Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

 

Product Description
Superhero themed Parts of speech Grammar Circle Unit

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit grammar in with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages, and then we would correct them together. It was tedious, and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and Learn grammar. Although this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do other than to facilitate and supervise.

Once these circles have been implemented and students know who their group members are and what they are supposed to do, it is a great prep to leave a supply teacher.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (27 pages)

Activities included focus on:

-nouns
-adjectives
-verbs
-adverbs
-prepositions
-conjunctions
-putting in all together
-correct use of pronouns
-who and whom
-that and which
-who’s and whose
-that and who
-pronoun case
-pronoun agreement
-active and passive voice
-verb tenses (present, past, future)
-verb uses (consistency in verb tenses)

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their work and learn from one another.

Also included are free Superhero Themed Parts of Speech Posters to decorate your class.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to learn parts of speech.

Hamlet Scene Summary Visual Notebook

 

Product Description

This resource has been created as a substitute for the traditional “questions and answers” method we are used to. As teachers, our goal is to make sure students understand the important elements from the play, but we also want to engage them in a “hands-on” fashion.

Studies demonstrate that Sketch noting and doodling help students retain information and understand concepts better than simply answering questions.

This resource allows students to complete notes during the reading process and use the images and heading provided to help them know what the focus should be on.

This is also an excellent study and review tool.

Included in this resources is: 

-a note taking page for every scene in the play
-a note taking page for every soliloquy in the play
-a comprehensive answer key for all scenes and soliloquies

Poetry Unit for Intermediate Students

Poetry Unit for Intermediate Students

 

Product Description

2 weeks of thinking done for you. This unit is appropriate for grades 9 and 10

Looking for a meaningful and effective way to teach poetry? This unit is a fun way to learn and experiment with figurative language. It uses a mixture of contemporary songs and traditional poetry to teach students about themes and to help them learn the various forms of poetry. The creative, hands-on activities also focus on the importance of having a voice and using it properly. I use this with my grade 9 students to expose them to poetic language and different types of poetry, but also to get them thinking of theme in terms of being courageous and standing up for what you believe. All poem deal with similar themes to help students understand that poetry gives us a voice. Our words have power. They have the power to heal, and they have the power to hurt, which means that we have a choice to make.
The unit covers subjects such as bullying, courage, standing up for yourself and others, standing up for one’s convictions and discovering what is important to students. You will have some very thought-provoking discussions with students.

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 MISC. LESSON – “Background Starter Set – FREEBIES!”

by Science Girl Lessons

Looking for that perfect “POP” to your TpT product? See if some of these backgrounds will work for you and your latest TpT products. Each background is a vector illustration, in PNG, 300dpi format. Vector illustrations are superior to other formats because they can be enlarged far more than traditional clip art, which becomes pixelated when enlarged. Vector illustrations don’t become pixelated. These graphics fit perfectly on a 8.5 X 11 digital paper.

Included in this package:
-6 different digital papers
-Terms of Use & Button

This zip file contains PNG and PDFs only. If you are having problems opening this zip file, please take a look at this first (Zip File Help). If you are still having problems, don’t hesitate to e-mail me at sciencegirllessons@gmail.com.
