Teach Your Students This Gerund “Trick”!

Gerunds, infinitives, and participles, OH MY! Yeah. . .they are not the most titillating thing in the world to teach. In fact, when I had to teach the unit, I had to relearn all the terminology all over again (honestly, I don’t even recall any of my teachers specifically teaching the “gerund.” Hmmmm). Thus, why I think the most confusing aspect of the Verbals is the gerund: firstly, it’s hard to pronounce, and, secondly, what the HECK is its function?! (Even though I pronounced it correctly several times a day, half the students still insisted on calling it a “Grrrr-uh-nd.” Um. Nope, but as long as you know what it does, you could call it “Sally” for all I care! 🙂 )

Anywho, I came up with a “trick” that works almost every time when trying to detect a gerund in a sentence. I call it the “IT” rule. “IT” definitely helped my students become much more clear on if the -ing word was a gerund or just a participle. So here is my simple  “IT” trick:

Because a gerund functions as a noun, I taught my students to replace the -ing word with a noun in the sentence: “IT.” If the sentence still makes sense, it’s probably (stress the probably) a gerund. For example:

Example 1: She loves dancing.

Change to: She loves IT.

YEP! We have a gerund!

Example 2: She is dancing in the rain.

Change to: She is IT in the rain.

Hmmm, NOPE. Not a gerund.

You may not like this trick or it may work really well for you. Either way, I am just glad I can share!

Happy gerund-ing!

FREE LESSON: Using Book Trailers in the Classroom

By:  The Owl Teacher

Grades 2-5

 

SSUCv3H4sIAAAAAAAEAJ2SwW7CMAyG70i8Q+VzNaUq3aS9CuJg0oxFBCzVDgihvjtp0kAYEofd7M/5/zh2rstFVcEW2Wr4rq5TFnLrnGcZUCwdA1b1zE1vhQaLboITG2MFWFA8Gy4s+NeLmIGF9D7gtjitUcwu2Dydzy2sU17lQiwGRSgB1AVjv40so7H+tzIFm/xK3Jmjvjx6e33NunB7sm6au+vmzuGHhJzFd8JWqbZTTffx1amHRQrGYnaDcQbTpGcvWDUqW8FKfUZ1uhz259D0IY551p9sb6jI0feWijWcSKPjvwsLn4EOUbVcjDfUqvAMMwIAAA==

 

I love to get students hooked on reading and with all the technology in their faces, I thought I’d take advantage of that.  I decided it was time to hook them on book trailers.

Book Trailers are just like movie trailers, where they show you clipits of the book.  It’s usually just enough to get you excited and want to read the book.  You can find many book trailers on the internet to interest your students.

Since we have so many standards to tackle, this project was amazing at meeting many of them – including technology, writing, and reading.

You can read all about it here at my blog- along with receiving a free download of the expectations and a grading rubric.  While you are there, consider following my blog or signing up for my newsletter where you can get freebies once a month!

FREE LESSON: Reading Ladder of Complexity

By:  The Owl Teacher

Grades 2-5

With the new common core, we now have to make sure our students are reading at their highest able level and that their text is more complex than before.  It’s in the standards, whether anyone likes it or not.

During a reading workshop that I attended, I heard about this idea that helps release students gradually into the world of more complex texts.  It’s called using the ladder of complexity.

ladderofcomplexity

Here students start reading a book that they would normally choose and then work their way up to a more complex text.  They also explain why they believe the book is more complex.  Of course, you can always make sure you instruct students on what makes a text more complex.  There is more detailed information on my blog where you can download this free organizer.  Just click here.

FREE LESSON – Speaking and Listening Task Cards

By:  The Owl Teacher

Grades 2- 5

Common Core is now focusing on more than just simple reading skills and strategies!  It’s also making sure that your students are able to communicate and listen well.  (Of course, my district was implementing something similar prior but it was not emphasized as much as now.)

I struggled in the beginning trying to figure out just how I was going to teach my third graders to listen.  Imagine – if there was ever a teacher that could actually 100% teach students to listen… he or she would be sensation!  A millionaire…

Ah, but I’m not here to dream or to convince you that I have the fool proof secret.  But I am here to give you a FREE tool that I use in the classroom to help my students work on this important life skill!

speakinglistening15

First head over to my blog by clicking here and download these really neat task cards!  Then print them in the colors you desire, cut them out, and laminate them back to back.  Cut a small slit along the bottom of the laminated card to insert a craft stick with a dab of hot glue.  Viola!  You have handy task cards!  (Of course, you can eliminate the stick!)

speakinglistening11

Here is a picture of both sides so you can see the thinking stems for both the speaker and the listener:

Speaking and Listening Cards

I hope these cards are useful for implementing those common core standards of speaking and listening… and hey, if you do manage to figure out the mysterious way to get *any* kid to truly 100% listen, be sure to let me know!  🙂

MATH LESSON – Place Value and Rounding Unit

By:  The Owl Teacher

3rd Grade

I love Math Workshop!

Ever since the implementation of reading workshop and writing workshop, I have been hooked!

I love the structure of it and how engaging it is for kids.  Plus, with all these students struggling to focus for long periods of time- it’s perfect for them!

Since most people are relatively new to math workshop, I have created detailed and engaging lesson plans to help teachers implement it in their classroom, without the fear of losing important instructional time while learning all the many other new practices!

Mathworkshopunit

My Place Value and Rounding Unit (Titled Number Sense) is a great unit to start off Math Workshop with!  In this unit, there are 15 days of detailed, scripted lesson plans!  Of course, you are not obligated to utilize the script, it is only there to assist you in becoming familiar with the workshop language.

This unit contains a pretest to help you target the specific needs of your students along with a post test to see how well it went!  Additionally it contains the all important common core vocabulary on cards for your word wall or anytime you need them.

Each lesson contains a warm up activity, a mini-lesson, guided practice, independent practice, and a closing!  Of course there are also practice sheets, answer keys, and games to assist your students in learning!

Of course, it’s a hands-on unit, so you can expect lots of concrete activities with manipulatives to help all learners grasp the important common core standards.  Finally, to ensure I meet the various needs in your classroom, each lesson contains intervention suggestions and enrichment options!

This Workshop Unit is DEFINITELY worth it!

Read some of the reviews received so far:

Beth says:  “This product is AMAZING! Not only have you have thought of every single detail, but you have laid it out in a beautiful way that is easy for kids to use and keeps them engaged. Thank you for including visuals like anchor charts for each lesson and vocabulary cards. This will really help the students understand the concepts more clearly. I especially love that you even included scripted lesson plans. They will be really helpful when I have tutors or others pull kids for intensive intervention because it will guide them on exactly what to say! I also appreciate that you included standards for grades 2-4 so that these lessons can both remediate and enrich depending on the needs of the students. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Will you be making more sets for other math standards? (I hope so!)”

Mary says:  “Wow! You have put a lot of time and thought into this unit. It will be wonderful to have something to help me with guided math workshop for my students with special needs. I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with 3 groups, but this will help me teach everyone the basic concept and then differentiate to meet their needs!”

Your students will love these 5 scavenger hunts about the U.S. Regions.  This is a bundle of the 5 regions into one, so you can click print and have a great supplemental activity for your class. Each region contains 25 task cards for a total of 120 task cards and 120 questions for the bundle.  Your students will learn at least one fact for state and also national monuments, famous buildings, national parks and tourist attractions.

 

Slide1You can use these cards in anyway you want for your classroom, but this is how I use them in my class.

 

1.  Print the region that you are currently working on in class.

2.  Cut the task cards apart and print the student questions for students.

3.  Tape the cards around your classroom or hallway.

4.  Let the students hunt for the cards and answer the questions on their sheets.

5.  Answer keys are included for quick grading.

 

My students beg me to keep working on this activity and I really truly believe that the movement of walking around the classroom searching for cards helps them remember more facts.

Here is an example of the task cards and questions from the Northeast Region.

Reptiles Scavenger Hunt!

 

Slide1I started making these scavenger hunts to support science in my classroom. However, what I found was that these hunts are a great way to also support reading.  Students read to find information about reptiles and then answer questions.  It works great a supplement to your science curriculum.

 

Reptile Scavenger Hunt

 

Here is a picture of the task cards. There are 20 total task cards.  Hang them up around the room and it lets kids get moving while they answering questions. Trust me they will love this activity, my students beg for them.

 

Slide6

Here is a picture of what the question pages look like.  One thing that I will be doing next year to extend my higher kids, is to have them write their own questions.  The lower learners can still participate with the already made questions.

Slide2

 

This is my first science scavenger hunt, but I’m working on more this summer.  If you have a topic you would like a scavenger hunt for leave a comment for this post with your email and topic.

Free Money Bingo Pic

Get a Math Centers Pack

Designed for third and fourth grade math centers, Money Bingo features an online bingo caller that will work on most personal computers with internet access. It can also be played on an an interactive whiteboard. Use the online bingo caller to draw random question cards and to display called answers while students play along with their own printed bingo cards.

This download features 4 player cards that can be printed either in black and white or in color. I prefer to print in black and white, as the students need to make calculations and write on their bingo cards.

The game is common core aligned for Third and Fourth Grades as follows:

Third Grade:
CCSS Math Content 3.NBT.A.2
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
-Making change for purchases made with five and ten dollar bills
-Adding / subtracting to determine difference between the amount of money available and the listed price (i.e. The listed price is $3.50. You have 90 cents. How much more money do you need?

Fourth Grade:
CCSS Math.Content.4.MD.A.2
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit.
-Making change for purchases made with five and ten dollar bills
-Adding / subtracting to determine difference between the amount of money available and the listed price (i.e. The listed price is $3.50. You have 90 cents. How much more money do you need?
-Simple multiplication / division to determine money equivalents ( i.e. How many dimes are in a five dollar bill?)
