FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Christmas Paper Chain Connections”

by Laura Candler

In this seasonal literacy activity from Laura Candler, students make connections while reading and write their connections on slips of paper. They link their connections together to form a long paper chain that can be used to decorate a Christmas tree. The Paper Connections activity would work well in a literacy center or as a part of a holiday “reading marathon.” Complete directions are included.

FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE Math Counting How Many More To Make Ten? Pilgrim Black and White Version”

by Learning Harbor Resources for Teachers

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

This task card activity provides counting and fine motor skill practice at the same time. A student looks at the number of objects that the character is holding, then he counts on to see how many more are needed to make ten. The student can mark his answers by clipping a clothes pin onto the answer, by covering the answer with a mini eraser, button, or any small game markers that you have in your classroom. I suggest laminating the cards for durability. If the cards are laminated, the students can circle the correct answer with a wipe off marker or crayon. To make the cards self-correcting put a small sticker or draw a star over the correct answer on the back of the card.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE DOWNLOAD : Thanksgiving FREEBIE”

by Sherry Clements

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

FREE: Thanksgiving Fix it Up Sentences (Capital Letters & Ending Punctuation) — 

This activity is connected to the CCGPS ELACCKL2a,b. Capitalize the first word in a sentence and the pronoun I and recognize and name ending punctuation. This is a one page Thanksgiving FREEBIE. It has a simple story including five sentences. The sentences are not written correctly. The first letter in each sentence is not capital, important names are not capitalized, and the ending punctuation is missing. Have your students rewrite each sentence correctly. Begin each sentence and important names with a capital letter and add the correct ending punctuation. The sentences used contain frequently used sight words and other decodable words that students should be able to read. These activities are great for morning work, literacy centers, or for a quick mini lesson on including capital letters and ending punctuation in sentences. Students can read the story to a partner or to the teacher after correcting the sentences. Students could also add other details to the story using the back of their paper.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy this FREEBIE. Please take just one moment to leave me some feedback. I really appreciate your comments! Come back and get the rest of my freebies. I hope you can use some or ALL of them in your classroom.
