Thesis Writing Poster




Product Description

As any English teacher can tell you, the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. It defines the arguments and orients the reader. Unfortunately, many students have difficulty with the thesis statement. This is why I have created the “7 Steps to Writing an Effective Thesis Statement” poster.

The poster is a step by step guide on how to write the thesis starting with selecting a topic the student understands and walks them through the process until the end.

I am making the poster available in different formats for facility of use in the classroom:

– The first format measures 70 cm (27.6 inches) (easy printing) PDF
– The second format measure 97 cm (38.2) – information can be more easily read from further away (easy printing) PDF
– One smaller poster PDF
– An image format JPEG

FREE MISC. LESSON – “FREEBIE: Brain Sprinkles and Shhhh Spray Labels”

by Primary Paradise

Pre-Kindergarten – 5th Grade



Sometimes our students could use a little magic in their lives. Use these two labels to create some magical Brain Sprinkles and Shhhh Spray.

Brain Sprinkles are used to give a student’s brain an extra boost before a test, when they’re stuck on a problem, or when they’re just having a rough day. Just shake some brain sprinkles over their head and watch the light bulb moment happen! (A lot of time when when students are stuck, they really need to just relax and destress. Brain Sprinkles are a fun way to make students smile and relax a bit which helps get their creative juices flowing again)

Shhhh Spray is used to help students who need a magical reminder to quiet down. This can be used before a test, before walking in the hallway, or any time. Just spray some Shhhh Spray in the air and watch the voice turn off magically! I don’t spray Shhhh Spray at a specific student, rather I freshen the air with it like air freshener. (Note: make sure the spray bottle is cleaned our and empty)

I like to use both Brain Sprinkles and Shhhh Spray right before a big test.

I hope you enjoy!
