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 LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Class Compliment Book Freebie”

by Teaching in the Primary Grades

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

As the school year drew to a close in my classroom, I was looking for a fun way for my students to continue to practice their writing skills while making a fun keepsake they could look back on in years to come and I came up with the idea of a compliment book!

This activity was perfect for my class at the end of the year but, it would also be great for any other time of the year when your class needs some team building.

After the students have finished decorating their books its time to let the fun begin. Each student opens their book to the first blank page and places a pencil next to their book. At my signal, the students slide one chair to the right and write a compliment to their classmate. Students continue moving to the right until they have had the chance to write in each of their classmate’s books. Make sure that your students know that more than one person can write a compliment on each page to avoid using tons of paper!

I am so glad I did this with my class. It was so cute to watch the smiles grow on each student’s face as they were able to read the sweet compliments the received from each of their classmates.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Sight Word – I”

by Amy Biddison – Teaching in Blue Jeans

Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

I Sight Word Practice Page
Use this page to have your students practice the sight word “I”. Students will trace the word, write the word, rainbow write the word (write inside the bubble letters in different colors), circle the word and build the word by cutting out the letters and gluing them in the correct box. Great for a sight word center or group practice.

Note: the little circles in the Build the Word squares are for dots of glue. My kiddos are just starting with glue so I wanted this reminder as a guide. Hope it helps your kids too!

For other sight word practice pages see my store. I have a kindergarten set, a color words set and numbers zero to ten set. More coming soon. If you have specific words you would like please contact me. I would be happy to create a custom set for you.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “FREEBIE: Brain Sprinkles and Shhhh Spray Labels”

by Primary Paradise

Pre-Kindergarten – 5th Grade

 

 

Sometimes our students could use a little magic in their lives. Use these two labels to create some magical Brain Sprinkles and Shhhh Spray.

Brain Sprinkles are used to give a student’s brain an extra boost before a test, when they’re stuck on a problem, or when they’re just having a rough day. Just shake some brain sprinkles over their head and watch the light bulb moment happen! (A lot of time when when students are stuck, they really need to just relax and destress. Brain Sprinkles are a fun way to make students smile and relax a bit which helps get their creative juices flowing again)

Shhhh Spray is used to help students who need a magical reminder to quiet down. This can be used before a test, before walking in the hallway, or any time. Just spray some Shhhh Spray in the air and watch the voice turn off magically! I don’t spray Shhhh Spray at a specific student, rather I freshen the air with it like air freshener. (Note: make sure the spray bottle is cleaned our and empty)

I like to use both Brain Sprinkles and Shhhh Spray right before a big test.

I hope you enjoy!

product_0

Product Description

Je fais un oiseau – from my Learn to Read series features 33 flashcards to help students learn French vocabulary. The cards teach students the different sounds as well as vocabulary with pictures to facilitate the reading process.

The following vocabulary words are included:

– Oiseau, je, fais, un, voici, aile, use of l’, œil, va, ici, le, bec, queue, la.

The cards use the words in various different contexts to reinforce learning and reading. In addition, half of the flashcards have the picture to introduce the words, and the other half only have the words to help students read more independently.

This package also contains 3 writing exercises where students can rewrite the words they saw on the flashcards. They must rewrite the sentences twice: once tracing the words, and the next, copying the sentences. Make sure to reinforce the use of the capital letter and period at the end of the sentence.

It’s teaching made easy!

Social Skills All Year

by Kathy Babineau

Grades KG – 5th

 

This kit contains 240 cards covering seasonal scenarios and topics. For each month of the year (including summer months), there are 4 Topic Talker cards, 4 Role Playing cards, 4 Facial Expression/Body Language cards, 4 Problem Solver cards, and 4 Perspective Taker cards, for a total of 20 cards for each month of the year. Cards are simply marked with the month of the year, but they can also be mixed and matched throughout the year if you would rather not focus on themes.

The Topic Talker Cards offer suggested topics of conversation, many of which are related to timely topics and holidays. Some other generic school based topics have been included in order to be sensitive to students who may not observe particular holidays. These topic talker cards are helpful for students who are trying to work to maintain on-topic exchanges with peers, addressing attention to conversation and even general expressive and receptive language.

The Role Playing cards also address many timely topics. When using the Role Playing cards, I like to have multiple teams role play the same scenes, because there may be several correct ways to “act out” the situation. It is also fun sometimes to role play the situation in an inappropriate way and then discuss why it may be hurtful or inappropriate or offensive. Be sure to brainstorm and discuss how body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice and word choice are all important to communication.

The Facial Expression/Body Language cards are fun to use to think about and practice ways that we communicate with our faces and our bodies.

The Problem Solver cards offer students opportunities to think about social situations, analyze the problem and generate practical solutions. There is not always just one correct answer to these problems.

The Perspective Taker cards encourage students to put themselves in a situation or in someone else’s shoes and decide how they might feel.

To use this kit, simply print out all sheets and then cut apart and laminate (optional) the cards, and you are good to go! They are all in black and white (except the cover page) to go easy on the color copying budget.

I hope you like this and find it helpful when working with your students!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “I Can Tell the Difference Between “p” and “q” Practice Packet”

by Sara Ipatenco

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

Many preschool, kindergarten and early elementary age students mix up “p” and “q.” Though it’s normal, it’s also essential that students learn to recognize the difference so they’re able to read and spell accurately. This packet, by Sara Ipatenco, can help students notice the differences by asking them to sort the two letters in a variety of ways. Use it as morning work, classroom practice or homework.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “BEE a Reader! Bookmarks”

by Growing Smart Readers

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

Bee a Reader! Bookmarks

Mini Word Wall
Kids need to have sight words/frequent words handy for writing, and to practice fluency.

What makes these unique is that these bookmarks double as a mini word wall—handy for writing and spelling, and can also be perfect for a quick fluency drill.

There are three sets of instant words lists.

Select cover and list of words
~When printing, choose the cover slide number and the slide number for the list you want for your kids.
~Then print back-to-back, at landscape orientation setting.

You may wish to laminate for a long-lasting reference, since these words can be kept handy for journal writing, as well as in readers’ notebooks. Kids can keep a bookmark in their folders.

Send these home for drill practice–for reading and writing. Or, keep them handy on your bookshelf for your readers.

Print, punch a hole, and personalize with ribbon, string, beads, etc.

Thanks for your interest. Have fun with these!

Please let me know how these worked out for your kiddos!
Karen

By Susan Berkowitz of Susan Berkowitz

Individuals who use AAC need to learn to take a conscious path to the words they need. If they want an apple, they need to think about how to navigate to categories -> to food -> to fruit -> to apple. SLPs can help them learn how to do this.
