There are also text-dependent questions and a writing prompt for your students to cite evidence from the text.

In addition, with all of the cross-curricular themes included in the passages, you can also use this pack during science, to study planets, space, and more!

  Zen Classroom

  By Retta London of Rainbow City Learning

                                                               

Some ideas for bringing peace and calm to your classroom, using practices found in yoga.

 

                                                                           A Disciplined Child is a Happy Child                                                                               

  By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern                                                                  

 I can’t express enough that one of the worst things a teacher can do is to prejudge a class or a student before they even enter the room. Let’s face it, some kids get along better with some teachers than they do with others, so it’s better to listen but with a grain of salt and                                                                                           make your own judgment.

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Microsoft Word Game”

by MrsTech

1st – 4th Grade

 

 

This is an activity that I used in my Elementary Tech classes to refresh what we learned last year about Microsoft Word basics.

Directions: Students will start with their name on their computer. They will then rotate every 30 seconds to answer one of the following questions that I call out. Think of this as a teacher directed game of SCOOT. If you have older students, you could also print these out as task cards. The students will have a good time laughing at their “Fake About Me” when they get back to their seat. After a quick refresher of where to locate the following items, I had the students change fonts, colors, and sizes of text as well as adding pictures of the items in their lists.
