8 Things You Can Do Now to Prepare for Next School Year

 

As we prepare for summer vacation, many teachers will spend hours cleaning out file cabinets, going through supplies, disassembling bulletin boards, and preparing their classrooms for summer storage. While most of us are focused on making it to the last day of our contracts so that we can turn-in our keys and start our long-awaited summer vacation, the most resourceful teachers will use this time to get a head start on preparing for next school year. Now, I know what you’re thinking—Shametria, I’m ready to wave goodbye to this school year and watch it fade away in my rearview mirror. I get it. I totally understand, but now is a great time to complete some of the tasks that we never have time for when we return in August—even with the best of intentions. With this in mind, I want to share eight ways you can get a jump start on next school year.

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.

Getting Ready to Wrap-up the Year: Year-in-Review

Whether you have a few days, weeks, or months left of the 2016-2017 school year, things are definitely winding down. For many of us, May is filled with field trips, field days, awards ceremonies, and other special events and assemblies. It’s an exciting time but can be accompanied by a long, and sometimes stressful, end-of-the-year to-do list. As you begin to plan for the remaining days, I want to share a few fun activity ideas to wrap-up the school year.

Surviving the Last Weeks of School

By: Shametria L. Routt, The Routty Math Teacher

 

It’s April!! For me this month means a time for celebration—it’s my birth month. For many Americans though, it’s a most dreaded time of the year because it means that they have to send a very large check to the government for the amount of tax debt they did not pay during the 12 months of 2016. For teachers, it means we are entering the home stretch and the last weeks of the school year. Now, any parents who have happened upon this blog post are saying—why is this a problem. But, as teachers, we all know that:

Last weeks of the school year = Crazy time!

Managing student engagement and behaviors at the end of the school year can be a challenge for even our most experienced teachers. Trust me when I say that keeping them engaged is how to win the battle. The more engaged they are in tasks that are both developmentally appropriate and challenging, the less off-task behavior they will display.

Having been an educator for the past 14 years and experiencing 14 end-of-year crazy times, I would like to share some of my favorite problem solving and critical thinking strategies I used to keep my students engaged during the last weeks of the school year.

Social Skills All Year

by Kathy Babineau

Grades KG – 5th

 

This kit contains 240 cards covering seasonal scenarios and topics. For each month of the year (including summer months), there are 4 Topic Talker cards, 4 Role Playing cards, 4 Facial Expression/Body Language cards, 4 Problem Solver cards, and 4 Perspective Taker cards, for a total of 20 cards for each month of the year. Cards are simply marked with the month of the year, but they can also be mixed and matched throughout the year if you would rather not focus on themes.

The Topic Talker Cards offer suggested topics of conversation, many of which are related to timely topics and holidays. Some other generic school based topics have been included in order to be sensitive to students who may not observe particular holidays. These topic talker cards are helpful for students who are trying to work to maintain on-topic exchanges with peers, addressing attention to conversation and even general expressive and receptive language.

The Role Playing cards also address many timely topics. When using the Role Playing cards, I like to have multiple teams role play the same scenes, because there may be several correct ways to “act out” the situation. It is also fun sometimes to role play the situation in an inappropriate way and then discuss why it may be hurtful or inappropriate or offensive. Be sure to brainstorm and discuss how body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice and word choice are all important to communication.

The Facial Expression/Body Language cards are fun to use to think about and practice ways that we communicate with our faces and our bodies.

The Problem Solver cards offer students opportunities to think about social situations, analyze the problem and generate practical solutions. There is not always just one correct answer to these problems.

The Perspective Taker cards encourage students to put themselves in a situation or in someone else’s shoes and decide how they might feel.

To use this kit, simply print out all sheets and then cut apart and laminate (optional) the cards, and you are good to go! They are all in black and white (except the cover page) to go easy on the color copying budget.

I hope you like this and find it helpful when working with your students!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Poetry Lesson Mother’s Day Card + Poetry for Older Students/Teens, Sub Plan”

by Laura Randazzo

7th – 12th Grade

 

 

Remember the Mother’s Day cards we made back in elementary school? Let’s revisit that tradition for our middle- and high-school students with these print-and-go materials that’ll make a bunch of moms (or stepmoms/grandmas/aunties/loving women) smile on their special day.

Included:
• A student handout featuring 10 slices of poetry about mothers/feminine power.
• Six coloring pages that fold in half to become cards (Print on white paper, colored paper, or cardstock – grab whatever’s available in the copier room and go!)

Suggested lesson procedure:
1. Begin by handing out the page that includes 10 bits of poetry, giving students a few minutes to read them all.
2. Have students choose the poem that reminds them most of their mom/closest maternal figure.
3. Give students a choice of card designs.
4. Inside the card, have them write a loving note to the recipient and include the lines of poetry in their best handwriting.
5. With any remaining time in class, have students color the front of the card with colored pencils or sharp-tipped markers. The coloring portion can be completed in class if time allows or sent home for students to complete on their own time.

Tip: When printing the cards, choose “Print Full Size” on your printer settings. If you choose “Scale to Fit” (the default on many printers), your cards may have unevenly spaced borders.

These pages also work great as print-and-go sub plan materials.

LANGUAGE ARTS IDEAS – Fun Easter phrasing and fluency activities!

http://thatfunreadingteacher.com/easter-fun-fluency-rhythm-rhyme/
Copyright: denisnata / 123RF Stock Photo[/caption]

Easter is a great time to have fun with phrasing and fluency with early readers. Grab your bunny ears and check these out!

Use poetry, music and movement!

Remember the Hokey-Pokey song? Years ago I rewrote it into The Bunny Hop for my Kindergarten students. It works particularly well if modeled and students are given the opportunity to echo it back the first few times before giving them a paper with the text (to color – you’ve got to do the actions!):

 

Click here to grab it free! 
(Black and white version included with it – ideal for poetry folders!)
Bunny ear construction is off the charts in the craft center when this song is in season – be ye warned! Everyone wants to be the bossy bunny who gets to say, “Stop!”
Seize teachable moments to model and emphasize phrasing

Certain phrases just belong together, don’t they? All about the seems to be one such phrase.

When Meghan Trainor was singing I’m All About the Bass every time I turned on the radio in 2014,  there was no getting it out of my head.  This Fun, Fluency Reader version practically wrote itself as I drove in to school listening to Trainor’s voice every day.

My students knew the tune instantly. I modeled the first read to them, and we practiced a few phrases in isolation before it was fluent and perhaps a little too fun…

There is a twist on a familiar Fairy Tale in this book that made the kids laugh (but humor is a topic for another day…).

Limitation of liability: It’s all about the Eggs is not recommended for those who are prone to getting songs stuck in their head or with one last nerve.

Encourage oral language beyond one word.

Encourage kids to speak in sentences and phrases by asking questions and modeling answers. Kids mimic the adults in their lives (cringe – I’ve heard my own phrases from the mouths of babes a few too many times, have you?). When hunting for an Easter Egg, asking ‘Where is it?’ may elicit a reply of ‘there’ from a little one, but an adult can follow with the modeling of a phrase or phrases, for example: “Oh, yes, it’s under the chair’ for a gentle teachable moment.

While teaching special education to a student with prepositional language goals on an IEP, one of my students did have Easter egg hunts in my resource room to ‘practice’ for Easter.

What are some of your favorite phrasing and fluency boosters?

Happy Easter everyone!

  Zen Classroom

  By Retta London of Rainbow City Learning

                                                               

Some ideas for bringing peace and calm to your classroom, using practices found in yoga.

 

                                                                           A Disciplined Child is a Happy Child                                                                               

  By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern                                                                  

 I can’t express enough that one of the worst things a teacher can do is to prejudge a class or a student before they even enter the room. Let’s face it, some kids get along better with some teachers than they do with others, so it’s better to listen but with a grain of salt and                                                                                           make your own judgment.

by Green Grubs

1st – 4th Grade

 

 

Celebrate St Patrick’s day this year by going on a clover hunt!

Your class will love folding and assembling this teeny-tiny-one-cut booklet that’s filled with facts about shamrocks and clover…. (e.g. you probably know that 4 leaf clovers are quite rare, but did you know that the world record for the most leaflets on a clover is 56?!!) After assembling and illustrating your pages, head outside to find a clover leaflet to complete your booklet. May the ‘luck of the Irish’ be with you this Saint Patrick’s day!

Looking for other outdoor resources? You might want to have a peek at these:
