FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Show Not Tell Lesson Plan”

by Thinking Out Loud

5th – 8th Grade

 

 

This lesson plan has two versions. The first version is the lesson plan I used with my examples and the focus skill of verb tenses. The second lesson plan has blanks to write your own example and focus skill. The last sheet is writing stationary that can be used to showcase student work.

I use this lesson plan when my students are writing basic paragraphs with no description.

I have aligned this lesson with 6th-8th grade CCSS (Common Core Standards). I left lines under standards on the lesson plan so you could fill in the appropriate grade level standards.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Free Multiple Meanings Personal Dictionary”

by Janet Rainey

2nd – 5th Grade

 

 

I have reached some personal milestones recently on TPT and wanted to share one of my students’ favorite activities with my TPT followers!

My students love keeping track of the multiple meaning words they encounter in their readings as well as our daily discussions. I created this Multiple Meanings Personal Dictionary booklet for them when we come across a multiple meaning word that they want to further investigate.

I ran several copies of the multiple meaning template page back-to-back, stapled it to the cover page, and had students glue it into their interactive reading notebooks.

Now, whenever we come across a multiple meaning word of particular interest, we simply add it to our Personal Dictionaries.

Full size pages of the cover page and multiple meaning template have been included in this download as well as an additional booklet cover page if you prefer to not glue it into an interactive notebook.

Check out my store while you are here, and please consider following me for more engaging and educational activities!

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.)

Spelling Flip Book 8

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

 

product_0

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!
