FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Discussion Prompt Cards FREE”

by Rainbow City Learning

3rd – 5th Grade

Let these adorable gnomes lead the way as your students discover and express feelings of gratitude. In the full resource, you will find prompt cards, a SCOOT game, posters, notecards, and a Photo Booth activity all inside this motivating resource.

As they answer and discuss the prompt cards, students will reach inside to activate empathy, generosity, and open hearts and minds. They will find the magic that awaits in doing good deeds and the joy that can be found in ordinary tasks.

The FREE SAMPLE contains four discussion/writing prompt cards to try in your classroom.

The full resource can be found here: Grateful Gnomes

In the full resource, you will find the following:

  • Use the 28 cards as discussion prompts, writing prompts, or to play a SCOOT game. The cards would be a great addition to your morning meeting (or whatever community time you have). Just discuss one card per day. The cards may also be used as quickwrite prompts or journal entries.
  • The SCOOT game can be played as a prewriting or pre-dicussion activity, giving each child a beginning response. Card backs , response page, and BREAK cards are included.
  • Use the posters as inspiration while you are working through the activities in this resource.
  • Have some fun with the photo booth gnome hat props, and create a unique and meaningful display for your bulletin board or hallway. Attach the hats (after cutting out) to a cardstock band or headband. Then take a photo of the student wearing the hat. Four example posters are included to demonstrate how to combine a “Photo Booth” picture with a statement of one way that each student is grateful.
  • Use the “Grateful” blank cards for you and your students to send messages of gratitude to each other.
  • All resources are included both in full color and black/white.

The thumbnails below show the full paid resource.

Wishing you a season and year ahead of gratitude!

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.

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 MATH LESSON – “FREE Math Counting How Many More To Make Ten? Pilgrim Color 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.

The way I use this resource…
In writing, I scaffold and model information to my students. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can’t do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I start with the basic rubric and introduce 1-3 new concepts each essay. Once I introduce a concept, I hold students accountable for the concepts I taught. If it appears that the majority of the class does not understand the concept, I do not hold them accountable and I reteach the concept. I try not to stifle their creativity by focusing on spelling, capitalization, and punctuation during the first two terms of school depending on the class. I also can easily use the 6 traits of writing with the rubrics. Make sure you choose a topic that is relevant, relatable, and the reasons are researchable.
Next, I introduce the peer editing checklist. I have students pair up and exchange papers. I have clipboards students can use while they sit around the room for this activity. It’s important for you to model for the students how to peer edit. Many times students just want to be nice and not give feedback. However, this is a great opportunity for students to read each others essays and learn from each other. I try not to let the same students peer edit with each other every time in order for students to view a variety of styles over the school year.
Finally, you are able to print front and back! Then you can cut them in half to save on paper. For example, pages 12 and 13 are the same rubric. Simply print it from your computer or printer as two-sided. If this does not work for you, print the first rubric for a full page rubric.
Happy Teaching!

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!
