FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Aardvarks Clip Art and Reading Pack”

by J MASON EMERSON

Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

 

 

Aardvarks Clip Art And Reading Pack has 32 public domain images of aardvarks. There are color photos and black and white drawings. Insofar as instructions or suggestions go, you can enlarge or shrink the public domain images’ sizes, move the images around, etc. The images are handy for any classroom (Pre-K through higher ed) and any age or ability level but teachers of art and natural studies in science will likely regard them as being of special interest. Teachers of Pre-K students up will find them handy for using as reward stickers, for classroom décor, etc.

Sources for the aardvark public domain clip art here and in other similar publications include wpclipart.com, clker.com, wikipedia.org, plates from the 1800s works of John Gould, John James Audubon, various federal government agencies, and a few from myself. To summarize:

Contents: Aardvark Images (32, public domain); Quick Facts About Ardvaarks in first English then non-Castillian, Latin American Spanish which should help Spanish-speaking students in regular classes or ESL; Aardvark In Multiple Languages; Aardvark Board Game Template (similar to Candyland or Aggravation); 20 Ways To Teach With Clip Art About Aardvarks Etc; Details For Educational Games (including for teaching about aardvarks; Aardvarks Word Search; Answers Key For Aardvarks Word Search; True-False Test About Aardvarks.

If you don’t have ELL’s now, then you may later. This is dedicated to my wife Barbara, a science teacher for 28 years.

Girl! Shut your mouth! Ever have anyone tell you that? Nice girls don’t talk politics. Nice girls don’t stand up when they’re being abused by employers. Nice girls don’t speak up when it’s wrong for kids. Seriously? Speaking up doesn’t mean you’re a “B—-!” Come laugh, cry, and examine why women teachers believe those lies about “nice girls.”

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 LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Analyzing Fiction Activity: Tell Me a Story”

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

This FREE activity enables Middle School and High School students to develop both their analytic and creative skills.

First, the students review a list of 12 qualities of Strong Fiction and analyze their personal examples for each of the various criteria. For an activity that focuses on this aspect of writing, check out
Writing: Critique Group Exit Slip

Next, they write examples of Specific Characters, General Objects, Specific Objects, Adjectives, Abstract Nouns and Setting on 3′ x5′ pieces of construction paper color-coded to match the topics.

Finally, they select the basic bones of their story from the cards the class made in the prior segment of this activity and then they write either an individual story or a collaborative piece in groups of three. Whichever writing idea teachers don’t select can be used for another lesson at a later date. This idea will jump-start their thinking Writing: Start Strong!

This Common Core and Bloom’s Taxonomy aligned activity offers students a chance to analyze fiction for specific criteria, and to exhibit how they can combine these criteria with the elements of literature to create a durable story that SHOWS instead of TELLS.

Using a class-created Strong Fiction criteria list, students analyze writing for the qualities they chose as the most important, and then they create their own stories. Students love to tell stories. Let them do this in writing where they can combine their creative ideas with their growing writing and thinking skills.

Get more details about this idea on my blog:http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/2013/06/tell-me-story.html

Here’s another idea to download that will promote deeper comprehension as well as creative and narrative writing skills –
Writing Activity: Write Right-Great Beginnings!
