FREE MISC. LESSON – “Kindness Rocks: Free Labels for Pass-It-On Kindness Stones”

by Whimsy in School Counseling

2nd – 12th Grade

 

 

Different kindness campaigns across the US hide rocks with kind messages, bright pictures, or inspiring quotes on them. This fun, meaningful project is low-budget and high-impact: using art supplies that you already have and rocks your class finds outside, you can make a masterpiece!

This is an easy art project that supplements social-emotional learning and community engagement. Perfect for the end of the school year, before a field trip, or as a fun way of spreading cheer around the playground!

Simply collect rocks, paint them, affix a label to the back, cover in modge podge or clear glue, and hide in any appropriate public place! For even more fun, add a hashtag or start a facebook page so folks who find your rocks (and are inspired to create their own rocks!) can post pictures of where they find and rehide yours.

FREE Critical Thinking Challenges

What quick tasks can I use on a regular basis to promote critical thinking? 

Logic puzzles help students develop solid critical thinking and problem-solving skills in the early grades and are a great way to engage students. In addition, they are fun and provide lots of opportunities for students to share what they are thinking and how they determined the solutions. Weight Logic puzzles do exactly that and they reinforce algebraic thinking at the same time.

 

To complete the weight logic puzzles, students use the sum of the symbols shown on the scale to determine the value of each symbol. For many students, this task seems simple. You guess and check the values until you find a combination that works. But that level of thinking is just the beginning. The real critical thinking comes in when students use strategies, other than guess and check, to determine the value of each fruit.

April Activities Just for You
By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

Turning my thoughts to sunny days and warmer weather!!! Can’t you just smell spring in the air? Daffodils beginning to bloom, Lilac trees starting to flower, and Lilies of the Valley popping up. I just love the aroma. Not only is my birthday in April but it brings us Passover, Easter, and one that you may never have heard of, can you guess? If you said Jelly Bean Day, you’d be right.  I don’t know about you, but I looove jelly beans. They come in so many awesome flavors, no I don’t like the black ones, but I had an aunt who used to love them.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Sample – Teaching Inferring “What am I?””

by Kyp McLaren

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

Understanding how to make an inference from text is often difficult for children. Children make inferences all the time without realizing exactly what they are doing. It is important to share with them that making inferences is like being a detective. You look at all the evidence or clues and put them together along with their background knowledge to come up with an idea about a situation or problem. This packet is filled with “close-ups” and pictures of 50 different creatures.

How to use “What am I?”:

Use the following pictures on a Smartboard, in small groups or individually to introduce and teach the reading comprehension strategy of inferring.

Begin by having my students look closely at the picture of the close-up. Ask them what they see or observe in this picture? What details do they notice? What do they see when looking “closely”? What might they infer this is, based on what they see in the close-up?

Next, have your students make a list of clues or evidence to support their conclusions about the close-up. Using the clues or evidence, what inference can they make about what this creature is? Have them use their evidence to support their conclusions.

Common Core Standards introduced or covered include:

RL.1 and RIT.1 – Ask and answer questions about key details in a text

SL.2 – Recount or describe key ideas or details from a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media

SL.3 – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 3 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly. (Determine the main ideas and supporting details of a text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally)

SL.4 – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

Any claims of correlation or alignment to the CCSS or WIDA ELD Standards are solely those of Tools for Teachers by Kyp McLaren and have not been evaluated or endorsed by WIDA or the NGA.

Kyp McLaren is the sole creator of this product and is not associated with the entities who created the standards.

The Common Core Standards were developed and written by the NGA. © Copyright 2010. National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers. All rights reserved.”

FREE Math Talk Questions Poster

 

What questions do I ask to encourage math talk? 

Creating a classroom where students are able to effectively use math talk during a classroom discussion can be challenging. Many of our
students do not know how to communicate their mathematical ideas and strategies using key math vocabulary and concepts. As teachers, we play an important role as we help students identify their thinking processes and build new knowledge by connecting to ideas and concepts that they already understand.
The Open-Ended Questions poster includes questions to promote mathematical communication in the classroom. You can use these questions to expand a conversation or to get one started. Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of the poster.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll strategy encourages students to explore the different aspects of the problem-solving process when reviewing math problems. This is a great strategy for reviewing test questions or reviews that have multiple choice answers. This strategy works best for
reviewing a few problems, maybe the most missed ones from an assessment or review, but it’s very effective.

FREE Mathematical Discourse Resource

 

Looking for a strategy to encourage mathematical discourse in your classroom? 

The “Who’s Correct?” strategy allows students the opportunity to evaluate the mathematical thinking of others and either agree or disagree with the person’s response. What I love about this strategy is that students do not just solve the problem, they must select a correct, or incorrect, response and provide a justification for the thinking of another. See the example above. 

Here’s how to use this strategy:
1. Create two responses to a problem (consider using a frequently missed test item).

2. Ask students to respond to the “Who’s Correct?” question and give a justification in pictures, words, or numbers.

3. Have students debate who’s response is correct (or incorrect) using appropriate models and mathematical vocabulary.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my “Who’s Correct?” images. To use them, insert them into PowerPoint slides and then add your own text. You can read more about how to use the “Who’s Correct?” strategy with your students here.

FREE Math Vocabulary Activity

 

Looking for a critical thinking activity to help your students with math vocabulary? 

The “Vocabulary Dominoes” activity requires students to compare and contrast terms, as well as, look for, analyze, justify, and communicate about relationships among the terms.


Here’s how it works:
1. Group students in groups of three. Assign students to be Student 1, 2, or 3. Note: This activity works best with at least 16 dominoes for a group of three.
2. Students spread out the face-down cards.
3. Each student takes 4 dominoes. Place the remaining cards in a face-down stack.
4. Student 1 turns over one of the remaining cards to use as the starter domino.
5. In turn, each student tries to connect one of the words on his/her domino to an end and justify the connection. If no connection is made, the student takes a card from the extra pile and tries to make a connection. If no connection can be made, the turn is lost.
6. The first student to place all of his/her dominoes is the winner.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my “Vocabulary Dominoes” template. To use the download: Insert the image into a Word document or PowerPoint slide. Just add a text box with each word you want to add and place it in the center of each half of the domino.

It’s March….Let’s Go Fly a Kite

FREE Editable Task Sheet Template for Math Stations

 

 

Looking for a quick template to use to create a standardized task sheet for math stations? 

One of the ways I like to manage and organize my math stations is by creating a standard game directions page to include with any game that I use, i.e. card and dice games, board games, etc. Taking the time to create these from the start makes it easier for students to locate the directions and get started right away. On the game sheet, I include the following: Concept/Skill, Number of Players, Materials, Objective, and Procedure.
To help you organize your stations, I’ve created an editable freebie task sheet for you!
Here’s how to use it:
1.) Download the file from Google Drive.
2.) Open the PowerPoint file in Microsoft PowerPoint.
3.) Insert text boxes and add text to create the task sheet. Be sure to add a title!

 

Note: Hello Literacy’s “Hello Doodle Print” font is used in the template. The clipart is courtesy of Krista Wallden.
