Finding Life Mentors in Mentor Texts
I’ve been thinking a lot about mentor text lately. Mentor Text. Another piece of education-speak. Sounds official, important, and perhaps a bit daunting for a new teacher or a seasoned one like me, who may not have attended a training or researched  the term. The first time I heard the term, it sent me running to Google for a definition. I found that mentor text is a piece of literature that teachers and students can study, imitate, and apply to other texts and for different purposes.

Within Within (Words Within Words)

The beauty of spelling with letter tiles is that the “outcome” isn’t permanent. Kids aren’t afraid to stretch their spelling acumen by experimenting with letter tiles. Students hear teachers say “Mistakes are OK, you learn from your mistakes.” We all know that’s true and we wish to impart this wisdom to the children, in the hopes that they will embrace this perspective. However, kids still don’t like to make mistakes. With tiles it’s different. Tile spelling seems more like play, and the letters are easily moved to make adjustments to correct a word.

Sock It Away! What to do with Those Annoying Cell Phones in the Classroom

Most of us can’t live without our cell phones. Unfortunately, neither can our students. I teach on the college level, and my syllabus states that all cell phones are to be put on “silent” or turned off when class is in session. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Yet, one of the most common sounds in today’s classrooms is the ringing of a cell phone, often accompanied by some ridiculous tune or sound effect that broadcasts to everyone a call is coming in. What can a teacher do?

We Teach So Hard…Episode #6…Building Relationships 101

 

In this latest episode of WE TEACH SO HARD, we explore ways to build relationships with parents and students and share some humor along the way. Give it a listen for some tips and tricks to make your start to the school year smooth one.

I had to miss recording this podcast so I wanna share some advice from my many years, on the front lines, as a middle school teacher.  The kids are a different breed, pubescent, beautiful, intelligent, wonderful to teach, great sense of humor, with one foot in childhood and the other in adolescence. Once those hormones take over, teaching them becomes more of a challenge.

  • Have morning meetings, many children come from conflicted homes and just need time to get things off their chests.
  • Once they’re able to say what’s on their minds, most will be able to get to work.
  • Talk to them, be humanistic, use humor and be able to laugh at yourself, if you make mistake admit to it, they’ll realize everyone makes mistakes and that’s ok.
  • Find the time to talk to them. It will help you understand what makes them tick. I spent time during home room chatting with each student. It means the world to them and they’ll remember you for it.
  • Keep in contact with parents, let them know that you truly care for their child, and are there for them. #halfthebattleiswon
  • Be  yourself when speaking with parents, joke with them, it breaks the ice. Let them see your true personality as well as your humanity.
  • This is a biggee!!! If you have something negative to say about Johnny, begin with the positive and end with a positive. It’ll make parents feel a little better and they’ll respect what you have to say much more. Best of all, you’ll be working as a team for the betterment of their child.
  • When you need help with something, ask the parents, they’ll be there with bells on. When my students wrote and performed Greek plays, parents helped with costumes/scenery. annnd of course loved seeing their child’s performance.
  • If a parent gets angry and says something you don’t like, don’t react with anger. Take a deep breath, answer calmly and honestly.  I know, I know, sometimes you just wanna use some 4 letter words and tell them off, but don’t do it!

Here’s a link to our podcast on iTunes.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Book Review Labels/Inserts: Classroom Library and More!”

by Secondary Sara

1st – 12th Grade

 

 

Give your classroom library a word-of-mouth makeover, and give students ownership of recommending (and choosing) their own books!

The template makes labels that fit inside the cover of almost any paperback or hardcover novel. (When cut out, it is approximately 3.5×6”, and I haven’t had trouble taping it inside even my small paperbacks so far!)

The form is quick and easy for students to fill out, and it tells students what they REALLY want to know about a book before they begin reading, including difficulty level, whether or not it’s engaging, and if the book is “worth it”.

BONUS: You also get a blank template in case you want to rate books with a different scale or ask different questions! 🙂

Spelling Flip Book

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Spelling-Flip-Book-3019606

 

Spelling Flip Book

 

Product Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flip book when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages. 

It’s teaching made easy!

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Je travaille mon vocabulaire: La salle de classe {French Vocabulary Practice}”

by Ms Joanne

1st – 10th Grade

 

 

Help your beginning French language students develop their vocabulary by playing a matching game, illustrating simple sentences, reading the words in context and making up silly sentences. Use the included illustrated word wall to introduce the new target vocabulary and as a reference tool for students. This resource was developed for Grade 1 French Immersion students but could be used effectively with most beginning French classes. {La description en français se trouve ci-dessous, suivant l’anglais}

This set practices 18 words. Using the materials in this packet, students can practice the target vocabulary in numerous ways:
Play an active matching game that lets them walk around the classroom. Students look for their matching card by asking and answering questions in French using the target vocabulary. Detailed instructions are included.
• Use the matching game cards for a “concentration” game in small groups.
Read sentences using the target vocabulary in context, with an image to use as a picture clue.
• Laminate the 2 pages of context sentences and use them in a reading centre, either for individual reading or in pairs.
• Cut the images from the context sentences and have the students match them up again correctly. 
• Similarly teachers can separate the images from the word wall and have the students match them up again.
Illustrate simple sentences that use the target vocabulary in context.
• Have students orally invent sentences using the target vocabulary and record them on an i-pad or other recording device. If no recording device is available students can take turns in small groups making sentences that use the target vocabulary. Silly sentences, provided they are grammatically correct, are encouraged and can be modeled ahead of time by the teacher.
• Students can listen to the recorded sentences and write down their favorites.
• A copy of the illustrated word wall can be kept by each student to be used as a reference in writing and reading activities as the year continues.

This is a FREE sample from a series of vocabulary practice sets. Other vocabulary practice sets you may be interested in:
Les animaux
L’halloween
La nourriture
Les adjectifs 1
Les adjectifs 2
Les adjectifs 3
Les verbes 1
Les verbes 2
Les verbes 3
The 10 sets are also offered as a discounted bundle. 
Je travaille mon vocabulaire – trousse 1 {French Vocabulary Bundle 1} If you choose to buy this bundle please DO NOT buy any of the above individual sets, as they are ALL included in the bundle.

Also available is a second bundle of 10 sets of slightly more difficult words and sentences which helps students build on their progress Je travaille mon vocabulaire – trousse 2 {French Vocabulary Bundle 2}. This bundle has word sets on body parts, community workers and places, summer sports, winter sports, Christmas as well as 2 adjective sets and 3 verb sets.

Voici un ensemble d’activités pour améliorer le vocabulaire et le niveau de la langue pour vos élèves débutants en français. Cet ensemble comprend un jeu, des phrases simples à illustrer et des phrases à lire avec les mots dans leur contexte. Incluse est une liste illustrée de mots à pratiquer que l’enseignant(e) peut utiliser pour introduire le nouveau vocabulaire et peut aussi servir comme référence pour les élèves. Ces activités ont été développées pour les étudiants de 1re année en programme d’immersion mais peuvent être aussi utilisées avec la plupart des classes de français débutantes.

En utilisant les matériaux trouvés dans cet ensemble de 18 mots les élèves peuvent :
Jouer un jeu où les élèves se promènent dans la salle de classe pour trouver la carte qui correspond à la sienne. Pour trouver la carte correspondante il faut poser et répondre aux questions en français. Les instructions détaillées sont incluent.
• Prendre les cartes du jeu pour jouer un jeu de « concentration » en petit groupe.
Lire des phrases avec les mots dans leur contexte. Il y a aussi une image pour aider à mieux comprendre la phrase et, pour les plus petits, à lire le mot.
• Plastifier les 2 pages de phrases avec les mots dans leur contexte et les mettre dans un centre de lecture où les élèves peuvent les lire individuellement ou avec un partenaire.
Couper les images des phrases et ensuite demander aux élèves de retrouver la phrase qui correspond avec l’image. 
• Avec la même idée l’enseignant(e) peut couper les images de la liste de mots et demander aux élèves de les remettre avec le bon mot.
Illustrer une phrase simple avec les mots dans leur contexte.
• Demander aux élèves de créer oralement des phrases avec les mots et d’enregistrer leurs phrases sur un i-pad ou autre appareil électronique. S’il n’y a pas d’appareil électronique mettre les élèves en petits groupes et leur demander de créer et partager des phrases. Les phrases un peu bêtes sont encouragées si elles sont grammaticales. L’enseignant(e) peut fournir plusieurs exemplaires avant l’activité.
Écouter les phrases qui ont été enregistrées et demander aux élèves d’écrire leurs préférées.
• Donner à chaque élève une copie de la liste de mots à utiliser pendant l’année scolaire comme référence pour d’autres activités d’écriture et de lecture.

Note: The illustrated word wall included in this file, is part of a larger word wall product:

A Good Book Can Start the Year Off Right
By Tracy Willis of Wild Child’s Mossy Oak Musings

My room has a lot of soul. I learned early on in my career that a good book can change my classroom world, create a paradigm shift, and cultivate respect, empathy, imagination and empowerment. I moved around a lot early in my career, so I needed to take those powerful books with me. I never stopped hoarding. Let me tell you about some of my back-to-school teaching treasures.

Tried & True Picture Books to Begin the Year
By Kathie Yonemura of Tried & True Teaching Tools

You’re never too old to be read to and who doesn’t love a good picture book? I always begin the school year reading picture books to my class, rather than jumping right into a novel. (And I continue to read them throughout the year!) There are so many great themes in pictures books, as well as starting points for meaningful discussion.

Read Aloud Books for the Beginning of the Year in Middle School

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

As Teachers, we want our students to step over stumbling blocks, and not be intimidated by obstacles that stand in their way. We want them to realize that they can do anything they set their minds to. Characters in novels can help them overcome these challenges head on, and develop strategies to alleviate them. The books I’ve chosen to share with you are humorous, thought provoking, and great for 6th graders.
