In creative writing, the only thing that will keep the reader engaged in your story until the last page is by building effective suspense. This resource includes a visual chart of the different types of suspense to include in writing and includes relevant examples and tips to achieve it.

In addition, also included in this resource are two suspense building activities and 4 pages of notes on how to effectively build suspense within any type of story.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Number Strip Visual Aid Freebie”

by Laura Lanzi
Kindergarten – 5th Grade

This Number Strip was designed with adaptive learning in mind. It features large easy to read numbers (0 through 20) for simple, frustration free counting. It is great for counting out manipulatives and counting forwards and backwards.

This Number strip can be laminated and used anywhere! Or tape it directly to the students work space for an accessible visual aid.

This number strip is featured in my 0 to 20 Number Sense Spring Garden Unit as visual aid for counting out seeds to “plant” in a garden! Take a minute to look at the preview within the link above and see how it works!
