FREE MISC. LESSON – “Freebie: List of Beginning of the Year Ideas, Games and Activities”

by Gretchen Ebright

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

This free download is a list of ideas to get your year off to a great start! I have compiled a list of 20 activities that I use during the first few weeks of school – some of these can be repeated many times through out the year as well. It also includes a list of the 10 books that I like to read in the first weeks of school.
Many of these ideas need no materials or very little materials and little to no prep time.

Please note – this is not a product. This is a compilation of ideas that I have gained in over 20+ years of teaching. Any materials needed will most likely already be found in your classroom.

There are directions for a self control activity, a team work activity, alpha ball game, first day feelings activity etc….for a total of 20!

This is a .pdf file.

Free Back to School Literacy Lessons K-2

Hello my friends! Have you started to think about Back to School yet? (Has anyone ever really stopped?)

It’s an exciting time of year, and I always find it easier to sleep when I at least have the first few days planned out – and that involves getting to know my students. I like to find out who they are as people, how they feel about various aspects of school, get a glimpse of their skills, and most importantly – know how they’ll be getting home from school!

Disclaimer: This activity is by no means a guaranteed method of validating a child’s transportation arrangements for one day or the entire school year, but does make a nice introduction to a graphing activity.

 

I wanted to share this ten page Back to School literacy sampler with you, so you will have a window into some of the products I use with my K-2 students at the beginning of the year.

What else is in the BTS sampler?

 

I do not want to ruin the surprise, but I will tell you that this sampler could lead you to more free samples…especially if you like Sight-Word PreEmergent (Level aa) or Emergent (Level A and B) readers with sentence puzzles and fun follow ups. 

Ok, getting carried away now. Almost told you about the crazy fun game I’m making. But I didn’t! 

I will leave you with this thought, however. Start collecting smart phone boxes.

Enjoy summer for as long as you can!

Take care,

Ida Mae, aka


FREE MISC. LESSON – “{freebie} First Day of School Parent Letter – EDITABLE”

by My Happy Place

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

These simple parent letters are designed to help you and your students communicate with their parents about the first day of school. This freebie includes letters for preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade.

This is an editable PowerPoint document. You must have PowerPoint to use this file.

Each page contains two text boxes that you can fill with your own text prior to printing. Alternatively, you can delete the text in the boxes and print the page with no text if you would prefer to hand write your notes.

You can choose to prepare these notes in their entirety before the first day of school by filling the text boxes with information about what you have planned and what you want parents to know going forward.

If you would prefer, you can type a little note in the bottom text box, but leave the top box empty for your students to fill in at the end of the day.

A third option would be to use the bottom box to hand write a quick note about each particular child and how their first day went.

If you have any questions, you can use the “Ask a Question” feature on my store page or email me at MyHappyPlaceTeachingProducts@gmail.com.

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

 

Product Description

Poetry is a very subjective form of art. Some poems you love and others, you hate. What we need to realize is that this is the beauty of poetry. Poetry is not a mystery to be solved. Rather, it is the masterful manipulation of language that has the power to transform the ordinary and to immerse its reader into the world created by the author.

This HUGE bundle includes:

5 – 2 PowerPoint presentations – one multimedia presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) and the second to reinforce the use of imagery and symbolism (19 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

6 – Images to project or print

7- An end of the unit creative evaluation, which includes clear and concise directions and rubric. (In a Word document for easy modifications)

– An interactive multimedia Jeopardy game to review figurative language and poetic devices (PowerPoint – no internet required)

– A multimedia PowerPoint on how to read and interpret poetry

– A PowerPoint presentation on how to interpret symbols and imagery in literature (19 slides)

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Jack & the Hungry Giant {FREE book activity about the MyPlate nutrition program}”

by Loreen Leedy

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

MyPlate is the nutrition education program that has taken the place of the USDA’s Food Pyramid. My picture book, Jack & the Hungry Giant Eat Right with MyPlate, provides a kid-friendly introduction to MyPlate. Like the traditional fairy tale, Jack climbs up the beanstalk and enters the giant’s castle. The giant scoops him up, says “I’m hungry!” so the terrified Jack makes a dive for it. The giant catches him and advises him to be careful. Waldorf turns out to be a nice giant as well as a wonderful chef who is delighted to invite Jack to enjoy a healthy meal. The full color artwork has large illustrations of the fruits, vegetables, and other food groups as they’re being prepared.

For more info about the book, please see this post on my blog.

This FREE packet contains the I Can Fill Up My Plate! printables for students to respond to writing prompts and write lists of foods in the Fruit, Vegetables, Grains, Protein, and Dairy groups. Next they decide which foods to put on their plate. They label the foods and color the page. They may draw the foods or paste cut-outs in a collage. To make the book available in your school, please request it from your librarian.

Here are more resources related to Books!

Comment Bank

Comment Bank

 

Product Description

Do you run out of meaningful criticism for your students’ high school papers and work?

I created this comment bank because I had the same problem. After a little while, you don’t know what to write on a student’s test.

The Comment Bank has been constructed to save the Language Arts teacher time when offering constructive and helpful comments on students’ evaluations. Marking papers in any Language Arts class is always a lengthy process. Increasingly, teachers are being asked to write more detailed comments to highlight students’ strengths and weaknesses, and sometimes we run out of ideas. Being the vigilant teachers we are, and wanting to help our students achieve their potential is and will always be one of our priorities. To this end, when marking students’ papers, writing down everything we want to say to them about their papers would be a very lengthy process. I have decided to share my personal comment bank with you.

The bank comments on the following areas:

-Structure
-Communication
-The next step
-Mechanics
-Style
-Persuasion
-Analysis

The package contains 7 pages of comments, which are divided by levels of accomplishment A, B, C and D. (levels 100 to 50)

Included in this package are over 120 comments for students. You can get inspiration from these pages to handwrite your comments, or you can do what I do and copy/paste your comments into a word document, print, and staple the comment to the students’ evaluations. This is a real time saver. Parents, students, and school administration LOVE this method of feedback. And, this way, it takes much less time to be much more efficient. I hope you enjoy it!

Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Evaluating-a-Fish-bowl-Activity-in-a-Literature-Circle-694363

 

Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle

 

Product Description

The Fishbowl activity is mostly useful during literature circles or in a novel study. Quite literally, the group in the center is being watched by the rest of the class, while they are discussing elements of fiction. This activity is a very important tool in order to teach students how group discussions should run, what is to be said, and how it is to be said. Many times the leader of the discussion doesn’t know how to prompt members to elaborate upon their contributions. This will certainly help.

In addition, it is often difficult for a teacher to evaluate these discussions, which is the reason I have created this package. It is easy to use and you can merely check boxes to quickly assess each member of the groups.

This package contains:
• An explanation of The Fishbowl Activity
• How to run a Fishbowl Activity (within the realm of a literature circle)
• Why such an activity is important
• Evaluation sheets one can use to easily evaluate the discussions and roles of students

It’s teaching made easy!

Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

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.
