FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Close Reading Companion: Tacky the Penguin”

by Tessa Maguire

1st – 3rd Grade

Close Reading pushes students beyond traditional reading comprehension activities, and into thinking not only what the text says, but also how it says it. This Close Reading Companion for Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester walks you through first, second, and third readings with your students. It includes questions for the second and third readings as you focus on the author’s craft and text structure, and into third readings as students go beyond the text to make connections and determine the text’s importance.

Each Close Reading Companion includes

•Questions for guided second and third readings

•Graphic organizers for first, second and third readings

•Written response pages

Note: This is my interpretation on close reading with these books. No part of the original text is reprinted in this product.

For more detailed information on how I do close reading, please see this post on my blog.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Christmas Party Game Printable Freebie – Stick the Nose on the Reindeer”

by HappyEdugator

1st – 4th Grade

A fun Christmas Party Game! Stick or Pin the Nose on the Reindeer. Try this quick little game that is fun for all ages. Print out the reindeer with no nose, and then hang it up on the wall. Use a red pom pom for the nose for Rudolph or a black one if you want to make a different reindeer or caribou. Instead of using pins, get some petroleum jelly, put some where the nose is supposed to go, and give each contestant a dab on their nose! Kids have to stick a pom pom on their nose, walk over to the reindeer poster, and attempt to transfer the pom pom nose to the reindeer’s face! It’s pretty difficult, so no blindfolds are necessary! Enjoy this free printable for some quick fun this Christmas at school or at home for your holiday gathering! Merry Christmas!

FREE MISC. LESSON – “On the 12th Day of December My Teacher Gave to Me… Sample Freebie!”

by Mercedes Merrell

1st – 2nd Grade

This is a FREEBIE SAMPLE of my original song and unit that go with “On the 12th Day of December My Teacher Gave to Me…Math and Literacy Centers. If you like the song freebie, please consider purchasing the complete product. The complete product is particularly perfect for math and literacy centers. In that I have provided a poster form to either be used on the overhead projector, or hang up for students to see, and a Teacher Read- Aloud that I like to use to introduce the unit. There is a choice of student booklets, a full- size-page black and white that matches the teacher read-aloud, or a half-page version, whichever works for you. The activities are tried and true in my own classroom as well as my colleagues’! My song, as the original, plays on ordinal and number words, sequencing, repetition… I have added prompts for writing problem-solving stories, and other activities to give our students lots of writing practice, while they are having some fun. It all culminates in the “Snow Globe-shaped writing journal! Also included in the paid unit are vocabulary, number and number word cards, as well as math and writing task cards, sequencing the 12 parts of the song, mixed up sentences, and a labeling activity. It is my sincere wish that you and your students enjoy my song, and that you consider taking a closer look at the complete unit of work! Thanks again!!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Tiger Rising Novel Study Resources Freebie Kate DiCamillo Common Core”

by James Whitaker

5th – 12th Grade

The Tiger Rising
(by Kate DiCamillo)
Novel Study and Unit Resources Freebie
by James D. Whitaker

*** FULL NOVEL STUDY: THE TIGER RISING NOVEL STUDY ***

Product/Materials Preface [Grades 5-12]

This English Language Arts Novel Study and Unit Resource Freebie is part of my 140+-page Mega Study and celebrates the Kate DiCamillo’s thematically rich novel The Tiger Rising. I was more familiar with DiCamillo’s more upbeat tales: Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux, but I recently picked up The Tiger Rising, quickly devoured it, and it is now my favorite of her of novels. So, I thought I’d throw together this thought provoking and powerful novel study to help my colleagues share the endearing story with their students. Nevertheless, the tale is rich in theme and takes us on a tour de force through the mind of a young, grief-stricken protagonist. The story grapples bullying, emotional imprisonment, the search for a kindred spirit and ultimately redemption.

This Freebie Includes (23 pages):

5: Overview of High Order Thinking Concepts in The Tiger Rising
6-7: Character Description Blurb GO with Characters Written In
8: In-depth Synopsis and Chapter Reflection, Analysis, Evaluation Template [Any Chapter]
9: Kate DiCamillo Author Card

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Compound Word Flip Book II”

by Nicole Rios

1st – 3rd Grade

This Christmas-themed freebie is a fun and interactive way to have students practice working with compound words. This freebie focuses on getting students to think about the meaning of the individual words within a compound word, and how it contributes to the overall meaning. (Aligns to Common Core for 2nd grade)

(NOTE: If you enjoy using this freebie with your students, please consider my Crazy for Compound Words – All Year Long packet available for purchase, in my store. It includes this activity, as well as 8 more activities, including matching activities for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Easter/Spring, Patriotic/4th of July, so that your students will have many opportunities for repeated practice.)

Enjoy!

Nicole
