FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Writing – “Just Say, ‘NO!’ to Dull Writing””

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

This year-long,”Just Say, ‘NO!’ to Dull Writing” activity has always been one of my star middle and high school lesson plans. On the first day of school, I handed out to my students right after we reviewed the syllabus and classroom rules and expectations.

I explained to the students that they were required to refer to it for any writing-graded or non-graded. Also, I made a poster of it to hang in the classroom and I taped a copy of the list to each desk for continual writing reinforcement.

Although it is a integral part of ‘Chapter 2 – The Foundation’ in my teacher resource book, “The House of Comprehension,” I offer it in my TpT store for FREE. The Taboo Words and Phrases list and coordinating lessons are crucial for empowering students to write clear, specific sentences instead of those with meaningless word choices and weak structures.

Here are some suggestions for using this product:

1. The first day of school, hand out the Taboo Words & Phrases sheet to every student. Explain that they are to refer to it every time that they revise a draft of an essay, an original poem or fiction piece, or a narrative article. Mention that even if they only revise for these particular words and phrases, their writing will dramatically improve.
2. Discuss that
– when they use these weak and clichéd words and phrases, their writing is vague, emotionless, and tells instead of shows.
– no matter what type of writing they are composing, students should strive to create word pictures;
– their writing must show, not tell, and to do this they must use concrete, specific nouns and adjectives.
– Verbs form the backbone of writing, and should always show action as well as the emotion of the subject performing the action.
3. Write some sentences on the board that use these weak words and phrases, and have students revise them for strength and clarity.
4. Repeat this information over and over to the students and address it on their final drafts.

The Taboo Words & Phrases List also works as a poster to hang in the classroom. For a poster, add the following information:

Effective Writing:
-Shows instead of tells
-Creates word pictures
-Uses concrete, specific nouns and adjectives
-Forms strong sentences-writing’s backbone- with verbs that show action and emotion

The other day, a former student who is now a senior in college asked me to send it to her. On my Facebook Profile page she said, “Mrs. C- I am tutoring at CNU’s writing center and have to do a presentation on making writing “concise and precise.” Could you send me a copy of your taboo words list please? It’s been and will continue to be the best advice on writing well that I’ve found ” (Olga S).

When this Taboo Words and Phrases list impacts your students’ thinking and writing, it will become a lifelong tool just as it did for Olga.

Writing Conference Guide and Forms

With over 20 compliments and 15 improvement suggestions, the conference card will help guide what to say during a writing conference with your students! Just like when you scaffold and model the requirements for an essay in a mini-lesson, you do the same thing individually for each student through conferencing. Conferencing will help you deliver differentiated instruction. 

Included in this resource:

✓ How I Use This Resource

✓ Conference Card has

✓ Can Add Information to Blank Conference Card

✓ Meeting Schedule

✓ EDITABLE Tracker

✓ Student Anecdotal Notes

✓ Teacher Anecdotal Notes

✓ Skill Reteach Form

✓ EDITABLE Conference Data

✓ Terms of Use

✓ You Might Also Enjoy…

✓ Graphics and Fonts Credit

YOU MUST HAVE POWERPOINT TO EDIT

Clip art and background cannot be edited.  

The way I use this resource…

In writing, I scaffold and model information to my students. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can’t do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I start with the basic rubric and introduce 1-3 new concepts each essay. Once I introduce a concept, I hold students accountable for the concepts I taught. If it appears that the majority of the class does not understand the concept, I do not hold them accountable and I reteach the concept. I try not to stifle their creativity by focusing on spelling, capitalization, and punctuation during the first two terms of school depending on the class. I also can easily use the 6 traits of writing with the rubrics. Make sure a topic that is relevant, relatable, and the reasons are researchable is chosen.

You can either laminate and reuse the conference card (quick guide) or cut them out and highlight/circle the remarks choice and staple to each student’s paper. The list can go on and on with the improvement suggestion list. There is an empty column that you can write in your most commonly used suggestions for your students.  

There are meeting schedule sheet/tracker, student anecdotal notes, teacher anecdotal notes, and a skill reteach form. The writing data and conference meeting trackers are editable. With the conference meeting tracker, you can write in check marks to make sure you met with all of your students.

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Apartheid and Segregation”

by Unitedtoteach

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

These civil rights battles occurred on two different continents, yet they have many similarities. While one civil rights battle occurred under “apartheid” in South Africa, another civil rights battle occurred under “segregation” in the United States. In this activity, students use their book and internet research skills to find out the similarities and histories behind the civil rights battles that took place on two separate continents. How were people’s voting, speech, housing, education and transportation rights infringed? Have rights been improved in recent years? Students answer these questions through this activity. While there is an “answer key” included, answers will vary.

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.

Holiday Musings
By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

For some of us, this is a joyful time, but there are many who are alone, and unhappy.  Some have no money to buy gifts and others are out in the cold with no homes.  It breaks my heart realizing that some people feel alienated from their families which can lead to depression and in extreme cases, suicide. Our kiddos aren’t immune, they see what’s going on and may not know how to deal.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “6th Grade Common Core Practice – RL.6.1, 3 mini-lessons”

by Mad Eye Moody Productions

6th Grade

 

 

Finally! Specific, targeted practice for Common Core or LAFS Reading: Literature 6th grade standard RL.6.1 with this NO PREP resource! These questions are specifically for this standard. These three mini-lessons use the research-based “model, guide, assess” (I do, we do, you do) instructional model. If you are tired of sifting through resources that have questions for multiple standards, only to find the one you’re looking for practice on isn’t included, this is the resource line for you. Each CIM has questions that only target the specific standard, so you know exactly what you’re getting!

This is a “CIM” (a Continuous Improvement Model) resource. It is designed to instruct and assess students’ mastery of CCSS.RL.6.1

→Important note: Because of how the state of Florida altered their standards (to become the LAFS), this tool IS appropriate for the LAFS as well. It aligns with LAFS.6.RL.1.1.

Want more CIMs and want to save some $$? You can purchase ALL my 6th grade RL and RI CIMs in my 6th grade CIM lessons super bundle:
6th Grade ALL Common Core Reading Standards Super Bundle

In this freebie CIM for RL.6.1, there are 3 lessons designed to take less than 10 minutes each. They can be done together on a single day or on 3-4 separate days.

Lesson 1: Teacher models how to find/cite strong evidence to support an inference based on a passage.

Lesson 2: Teacher walks students through finding/citing strong evidence to support an inference based on a passage.

Lesson 3: Students find/cite strong evidence to support an inference based on a passage – independently.

All three mini-lessons use excerpts from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, which is a 6th-grade appropriate text.

I know this seems like a large product to be a “freebie,” but there are only 10 pages of content on the teacher’s version. The rest of the pages are just student versions that can be printed and distributed.

This file is a .zip containing 3 separate files: the teacher version (with script), student version without answer choices (open-response), and student version with answer choices (multiple choice). Student versions may be printed, copied, and distributed as necessary for the purchasing teacher’s classroom.

The resource is in .pdf format.
