When you purchase the Google Slides Warm Ups, you will download a PDF with instructions on how to access the warm ups. There will also be a link for the teacher version of the warm ups with the answers. There are not worked out solutions on the keys – just the answers.

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Product Description

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Very often, students have difficulty with the analysis process involved in literature. Where they not only have to analyse, but now have to apply their newfound skills to a well-developed paragraph, some students become overwhelmed with the process.

This particular activity will focus on both the analysis and writing a paragraph using the PEEL method.

Paragraph writing and analysis are two essential components in essay writing. To facilitate this process, I have created a lesson where students can become more comfortable with the revision process through modelling the proper steps from beginning to end. The lesson includes a modelling of the writing process from understanding the topic to the final draft. See preview for details

This lesson can only be used after students have read chapter 19 from the novel Frankenstein.

Poetry Unit for Intermediate Students

Product Description

2 weeks of thinking done for you. This unit is appropriate for grades 9 and 10

Looking for a meaningful and effective way to teach poetry? This unit is a fun way to learn and experiment with figurative language. It uses a mixture of contemporary songs and traditional poetry to teach students about themes and to help them learn the various forms of poetry. The creative, hands-on activities also focus on the importance of having a voice and using it properly. I use this with my grade 9 students to expose them to poetic language and different types of poetry, but also to get them thinking of theme in terms of being courageous and standing up for what you believe. All poem deal with similar themes to help students understand that poetry gives us a voice. Our words have power. They have the power to heal, and they have the power to hurt, which means that we have a choice to make.
The unit covers subjects such as bullying, courage, standing up for yourself and others, standing up for one’s convictions and discovering what is important to students. You will have some very thought-provoking discussions with students.
This unit uses poetry to help students have a better understanding of themselves and to stand up for things they believe in. 

The files are in PDF format and are zipped for convenience. 

-1 set of « I HAVE, Who has? » cards to help students remember figurative language in a fun way. (1 set of instructions for the game)

-A comprehensive teacher guide with 11 complete and detailed lessons (no prep required) – (8 pages) – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH THIS UNIT HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU

-A student package that contains ALL notes, poems, and handouts students will need for the unit (18 pages)

The end unit evaluation is in Word format along with the evaluation rubric for easy modifications. The final unit evaluation is a written poem and poetry reading, where students’ voices can be heard. 

-A detailed Answer Key with notes, annotated poems, and answers to questions and activities. (8 pages)

Spelling Flip Book

Product Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flip book when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.

It’s teaching made easy!

Free: 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.

It’s teaching made easy!

FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE Weekly Word Problems May {4th Grade Edition}”

by Ashleigh

3rd – 5th Grade

Weekly Word Problems are my absolute FAVORITE way to teach word problems! These word problems have become an essential component to my classroom instruction!
***************************************************************************
Weekly Word problems allow students to practice their word problem skills each day. The May version contains a mixture of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division word problems, and all operations include larger numbers that require students to apply their computation skills. In this activity, students solve 3 word problems a day, and on Fridays they write their own word problem for a specific operation. There are 4 weeks worth of word problems in this product. All of the word problems have spring or summer related theme. An answer key is included.

***************************************************************************
What’s Included
Since I want my students to be able to solve the word problems independently, the August word problems are primarily a review of third grade math. In September, students begin to add and subtract larger 4-digit numbers, while the multiplication and division problems are centered around basic math facts. I add larger multiplication problems in the October version, and by November students are multiplying 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers and 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. I’ve also added 3-digit division problems, as well as a few multi-step word problems!

You can buy a bundle for the entire year here!
