Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

Description

Superhero themed Parts of speech Grammar Circle Unit

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit grammar in with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages, and then we would correct them together. It was tedious, and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and Learn grammar. Although this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do other than to facilitate and supervise.

Once these circles have been implemented and students know who their group members are and what they are supposed to do, it is a great prep to leave a supply teacher.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (27 pages)

Activities included focus on:

❒nouns

❒adjectives

❒verbs

❒adverbs

❒prepositions

❒conjunctions

❒putting it all together

❒correct use of pronouns

❒who and whom

❒that and which

❒who’s and whose

❒that and who

❒pronoun case

❒pronoun agreement

❒active and passive voice

❒verb tenses (present, past, future)

❒verb uses (consistency in verb tenses)

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their work and learn from one another.

Also included are free Superhero Themed Parts of Speech Posters to decorate your class.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to learn parts of speech.

Comment Bank

Description

Do you run out of meaningful criticism for your students’ high school papers and work?

I created this comment bank because I had the same problem. After a little while, you don’t know what to write on a student’s test.

The Comment Bank has been constructed to save the Language Arts teacher time when offering constructive and helpful comments on students’ evaluations. Marking papers in any Language Arts class is always a lengthy process. Increasingly, teachers are being asked to write more detailed comments to highlight students’ strengths and weaknesses, and sometimes we run out of ideas. Being the vigilant teachers we are, and wanting to help our students achieve their potential is and will always be one of our priorities. To this end, when marking students’ papers, writing down everything we want to say to them about their papers would be a very lengthy process. I have decided to share my personal comment bank with you.

The bank comments on the following areas:

❒Structure

❒Communication

❒The next step

❒Mechanics

❒Style

❒Persuasion

❒Analysis


The package contains 7 pages of comments, which are divided by levels of accomplishment A, B, C and D. (levels 100 to 50)

Included in this package are over 120 comments for students. You can get inspiration from these pages to handwrite your comments, or you can do what I do and copy/paste your comments into a word document, print, and staple the comment to the students’ evaluations. This is a real time saver. Parents, students, and school administration LOVE this method of feedback. And, this way, it takes much less time to be much more efficient. I hope you enjoy it!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Alphabet Writing Video – Bb – Free!!”

by A Turn to Learn
Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Teach your students the right way to write their uppercase and lowercase letters with these engaging videos! These 5 minute long videos will have your students “reading” along with a catchy poem that will help them remember the way to properly write their letters!

HOW DO I USE THE VIDEO?
Just open it up and press play for your students! No prep needed!

HOW WILL THE VIDEO ENGAGE STUDENTS?
The video introduces students to the poems by having students echo read them. Then, the video also traces the letters (with a visual) while repeating the poem in order to provide students with a visual of how to write the letter. I always use this as the opportunity to have students “air write” the letter.

It also includes the famous, “Some letters are tall, some letters are small, some letters fall.” and challenges students to figure out if the lowercase letter is small, tall, or if it falls! It then reviews the two poems for students.

HOW CAN I REINFORCE THE POEMS AFTER THE VIDEO?
Use any (or all) of these files:
• Alphabet Writing Practice for the Smartboard: After showing the video, I do some group practice on the smartboard using this file, having students take turns coming up and writing their letters while practicing the alphabet formation poem.
• Handwriting Book (with the poems!): Have students practice their letter formation with the poems right in front of them!
• Alphabet Writing/Formation Signs: I post our current poems on the board for the day, then place them in a binder afterwards for students to reference.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE VIDEOS FOR THE OTHER LETTERS?
The links to the other videos in this series are:
• Letter Aa – FREE!
• Letter Bb – FREE!
• Letter Cc
• Letter Dd
• Letter Ee
• Letter Ff
• Letter Gg
• Letter Hh
• Letter Ii
• Letter Jj
• Letter Kk
• Letter Ll
• Letter Mm
• Letter Nn
• Letter Oo
• Letter Pp
• Letter Qq
• Letter Rr
• Letter Ss
• Letter Tt
• Letter Uu
• Letter Vv
• Letter Ww
• Letter Xx
• Letter Yy
• Letter Zz

SIDE NOTE:
The video also informally introduces consonants and vowels – the backgrounds of vowels are in red, while the backgrounds of consonants are in blue.

Enjoy!

Rejoice! It’s the End of the School Year

Rejoice, it’s the end of the school year. We’re so eager for summer that we sometimes forget about all the things we have to do for the last few weeks of school.  Hopefully, you’ll be celebrating a successful year with our students.  For those of you who didn’t have a great year, it’s time to cheer, you never have to see this group of kids again, at least not in your classroom. 

**************************************************
 
Welcoming the Summer Slide
It’s an exhilarating time of the year! Testing should be over by now (Pleeeease tell me that’s true for you!), classrooms are getting packed up and summerized, and we’re celebrating all the learning that has happened for our students in this important piece of their childhood.
**************************************************
Patriotic Karaoke

If your classes need a pick-me-up before the school year ends, consider patriotic karaoke for some rousing fun with educational value.

**************************************************
 
Create a Focused Learning Environment using Feng Shui for the Classroom

by Master Xuan
Kindergarten – 12th Grade

12 Chinese Brag Tag or Affirmation to give to students. Print them out on cardstock or plain paper, laminate them (if you wish), and cut them out!

I have prepared 30 words of affirmation but not sure would it be useful or is there a market for it. Hence, I decided to give 12 basic brag tag for free to test the water.

Do leave feedback and let me know:

– Do you think it is useful

– Would you be willing to buy something similar

– Dimension of brag tag

– Would you prefer it without a line for name or a line to write the name

– Specific words of affirmation

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Teaching Theme Printables – Anchor Charts, Mentor Texts, Practice Pages”

by Kristine Nannini
3rd – 6th Grade

FREE Theme Printables (Anchor Charts, Mentor Texts, Practice Pages)

Determining theme is a higher-order thinking skill that many students may struggle to grasp at first. The reason for this struggle is that theme is inferred (unless your students are reading fables with explicitly stated morals).

The goal of this free resource is to help your students understand the concept of theme and provide them with multiple opportunities to practice, and eventually master, this concept.

Included in this free resource:

-Three Printable Determining Theme Anchor Charts

-Determining Theme Mentor Text Recommendations

-Printable Practice Pages (The Invisible Boy and a blank generic version)

-Clickable link to my Theme: Differentiated Reading Passages and Questions

These resources compliment my informative blog post at Young Teacher Love Blog.
