by The Teacher Treasury

2nd – 5th Grade

 

 

1 page graphic organizer

Prompt students to complete the organizer with questions about specific topics. I have placed a few possibilities below, but I’m sure you can do much more with it.

* What questions do you have about your book?

* If you could interview anyone in the world, dead or alive, what questions would you ask him/her?

* What questions do you have for your future self?

* Have you ever wondered how your grandparents met? What questions do you have about their first meeting?

* What are some of the most important questions you should ask when you are lost?

*Think about what you want to be doing or who you want to be when you grow up. What questions do you have for someone who is doing those things today?

* Write down some of the burning questions you’ve always wanted to ask and the ones that were never answered.

* What questions would you ask an alien?

* If animals could talk, what are some of the questions you would ask them?

Hope this helps =)

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Aardvarks Clip Art and Reading Pack”

by J MASON EMERSON

Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

 

 

Aardvarks Clip Art And Reading Pack has 32 public domain images of aardvarks. There are color photos and black and white drawings. Insofar as instructions or suggestions go, you can enlarge or shrink the public domain images’ sizes, move the images around, etc. The images are handy for any classroom (Pre-K through higher ed) and any age or ability level but teachers of art and natural studies in science will likely regard them as being of special interest. Teachers of Pre-K students up will find them handy for using as reward stickers, for classroom décor, etc.

Sources for the aardvark public domain clip art here and in other similar publications include wpclipart.com, clker.com, wikipedia.org, plates from the 1800s works of John Gould, John James Audubon, various federal government agencies, and a few from myself. To summarize:

Contents: Aardvark Images (32, public domain); Quick Facts About Ardvaarks in first English then non-Castillian, Latin American Spanish which should help Spanish-speaking students in regular classes or ESL; Aardvark In Multiple Languages; Aardvark Board Game Template (similar to Candyland or Aggravation); 20 Ways To Teach With Clip Art About Aardvarks Etc; Details For Educational Games (including for teaching about aardvarks; Aardvarks Word Search; Answers Key For Aardvarks Word Search; True-False Test About Aardvarks.

If you don’t have ELL’s now, then you may later. This is dedicated to my wife Barbara, a science teacher for 28 years.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Free Read-Aloud and Writing Activities for WHAT TO DO WITH A BOX by Jane Yolen”

by Pirate Queen Teaching Treasures

2nd – 4th Grade

 

 

How can you use Jane Yolen’s book, WHAT TO DO WITH A BOX, to stimulate imagination inside and outside of your classroom? Use this FREEBIE in a number of ways to inspire imagination. As a read-aloud it can trigger memories and lead to a discussion about imaginary play which can inspire imaginative writing.

This product will help you to make the most of your read-aloud. Four words from the book can be used for vocabulary study. Students are provided with a word list and are encouraged to draw pictures that illustrate the meaning of each word. There are Word Wall cards to post for continuous review. A circle map can be used after the reading to brainstorm and list imaginary ways to use a box.

There are two narrative organizers, a tree map for story elements and a flow map for narrative events. Either is a tool for students to outline their imaginative narratives for using a box. Final copy recording sheets are available as well as a Narrative Scoring Checklist that lists what is expected in the writing.

A second writing activity is to compose an additional stanza to Yolen’s poem. Again, final copy recording sheets are provided.

Detailed Teaching Tips help you to prepare, implement, and celebrate each of these activities. Finally, there are suggestions for how to utilize a box in your classroom.

Product includes:
• Student Objectives
• Common Core Standards
• Teaching Tips
• Vocabulary List and Word Wall Cards
• Graphic Organizers
