FREE MISC. LESSON – “End of the Year Awards {Free}”

by Primary Teachspiration

Kindergarten – 5th Grade

 

 

Your students will love these end of the year award Candy Bar Wrappers – a perfect end of the year student gift!

Each boy and girl wrapper is sized to fit a Hershey bar. After typing your students’ names, your name, and date in the editable text boxes, simply cut around the two sides of each wrapper, fold on the dotted lines and wrap around the candy bar; then glue or tape at the back. Simple as pie! 🙂

You can print these in black and white or grayscale if you prefer no color.

If you’re looking for other great end of the year candy bar wrapper AWARDS, you can find them HERE:

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Pre-Writing Organizer – 4Square”

by Heart2Teach

Kindergarten – 5th Grade

 

This is great Pre-Writing Organizer to use with beginning writers. The topic or main idea goes in the middle. Then, the three numbered squares are for pictures or sentences about the topic. The fourth square, with the face, is for the picture or sentence about how the topic makes the students feel. It is a great way for students to organize their thoughts. More advanced writers can write paragraphs in each section of the organizer before transferring it to a final draft.

Check out my “corRect Me if iM wrong” activities!

Happy Teaching!

Surviving the Last Weeks of School: 3 Activities to Keep Your Students Engaged

By Shametria Routt of The Routty Math Teacher

Managing student engagement and behaviors at the end of the school year can be a challenge for even our most experienced teachers. The more engaged students are in tasks that are both developmentally appropriate and challenging, the less off-task behavior they will display. With that in mind, I would like to share some of my favorite problem solving and critical thinking strategies I use to keep my students engaged during the last weeks of the school year.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “S’Mores 1st Grade Dolch Card Game”

by Dana Designs

3rd – 6th Grade

 

 

FREEBIE ALERT!

If you’re sick of going through boring flashcards, this is a great resource that is quick to play and easy to learn. Students can practice Dolch sight words within the context of a card game. Because each card is labeled with the grade level, it is easy to switch cards from different levels in and out. In this file, you get a page with all the directions (as listed below) and four pages of playing cards that print 12 per page.

To Win: Be the player with the most s’mores at the end of the game.

To Play:
Shuffle cards and place in a single pile face down.
On each player’s turn, choose the top card and read the word. Keep the card.
Continue play until all cards are picked up.
All players see how many complete s’mores they have made (a complete s’more is one of each card: chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker, and fire).
The player with the highest number of complete s’mores wins.
In the event of a tie, the player with the highest number of words that begin with the letter t is the winner.

Other Ways to Play:
*The first card turned over is the wild card. Whatever type of card that is will be what players try to get the most of to win the game. (For example, if the first card is a marshmallow, then the player with the most marshmallows at the end of the deck wins).
*At the end of the deck, count the number of pairs of matching cards. Each pair counts as one point.
*Shuffle the deck and deal cards out (face down to each player). On each player’s turn, they flip their top card onto the pile and say the word. If the current word is the same card type as the one below it, the first person to say the word and slap the pile gets to take the cards. Continue play until one player has the entire deck. (Similar to playing Slap Jack).

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.)

Surviving the Last Weeks of School

By: Shametria L. Routt, The Routty Math Teacher

 

It’s April!! For me this month means a time for celebration—it’s my birth month. For many Americans though, it’s a most dreaded time of the year because it means that they have to send a very large check to the government for the amount of tax debt they did not pay during the 12 months of 2016. For teachers, it means we are entering the home stretch and the last weeks of the school year. Now, any parents who have happened upon this blog post are saying—why is this a problem. But, as teachers, we all know that:

Last weeks of the school year = Crazy time!

Managing student engagement and behaviors at the end of the school year can be a challenge for even our most experienced teachers. Trust me when I say that keeping them engaged is how to win the battle. The more engaged they are in tasks that are both developmentally appropriate and challenging, the less off-task behavior they will display.

Having been an educator for the past 14 years and experiencing 14 end-of-year crazy times, I would like to share some of my favorite problem solving and critical thinking strategies I used to keep my students engaged during the last weeks of the school year.

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!

Apprendre à lire: Je fais un oiseau - Learn to Read French

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.

It’s teaching made easy!
