FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Tiger Rising Novel Study Resources Freebie Kate DiCamillo Common Core”

by James Whitaker

5th – 12th Grade

The Tiger Rising
(by Kate DiCamillo)
Novel Study and Unit Resources Freebie
by James D. Whitaker

*** FULL NOVEL STUDY: THE TIGER RISING NOVEL STUDY ***

Product/Materials Preface [Grades 5-12]

This English Language Arts Novel Study and Unit Resource Freebie is part of my 140+-page Mega Study and celebrates the Kate DiCamillo’s thematically rich novel The Tiger Rising. I was more familiar with DiCamillo’s more upbeat tales: Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux, but I recently picked up The Tiger Rising, quickly devoured it, and it is now my favorite of her of novels. So, I thought I’d throw together this thought provoking and powerful novel study to help my colleagues share the endearing story with their students. Nevertheless, the tale is rich in theme and takes us on a tour de force through the mind of a young, grief-stricken protagonist. The story grapples bullying, emotional imprisonment, the search for a kindred spirit and ultimately redemption.

This Freebie Includes (23 pages):

5: Overview of High Order Thinking Concepts in The Tiger Rising
6-7: Character Description Blurb GO with Characters Written In
8: In-depth Synopsis and Chapter Reflection, Analysis, Evaluation Template [Any Chapter]

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Discussion Prompt Cards FREE”

by Rainbow City Learning

3rd – 5th Grade

Let these adorable gnomes lead the way as your students discover and express feelings of gratitude. In the full resource, you will find prompt cards, a SCOOT game, posters, notecards, and a Photo Booth activity all inside this motivating resource.

As they answer and discuss the prompt cards, students will reach inside to activate empathy, generosity, and open hearts and minds. They will find the magic that awaits in doing good deeds and the joy that can be found in ordinary tasks.

The FREE SAMPLE contains four discussion/writing prompt cards to try in your classroom.

The full resource can be found here: Grateful Gnomes

In the full resource, you will find the following:

  • Use the 28 cards as discussion prompts, writing prompts, or to play a SCOOT game. The cards would be a great addition to your morning meeting (or whatever community time you have). Just discuss one card per day. The cards may also be used as quickwrite prompts or journal entries.
  • The SCOOT game can be played as a prewriting or pre-dicussion activity, giving each child a beginning response. Card backs , response page, and BREAK cards are included.
  • Use the posters as inspiration while you are working through the activities in this resource.
  • Have some fun with the photo booth gnome hat props, and create a unique and meaningful display for your bulletin board or hallway. Attach the hats (after cutting out) to a cardstock band or headband. Then take a photo of the student wearing the hat. Four example posters are included to demonstrate how to combine a “Photo Booth” picture with a statement of one way that each student is grateful.
  • Use the “Grateful” blank cards for you and your students to send messages of gratitude to each other.
  • All resources are included both in full color and black/white.

The thumbnails below show the full paid resource.

Wishing you a season and year ahead of gratitude!

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Small Groups Scheduling Charts {freebie!}”

by Tessa Maguire

Pre-Kindergarten – 5th Grade

I find the hardest part about Guided Reading and small group instruction is figuring out how to meet with all of your groups, especially since the number of groups may change back and forth throughout the year. These charts give you different ways to schedule your groups depending on the number of groups and the number of time slots.

3 slots- 4 groups
3 slots- 5 groups
3 slots- 6 groups
4 slots- 5 groups
4 slots- 6 groups
4 slots- 7 groups
4 slots- 8 groups

FREE MISC. LESSON – “FREE Paper Drop System”

by Laura Candler

2nd – 6th Grade

Here’s an easy paper management system developed by Laura Candler to deal with the problem of students forgetting to put names on their papers. When they finish their work, they slide their papers into a “paper drop,” a laminated brown envelope with a student checklist attached. At the end of the class period, pull out the papers to be sure you have everyone’s work. Then put the papers right back into the envelope to keep them together for grading later. The entire Paper Drop System system is described in this packet and includes the printables you need to make it work for you.

 3 Tried & True Games to Teach Place Value & Rounding
By Kathie Yonemura of Tried and True Teaching Tools

 Beginning of the year. . . I used to be so tempted to skip teaching place value because it seemed too simplistic, assuming kids knew how to read larger numbers. Plus I wanted to get on with the “real math”:multiplication and long division. WRONG! Developing number sense and place value are critical to understanding ALL math!  **************************************************

Never Give Up... Persevere!

The Left Angle Mystery
By Vicky Rauch of Scipi

Geometry is probably my favorite part of math to teach because it is so visual; plus, the subject lends itself to doing many hands-on activities, even with my college students. When our unit on points, lines and angles is finished, it is time for the unit test. Almost every year I ask the following question: What is a left angle? Some of the responses I have received over the years are disheartening.

Chances are, that person is simply familiar with the 5-Step Creativity Process
