Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Parts-of-Speech-Grammar-Circles-Superhero-Themed-1919542

 

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 implimented 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 own 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.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Free Multiple Meanings Personal Dictionary”

by Janet Rainey

2nd – 5th Grade

 

 

I have reached some personal milestones recently on TPT and wanted to share one of my students’ favorite activities with my TPT followers!

My students love keeping track of the multiple meaning words they encounter in their readings as well as our daily discussions. I created this Multiple Meanings Personal Dictionary booklet for them when we come across a multiple meaning word that they want to further investigate.

I ran several copies of the multiple meaning template page back-to-back, stapled it to the cover page, and had students glue it into their interactive reading notebooks.

Now, whenever we come across a multiple meaning word of particular interest, we simply add it to our Personal Dictionaries.

Full size pages of the cover page and multiple meaning template have been included in this download as well as an additional booklet cover page if you prefer to not glue it into an interactive notebook.

Check out my store while you are here, and please consider following me for more engaging and educational activities!

Free Contract for Rewriting an Evaluation – Self-Evaluation

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Contract-for-Rewriting-an-Evaluation-Self-Evaluation-1199098

 

Contract for Rewriting an Evaluation - Self-Evaluation

 

Product Description

Contract for rewriting evaluations:

If your experiences are like mine, you often have students asking to redo work or to be given extra credit assignments. Personally, I believe in giving my students every opportunity to succeed. However, the sad reality is that students often decide to rely on our good and gracious nature and choose only to work after the fact. Meaning that students choose to “slack off” and retake the work later. In order to avoid this problem, I have created a self-evaluation sheet that students must complete (in detail) in order to have the opportunity to redo an evaluation. And, based on the students’ answers, the teacher can choose to allow a retake or not.
In addition, I often make students complete this sheet when first receiving a corrected evaluation (even when no retake is possible). It allows students to look at their work critically. In reality, a student who cannot identify his strengths and weaknesses won’t be able to successfully retake their evaluation or to do better on the next one.

It’s been a super useful tool for me. I have senior students who all expect to have 90% averages, which isn’t realistic. This helps me with both students, parents, and administration.

Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Posters

 

Product Description

Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Poster

Learning goals are important for our students’ education and learning. When we have a goal in mind when teaching, everything else serves a specific purpose, and everything seems to fall into place. As teachers, we are asked to display these learning goals in our classroom, but for me, this wasn’t possible.

With 30 plus students in my class, I didn’t have time to write my learning goals on chart paper or display them on the board. Hmmm… what’s a girl to do?

I created these posters to make my life, as well as yours, easier. This bundle offers ALL of the senior, (grade 12) goals and is in line with the Common Core as well as the Canadian curriculums.

The bundle includes:

A 14-page checklist of all of the learning goals, which can help the teacher keep track of what’s been covered and what hasn’t.

55 Learning Goal posters (8×11) that can easily be posted on the bulletin board or the chalkboard at the front of the class.

These posters allow students to track learn the focus of the lesson.

Three strands are covered: (with the focus of each poster clearly indicated)
1) Reading and Interpretation
2) Writing and Representation
3) Oral and Oral-Visual Communication

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “I Can Tell the Difference Between “b” and “d” Practice Packet”

by Sara Ipatenco

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

This packet, by Sara Ipatenco, can help students notice the differences by asking them to sort the two letters in a variety of ways. Use it as morning work, classroom practice or homework.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Playground FREEBIE”

by Playground FREEBIE

Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

FREE: Opinion Writing: Favorite Playground Activity FREEBIE —

This activity is connected to CCGPS ELACCKW1: Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are “writing” about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book. The topic for this opinion writing page is “playground activities.” These opinion writing activities are great to put in a writing center for students to choose which pictures to use to give their opinions about. This includes a title page and 1 page containing picture choices of two playground activities including swinging and sliding. Students tell which they think is the best. The page says “In my opinion (it shows the two picture choices) _____is better because…,” then it has six blank lines for students to write on to tell why they think their choice is the best. Students love telling which item they like the best. This activity encourages students to give the reason why they think their choice is the best. Teachers can also use these writing activities as a whole class activity. Assigning these activities for a homework assignment can include parents in helping increase their child’s writing skills. However you choose to use these activities, I hope your students develop a love for writing.

Rhythm in Poetry

Rhythm in Poetry

Product Description

Teach students the importance of rhythm in poetry.

This lesson includes Emily Dickenson’s “If I Could Not Stop for Death” as well as Pearl Jam’s “Last Kiss” lyrics to discover (hands on) the importance of rhythm in poetry. Often, Language Arts teachers are weaker in this area because it is a little more technical than merely looking at the language.

The lesson includes:
– a detailed lesson plan for the teacher
– student notes (the poems) and activities
– an annotated copy of the poems as well as a comprehensive answer key

The entire unit contains 6 pages and it will most likely take two periods to complete.

This lesson is part of a larger unit:

I hope you enjoy it!
