We Teach So Hard…Episode 29… What Teachers Wished the Public Understood About Teaching

Calling all #LOSER teachers! This episode is just for you. Join us as we laugh, cry (and maybe rage, a little) about what we wish people understood about teaching. We’ll explore public perceptions, funding, political perceptions, and how we rise above the crap. You don’t want to miss this one!

Free Inference Cheat Sheet

Product Description

Do your students insert examples and quotes into their texts without properly analyzing them? Without proper analysis, an essay can sound like a long, drawn-out list written in complete sentences. We teach students to infer and to analyze, but they sometimes forget to incorporate this into their texts and essays.

I have created an “Inference Cheat Sheet” with key inferencing words and phrases to remind students that after inserting a piece of evidence, they need to explain its relevance.

Included are:

  • Two different styles of the at-a-glance “Cheat Sheet.”
  • An inference poster (8.5×11) – as seen on the cover.
  • Two different styles of letters for an inference bulletin board.
  • A copy of ALL the phrases used on the Cheat Sheet to create a bulletin board in class.

I hope that this resource will be helpful to students in your classes.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE: Body-Spelling Sight Words PowerPoint”

40% OFF: Body-Spelling Sight Words BUNDLE

Sight word fluency is so important, yet many kids struggle to build and retain a strong sight word vocabulary, despite a variety of approaches. 

Movement has been scientifically proven to be linked with increased academic performance! Most students are kinesthetic learners and using their bodies to spell words is a great way to incorporate movement into sight word instruction!

This PowerPoint presentation is a free sample of my Body-Spelling PowerPoint resource. It includes the sight word ‘the’ for you to try with your students.

With this PowerPoint, you’ll be able to introduce sight words using all 4 learning styles:

❶ Visual– students read the target sight word, and again in context

➋ Auditory– students say, spell, and hear the sight word

❸ Reading & Writing– students read and write the word on whiteboards or in a student notebook

➍ Kinesthetic– students sky-write and body-spell the sight word

In addition to targeting the 4 learning styles, this method teaches the sight word in context, ensuring comprehension.

If you own my Ultimate Sight Words Bundle, you get this resource free, as it has been added to the bundle!
