by Mrs Thompson’s Treasures

Pre-Kindergarten – Kindergarten

❤️ This is a sample page. The full set of pre-primer and primer words can be found here: 
Sight Words Interactive Notebook 

⭐ Interactive Notebooks can be fun, engaging, and meaningful, but they can also be a lot of cutting, gluing, small pieces of paper, and a big mess! I’ve designed this Easy Interactive Notebook to keep it fun and engaging, but not quite so overwhelming!

⭐ Everything you need for each word is on one page. Students will cut what they need as they go, so no small papers will get lost or accidently thrown away in the trash! 

⭐ This is the perfect interactive notebook for those of you wanting something fun and simple for your students to make so they can keep their work together in one place! 

⭐ For each word, students will read, trace, write, make, find, color, and use it in a sentence! By interacting with the words in many different ways, they will be more likely to remember and recognize them! 

✅ This sample download includes the word “jump” for you to try out!

Poetry Unit

Product Description

Poetry Unit for Senior Students (Bundled)

I love poetry! I love reading it, I love teaching it, and I love the discussions I can have with my students because of it. May students (and some teachers) dislike poetry because they think it’s too difficult. I once had a student tell me that poetry was like a “code” that needed to be unlocked. Cringe!! Some poems are meant to be analyzed. Some poems and meant to sound beautiful, and some poems are meant to be simple and enjoyed for what they are. This unit has a little of all of those things.

Students love this poetry unit. It is a complete unit with no prep required on the teacher’s part. This 2 week unit includes a student guide, 12 detailed lesson plans, a multimedia presentation (no internet connection required), a complete answer key with annotated poems (this is a teacher favorite!) , and an end of the unit evaluation with answer key.

Just print it and teach it. It really is that easy.

This bundle includes individual lessons devised to teach students the importance of:

• Figurative language (its uses and effects)

• How to read poetry

• The importance of rhythm

• The importance of tone and attitude in a poem

• Types of poetry

• How to analyze poetry

• How to appreciate poetry (even when you don’t understand it)

This unit’s focus is the analysis of poetry and teaches students how to make inferences, which is a skill they must learn for their other subjects as well.

Poems include authors such as Emily Dickinson, Dorothy Parker, Thomas Gray, Lord Alfred Tennyson, Alfred Noyes, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Frost, and Walt Whitman.

The unit has been conceived to last 15 days – with 65 minute periods (although they are easy to modify).

The unit includes:

1 – The teacher guide (Contains 12 comprehensive lesson plans to teach the poems included in the unit. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH THIS UNIT HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU. )

2 – The student package (Contains students’ notes, poems, and questions) (28 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities, as well as an example of paragraph developing a theme in poetry (saving you time).

4 – Included is a test with multiple choice questions as well as one development question. All answers are included. (Word format for easy changes)

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

A total of 68 pages + 36 slides are included in this package.

This unit is complete and does all of the thinking for you. All you need to do is to print out and photocopy the student package, and you’re set.

Check out these individual lessons from the unit:

Poetry and Imagery – Langston Hughes

Tone in poetry – Robert Frost

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Research Graphic Organizer: Better than a Notecard”

by Spark Creativity

7th – 10th Grade

Want students to avoid plagiarism when using research in class assignments? The struggle is real, for you and them. But I’ve made you something to help.

Go one up on the traditional notecard by giving students copies of this graphic organizer to keep track of their research and attribute sources easily. A notecard just isn’t much of a guide, but this handout is!

On the page, students have room to write down...

  • Quotations (with page numbers!)
  • Big Ideas (with page numbers!)
  • Takeaways in their own Words
  • Full Citation Information for their Source

By having students use these instead of notecards, and then having them put away all their source materials before writing, you give them the best chance possible of avoiding plagiarism and keeping their research nicely organized.

___

This is a brand new product for me, so I hope you’ll consider leaving a review. It’ll earn you credits for future purchases, make me soooo happy to have your opinion, and help other teachers understand whether this is the right activity set for their classroom. If there’s an issue with the product that I can correct for you, please reach out to me at betsy@nowsparkcreativity.com.

Thanks!

FREE MATH LESSON – “Kite Fact Families: Sums of 8, 9, 10”

by Tessa Maguire

Kindergarten – 1st Grade

These kite fact families are perfect for an interactive bulletin board or centers board. Print and laminate all of the pieces. Mount the kites on a bulletin board or a magnetic board. Use a piece of yarn or piece of fabric for the tail. Place the tail bows in a bucket. Students draw a bow and place it on the correct kite.

If you use this as a bulletin board, I think you should use velcro on the tail and the bows. If you are using it on a magnetic board, you can just place magnetic tape on the back of the bow.

I love teaching Shakespeare’s plays, and I want you to love it too. I’ve been teaching and improving this unit for over ten years. All of the thinking has been done for you.

The activities are thorough, but simple enough for students to understand and enjoy the play.

I have also included an introduction to the play, a student guide, a teacher guide with detailed lesson plans, quizzes, a creative assignment, and tests (all with answers and evaluation grids), and a comprehensive answer key.

A creative Hamlet Guess Who? Game to help students understand the characters. (What’s fun about this game is that it can be played from the beginning of the play right to the end, and students’ answers will change depending on the act they are reading.) LOTS OF FUN!

-A comprehensive answer key for all questions and activities. (24 pages)

FREE MATH LESSON – “(Not your ordinary…) Geometric Shape Bingo”

by Amy Bratsos

2nd – 5th Grade

I am very excited to share the revised version of my Geometric Shapes Bingo! The concepts and vocabulary remain the same, but the game and clue cards are redesigned using Powerpoint, giving the product a more attractive, kid-friendly “face lift”!!
This is NOT your ordinary Bingo game! This set includes 10 different reproducible Bingo cards with the traditional format of 24 squares and a “free space” in the middle. Each of the squares has a word or a picture of a different polygon, including such shapes as squares, rectangles, circles, trapezoids, rhombuses, right triangles, scalene triangles, isosceles triangles, obtuse triangles, pentagons, hexagons, and octagons, There are 70 clue cards that the teacher reads and the students choose a corresponding square to cover- here is where the CHALLENGE begins! More than half of the clues can be answered correctly with more than one shape, so not only does the student have to be able to identify and classify shapes, s/he has to think strategically in order to cover the shape that increases the chances of filling an entire horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row. For example, the clue “this shape always has at least one right angle” could describe a right triangle, a square, or a rectangle, In addition to definitions using geometry vocabulary,the clues offer a variety of opportunities for higher level thinking. Knowledge of calculating perimeter and area, as well as familiarity with angle measurement are necessary to answer several of the clues.

The Common Core Standards challenge teachers to provide many opportunities for identifying, classifying, comparing, and problem solving using shapes, and this Bingo game is a good resource to use as a fun opportunity for students to practice these skills. I was very excited to stretch my own mathematical thinking as I created this game, and am enthusiastically working on other engaging and challenging lessons and activities to help our students gain a deep understanding of geometry.
This set includes
-10 colored reproducible game cards (because each clue has many possible answers, more than one student having a duplicate card isn’t a problem)
– Instructions for the traditional game, as well as several variations of the game to provide differentiation for a variety of skill and grade levels
-70 reproducible clues 

The colored game cards produce a nice grayscale copy, but if you prefer blackline masters I would be happy to provide you with those free of charge.

Thank you for your interest in this game- I hope your students enjoy it and you see measurable growth in their ability to describe, identify,and classify shapes!

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Back to School Activity Fun Pack”

by DP Sharpe

Kindergarten – 4th Grade

Here is a fun little pack of interactive activities that your students can complete during the first few days of school. They will help fill the void as you take care of back to school essentials such as form filling and parents. 

Included in the pack are three Let’s Lace Up activity cards. The cards are really a fun way of completing the basic matching activity that we do all the time. Instead of using pencil and paper, the students use string to join the items on each column together. The string will match the answer sheet on the back if they are laced correctly. Two of the cards feature back to school pictures and words that the students will match, and the last card features back to school compound words. These are great hands on, self-checking, interactive activities for your students. There is also a direction sheet included in the download. Students will have fun with these cards during the first days of school.

The bookmark features more back to school words; after completing they can be laminated, and of course it can be a useful tool. 

Welcome your students with a tasty back to school treat. Fill sandwich bags with lucky charms cereal then staple the bag topper onto the bag after cutting and folding on the line. The back of the bag topper gives an explanation of each marshmallow shape. The bag topper is made for regular sandwich bags that measure about 7 x 8. There are two versions included: “Welcome to School” and “Welcome Back to School”. I have also included a note that I place inside each bag for the students to read or to have an adult read to them. Students are always excited to receive this treat and will also have fun filling out the bar graph worksheet which can be done as a homework assignment or in class. 

Thanks for downloading and I hope your class enjoys this fun pack as my class does!
