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!

About Gifts…

screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-1-25-30-pmAcross from me at a parent-teacher conference, she sat crying. This single mom was relating how she was unable to buy the most desired gift for her child—a pair of very expensive tennis shoes.

I tried to remind her about all the important things that parents can give to their children which do not cost money and are much more valuable. Later, I started thinking that those priceless gifts might be important reminders for other parents in our materialistic culture.

christmas-carols

 

CHRISTMAS CAROLS! (FUN PACKET FOR ALL INCLUDING SPANISH ELL’S) presents selections from Christmas carols in English as well as gives the Literal (word-for-word) Spanish, which makes it easier for students of Spanish-language backgrounds to understand the English words in the carols better and thus be able to more easily and quickly learn them and get an accompanying boon for their vocabulary and grammar. Some German carols have also been added, with the Literal English given for them.

Contents: Angels We Have Heard On High, Deck The Halls, The First Noel, Go Tell It On The Mountain, Jingle Bells, Jolly Old St. Nicholas, Joy To The World, O Christmas Tree, Silent Night, The Twelve Days Of Christmas, Upon The House Top, We Wish You A Merry Christmas; then come:

REASONS TO CONSIDER PURCHASING FROM THIS STORE: 1. Tons of resources, 2. so much reusable over the years ahead, 3. buying it is more convenient than trying to make it yourself, 4. students enjoy the fun components so that they stay more on task learning more and better, 5. most word searches have a format helping teach information with the words, 6. most resources have reading components tied into with other components making them more handy and helpful, 7. They have an attractive, professional appearance, 8. Many resources have some Spanish to help ESL/ELL students to not be totally left out; 9. the prices are right; and, 10: you’ll love it that your students stay busy learning like happy bees at the honey hive of knowledge, your classroom, even as they have in mine since these have been teacher and students-tested.

THE SPANISH used in some resources in my store is more the informal Latino Spanish actually used by most students from Latin America than the formal Castillian of Spain; so there are some differences in grammar, spelling and or vocabulary even as there are with American and British English.

No-prep printables – Reading and Writing for Christmas!

2x Xmas Preview - Copy

Happy (almost) holidays, my friends. Have you noticed an excitement in the air? My students definitely have the Christmas Spirit, and are always thrilled to have some fun seasonal activities do to recognize it!

I run Early Literacy Intervention groups with students from grades 1-3. While we do guided reading and writing, and play skill-building games, once in a while I do like to have them do some worksheets that I can keep a copy of in their files. We are currently working through both of the packages shown in the picture above and they are enthusiastic with the variety of activities at their ‘just-right’ level, too.

Here is a close up of the North Pole Reading and Writing Fun preview:

…and one of the Nativity Reading and Writing Fun preview:

The kids are having a lot of fun with these, thanks to the wonderful clip art by Edu-clips.com. They can’t wait to color the pictures!

Each of these packages come with the following tip sheet:

MISC LESSON: “Check out our Holiday Crafts”

Right now, over at my blog, you will see that I have linked up with a few other bloggers to share with you our exciting holiday crafts we make in the classroom each year!

For instance, I love to make these adorable reindeer made from a hanger and knee high pantyhose!  It’s so simple and inexpensive.  My kiddos love it every time!

Then I have this craft on there that only requires a spoon, markers, and a few craft items!  It’s so adorable.  I add a candy sucker to mine for a special treat to my little ones!

Head on over to my blog (click here) to read about many more ideas for your classroom this holiday season!

FREE: Math lesson “Multiplication Freebie”

As the school year is winding down before winter break, you are probably looking at just review materials for your little ones!  I imagine if your kiddos are like mine, they are starting to shift around in their seat more and are talking waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much about break- as if they are already on it!  There is no way their brain is going to take in any new material right now!

multiplication facts, freebie, math, holiday

So, I created this Holiday Multiplication Math Freebie to review our multiplication facts (because they could really use some extra practice to get those facts down!) that is Christmas based to hold their attention a little as they work on it.

Some of the sheets I have used as morning work or a quick warm up!  I have not only included practice with their facts, but I have also added array practice and story problems!

Counting by 2s, phrasing, fluency and quotation marks with REINDEER!

Counting by 2s post

Have you ever noticed how perfectly the Santa’s reindeer and Rudolph stories lend themselves to teaching kids about counting by twos? The reindeer are paired up in the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer song and in Santa’s famous line at the end of the classic story Twas the Night Before Christmas. The teachable moment is just sitting in front us begging to be used!

Perhaps that is why I, That Fun Math Reading Teacher, have started passing on this Phrasing and Fluency Reader to teachers as a math resource as well. (For anyone who may have purchased it more than a year ago, please go back to your purchases page and download an updated version.)

Last year I was using 10 at the Sled primarily for the phrasing, fluency and fun factor. That is, after all, the purpose for which it was written in the first place. It can be sung to the tune of Ten in the Bed, and even if students are not familiar with the song, they do catch on to the simple melody quickly and enjoy the repetition. They also hear how certain words fall together naturally to create phrases.

TenattheSledacountingbysphrasingfluencyreaderandsong

After several requests for a black and white student booklet last year, I created one over the summer, using speech bubbles where there are quotation marks used in the color edition:


Th2 10 at Sled 1 Th3 10 at Sled

I wanted to show students what quotation marks really mean, in a visual way, rather than only telling them. I am finding that with this year’s students, this concrete approach has made a huge difference. We compare my color copy with their black and white copy and discuss how quotation marks and speech bubbles really serve the same purpose. *Lightbulb moment*!

The tone, expression (and curiously deep voices) they use when reading the ‘spoken’ lines are hilarious! But clearly, meaningful to them!

Thank you to all of the teacher bloggers who provided feedback during the Christmas in July sale that led to these revisions.

Enjoy these last two weeks!

Gift Yourself- from Brittany Washburn

Cyber Monday Prep

By Brittany Washburn

Grades K-8 Technology Integration

What teacher wants to spend the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas break lesson planning meaningful, engaging activities? We want to sit back and just make it to break without going gray.

This year, I want to help with that goal. These are my favorite low-prep technology-integrated activities that will impress your administrators without causing you one bit of stress.

This complete unit is great for upper elementary students. Each concept has an instructional video and foldable activity for an interactive notebook. The best part is that by the time your students have had all 14 lessons, they will be able to create the most incredible PowerPoint presentations without any of your help. Imagine how impressed their classroom teachers will be if you send them back with the ability to make a professional presentation without asking for help along the way!
Every student needs research skills. This 7 lesson unit provides them with all of the steps for responsible and effective online research and all of the work is done for you (the teacher). Simply load the Microsoft Word files to a password-protected page on your class website and then step back and watch the learning unfold. With right-there questions from the linked learning modules, your students can complete all 7 lessons independently. End the 7 weeks of lessons with a research project and I guarantee it will be the easiest 2 months of classes ever! (This assumes you see your students once a week like me- timeline may vary)
For your youngest students, teach them Microsoft Word skills with these instructional videos and Word templates. It will require your students to be readers so that they can follow simple text directions. I do these lessons with late first grade or beginning 2nd graders (sometimes both, depending on the group of students and their skill retention). Also note that I have similar units for PowerPoint and Excel.
I don’t know about how it is at your school, but this time of year when the technology breaks (projectors, laptops, iPads, etc.) teachers freak out. That is why I developed units that require very little of my input. I am always being pulled out of my classroom to go fix something. When a TA or a teacher has to trade places with me, I can walk away confidently because I know my students won’t need much help. These also make great substitute plans. Last school year I had to be out for a week unexpectedly, and it was so stress-free because I just used a unit like these for each grade level.
How do you stay sane this time of year? Are you organized in your planning? Do you have the required I Can Statements for your classes? Join my stress-free teaching lifestyle. You can thank me later 😉


p.s. Since I want this to be the best holiday season ever, I’m giving you an opportunity to win some money! Enter the giveaway below.
