By Mrs Grays Place 

ELA/Writing; Grades 5-8

If you want to get your students to think about the world around them and understand that everyone in the world has the same rights, but not everyone actually gets those rights, this is the unit to do this. Using explanatory writing as the genre of writing, students learn about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, while learning how to write different explanatory writing formats. This unit includes links to required media, a teach guide (with 21-day timeline) and a student book to get you started. The final assessment questions are also provided. Rubric/success criteria are to be developed with the class (I do not provide rubrics because of the differences in curriculum).

  

By A Teacher’s Teacher

ELA/Writing; Grades 7-10

Three great argumentative text sets in one great discounted bundle! With an emphasis on preparing students for state testing and performance tasks that have become a norm in formats such as AIR and PARCC, all three of these argumentative text sets provide multiple sources (3 or 4 each) with a task formatted to be much like what your students will see on their real state assessments! Specific details about each included text set can be found on the bundle’s specific product page.

By Learning Harbor Resources for Teachers

Math; Grades 1-2

This interactive, self-checking PowerPoint game will provide motivating and engaging practice!  The interactive game can be used by individuals, small groups and the whole class.  A recording sheet and answer sheet are provided.  Students click on an object on the homepage and are taken to a random problem; they can play in teams and/or you can project the game onto an interactive whiteboard and your students will be able to use the scorecard slide by making tally marks for correct answers. Check it out – this is a product sure to engage your students!

Genius Hour Project Guide for Upper Elementary Students – $4.00

By Mentoring in the Middle

ELA/Writing; Grades 5-8

Genius Hour. Time is a wonderful way to engage students in research that they want to do! This guide will prepare you for the steps they need to take. It may not prepare you for the enthusiasm and engagement your students will have for researching one of their interests or passions. This packet includes how to get started, an essential question, how to start your research, graphic organizers, and a teacher guide with notes. 

By Carefully Crafted

Math; Grades K-2

This is a perfect tool to use when helping your students familiarize themselves with the hundreds chart, recognizing colors (pink, gray, blue, orange, yellow, green, black, purple, brown, and red), and recognize numbers 0-100. These pictures are a fun and engaging way to reinforce number sense. These can be used at any time during the day–just print and go! It includes 12 total designs (Pencil, School Bus, School House, Scissors, Apple, Books, Chalk Board 123, Chalk Board AB, Clock, Crayons, Glue, and Lunchbox), 2 versions of the hundreds charts to color for each design: Numbered and Blank (students can fill in the blank chart on their own and then color), which is perfect for differentiation, as well as an answer key (mystery picture) for each.

As always, I encourage comments below and any ideas or suggestions by tweeting me @ATeachersTeach or contacting me via e-mail.

Teaching the Argument by Solving Mysteries

 

Product Description

Teaching the Argument by Solving Mysteries

This is a great introduction to any literature unit. It teaches students the proper approach to literary analysis, which can be used from grades 7 all the way to 12 in any levels of study.

This mini unit contains 8 lessons that teach students the proper way to form an argument. Many times students will use the right information, but they don’t quite know what to do with it. Through a series of crime scenes, students learn how to collect information (data), collect evidence, and explain how this evidence supports a logical conclusion, all while having fun. This unit teaches students skills that are needed in all literature units.
These lessons allow students to learn the importance of collecting data by taking careful notes, how to select only information that will help support a thesis (or a claim), and how to properly use the information by incorporating pertinent explanations to develop an irrefutable argument.

This is a fun way of learning the necessary skills for argumentation.
The unit contains:

A Student Guide with 12 pages of activities and notes
A Teacher Guide with 8 comprehensive lesson plans and activities
An answer Key with 13 pages of answers and sample texts to help model proper format for students
A downloadable Prezi Presentation introducing the argument and how to develop it.
An end unit evaluation with answer key and evaluation grid 6 pages
Material is available as both PDF and in Word format for easy modifications

Pages total 58 pages

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Journalism: Beat Sheet”

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

Because it is important for a school newspaper to cover all of the clubs and activities a middle or high school offers, this FREE Beat Sheet presents a succinct way for journalism students to find story ideas they can develop. Sometimes the info is quite brief, i.e. an announcement of up-coming events, so it is summarized in a column set aside for that purpose. Other times, the information sparks ideas for a news or feature piece. The Beat Sheet is an excellent way for newspaper staffs to find ideas and to plan for the next issue. Also, it offers first year students a chance to write for the paper, insuring their desire to remain a part of the journalism scene throughout their high school careers.

Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Evaluating-a-Fish-bowl-Activity-in-a-Literature-Circle-694363

 

Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle

 

Product Description

The Fishbowl activity is mostly useful during literature circles or in a novel study. Quite literally, the group in the center is being watched by the rest of the class, while they are discussing elements of fiction. This activity is a very important tool in order to teach students how group discussions should run, what is to be said, and how it is to be said. Many times the leader of the discussion doesn’t know how to prompt members to elaborate upon their contributions. This will certainly help.

In addition, it is often difficult for a teacher to evaluate these discussions, which is the reason I have created this package. It is easy to use and you can merely check boxes to quickly assess each member of the groups.

This package contains:
• An explanation of The Fishbowl Activity
• How to run a Fishbowl Activity (within the realm of a literature circle)
• Why such an activity is important
• Evaluation sheets one can use to easily evaluate the discussions and roles of students

It’s teaching made easy!

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.
