FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Sample – Teaching Inferring “What am I?””

by Kyp McLaren

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

 

 

Understanding how to make an inference from text is often difficult for children. Children make inferences all the time without realizing exactly what they are doing. It is important to share with them that making inferences is like being a detective. You look at all the evidence or clues and put them together along with their background knowledge to come up with an idea about a situation or problem. This packet is filled with “close-ups” and pictures of 50 different creatures.

How to use “What am I?”:

Use the following pictures on a Smartboard, in small groups or individually to introduce and teach the reading comprehension strategy of inferring.

Begin by having my students look closely at the picture of the close-up. Ask them what they see or observe in this picture? What details do they notice? What do they see when looking “closely”? What might they infer this is, based on what they see in the close-up?

Next, have your students make a list of clues or evidence to support their conclusions about the close-up. Using the clues or evidence, what inference can they make about what this creature is? Have them use their evidence to support their conclusions.

Common Core Standards introduced or covered include:

RL.1 and RIT.1 – Ask and answer questions about key details in a text

SL.2 – Recount or describe key ideas or details from a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media

SL.3 – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 3 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly. (Determine the main ideas and supporting details of a text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally)

SL.4 – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

Any claims of correlation or alignment to the CCSS or WIDA ELD Standards are solely those of Tools for Teachers by Kyp McLaren and have not been evaluated or endorsed by WIDA or the NGA.

Kyp McLaren is the sole creator of this product and is not associated with the entities who created the standards.

Thesis Writing Activity

Thesis Writing Activity

 

Product Description

We all know that the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. This is also the part of the essay with which students have the most difficulty.

When you are able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a work, you are able to write better yourself.

Topic: Is knowledge good or destructive? The subject is interesting, and can be used along with many different types of literature, or on its own.

In this bundle, I’ve included an interactive PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:

-The definition of a thesis statement
-How to write a thesis statement (and the steps to take leading up to the thesis)
-5 examples of thesis statements, where students must identify both the weaknesses and the strengths
-10 slides explaining the strengths in the examples and the weaknesses in the examples
-1 example of a well-written thesis statement, and an explanation about why it’s good.

To accompany the PowerPoint presentation, I’ve included a student activity sheet with a list of all of the examples written in the PPT. (PDF format) 

Also included is a lesson plan with details regarding the PowerPoint and activity sheet.

As a bonus, I’ve also included 2 posters listing the 7 essential steps to writing a great thesis. I’ve included an image format and a PDF format for easy printing. 

-the first poster measures 70 cm (27.6 inches)
-the second poster, which students can actually read from far away, measures 97 cm (38.2 inches)

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Literary Device Task Cards (Free)”

by Juggling ELA

6th – 10th Grade

 

 

Are you tired of using handouts? Are you looking for a good way to differentiate? Have you tried using task cards? Task Cards are a great teaching tool that can be used in a variety of ways.

You can:
1) Put all the cards on a ring and give each student (or group) a set of cards.
2) Leave the cards loose and give different students (or groups) different cards depending upon their level.
3) Give students a choice (Pick 6 out of the 8 cards.)

There are 8 cards all together in this task card set and an additional 4 blank cards for you to write in any prompts you’d like to add to the set.

You can have students respond to every card, have them pick a certain amount of cards or assign the cards to students depending upon their level.

The cards will can be used for:

Do Now Activities/Bell Ringers
Discussion Starters
Entrance/Exit Tickets

I would print out the task cards on card stock and laminate them so you can use them more than once.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Death of a Salesman Unit (Complete No Prep)

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Death-of-a-Salesman-Unit-Complete-No-Prep-1610583

 

Death of a Salesman Unit (Complete No Prep)

Product Description

Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman used to be one of my least favorite plays to teach. I found it depressing, and I had a difficult time teaching it in a way that was meaningful to students. Then, I created this bundle so that students would not only learn about drama, tragedy, irony, etc. but also think about their own futures, while they are contemplating their post-secondary education. While Willy Loman’s dreams are unrealistic and unattainable, students contemplate their own dreams, strengths, and weaknesses. You will definitely have more than a few excellent discussions when teaching this play.

This unit has been conceived with the teacher in mind. It contains a Student Guide, a Teacher Guide, and a comprehensive Answer Key. All you have to do is print the packages and teach them. It’s as easy as that! I’ve also included two different options for end unit evaluations, which both contain evaluation grids and answer key. The unit is, in my opinion, visually appealing and the contents teach analysis of literature.

What the bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.) 
The Student Guide contain 16 pages: 
-Notes on the American Dream
-An anticipation guide
-An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which can, later on, be related to the play.)
-Thematic comprehension questions for each act
-Work on motifs and symbols used in the play
-Work on characterization
-Poem association (Langston Hughe’s poem)
-Notes on tragedy (Aristotle’s definition and modern definition)
-Review notes for students

Answer Key contains 29 pages: 
-Answers to ALL of the students’ work
-Introduction to Arthur Miller
-Comprehensive notes on each scene of the play (to help students understand and appreciate literary techniques used by the author)
-List of themes and how they are developed – Revue sheet
Final evaluation contains three different options:
1) A unit test with answer key. Contains 3 essay type questions.
2) A unit test – paragraph format
3) An essay. Contains essay topics, work process (steps 1…..), an outline guide, and an evaluation grid.

ALL EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS AND INCLUDE A COMPREHENSIVE ANSWER KEY.

The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:
-Includes 8 complete lessons that leave the teacher nothing to do, but to teach.
Lesson 1: Historical context and pre-reading
Lesson 2: Setting and reading (there are specific pages assigned to each lesson)
Lesson 3: Symbols, Motifs and reading the play
Lesson 4: Character chart and reading the play
Lesson 5: Reading – exploring irony and the meaning of the title
Lesson 6: Reading and a look at the difference between modern and classic tragedy
Lesson 7: Theme development and review
Lesson 8: Evaluation (Option 1 – test (answer key included), Option 2 – Essay (evaluation grid, work process, outline included)

FREE Math Talk Questions Poster

 

What questions do I ask to encourage math talk? 

Creating a classroom where students are able to effectively use math talk during a classroom discussion can be challenging. Many of our
students do not know how to communicate their mathematical ideas and strategies using key math vocabulary and concepts. As teachers, we play an important role as we help students identify their thinking processes and build new knowledge by connecting to ideas and concepts that they already understand.
The Open-Ended Questions poster includes questions to promote mathematical communication in the classroom. You can use these questions to expand a conversation or to get one started. Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of the poster. 
Want to know more? 
Head on over to The Routty Math Teacher website and read my latest post, “What Engagement Tools Do I Need to Teach Math” where I share five of my favorite ways to engage my math students. I also share a free resource with 26 ways to engage your students. Read the post here or by clicking on the image below.

English Grammar Cheat Sheet

 

Product Description

This “Cheat Sheet” was designed to help students while writing in English. This at a glance 2 page sheet is colorful and has an easy to find layout to help students remember certain important things while they write.

I allow my students to use this in class when writing a test. This is not a grammar lesson, but it will remind students about the grammar they’ve learned in the past.

Some of the reminders included:

– parts of speech
– transitional words
– quotation marks (how and when to use them)
– basic sentence structure
– spelling tips (plurals of nouns and IE rule)
– puncutaion rules (apostrophe, colon, semicolon

The other side of the page has comma rules:
– with coordinate conjunctions
-with introductory elements
– with other elements (dates, parenthetical expression, nouns in a direct address)
– with adjectives
-with appositives

It also contains tips on things to avoid, such as writing a paragraph shorter than 4 sentences. And, it contains a list of things to do, such as make sure that your paragraphs contain at least 2 pieces of evidence.

It’s teaching made easy!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Sight Words Activity & Bulletin Board {FREE}”

by Fun Hands-on Learning

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

Teaching sight words along side phonics helps give students a firm foundation in both phonetic reading and whole-language. I focus most of our reading practice on phonics, but I do enjoy paring up sight word exercises to help build fluency. In this activity, students will practice pre-primer sight words. Students will trace a sight word fish every time they learn a new one, and add it to their fishing pond. You can do this on a wall, bulletin-board, or even just keep them all together in a bag and pull them out as you are learning. Make two copies of the sight word fish and you can play a sight-word memory/matching game too!

Poetry Through Song -  A No Prep Unit

 

Product Description
Half price for a limited time only!

Teach the art of poetry through song lyrics

I love teaching poetry! I love it when my student like learning it too.

So many students dislike poetry that I wanted to create a unit just for them. This unit takes a different approach to teaching poetry all while allowing students to be critical of the songs they hear on the radio. This unit teaches the same skills as traditional poetry units do, but does it more lightly.

Take a look at what is included in this bundle:

An introductory video on how to approach poetry throughout the unit see video here Poetry Through Song Introduction Video

A Figurative Language Bingo Game to make learning and reviewing figurative language more fun.

The Teacher Guide includes 13 complete lessons focusing on and building on specific skills with each lesson

The Student Guide includes the following:

-notes on how to approach poetry

-notes on poetic devices and figurative language

– A copy of the following songs: Malibu, Roar, Scars to your Beautiful, Golden Leaves, Sound of Silence, There were Roses, The Cave, Something Just Like This, and Lost Boy. A wide variety of songs are included.

-Activities accompany every song (Theme and meaning, historical and literary allusions, the meaning of pronouns, Thematic connection exercises, video comparison activity, fun with allusions, fun with metaphors, fun with idioms, and much more.) See the preview for more details.

The Answer Key includes the answers to all questions and activities and comes with detailed annotations of each poem.

A Culminating Task with rubric included (in Word format for easy modifications)

140 pages included + 1 video
