, using the Socratic method of questioning I go through the rules one by one and discuss the implications of those rules (which is the reason you don’t need many.)

FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE Math Counting How Many More To Make Ten? Pilgrim Color Version”

by Learning Harbor Resources for Teachers

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

This task card activity provides counting and fine motor skill practice at the same time. A student looks at the number of objects that the character is holding, then he counts on to see how many more are needed to make ten. The student can mark his answers by clipping a clothes pin onto the answer, by covering the answer with a mini eraser, button, or any small game markers that you have in your classroom. I suggest laminating the cards for durability. If the cards are laminated, the students can circle the correct answer with a wipe off marker or crayon. To make the cards self-correcting put a small sticker or draw a star over the correct answer on the back of the card.
